I used to act, but now I'm just an avid fan.How did you get into musical theater? I've been seeing shows with my mom since I was a kid, so it was just always there.What is your favorite thing about musical theater? The experience of seeing a show is so much more emotional and moving than watching anything on TV.Best musical theater experience? Acting: Playing Mama in Bye Bye Birdie. There's nothing that's quite as much fun as being the comic relief in a show. Viewing: Seeing Wicked on Broadway with the OBC. It was really, really, REALLY amazing.
Awww...Bye Bye Birdie was really the only big show I was ever in. I played Margie (ie chorus member part with one solo in Telephone Hour and one line), but a really good friend of mine was Mama. I love that part!
I was just in a HS version of it...but it was soooo much fun. Apparently I almost gave some guy in the audience a heart attack because I reminded him of his grandmother so much :)I also had a fairly big crush on the guy that played (oy, what's the main girl's name!! AHH!!!)'s father. That pairing could lead to some interesting Bye Bye Birdie fanfiction ;).
Kim. :)My best friend, who played Randolph (Kim's little brother) actually got married to the girl who played Kim this past summer. We did do the show in 8th grade though, so they have had time to mature but still. Speaking of crazy Bye Bye Birdie fanfic...ewwwww....
LMAO!!! That's awesome :)KIM!!! that was it. I'm surprisingly bad at names today :)
