An Actor’s Wish List

I don’t know that this is really a bucket list, per se, because some of them are total fantasy but these are the roles I’d love to play. These are not in any order and they are not all musicals/operas – I want to play them ALL! 
  1. Fantine, Les Miserables
  2. Tosca, Tosca
  3. Liu, Turandot
  4. Elphaba, Wicked
  5. Lucy, Jekyll & Hyde
  6. Lucia, Lucia di Lammermore (hahaha – the music would kick my butt but what a fun part to play)
  7. Donna Elvira, Don Giovanni (I was 19 when I played her before; how much heartache had I really experienced? NONE)
  8. The Countess, Marriage of Figaro
  9. Cio-Cio-San (Butterfly),  Madame Butterfly
  10. Lily Craven, Secret Garden
  11. Narrator, Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
  12. Mary Poppins, Mary Poppins
  13. Donna OR Tanya, Mamma Mia!
  14. Mimi, La boheme
  15. Lady Macbeth, Macbeth
  16. M’Lynn, Steel Magnolias
  17. Vivi, Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood (younger Vivi)
  18. Grizabella, Cats
  19. Roxie Hart, Chicago
 Oh, I’m sure there are more but this is a good list.  *giggle*

  1. HAHAHA – because I'm getting older and I can look back and remember when I was a sparkly 20-something. I LOVE how sad she is and how she gets that new life at the end. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Memory. See, when I was younger, I would have LOVED to play Eponine (never was interested in Cosette) and I'm much too "green" for chipper little Galinda. *giggle*
