Post 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...

Mine...

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!

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.)

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)

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.
