I would like to have a link to, or somehow hear, the original cast recording they were talking about. I mean, I'm a little too poor for B-way.

Yvonne Strahovski was hardly an unknown before this production. She costarred in the spy comedy "Chuck" on NBC (I think--could be wrong about which network).

And I first saw Tony Shalhoub on "Wings." He played a waiter in what was apparently meant to be a 1-time appearance & stole the show so completely that he was brought back as a regular the next season. Or at least that's how it looked to me!

For me Tony Shaloub will forever be indelibly cast in my mind as Adrian Monk the "defective detective," probably the best comedic detective show since "Columbo" of four decades ago. I have watched each episode at least a half dozen or more times. I still watch reruns of Monk.

Nice to see how broad Tony's acting range in what he's doing on Broadway today. But still I hope at some point he decides to return as Monk to a fresh revival of the series. I just couldn't get enough of Monk.
