  • Raunchy - Adult - X-Rated Broadway Songs?  Sep 18 2017, 05:05:10 PM

    This is my favorite 'naughty' song ever because Gilda Radner is a f*cking genius.  The chicken line is Sondheimian in its vulgarity.

    Are you saying I have a wonky eye??

    Against type, I also sing a pretty fantastic Marta.

    Oh cabaret show...Kiss of the SpiderRobbie.

    Yaaaaassss...followed by She's a Woman.

    Though Where You Are is one of my standards!

    I think Molina could use just a titch of edge.  There was about Carver in the original that seemed very right.  It's a different quality than Esparza would bring, but I'd be interested in seeing him paint with some different colors. I would love to play the role.  And you are so kind to suggest it.  But I'd probably not even go in for the audition.  I do think, like the principal cast of EVITA,&nb

    How has no one mentioned Esparza for Molina yet?

    This is a conclusion that I'm coming around to.  Before a Nazi/white supremacist murdered a wom

    newintown said: "I understand; I personally still value the notion of a difference between "hate speech" and "incitement," with the latter clearly being out of bounds. Yet I can understand those who believe that words that don't explicitly call for violence can do so implicitly. I just don't entirely agree with that idea (at this point in time, at least)."

  • The Case of the Mysterious Disapearing Thread, Part Deux  Sep 12 2017, 03:40:23 PM

    I'm happy to wander in the fog.  Because that's right where I am at this point.  I don't like reassessing my absolute belief in free speech, but it's happening.  When history (at least the history of the last century plus) shows us that white supremacy and fascism leads to unspeakable violence, what are we to do?  This hasn't been something I've had to deal with in my lifetime.  It's always been theoretical.  

  • The Case of the Mysterious Disapearing Thread, Part Deux  Sep 12 2017, 03:19:11 PM

    Serious question (and isn't it bizarre that we feel the need to type that...just to make sure people know we're 'not coming for them'??)

    Do you think that there are ideas that simply are repellent?  I find the refusal of one person to acknowledge another person's request to honor their full humanity repellent.  Not because I believe it is repellent, but because it is repellent.  Does that make sense?  For you, c

    I reject the categorization of what's happened in this thread as 'standing in the shining light of righteousness.'  I did that yesterday when I was at jury duty and was asked if I thought it should be legal to carry an 1/8th of an ounce of cocaine.  My answer of 'yes' was in no way going to change the law.  But it also probably kept me from being sat on the jury where I might have actually affected some real change.

    Feel free to think that I'm haranguing all you'd like.  I don't care.  

    But what GeorgeandDot has written in this space (and in other threads as well) is a request that her full humanity to honored.  Not one single person in this thread believes Dave28282 can ever have his mind changed.  I mean...his obsessive posting about race and how we should all just listen to him?  Talk about haranguing.

    But I hope anyone else posting here or simpl

  • The Case of the Mysterious Disapearing Thread, Part Deux  Sep 12 2017, 02:01:01 PM

    I don't know how I'm stunned, but I am.

    There is a person in this thread asking that others don't deny the fullness of her humanity (which, does, in fact, include racial heritage) and others just simply asserting that she's wrong in this request.

    Jesus F-ing Christ, please take a step back and realize how terrible that is!

    Every single time I see someone who didn't grow up in the States (and therefore doesn't have the kind of experience of what it is to deal with race in this particular country) try to say something insightful about race relations in America, I was to throw an egg at a toddler.  I'm looking at you, Andrew Sullivan, and your bulllsh*t about the f*cking Bell Curve.

    THAT'S why I feel like I'm dealing with Rosetta Stone every time I try to read one of this posts!  Thank you!

    PS Is there a multilingual drag queen named Rosetta Stone yet?  

  • Can Victor Garber do funny?  Sep 6 2017, 04:46:48 PM

    I was a teenager when I saw him in TENOR, but that performance has stayed with me over the decades.  He was sharp, hilarious and had threw himself into the physicality of that farce fearlessly.

    Clearly, it was a Wednesday when they took that picture. 

  • Two hander scenes from musicals?  Aug 31 2017, 04:59:40 PM

    The Charity/Oscar elevator scene from SWEET CHARITY is fantastic fun.
    Also from SHE LOVES ME is the the I Don't Know His Name scene between Amalia and Ilona.
    For pure book scenes, there are at least one or two between Diana and Natalie from NEXT TO NORMAL.
    The Fromme/Moore scenes from ASSASSINS are stellar.

    Yeah...what are you looking for?  Two men?  Two women?  Male/Female?  Comedic? Dramatic?

  • Cynthia Erivo needs to check herself  Aug 31 2017, 02:01:43 PM

    Next time I go into an audition and I'm asked how many followers I have, I will say, 'Not enough to f*ck up the run of a show.  Hire me.'

  • Cynthia Erivo needs to check herself  Aug 31 2017, 12:24:29 PM

    'There is nothing sadder than following a celebrity on Instagram and realizing that they need the validation they get from it.' 

    Seriously?  We become performers so that people will pay money to watch us.  That seems of a piece to me.

    I love my Instagram.  It's a creative way to express one's self, and I live for the likes!

    Twitter makes me wish I was illiterate.  I knew I couldn't be
