    I'm totally putting off revision so... if you could cast any of the Glee actors in ANY musical regardless of whether it's running at the moment, what would you cast them in?

    I'm desperate to see Chris Colfer as The Balladeer from 'Assassins' and Toby from Sweeney Todd (either the OBC or the revival) I think I'd prefer to see him as Toby from the revival because it's set in a mental hospital and it ties in with what he said about wanting to play someone crazy, though I don't know if he can play an instrument!

    And just because I adore this song and would melt into a million puddles if CC sang it!

    I can't even lie. I just want to see Chris Colfer in a Sondheim musical.

    I think Darren would make an insanely good Fiyero from Wicked but I also think he has the emotional complexity to play Bobby from Company and I was just listening to Marry Me A Little and I'd love to hear him sing it.
    Oh and I would die to hear him sing this.... the Company revival used instruments and we all know Darren can play... anything. (Being Alive )

    I really really desperately want Amber Riley in a revival of Dreamgirls, I bet she could give Jennifer Hudson a run for her money!

    Lea Michelle would be amazing in Thoroughly Modern Millie, She Loves Me, Carousel etc.
    I know she's trying for the lead in Funny Girl, that's the sort of role for her.

    I don't care about Matt Morrison. I know he's been on Broadway forever so meh...

    I can't think of shows for anyone else. I don't think people like Cory and Dianna are very Broadway...

    What do you guys think? Any ideas?



    Oh and e hine e, I know you love this song and I'm in love with Neil Patrick Harris and him singing with his husband is just :love:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=afXPs...eature=related

    And just for the lolz... I sincerely hope you've all seen this. Why I simultaneously love and hate Patti LuPone. You NEVER break character but only she can get away with it!


    :rofl:

    Though what I can't STAND about her is she can't seem to actually act a role seriously without being such a diva it takes away from the performance (see: I Read from Passion for an example. ) And I actually hate her voice. Though I adore her Mrs. Lovett.

    Can't believe she's going to be on Glee!

    Darren singing in Italian, haven't watched it all yet but the comments are funny :rofl: also, the camera's zoomed out, can someone confirm his beard is gone here?

    OMFG! My mum just told me (I'm paraphrasing) to 'put my tongue back in my mouth'. Nice. I didn't think I could find him any hotter and now I'm actually heartbroken that I don't know anyone like him. His voice was incredible but why is he singing in the sexiest language ever??? Is he trying to kill me? He must be trying to kill me! He's seriously a LIFE RUINER!!! :sad: :love:

    This is the moment I fell in love...

    I absolutely love Take Me or Leave Me by NPH, I was watching it last night. Wish there was more video of it. I love NPH in general.

    I'd love Chris Colfer to be in Les Mis simply because I really want him to sing 'Empty Chairs at Empty Tables' :love: Not sure he'd suit the role for the general audience though...but he's Chris Colfer so I'm sure he could pull something out of the bag. Amber Riley would be amazing in Dream Girls, I also see her in hairspray. I know Jenna has been on Broadway, I think she'd be good in west side story...not sure if she's done that. I'll be thinking about the rest...

    I'd actually love Lea to play Maureen in Rent, I think she could pull that off...

    After watching a Rent behind the scenes video I've decided Telly would have made a nice Blaine for Kurt.

    That is all.

    Maybe they could have a Wurt relationship in season 3 before Kurt has to decide between them?
    Wes would be a good Blaine! I can't imagine anyone other than Darren as Blaine now though! I think he'd be just as good to be honest but I don't know if he could pull off Blaine's inappropriate songs and his crazy faces and all his billions of weird layers... actually he probably could! Stop making me think about it because I think Wes!Blaine and Kurt would be stupidly hot!

    e hine e... they got NICK FRIGGING JONAS to play Marius. You can't get worse than that. Total stunt casting if I've ever seen it. His voice isn't strong enough at all and it was just embarrassing seeing him amongst the amazing West End stars. So yeah, I think Chris Colfer would be fantastic considering that he can actually sing and he can actually act! Though Marius is wasted on every actor, he's so boring and wet and weedy! I want Chris as Enjolras! Just because I can't stand Marius and don't understand why ANYONE loves him haha!

    You know what I think would be fanastic? I read a fic where Rachel and Kurt were competing by singing all 3 parts in 'Not Getting Married Today'. It's such an impossibly hard song I'm desperate to see it. Chris would rock it because he could do the soprano bit if they lowered it a bit, he could do Paul and would be an amazing Amy!
    I'm posting this because Sondheim is epic and I can't describe how much I want to murder Paul and the soprano. I love the Amy in this.
    and this is how it SHOULD be done! God, I'm such a horrible snob!


    Of course, Ryan Murphy would never do it because musical theatre doesn't sell well as it is and Sondheim is an aquired taste but Company is one of his more accessible musicals and the music isn't *as* difficult as Sweeney or ALNM and **** it would be amazing!

    And when the hell are they going to get Bernadette Peters on Glee? I don't want Anne Hathaway, I want Bernie!

    Why aren't I the musical director for Glee?

    Love this version :love:

    I love it too! To be honest, I just love the song regardless of who's singing it. But I accidentally watched a high school version and it was SO **** I couldn't believe it. So as long as high schoolers aren't caterwauling and calling it singing, it's fine!
    I've walked out of so many performances at school because they've hurt my ears. I think I have perfect pitch because I can hear tiny bits of off-key...ness other people can't discern but I have no real proof for that theory haha! I think this is the most Rachel Berry esque thing I've ever said in my life. :blush:

    Ugh I forgot about Nick Jonas. Chris would be amazing :party:

    You and your Sondheim :rofl:

    I definitely don't have perfect pitch in terms of hearing, I was just recording take me or leave me (I found the karaoke backing track so I expect to hear from my neighbours any day soon about when I'm being thrown out) and I think I'm a bit high. That's mainly because, for years, I sang really quietly because I hated people hearing so now when I increase the volume and sing out my notes are off where they would have been in tune.

    Sondheim! My favourite elderly gay Jew!

    Hahaha! I sing pretty quietly too! The only time I don't is when I'm in the shower!
    I'll never forget the embarrassment of when I was doing the washing up and (badly) half singing and half laughing along to The Phantom of The Opera pretending to be the Phantom AND Christine and my next door neighbour suddenly started singing 'The phaaaaaaaaaantom of the opeeeraaaa is theeeeere!' and I shouted 'SORRY!' through the wall hoping they could hear me!

    Me too! My friend and I crusade against any homophobic people we know instead, especially as often they're being homophobic due to what they see in Glee. For example, one of our friends didn't like When I Get You Alone once they realised he was singing it to a guy.
    I do the same, but luckily I don't cross paths too often with homophobic people.

    Is your friend insane? :lolwut: I didn't like that he wasn't singing it for Kurt, but if it had been for a girl I would have been devastated!

    Night! I think I'm the only one left.

    Oh and @Ambs that film you recommended, just watching it and my headphones popped out just after the scene where they're pretending to have sex. I'm so glad they waited because I can just imagine my mum waking up to sex noises coming from my laptop at 3.30 am. Really, really not good.
    :rofl: That would probably have raised a few eyebrows! Did you like the film?

    I get that! I went to Gay Pride last year with my friends and I felt so left out because I was the only person who wasn't gay! I'm sure there must have been some straight people there but everyone seemed paired off! It was hilarious though because they played 'Don't Stop Believing' and EVERYONE started singing! Glee unites everyone! I spent the whole day perving (as always- what do you TAKE me for?) and lamenting that the really hot guys had really hot guys by their sides! Got some amazing facebook photos out of it though!

    I think my Darren Criss love/obsession has got out of hand. I went up to my sister saying 'I know you don't really care but...' and she interrupted me and said 'Darren Criss!!!' in a really high pitched gushy voice and I was like :curious: and preceded to gush about him being amazing at Italian and told her to listen to him singing and she wouldn't. :blush: I need a life! Like seriously...

    I'm going to have to stop coming on here so much... this week is revision week!

    Which things do you cringe at? We'd all be lying if none of us had a cringe moment! I cringe everytime Will opens his mouth. And no, we don't neg on here. Unless I'm on my iphone and accidentally press neg instead of quote... :blush:
    I don't really like Sue that much anymore... she's turned into even more of a caricature than she originally was.
    just some of the songs and cheesy american happy things i guess
    i mainly just love it when sue goes on a rampage n attacks people in the corridor

    Haha, glad I'm not the only one! Quite a few of my friends are gay or bisexual as well, and they always seem to have a lot more fun than me. Lol to everyone loving 'Don't Stop Believing'

    Yes, WHY is it that so many hot guys are gay?? It's frustrating! My first-ever boyfriend turned out to be gay as well, it broke my heart. I should have known though, he was a professional dancer who mainly did musicals :rolleyes: I don't think I even have a gaydar, and if I do it's rubbish.

    Meh, that sucks. My family is exactly the same. My sister told me today that the fact that I only listen to Glee music is pathetic, so I just put on some DCriss to prove that I'm not obsessed at all... Oh wait :awesome:

    But... We need you here! :hugs: No, I know how important revision is, so I'll tell you to leave and go study every now and then I should be revising for my SAT too, but I got such an amazing score on my practice test that I can't find the motivation :dontknow: /bragging.

    I've never been to a gay pride but I would if I had gay friends... actually my ex is gay but he doesn't live close anymore. At least I can join in slutwalks, i'm looking forward to them announcing one in Birmingham so I can go

    Have you seen season 2? I agree that Sue is simply hilarious, and for the first few episodes of season 1 she was the main source of entertainment for me.

    Puck is sexy, even though I always thought hair was the most important thing about a guy's looks and I actually hate the mohawk. It just love his bad-ass attitude
