Here is my 1 st selection

It's A Bird, It's A Plane, It's Superman

Superman - Bob Cuccioli
Lois Lane - Kristin Chenilworth
Max - Nathan Lane
Professor Sedgwick - Gary Beach

By the way, I have an idea about how to end the first act as the original would never happen now due to terrorism

Mack & Mabel#2

"Mack and Mabel"
starring Jane Krakowski as Mabel, and Tom Wopat as Mack!

I saw Bob Cuccioli in "Temporary Help." He was so awesome!

I saw him in Jekyll & Hyde and he was great there too. What's he up to these days?

I'd like to revive Side Show with the following cast...


Daisy: ME :)
Violet: Catherine Brunell
Buddy: Gavin Creel
Terry: Marc Kudisch
Fortune Teller: Emily Skinner (haha... hey, it's MY dream cast, and she should be in the revival somewhere!)



Mwah, I just stuck the cast of Millie in my revival of Side Show, but that's A-okay. :)

OK, not so much a flop.

Darryl - Hunter Foster
Alex - Josephina Gabrielle
Jane - Joanna Riding
Sukie - Sutton Foster
Felicia - Rosie Ashe
Michael - Me!
Jennifer - Caroline Sheen

So basically, the original and 2nd casts mixed together with some Broadway stars. But Hunter seducing his sister? Ewww.

I would like to revive Carrie with Varla Jean Merman as the mother. I'm not sure who should play Carrie though.

Jane Eyre, with Bob Cuccicoli as Rohester and Sutton Foster as Jane. Blanch should be Alice, and I really dont care about anything else, just those three would make a great show.

I'm sorry, but there will never be another Marla Schaffel and James Barbour. Sorry, I'm being ridiculous, I didn't even see the musical, but I adore the CD. I am so glad someone suggested this show. Why did it flop? Gorgeous music, great singers.

Oh wait, I don't think that one ever was produced...darn!

Posted: 5/27/03 at 8:35pm
This was the the first musical I ever saw on Broadway, way back when. I just did some research, it was the 5th longest running musical of the 70's, that's not saying much, but hey, 1,920 performances ain't bad no matter when.

Sorry, no on the David Campbell-as-Alex suggestion. I, I sleep with everyone... Having seen David live more than a few times and once with facial hair, I'd hate to see him subjected to that. Especially the facial hair...

Paint Your Wagon#20
Posted: 5/28/03 at 1:22pm
While Paint Your Wagon was a Mega-Hit on the Big Screen in 1969, it only had a rather limited life on Broadway in 1951. While it might not qualify as a FLOP! It definitely didn't have staying power on Broadway.

I'd like to see someone revive this tale of the California Gold Rush of 1853. Great music including "Paint Your Wagon" and "They Call the Wind Maria".

See the following link"
