I thought I would share this. It's quite interesting.

Interesting. I would have guessed it had to do, in part, to the type of role. That is, whether or not it's a minor role or major role
e.g. Annie vs. Eponine

Annie is certainly more demanding than the roles mentioned in the article but Annie is almost always played by one child (with an understudy, of course). Yet, the other roles are split. That doesn't make sense to me. More children also means more parents involved. If I were a producer/on the creative team, the fewer parents involved the better! LOL

I forgot that Sarah Hyland, Molly in the ABC Annie film, was in Grey Gardens. Wonder what she is doing now?

I didn't know that. I don't watch that show, that's probably why

Seems like a lame show. Is it?

But good for her for getting a job. It's hard when you're a teenager, I think. And she is late-teens, no?

Has anyone heard whether it will be Marissa or Sarah on the Shrek cast recording, if they release one?

Believe it or not, I've never seen Shrek. I attempted to watch it several times and I couldn't get into it.

So, I don't even know the story. Well, other than pretty girl marries ugly guy. Ya know, like all the sitcoms on tv

Check your sources. She did the role in the reading, but Marrissa will probably not be sharing it on Broadway.

Just wanted to clarify the 2nd post by "another mom" is by someone else. I'll add a (1) from now on.
