Descriptions of Broadway Girls' Voices
  • Renée Elise Goldsberry: When you chew mint gum and then drink water right afterwards so that your whole mouth is cold but it's the most exhilarating feeling you have ever experienced in your life and you get goosebumps just from that one sip of water and that minty freshness
  • Phillipa Soo: A cinnamon bun that is so sweet, so pure, so perfect, that you almost don't want to eat it but you do, and after you finish it you feel so content you just want to curl into a ball and fall asleep
  • Jasmine Jones: The feeling when you're listening to a fantastic song and the sound travels from one earbud to the other
  • Kathryn Gallagher: When your head's in someone's lap and they are playing with your hair and you're outside and you look up at the night sky and see all of the stars and life is good
  • Jennifer Hudson: That one swan song in every Broadway show that has the audience on its feet roaring with applause and crying and throwing roses on the stage when it finishes
  • Krysta Rodriguez: That moment before a concert is about to start and all the lights go off and everyone starts screaming and your stomach drops and you feel like you're going to explode from the excitement
  • Laura Osnes: A dress that is so beautiful and it's the perfect length and the perfect color and you honestly feel like royalty just by LOOKING at it
  • Kelli O'Hara: When you were little and you would get sick and your mom would bring you chicken noodle soup and tuck you in and sing you to sleep while stroking your forehead.
  • Sierra Boggess: That one perfume that smells SO GOOD and you have to stop yourself from spraying it all over yourself
  • Kristin Chenoweth: Cartwheeling through a meadow of flowers while simultaneously rifting and singing the highest notes you possibly can
  • Idina Menzel: That one part in The Odd Life of Timothy Green where he is absorbing the light because of photosynthesis and he just closes his eyes and spreads his arms and basks in the glory
  • Barrett Wilbert Weed: When you're at a party and your jam comes on and you and your friends kill it with your dance routine
  • Elle McLemore: A carnival at night with all of the bright lights on and you're sitting at the top of the Ferris Wheel eating cotton candy
  • Alice Lee: Driving really fast and the wind is whipping your hair back and your radio's blasting music and you feel like you're flying.
  • Jessica Keenan Wynn: When you make a sassy comeback and get complimented for it and you feel like a boss because you slayed everyone (yet again)

But you cannot stop the rhythm
Of two hearts in love to stay
‘Cause you can’t stop the beat!

thoughts on Hairspray Live!

1. ummmmm… Maddie is adorable, however, a bit underwhelming for me. every other tracy i’ve seen has had so much more energy than her..

2. I missed Mama I’m a Big Girl Now in the movie. I missed New girl in Town in the musical. 

3. AMERICA HAS BEEN SLEEPING ON DOVE CAMERON. She is the true MVP of this production

4. wow! what an honor to see Harvey Feirstein play Edna once again.

5. why is Ariana playing Penny like Kat??? it’s so annoying… penny is not dumb, she’s sheltered. big difference. also.. she walked on her tip toes the whole time. lol. at least she sounded fantastic.

6. Jennifer, Kristin, and Derek were absolute pros as usual. i never had any doubt in them. 

7. the second half was 5x better than the first act, and y’all know it’s because of Ephraim and Jennifer. 

8. the rest of the cast was wonderful. garrett, ephraim, the little girl who played Inez (i forgot!), and martin short. good job guys!

9. the choreography was a bit underwhelming most of the time. but i like that they stuck with the og choreography for You Can’t Stop the Beat. 

People, y'all need to stop sleeping on Fantasia, Chrisette Michele, Jennifer Hudson, Jazmine Sullivan, and Melanie Fiona. They got some bomb ass music and I never hear people talking about it. Y'all barely even got their music on Tumblr. K. Michele & Tamar Braxton got some good music too. Y'all can’t complain about no black R&B singers thriving when y'all don’t check for them. Holla at me if you have any other suggestions..
