thank you all for the input. i originally posted this question because i am a theatre major who is questioning whether or not i am trans ftm. i talked to my therapist about it, and i mentioned that i usually see myself playing the male roles. my therapist told me to research female characters in theatre.
XWW said: "I wouldn't count Mrs. Meers because, while she is independent and unique, she's completely crazy. Not exactly a feminist role model. Not to mention the racism surrounding her plot line in the musical.
I would definitely countEva Peron in Evita. By the way, are you asking this for any specific reason?Are you tired of the way some plays/musicals are being written, or are you doing some research for some nebulous project, or something completely different t

i am looking for a list of theatre (musicals or plays) that have strong, interesting, unique female characters, preferably WITHOUT a love interest. or, if they DO have a love interest, it isn't the main part of the story.
