I would most like to play Annie Oakley in Annie Get Your Gun in a real Wild West Show version of the show in a rodeo arena. That is, I'd like to recreate the Wild West Show as the main event with horses and the best Wild West Acts we could find. Then I could put my two greatest loves together in the perfect work experience, that is tour with my horses in a show!

Or, let's see, I'd like to play all the parts in West Side Story with Jason Robert Brown playing all of the orchestrations on piano. : )

Or, bring Gillian Lynne's beautifully directed version of Dear World to Broadway. Or I'd like to direct Into the Woods or play Sweeney in Sweeney Todd.
