Post subject:  Dream Role?

If you were to be any role in ANY Broadway musical, which role and musical would you choose?

I would probably have to go with Christine or Carlotta in Phantom of the Opera, Miss Dorothy Brown in Thoroughly Modern Millie (Even though I'm not a tapper ;) ) or maybe any character in Mamma Mia or Cosette in Les Miserables or any role in R+H's Cinderella. Hm, there's also Guinevere in Camelot, Natalie in Next to Normal, Francesca in Bridges of Madison County, Julie Jordan in Carousel, Miss Mary Sunshine in Chicago, Louise in Gypsy, Luisa in the Fantasticks, Cunegonde in Candide, and Glinda in Wicked. There's even more, but Hey! It's a dream

Hey there! I hope to be Elphaba from Wicked!!!!! She is my IDOL!!!! I know it's a long shot, but you said "dream" role! I would also want to be Eponine from Les Mis, or Elizabeth from If/then. I might want to be Christine from The Phantom of the Opera, but I'm not a soprano. If I can't get any acting/singing parts then I would LOVE to be in the orchestra.

Jemima/Sillabub, Rumpelteazer, Jellylorum, any other (female) cat - CATS

Christine, Meg - The Phantom of the Opera

Reno - Anything Goes

Eliza - My Fair Lady

Mary - The Beautiful Game

Nancy - Oliver!

Jenny - The Likes Of Us

Mary - Mary Poppins

Norma - Sunset Boulevard

Maria - The Sound of Music

Dorothy - The Wizard Of Oz

Christine - Stephen Ward

The Girl/Emma - Tell Me On A Sunday/Song & Dance

Glinda - Wicked

Sheila - A Chorus Line

Eva - Evita

Kate/Lucy -Avenue Q

Narrator - Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

Dinah, any female - Starlight Express

Maria - West Side Story

But all of them are nothing more than dreams...

apart from that - since all of them are unrealistic - here are some male roles, I'd like to play (if I was male):

Thomas - The Likes Of Us

Bertie - By Jeeves

any male cat (especially Gus and Old D) - CATS

Oliver - Oliver!

Moonface - Anything Goes

The Wizard - The Wizard Of Oz/Wicked

Here are just a few :):

Christine - The Phantom of the Opera (or Maury Yeston's Phantom)
Eponine - Les Miserables
Belle - Beauty and the Beast
Mary Poppins - Mary Poppins
Jasmine - Aladdin
The Narrator - Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
Lily - The Secret Garden
Mabel - The Pirates of Penzance
Fiona - Brigadoon
Sharon - Finian's Rainbow
Guinevere or Nimue - Camelot
Eliza Doolittle - My Fair Lady
Marian - The Music Man
Chava - Fiddler on the Roof (I'm playing her now!)
Cinderella - Rogers and Hammerstein's Cinderella
Elsa - Frozen (when it is released as a stage musical)

Ingenue roles really work best for me, since I'm a first soprano.

If I were a man, my top two would probably be the Phantom and Enjolras. :)

Dream role? Where to start? I'd say number 1 would have to be a tie between the Phantom (from...well you know!) and Anatoly (from Chess). I also would love to play Frank N Furter a some point (although that's a long shot given my stocky body type...getting me in a corset and fishnets would be a helluvan undertaking! lol)
