Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category Broadway Musicals) for Tuesday, January 11, 2022 (Season 38, Game 87):
Each in a show that ran more than 2 years, Ethel Merman & Sarah Jessica Parker played 2 different characters with this first name
(correct response beneath the contestants)
|Brigid Hogan, a server from Ephraim, Wisconsin
|Steve Chanderbhan, a philosophy professor from Lewiston, New York
|Amy Schneider, an engineering manager from Oakland, California (29-day total: $1,035,400)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Amy Schneider looks to close out her sixth full week as Jeopardy! champion today and become only the 4th player in Jeopardy! history to win 30 games. Over 29 games, Amy has picked up 923 correct responses (23 of those in Final Jeopardy); I would expect that correct response #1,000 will come on Thursday (Assuming that she makes it that far, of course).
PSA: The best way to keep COVID-19 at bay (and keep Jeopardy! producing new episodes) is for everybody to get their vaccinations as soon as they are able to, including any boosters as recommended. When wearing a mask, please ensure that your mask covers both your nose and your mouth.

Ethel Merman, as part of her illustrious acting career, portrayed Annie Oakley in multiple Broadway runs of Annie Get Your Gun, and Sarah Jessica Parker, while still a teenager, took a turn as the title orphan in Annie. One thing I’d like to note: The clue clearly says that the shows (not the respective turn in the roles) lasted more than two years. I imagine that some home viewers might be tripped up by today’s clue wording, but this one might be on the viewer at home as opposed to the show; I don’t see any better wording for this clue.
