Quite honestly, I had no idea what I was signing up for here (and I did a cameo in this thing last year so I should have known better)

Surreptitiously replace 'Sit Down' with the song of the same name by James.

"Sit Down" or "Can't Fight This Feeling" i think

How many ppl have heard "Quartet"? It's ridiculously baller IMO (esp. the album version; we're doing the stage version which is longer and doesn't have quite as much counterpoint in it):

my faves so far:

Sit Down
Quartet
Heart
The Song that Goes Like This

it's kind of bad that I hate my big solo, right (Last One Picked)

i like some of Phantom but i can't even remember how "Prima Donna" goes off the top of my head

(full disclosure: the song I've played the most is "My Humps")

"Sit Down" vs "Heart"

the first one really only works with Stubby Kaye's wardrobe, I think

oh god I just realized we are going to have Costume Changes etc and it's likely to be a shitshow

I'm definitely in the "Chess is so bad you guys" camp-- small camp-- but Quartet is the best thing from that musical

Voted "My Humps" because most of all I want to see DJP sing "My Humps"

That hasn't been arranged yet and I have no idea how it's going to come out; I know they're planning on gender-flipping it but that's as far as it's gotten.

random thing I have discovered while idly googling for info about these songs/productions; Gary Burghoff was the original off-Broadway Charlie Brown

voted Wilkommen and just want you to know that I still love most of Phantom of the Opera but will happily skip Prima Donna (what an odd choice)

Sara R-C, Tuesday, 17 September 2013 06:18 (five years ago) Permalink

listening to these songs, I'm coming to the conclusion that "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" and "The Full Monty" are even more unbearable as musicals than I could have possibly imagined

oh did I mention we're doing a "strip tease" to the Full Monty song?

also this is fundraiser for my CHURCH CHOIR

I should clearly go to church more often

Also I haven't seen that movie - is that Alex Baldwin?!

I will come all the way to Boston if you get to make out with Alec Baldwin, deX

I really hate it, partially because the only reason I wasn't a jock in high school was because I chose not to be and I was usually one of the first kids picked for sports that involved running #kickballGOD

I will happily come and sing that because I %^&*ing hated gym class and would not pee on Mr. T@ff3 (evil grade school gym teacher at Pinecrest) if he were on fire to this day

what the fuck i swear i voted for lime jello marshmallow cottage cheese surprise

I am amazed that "Sit Down" only got one vote

You are kind, I am jerkface (DJP), Monday, 23 September 2013 19:41 (five years ago) Permalink

simply jobbed by lack of weighted voting.

thread reminds me of James Woods telling a story to Letterman of having to sing "Both Sides Now" at an audition in his early career, and the next guy said as he left "You are one brave woman."
