Post Courtesan Wars
I was curious, who is the favorite courtesan? I'm not sure if this was already asked, but now it is. I didn't include Philia in the poll since she's never usually just lumped in with the other courtesans.

Vibrata has to be my fave, a dear friend did the role when I first did this show, and a few years ago when I produced it, our Vibrata was AMAZING! Plus, I think she has the best music!

Vibrata in our current production is absolutely the funniest part. Lycus starts her dance with a remote control, and Vibrata just Vibrates, going out of control until the Eunuchs stop her.

I voted for The Geminae! God, they are great. This, of course, could be because the girls who played the Geminae in the production I was in were extremly hot, or simply because there is a certain fantasy thing going on there when you have TWO beautiful woman swooning over you. They also have a sort of mysticisim about them that is undeniable, but then again, maybe I am attributing too much to this too little role.

The courtesans are on stage for like 2 minutes, have no lines, and appear briefly in 2 songs. Who cares?

Not true. They are on stage for a good portion of the show. There are just long intervals in between each part. They are in the initial scene in Lycus' house. They are in the My Bride scene to the end of the first act. They are in the funeral scene and part of the big chases at the end. And of course the finale and the opening number. And Gymnasia has one line ("Don't lower your voice to me!") to the eunich.

Tough choice. All the courtesans in the show I did were so great. I have to give the ever-slightest edge to Tintinabula, since she has the longest dance (and because she gave me a high five every night as we entered for our opening number). What about Panacea? She's not even on the list.

There's something wrong with your poll....only three courtesans are on it and the twins aren't one of them! I think it got messed up somehow, so you'll have to look into it. Anyway, I was a twin, so I'm partial, but we had a lot of fun showing off our own twins and giggling like idiots. We love that the director added that, and everyone in the audience laughed with us. :)
