My favorite plays include The Importance of Being Earnest [Oscar Wilde] , Macbeth [Shakespeare], The Glass Menagerie [Tennessee Williams] and The Mikado [W.S Gilbert w/ music by Aurthur Sullivan]

I was in the last one over the summer :)

Wow! (Is impressed)

Who did you play?

9/1/2010 #3

A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams! Although I don't really like the part where Stanley bedded with Blanche. :(

I was Pooh-Bah in Mikado, I haven't been in Menagerie but I played Dr. Chasuble in Earnest [Although I filled in for Algernon one time in rehearsal] and I was the messanger [the one in the first scene, who tells Duncan that Macbeth has won the battle] in Macbeth

Oh, well, if we're talking musicals then I love tons of those...Sweeney Todd and Into the Woods definitely are awesome.

I added Sondheim because his ability to story tell is incredible. "No, no, never lied. Only said she took the poision- never said that she died." Brilliant!

my favorite plays are Broadway musicals (what can I say? music speaks to me). they include RENT, Phantom of the Opera, Cats, Les Miserable, etc. I haven't seen Wicked yet but I intend to

Meh, I don't really want to see Wicked. I do like Les Miserables though, and have recently discovered Avenue Q. Love most musicals in general.

Side note on plays--I got the role of Lavach the Clown in Shakespeare's All's Well that Ends Well, that the Shakespeare Club at my high school is putting on.

I am a girl. And I have to make crude sexual jokes about how anyone can sleep with my wife and I'm cool.

...This will be interesting.
