Post 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

You have suffered enough and warred with yourself, it's time that you won.

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.

Christine - The Phantom of the Opera (or Maury Yeston's Phantom)
Eponine - Les Miserables
Belle - Beauty and the Beast
Mary Poppins - Mary Poppins

Past: Irene Molloy (Hello, Dolly!), Chava (Fiddler on the Roof), Strawberry Seller (Oliver!), Chorus (Annie)

Dream roles: Christine (The Phantom of the Opera), Eponine (Les Miserables), any Disney leading lady

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)
