elphie green

endless list of broadway faves; lilli cooper.

“I called my stage manager who told me our Elphie wasn’t feeling well but thought she could get through the show. About 20 minutes later I’m rushed into the Elphie dressing room, painted green in about 7 minutes and into my “Galindified” costume. The most surreal moment of the whole transition was seeing Elphie onstage from the wings, and then walking on as Elphie in the next scene. It felt like a tag-team. I definitely heard some confused murmurs from the front row, but I’m guessing anyone past the 10th row didn’t even notice the switch out! Until they made the announcement at the end of intermission, which probably eased a lot of folks minds who thought they were going crazy and seeing two green girls.”
