High G at the end, and an optional falsetto C if you copy John Rubenstein on the CD. But the C is rather cheesy, actually.

The c is also rather written in the score.

I always thought that Corner of the Sky sounded better an octave down. But maybe that's just because I'm a bass.

Someday I am going to write a musical with the greatest bass role ever.

I kind of think The black guy in Civil War or Sweeney are the greatest bass roles (though sweeney has alot of baritone moments)

Nice! I've thought about that. I also thought about making a musical with like NO true tenor parts.

I would love to have a musical with an amazing bass role! I'm a true bass and it's really sad that there aren't any good lead bass roles. :(
