IDINA IN AnYtHiNg she has done!!1!!

Seriously... I have two (and I swear I'm becoming a broken record):
Julia Murney in Wicked and Sutton Foster in Little Women. Both women are blindingly brilliant. It's crazy.

Well if I have to pick one, it's obvious:
- Sutton Foster in Little Women (I would say Drowsy, but she really made Little Women worth watching. Having Maureen McGovern by her side only made her stronger).

Now if you'll allow me to name some other favorites:
- Sara Ramirez in Spamalot
- Kristin Chenoweth in Wicked and You're a Good Man Charlie Brown
- Lisa Howard in Spelling Bee (love her voice, and she's so funny)
"Champagne makes me drowsy!"

WORDS TO LIVE BY:


As we stumble along on life's funny journey. As we stumble along into the blue. We look here and we look there, seeking answers anywhere. Never sure of where to turn or what to do.

Still we bumble our way through life's crazy labyrinth. Barely knowing left from right nor right from wrong. And the best that we can do is hope a blue bird, will sing his song as we stumble along.

Donna Murphy in Passion. The most amazing performance I've ever seen next to Meryl Streep in Sophie's Choice.

If you really analyze that performance, you can learn how to act. It's so specific, and completely committed.

Gah, if only I could have seen in on stage.
