Well, I'm always up for any role in a good revival of 1776 or ... Forum or Guys and Dolls or The Music Man. Well, maybe not any role in Music Man. I look good in red. I'm surprised Of Thee I Sing isn't revived more — the Gershwin score is sublime and the book by Kaufman and Ryskind could have been written yesterday with how it still applies to all things political in America. And, who wouldn't want to play the President? A Day in Hollywood/A Night in the Ukraine is a good one due for revival — heck, I'd even play the maid — and I suppose it's only a matter of time before we see revivals of Grand Hotel and Titanic. There's also a show that Frank Loesser wrote called Senor Discretion that I did at Arena Stage several years ago, and the score is just one great song after another. I'd love to get to do it on Broadway.
