Oh, come on! Everybody has one.

Peter John Chursin--he was awared the title of Mr. Dance of America in 2003. He also played Toto (Todo?) in the Wizard of Oz when he was 7, I believe he told me...

Fiyero2, it is just a joke. I am assuming Parks did not mean to be insulting, he probably is just making fun of the facts that there are already a gazillion Wicked threads like this.

Hey Kimmy, you wanna fight?

Are your threads really doing better than mine?

DAMN.

At least Parks is bringing up an aspect of Wicked that hasn't been discussed 1,000 times on this board.

It's totally a legit thread. re: Who's Your Favorite Chistery?

I liked the Chistery I saw back in September who kept falling while climbing on some of the set. I think he might have hurt himself though, he didn't come back after intermission...

Oooooh Chistery drama.

Parks, oh, you don't want a piece of this re: Who's Your Favorite Chistery?

And Fiyero, it's not a contest to see whose threads get more replies. And if it was meant to be mocking, it may be a little justified, as a quick search would have found multiple threads on these very topics. So chill out. No big.

Heh- I love this question :) but I actually have a semi legit answer: I'd have to look in my Playbill for his name, but I loved the tour Chistery when Wicked was in L.A., and I could totally tell that it wasn't the 'real' one on understudy night, before I even saw the little Understudy Chistery slip in my Playbill.

(Yeah it's possible I saw Wicked too many times when it was in L.A.)

I saw Wicked 2 1/2 times here in Dallas--met Peter after the 2nd performance I saw and he was very nice. My friend and I talked with him for a couple of minutes, not too much.

I recognized him in the ensemble in the Dillamond/school scene when I saw it the 3rd time front row...re: Who's Your Favorite Chistery?

I'm sure all these Wicked threads are annoying the hell out of some people. I love it. I hope the next one is "Who's Your Favorite Midwife?" or "Who's Your Favorite Swing?"

What I find amusing is that I actually saw Phillip Spaeth in the non-union tour of The Music Man during its (heavily) protested stop in Chicago. He was the stand-out dancer in it. I felt bad for the entire cast...Equity managed to doom that production with its protests, and this was definitely a talented cast (the sets, on the other hand, lookd as though they were about to fall apart).

I saw that Music Man tour too! The only Chistery I have seen is Manny Herrera but I will see the tour in April.

P.S. Even if this thread is a joke, I agree with PJ that I love the idea of it and I would like to see the Favorite Swing Thread

Philip Spaeth was so nice when I met him. I had just sat in the front row, partial view seats, so he kept ending up directly in front of me. He's very flexible. re: Who's Your Favorite Chistery?

Wasn't there a cute chorus boys thread at one point? Where did that go? Much better than another Elphaba thread.
