    Everyone from the movie, with the exception of Rosario Dawson and Tracie Thoms....

    Anthony Rapp...Mark

    Adam Pascal...Roger

    Wilson Jermaine Heredia...Angel

    Jesse L. Martin...Collins

    Idina Menzel...Maureen

    Taye Diggs...Benny

    Daphne Rubin-Vega played Mimi and Fredi Walker played Joanne.

    *If you have the movie, the 2nd DVD has commentary with all of the originals.*

    I'm not good with remembering characters names, but if Joanne was the lawyer she was not in the original play and neither was Mimi for sure but all the other main characters were, Roger, Mark, Maureen, Benjy (Benny?), Angel, Collins,
