Re: Who are your favorites?


Iwill have to really post this after closing, in order to save my skin, but I will say far and away that Jim J Bullock is by far the best Male Authority Figure and Gretchen Bieber will always be my Velma. I can't say that about most of the roles though.. for most I have a list of 5 or so because so many people bring such different things to the roles..

I will also add that I am incredibly happy that Constantine Rousouli is going to be my last memory of Link in the original Broadway production.
