If you make the keys low enough anyone can belt, so I mean technically, but no.

Yes let's write Mazzie a role that is suitable for her voice instead of having her play belty roles that don't show her full potential. Especially if the role has been previously played by a belter.

I must say, I'm very surprised when people say that they thought she was wonderful. I've seen the show an unmentionable amount of times and I thought she was the worst Glinda I had ever seen. I also went with a non theatre goer who had never seen the show and they were not moved by her either. Maybe she was sick? She kept touching her chest, if she wasn't then she does not have the notes for the high soprano stuff. Also, what is up with allowing Glindas to be super contemporary? Jenni Barber

Yeah, this wasn't great, wasn't terrible either, but even for fun songs like this should be let go. Her voice is the same up and down much like Kelli O'Hara. That's not a bad thing and she's a rare talent. Just a rare talent who will benefit from staying in her lane.
- Musicals about High School? Apr 29
2015, 12:28:21 PM
I'm surprised that there isn't a thread about this already. I keep searching and I can only find lists of musicals good for high schools to do as opposed to musicals with high school themes.
So far I have:

Jenifer Lewis? You mean Nell Carter? That's who did the workshops is Dreamgirls and who the writers had in mind.

Would JHud or any of the people on Empire be able to do The Wiz since it will be NBC and Empire if Fox? I'm not sure how that works, and I believe JHud is becoming a regular on Empire.
Also, if people from Empire can be apart of this, I wouldn't be surprised if Jussie Smollett was involved as the scarecrow at all. He's up and coming so he wouldn't be super expensive I'm guessing, but he's also getting a lot of attention right now.

I wish this would extend a week or two. I'm surprised it hasn't.

Something about all of this seems off to me. Wicked usually lives to let people go and replace them after they miss several weeks of shows, but they have found not one but two temporary replacements for CB, and she's been out for over a month? I don't want to see anyone let go, I'm just surprised that they're being this patient with her, which makes me wonder why? Maybe they just like her that much? I can't help but think that something is missing from the equation that we don't know.

The revival is like 2 hours and 5, maybe 2 hours and 10.

The Chicago production of Carrie was one of the worst things I may have ever seen, ever. So if Chris Jones was mixed about that one then he would have given the off Broadway revival 5 stars.

Best12Bars I've been in the room with a few actresses who were cast as Margaret (I've worked on the show a few times) it is almost always the actress who makes the horrendous choice. Every actress I've seen play Margaret in rehearsal is so in love with the Mazzie way, and turn their nose up at Piper Laurie's portrayal. Frankly I think the "I'm just a mother " is simply easier to play, and a copout. That's not the story, screw easy and justifications that water down the material; Do the work! No

I didn't know it was John Ruffin. He's literally terrible, and his shows are trash. He does these really low rent church audience based shows with no value, but lots of adlibs, neck rolling, unauthorized revisions to the script. His shows make Tyler perrys touring productions look like tony award wining shows. He is really appealing to a certain audience, and making a crap ton of money off of them and their (ignorance is a harsh word, but you get my drift). It's kind of sad, but he's working his
