I want to thank my colleague the amazing Ruth Iniesta for jumping into the second act on short notice. She’s a superstar and the audience will be so happy.”

Iniesta is currently performing the role as part of the second cast and performed on April 13. For the April 14 performance, she joined John Osborn, Roberto Tagliavini, Monica Bacelli, and Francesca Benitez.

Oropesa is set to return to the production on April 16, 2024.
