I mean at least there was a really cool squad in the afterlife.

You start off with Regulus all alone. Then James and Lily come on by. Then Sirius joins. Then cool, we have an owl! Alright! A house-elf! Hey, Snape! The party’s just getting started! Remus! Tonks! Pull up a couple of chairs! Fred! Come on over! Hey Har-oh, rude! Fine! Don’t join our party! You don’t know what you’re missing!

  • <p><b>teacher:</b> does anyone know what year the Berlin wall went up?<p/><b>me:</b> on August 13, 1961 a wall was erected down the middle of the city of Berlin. The world was divided my a cold war and the Berlin wall was the most hated symbol of that divide. Reviled, graffitied, spit upon, we thought the wall would stand forever, but now that it's gone, we don't know who we are anymore. Ladies and gentlemen, Hedwig is like that wall; standing before you in the divide between East and West, slavery and freedom, man and woman, top and bottom. And you can try and tear her down, but before you do, you must remember one thing<p/></p>

What’s funny, when the news went out that I was doing the show, instead of people saying, “Hey dude, Hedwig, that’s great!” That was a minority compared to that, “Dude, Rebecca Naomi Jones, she’s the best.” My ego’s pretty small, but I was like: “Guys, what about me?” I saw her in American Idiot years ago, and she’s clearly so insanely beloved by the Broadway community. She’s a total rock star. I feel totally lucky I’m in this with her. The only thing is, and I’ve apologized to her many times, is that in rehearsal she plays the second fiddle, literally. She plays this underappreciated peon that does get his comeuppance. But in rehearsal, however many hours a day, the vast majority of it is making sure that Darren knows what he’s doing, and Rebecca is just sitting there. I’ve turned to her on several occasions saying, “Rebecca, I am so sorry. You are such a goliath talent and I feel bad that you’re sitting there waiting for me to get my shit together.” Thankfully she does have her moment, and it’s amazing.

Darren and Rebecca’s last moment on stage together ♥
