Okay, so, let's talk REALISTICALLY. Who are some characters you would love to play--that you could also be cast in? (So think realistically...Unfortunately, it shrinks the playing field, cuz I'd love to play Elphaba...but let's face it. I'm a boy.) Any roles! Musical or otherwise.

Mine are:

-- Younger Brother in RAGTIME
-- Mark Cohen in RENT
-- Romeo/Mercutio in ROMEO & JULIET
-- Jamie in THE LAST 5 YEARS
-- Monty/Preacher in VIOLET
-- Fiyero in WICKED
-- Hal in PROOF

Eh, those are just a few.

YOUR TURN!! Dream Roles
whatever and ever amen - ben folds five

I'll try not to ramble on and on...

--Don Quixote/Cervantes in MAN OF LA MANCHA
--Sweeney Todd in SWEENEY TODD
--Jimmy in THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE
--Peter in BARE: A POP OPERA
--Rodolfo in LA BOHEME (does opera count?)
--Princeton/Rod in AVENUE Q

That's my simplified list, though I'm stretching it a little with the last two...I can't get a high C for Rodolfo and lord knows I can't operate a puppet for the Avenue Q roles lol.
Joel: Nope. Osidius, right there, swoop and cross.
Clementine: Shut the fuck up!

Yes, that's my eye. I took that of my own eye when I was first learning to use my (now broken) webcam a few months ago. Probably around April or May.
