Post subject:  Dream Sondheim Role?

What's your dream role in one of Sondheim's works? Doesn't matter if your range isn't correct for the role...


1. Mama Rose in Gypsy. Yes, I know he only wrote the lyrics, not the music, but still an amazing score and an amazingly deep character. I want to play her for one simple reason: Rose's Turn.

2. Dot/Marie in Sunday in the Park with George. Another very strong, deep character. And because I know how it feels to be a second priority in someone's life.

3. The Witch in Into the Woods. Love the music, love the grittiness of her character, and I love the not good/not bad/just right part.

I could physically act/sing every one of these roles, but I haven't gotten the chance yet!

Psuedolus in Forum

John Wilkes Booth in Assassins

the rest aren't as important to me. These are the biguns.

Any of the Assassins (or the Proprietor)

Sweeney Todd

Harry in Company (Bobby probably isn't gonna happen)

The Witch and Narrator/Mysterious Man in Into the Woods

The Boatman in Sunday in the Park with George (I'd like George, but... Patinkin ensured the role would be written for a tenor. Same as Bobby.)

Ben in Follies

Cinderella in ITW

Anne in ALNM (haha she's such a petty, immature little thing ... it would be such fun to play)

Maria in WSS

Johanna in Sweeney

If I were a guy, I would love to play The Baker (ITW) and Carl-Magnus (ALNM)

Peter in Company

Toby in Sweeney Todd

Henrik in A Little Night Music

The Baker in Into the Woods

Cinderella's Prince/Wolf in Into the Woods

John Wilkes Booth in Assassins

Lee Harvey Oswald in Assassins

If I had to choose one though it'd be Toby, followed very very closely by Henrik.

i feel like the witch from into the woods would be fun just because of all the little funny things she does.

Dear Sondheim Fans,

I'd really love to be able to portray Mrs. Lovett!

Thanks in advance for your replies.
