HUGE thanks to @jjosh-lyman / johnsfkennedys (twitter) for sending me her audio recording from the post-screening q&a. ** Please note: the first few minutes are missing and I transcribed this to the best of my abilities **
1. What’s it like working with Ginny?
Josh: It’s been… It’s been.. What has it been?
Ginny: Magical? (Audience laughs)
Josh: (laughs) It’s been magical. No, it has, it’s been–
Ginny: The best thing that’s ever happened to you! (Audience laughs)
Josh: It’s been, it has been a magical situation. You’re working with another actor who knows you so well. You can be very vulnerable, you can be very open, you can be very brave, you can do all those kinds of things. So yeah, it’s a real gift.
Moderator: I’m feeling the feels, y’all, are you?
2. What is your favorite Disney character or movie?
Adam: This will sound phony, but it is Snow White. (Audience goes aw)
Ginny: Right answer again!
Adam: It’s true!
Josh: I’m really glad we came to you.
Adam: It was the first movie that I remember seeing as a child and it clearly made an impression.
Ginny: I really like Zootopia because of um– (Audience laughs - can’t hear the rest of her answer) An equally savvy answer would be that we’re very partial to Winnie the Pooh. Pooh was my very first boyfriend and Josh, here, read the entire first Winnie the Pooh book to my belly when I was pregnant with my eldest and that was the first movie that Oliver saw. Then we accidentally bought Sterling Holloway’s house and he was Winnie the Pooh (note: he was the voice actor), so that’s kind of a crazy story. So yeah, Pooh’s got a whole thing. There’s a whole three-line of Pooh in our lives.
Josh: Or we stalk him. (Audience laughs)
Moderator: How about you, David?
David: I am fond of Maleficent and the whole Sleeping Beauty thing.
Eddy: I’m gonna go with Alice in Wonderland and just because I like it. (Audience laughs)
3. Back to the musical, even though the songs are new and original, do you take inspiration from the Disney characters the actors portray?
Adam: It’s more like we’ve taken inspiration from the way our actors have realized these characters on the show. You know, we use the disney movies and animated films as a jumping off point, but every one of them has made it their own. So when we started this process, they sat down with Alan and Michael and we really all tried to work together to tailor everything specifically to who these characters are on our show and those guys did an amazing job with the songs and these guys did alright singing them. (Audience laughs)
Eddy: The idea was each episode has the tone of the character so a Snow/Charming episode is different than a Rumple. I think Alan and Michael really captured kind of the character, they were fans of the show, and then the tone & inspiration for each one.
David: Also it was about returning to a S1 feel for all of these characters, which speaks to how we were introduced to them and what the actors brought to those characters, kinda going to really the heart of when we met them and putting it into song.
Moderator: Awesome. So deep. (Audience laughs)
4. For Josh & Ginny, if you could be any other character besides the one you play currently on OUAT, who would it be?
Josh: I’ve always said Rumplestiltskin for sure. Just because Bobby, the actor, gets to play such a huge range. I just think that would be a whole lot of fun.
Ginny: I would be Henry because I wouldn’t have to wear a wig and that would be the closest I would ever get to playing Harry Potter. (Audience laughs)
5. What’s your Disney favorite ride or attraction?
Ginny: Haunted Mansion.
Eddy: Pirates! Haunted Mansion too, it’s close.
Josh: I also like Indiana Jones.
Adam: It’s a tie between Pirates and Star Tours. There’s like 94 possibilities.
(Someone said Space Mountain - can’t tell who. Maybe David.)
Eddy: The Buena Vista Commissary. There’s a salad bar like right down Dopey Ave. (Audience laughs)
6. Which characters were the most exciting to create a song for?
Josh: (clears throat loudly) Answer honestly!
Alan & Michael (note: I can’t tell which is which): I mean, Zelena was… Yeah.
Josh: Alright, nice to see you (note: I assume he gets up halfway as a joke)
A&M: We had to test you there.
Eddy: It’s hard to say who.. It’s like your favorite child.
Ginny: Us obviously. (Audience laughs)
Eddy: I think, for us, it was really just exciting to do as many as we could. You know, I think we weren’t sure how many songs we could take on, we weren’t sure we could do any of it and, you know, literally these guys wrote 7 original songs and they started meeting in December so… if you have a birthday or anniversary coming up, Alan & Michael~

Why are you obsessed with Brittany Spears? And don't say why not be obsessed with her. Real. ANSWERS.
She is literally such a strong person and this video barely does any justice for her at all but it’s one of the best shortish video. I highly recommend watching her 2008 Documentary though, Britney: For The Record
So I used to work at Mendy’s a while ago, & I just have to say the conditions management seems to think are okay to operate in are ridiculous. Once, a water line broke in the area where we were, & literally almost all of the fast food/restaurants in the area closed because, you know, we have no water at all & when we finally did have water the city was on a boil order & the water was considered unsafe. You would think that would lead the owners of our Mendy’s to close the store but nope. Us & Baco Tell were the only places in the city still open, so you can bet we were completely swamped that day. With no fucking water. We literally had to pour drinks out of two liters, which our managers kept having to run to MalWart to buy. & of course there were tons of customers who were dicks & somehow didn’t have a clue what was going on with the water. I had so many people not understand why they couldn’t use the bathrooms, why our soda fountain wasn’t working, why they couldn’t get whatever fast food they REALLY wanted because everywhere else was closed as if it was our fault, blah blah blah. Oh & don’t even get me started on how we had to wash dishes… we were there for like an extra hour after close just trying to get things cleaned up using only those big water cooler jugs of water. It was awful.
Another time, we got hit with a huge snowstorm. My university cancelled classes for the first time in 10 years, most stores in the area shut down early so employees could get home when the snow plows were running..but of course Mendy’s stayed open until 12 like usual. I live about 15 minutes away from where I worked. That night it took me almost 2 hours to get home safely. Seriously, fuck owners/management that value a dollar over the safety & well-being of their employees.
