“Since Yellow Diamond is voiced by Patti Lupone, famous Broadway actress, I think the rest of the Diamond’s should be voiced by Broadway actresses. Like Blue Diamond would be Bernadette Peters, White Diamond could be Julie Andrews and Pink Diamond could be Idina Menzel.”

We treat the desire to be on Broadway as a competition - as if only a select pool are even allowed to say that’s what they wish for. This makes us lose sight of the truth, that we all have that chance within us, and that we aren’t competition to one another, but peers as the next generation of Broadway performers.
