IIFFFFF I transposed Waving Through A Window from DEH to a female key, how high should I go?
In the current key (male octave not going up an octave lol no) the lowest note is A that is 2 below Middle C (A2) and the highest note is the Bb above Middle C (Bb4).
I was thinking of bringing it up so that the low note is D below middle C and the high note would be the Eb above middle C. I don’t wanna bring it up REALLY far that it doesn’t even sound the same but that A2 is just impossible for women (I’m considered CRAZY ALTO when I can sing a C3). But pulling it up an octave is just NOT GONNA HAPPEN with those high notes. Not because I (and a TON of women) can’t sing a Bb5… its just like… why? fuck that.
I feel like that works well but idk. I have to put all the notes into my program before I can even start transposing it anyways so we have TIME
We have wanted to write a musical theater style tribute to Critical Role for quite some time. ‘willing’ is based on the 44th episode, ‘The Sunken Tomb’, which was, without a doubt, one of the most powerful and plot-rocking moments in the whole show.
stories with queer/trans/PoC protagonists just don't perform as well because they're not relatable to everyone!
RENT is one of the most successful Broadway musicals ever and ran for 12 years after its debut in 1996, making it the 10th longest-running Broadway show of all time. Its core cast is made up of a Jew, a gay Black man and his transgender partner, a recovering drug addict, a Hispanic teenage sex worker, a lesbian, and a bisexual woman, all of whom are complaining and commiserating about how hard it is to be an oppressed person with no money but plenty of passion.
also capitalism is terrible and measuring success by monetary value is destructive and demeaning
