  • Ladies and Gentleman....Taye Diggs is your next Hedwig  Aug 3 2015, 09:24:37 PM

    Having seen Ally Sheedys run (not by choice) I am 100 per cent sure that Rapp was better, assuming he at least was trying to do the show we call Hedwig.

    Don't ask!

  • Hollywood stars... Do we even care?  Aug 3 2015, 10:55:36 AM

    If they're perfect for the part, I don't mind, but it's all because money is the bottom line.

    For everything.

    I don't agree that the actors don't care what the audience wears as long as they buy a ticket. A ticket is needed to see the production . The mode of dress is a personal choice and reflects your attitude towards those actors and their work .

    It was close. I debated for a while because neither one of them was in the character! Lol

    Glitter girl, the only broadway Hedwig I saw until JCM was NPH. I was so disgusted after his performance that I decided I was done with the show . But I did return for JCM.

    but here are my rankings:

    JCM, M. Cerveris,Matt McGrath, Kevin Cahoon, Asa Somers, Donovan Leitch, NPH, Ally Sheedy

    I've known Steffi a long time. She's perfect for HMing for Hedwig. No nonsense!

    p.s. she's not that old, lol.

  • Ladies and Gentleman....Taye Diggs is your next Hedwig  Jul 30 2015, 06:59:37 PM

    I'd love to see some rankings by people who saw the Jane St. Hedwigs as well as the broadway ones.

    "He was on fire the night I saw him. Incredible performance. No surprise he won the Tony"

    I sure wasn't surprised. He put on some show. It perfectly showcased his singing and dancing talents. And I'm sure it brought in lots of business. As I always say, those producers are brilliant.

    "The major difference is that JCM was creating a role FOR himself to perform, which means it was built, first and foremost, to showcase his strengths as well as challenge him in areas he wanted (and felt he needed) to be challenged artistically. It wasn't written standalone, and then he thought, "You know, maybe *I* should do this..."

    That's right Haterobics, and it makes  big difference.

    I want to add that I don't think anyone on this board experienced the phenomenon that I and hundred of others did, being part of the cult (and I did say cult) following that was at the Jane for every performance by John (and others but this is about the bond with John as Hedwig). We were all a part of one whole utterly devoted mass to Hedwig and John. Seeing him play the role became something other than a role. JCM was Hedwig for us. It was a deep love. I can't explain it if you

  • Ladies and Gentleman....Taye Diggs is your next Hedwig  Jul 30 2015, 02:52:57 PM

    Interesting Skies, I was just giving a lot of thought to how I would explain my stance on JCM being the one and only Hedwig. So I'll try: I was pretending that I was writing a story based on some actual events from my own life. I would, in my mind, return to the "scenes of the crimes" lol, and experience them once again, and write. That's what JCM did. So I can't imagine that anyone else could return to those scenes and feel them the way John did. 

    And of course JCM's acting a

    "So fine that some think that JCM is the best Hedwig, but I just think that because he wrote the character nobody can give as great if different Hedwig is just silly."

    So sorry that you inferred the only reason I say JCM is the best is because he wrote the story. 

    Beyond silly - just ridiculous.

    "That raises another question, though: what if you don't know where you are going?"

    Well, now we're veering towards another whole topic..

    "But I do have one question about the way you dress and the building you are going to be in. Do you dress differently when you catch a train at Grand Central than you do at Penn Station?"

    Hogan, you're hystserical! Good question, and the answer is thus (even if you are only kidding) - It depends upon my destination!

  • Ladies and Gentleman....Taye Diggs is your next Hedwig  Jul 30 2015, 01:21:01 PM

    It's his story because he created it.

    Part of the reason I don't go to broadway theaters extremely casual is for the physical buildings themselves. I consider most broadway theaters to be beautiful, somewhat luxurious and formal places. That influences my attire. For instance, there are some off and off off broadway houses which are similar to some unfinished basements I've seen. I feel at home in quite casual dress there.

    I know I'm a bit "old fashioned" but I also am influenced by museums such as t

    The topic was brought up and we're posting our opinions. It doesn't mean any more than that.
