dean and cast

Some of the best things I’ve heard in Heathers rehearsal so far:

  • “Oh no! My shirt, where’d it go?” followed by really slow and awkward finger guns
  • “Free pizza, and we don’t even have to buy it a pussy!”
  • “Those stupid tree thumpers”
  • *dramatically pirouettes and leaps in* “BIG SWORDFIGHT IN HER MOUTHHH”
  • “Aww that seems like a relationship that would last.” “Yeah until one of them blows up” “I guess you could say their love is….. explosive”
  • *Our choreographer screaming like one of those sheep used in parodies back in vintage youtube days whenever she gets frustrated or needs to get people’s attention.*
  • “So you’re going to do a Jesus lift” “A WHAT” “Just put your arms out and they’ll lift you like you’re Jesus resurrecting from the cross”
  • “Welcome to Newsies on steroids.”
  • “Be the closeted gay we all need.”
  • “The first step to any good plan is murder.”
  • “How much bitch is enough bitch though?”
  • “Imagine having to explain to someone like ““oh how’d you break your tailbone?” ““Oh I booty-popped too hard.”” 
  • “When we go off to makeover Veronica, can she still have the monocle, but, hear me out, it’s now bedazzled.”
  • “I have to check the historical accuracy of bedazzling in the ‘80s.”
  • “Okay, but what if we made it gay?”
  • “COSTUME NOTE: SOMEONE MAKE RAM PARTY SLIPPERS!” “What if they’re like bunny slippers, but with tiny party hats?!”
  • “This is Ram, he’s not very nice, but somehow my best friend still wants to fuck him.”
  • “Your whole bio better be about how much you love and respect women or else I can’t help you when your ass is being kicked.”
  • “I paired you guys together because you say he’s your sort of boyfriend later.” *Kurt proceeds to emark in various sexual dance endeavors with multiple other women* “That’s where the sort of comes into play….”
  • “SHUT UP HEATHER” *bursts out crying*
  • Our original Chandler dropped out so our original Duke got promoted to her role and just looks at me and says “Oh my god this is the most Heather Duke thing that has ever happened to me”
  • “That’s a school cheer?!?!”
  • “Real question: WHO HAS A FUCKING LOCK ON THEIR CLOSET?”
  • “What if when she makes you spit up the pills, your wig flies off?” “Oh no you’ve discovered the real reason behind my crisis, I AM NOT A NATURAL BLONDE”
  • “Maybe he should take up knitting or something as a hobby rather than therapedic murder.”
  • “The saddest thing is that’s not even 3rd base”
  • “Veronica, you’re soaking wet!” *cue our assistant stage manager loosing her shit*
  • “My character description is just internal screaming.”
  • “Who needs a dance partner when you have weed?”
  • “I feel bad having to ask but was that supposed to be a dick joke?”
  • “Do I get extra points if one of the pills hits someone in the face?”
  • “I can’t remember the lyrics but I’m pretty sure I’m still gay”
  • “Why didn’t they just throw the bomb and run or something, like why are they so determined to die?” 
  • *recites Blue Reprise as demonic slam poetry because we didn’t have rehearsal tracks yet*  
  • “Veronica, it’s not a phase. I’m just naturally a slightly psychotic bag of angst with great hair.”
  • *music director teaching us Blue* ”They’ll curl up on your face. And purr like-” *slowly looks up from music and proceeds to put his head in his hands* “There’s moments that I evaluate my life and this is definitely one of them.”

And we’re still about 3 weeks from tech week

Will Carol and Daryl ever be together? There are rumors he’s gay…

Jeffrey Dean Morgan: He’s not gay! *laughs*

Norman Reedus: *laughs* Yeah, you know it’s funny when you say something in the press and it’s spun into something else. The gay rumors happened because Kirkman joked about it once, and then that went voooom, and it’s been used as a headline, but…

NR: As far as romance, he already has a relationship with Carol, if that’s what you’re talking about. You know, never say never. I don’t know, to be honest. Yeah, people want death and they want sex.

JDM: Yeah. 
NR: A sexy death. 
JDM: Yeah, sexy death. Death while sex. I mean that’s how I’d wanna go. 
NR: You sick bastard. 

NR: I don’t know. I mean, they definitely have a relationship that is very strong so it’s possible that they will go into that direction, but, then again, they don’t tell me. I’m not really invited in those rooms when they discuss it.

JDM: We all love that relationship, we all love Daryl and Carol, but it’s funny how some scenes you guys do together it’s like brother and sister, some it’s - you reverse roles and one is the parent and one isn’t, and some there’s like a sexual undertone and this attraction, and I think that’s the interesting thing about…

NR: It’s become such a thing that if it happens, people will freak out, and if doesn’t happen people will freak out too. It’s become already such a larger than life situation that I’m afraid to approach the situation, you know what I mean.

JDM: But we all love it. I mean even just as a fan of the show before I was even on it, I loved watching the two of them on the screen, and when they were together in last week’s episode, when they first are reunited… I mean, they work so well together, who doesn’t wanna watch that, and no matter what happens between the two of them, just seeing them together is special.

NR: I get very excited whenever I have a scene with Melissa, and I’m very fortunate just to be on screen with her.

JDM: Yeah, you can tell. I think you both get very excited.
