“It’s incredible to play this role for another 4 months in London. I’m grateful to be part of the 10 year anniversary, and celebrating my own 10 year anniversary as well. But afterwards, it’ll be time to do some other stuff too.”

(video translated from dutch)

Thank you Willemijn Verkaik for 10 years portraying Elphaba!

NOT DEPICTED: Glinda starts singing, but she appears to be no longer in the bubble. Elphaba looks around, and joins in the second line, hoping the harmony will make them find her sooner. Whilst Glinda sings the high notes alone of the third line, The Clock slowly opens to reveal Glinda holding out her hand, reaching for her Elphie. 

Elphaba runs to her, happy to be at last united with their true love. The Ozians finish the last notes, while Elphaba hands over the hat to Glinda, who symbolically puts it back on their head. They are together at last.

Rewriting Wicked: Wickedly Queer (36/36)

an easy guide to musical theater songs

If the title…

1. has an ordinary everyday object in it, it’s not really about that object

    See: Ring of Keys, To Break in a Glove

2. is an infinitive phrase (has a word ending with -ing), it’s the character’s life philosophy song. It will be quoted again later to show Character Growth™.

   See: Dancing Through Life, Waving Through a Window

3. is an imperative phrase (giving a command), someone’s a) at serious risk of dying or b) being seduced

   See: Bring Him Home, Stay Alive, Say No to This, Light My Candle, Touch Me

4. contains (reprise), someone’s dying. Maybe they’re already dead. Bring tissues.

   See: Stay Alive (reprise), I’ll Cover You (reprise)

5. has “sky” in its title, it’s overused as an audition song

   See: Giants in the Sky, Corner of the Sky

I’ve been playing around with these ideas for a few days, decided to draw them!

things people in my theatre class have said (part 2)

“and then emma is going to cross downstage—where’s emma” (everyone simultaneously looks up. emma is on the catwalk) “hey guys you look really short from up here”

(violent twirling of ribbons) “IM A WATERBENDER”

“so im going to write a musical called tree #3 the musical and the whole thing is just the tree standing onstage and singing this note:” (high-pitched screeching) “sounds groundbreaking”

“my favorite musical that we did was probably seussical” “isnt that the one where you face planted on the stage” “shhhh we don’t talk about that”

“wait i get to fake slap aidan” “yeah” “FINALLY”

“can you maybe chill?” “how bout maybe you chill?” “OH MY GOD YOU TOO?”

“there’s literally no music i can play right now. it’s all percussion. what the fuck.”

“one word summary of yourself” “gay”

“wow i can’t believe how good friends elphaba and glinda are” “harold…..” “wait what my name’s michael” “…harold….”

“FUCK YEAH FRUIT ROLLUPS”

“actually, did you know that in 19th century russia—” (from across the stage) “WE WRITE LETTERS WE WRITE LETTERS”

“see we call the small max maxahundred cause hes the youngest. then the medium max is maxathousand. then the big max is maximillian.” “OH MY GOD”

“when you think about it….. everything is illuminati”

Hello I’ve slept on it for 2 nights now and I’m still mad at the fact Pasek and Paul consider they pitched “the weirdest idea for a musical” as if hip-hop founding fathers, electropop opera 70-page extract from War and Peace, wizard of oz fanfiction, nsfw puppets, mormons in uganda, singing cats and u.s. marines play who’s got the ugliest date before going to Vietnam (aka their very own show Dogfight) were never pitched. the disrespect of it all honestly.
