Broadway Character Costumes Jun 10

So I'm having a Tony party and we're having a costume contest. Dress like any Broadway show character. I'm stumped as to what I could be. I need something super creative. Examples from last year were the rainbow for Finnian's Rainbow and the blank paper from [title show]. Anyone have any suggestions?
Las Vegas Shows Apr 20

So my brother's getting married in Las Vegas the last weekend in May. I've never been to Vegas before. I've been researching shows playing there, but is there anything worth seeing? Also, does anyone have any tips about getting cheap tickets to these shows?
While the concept is very promising, the show falls a little flat. The cast is great (Janet Decal makes for a good leading lady), the set/tech was fantastic, the choreography was good, the score is ok, but the book was an absolute mess. (Spoiler?) The worst offender of the book was the god awful chess battle in the end. The fact that Alice and the Mad Hatter were fighting with what looked like pool clea

Rear Mezz is fanatastic. I sat a couple rows from the top and I got plenty of audience interaction.

I had tickets to see the first preview of Guys and Dolls. That got canceled and I decided to see this little gem of a show. I can't tell you how grateful I am to have seen it! Beautiful music, great book, stellar cast...I had tears in my eyes by the end. I'll never forget it!
(And it was a major plus that I didn't have to sit through the awful revival that was G&D)
I'm seeing the show this Saturday evening. I don't have high expectations, but hey, it's a great opportunity to see a world premiere show in Florida. So happy to see such a fabulous venue like TBPAC (or rather, the Straz Center) hosting an "out-of-town try-out" (whether or not the show actually makes it to Broadway).
I heard the cast of Wonderland is catching the show tonight - too cool!

"Plus, a lot of times when shows bring on guest characters for a chunk of episodes like that, if the character becomes a fan favorite and the actor can do it schedule-wise, they'll end up bringing them on permanently"
That's exactly what happened with Jane Lynch on Glee. Her role was supposed to be a small re-occurring role, but she was so fantastic they made her a series regular.

Andy Karl is in a LongHorn Steakhouse commercial. It's literally a split second shot of him laughing at a table with a voice over playing over it.

Rentboy86 - Her character is pretty vague in the play. I don't remember them leaving out anything significant from her character. You almost have to draw your own conclusions about her. They actually added her whole writer occupation for the musical.
When a customer asks for seats, we gather up a couple different sets of seats that are the best available. We put them in our "cart" so another worker cannot snag them from us. Once the customer makes a selection, we release the others to become available again.
That's how sometimes the 4th customer gets 2nd row seats, while the 2nd customer 6th row. It's all about the timing
