I think I just vomited in my mouth a little...
She IS, however, Committed.... She should BE committed!!!!!!!
I also agree with the 2008 Revival of Sout Pacific.
Assassins - I'm confused Nov 4

My understanding is this- The show was not VASTLY changed from it's original 1990's Off-Broadway production, thus, the Tony Committee called it a Revival... It also happened the year before with Little Shop of Horrors... Though they never made an official Broadway Bow in their original runs, they were presented in generally the same structure. (Other than production values. Costumes, Set Design, Etc...)

Strong, Strong scenes Oct 25

I don't know much classical theatre. If you are willing to shift to contemporary, the opening scene of Beyond Therapy is a good, strong scene. It's a comedy written by Christopher Durang.

May I suggest a rule? For the more experianced players, character names, lead players and song titles, Theatres played but they all have to be connected to one show... Let me explain... A- Annie Get Your Gun B- Bernadette Peters C- Charlie Davenport D- Doi'n What Comes Naturally E- Ethel Merman F- Frank Butler
etc etc etc...

When I pre-ordered La Cage last year, it was about three or four days after the release date when I received it. (I live on Long Island)
Favorite Finales? Oct 10

Sweeney Todd pops into my mind first. La Cage always has a fun finale. I also love the ending of Gypsy. When done right, it gives me chills.

I have heard that she was the original Wendla in a workshop, but I have never heard or seen any performance.
