The Greatest Showman Question

Who would you cast in the upcoming Broadway adaptation of The Greatest Showman?

It was recently announced that there is going to be a Broadway stage version of The Greatest Showman. This is something I've been hoping would happen for a LONG time because of how much potential there is for this show. Since Broadway shows are longer than movies and do make changes to their movie counterparts, they can actually fix some of the problems from the movie and even expand upon and flesh out more of the "freak" characters. Plus, a bonus for me personally is that it won't have Zendaya in it but you all already know how much I despise her and how miscast I think she was in the movie. Anyway, I thought it would be fun to make this question asking what Broadway actors/singers would be good casting choices for the show. Here are mine.

Ramin Karimloo as P.T. Barnum (Some of his well-known are Phantom of the Opera, Anastasia, and Les Miserables)

Jeremy Jordan as Phillip Carlyle (Some of his well-known roles are Newsies, The Last Five Years, Joyful Noise, and the Bonnie & Clyde musical)

Sierra Boggess as Charity Barnum (Her best-known roles are originating the role of Ariel in The Little Mermaid on Broadway and Christine Daaé in Phantom of the Opera alongside Ramin)

Keala Settle as Lettie Lutz (I don't think I need to explain this one)

Anneliese van der Pol as Jenny Lind (Some of her well-known Broadway roles are being the last actress to play Belle in the Broadway version of Beauty and the Beast, the younger actress to play Evita in a professional theatre, and originating the role of iconic comedian Lucille Ball in a new show called The Cuban and the Redhead)

Keke Palmer as Anne Wheeler (Some musical credits include Joyful Noise, Hairspray Live!, and a stage production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella as the first black woman to play Cinderella on stage)
