Amanda Marzo: Aida! I want to see her sing "My Strongest Suit" where she wears all these different fabulous Gaga outfits:)
Aida, featuring a pop score by Elton John (music) and Tim Rice (lyrics), starred Sherie Rene Scott as Amneris, the princess who is betrothed to Radames, the captain of the Egyptian army. In the musical, Amneris gets to perform the show-stopping number "My Strongest Suit," which would be perfect for Gaga, who is noted for walking the red carpet in peculiar, yet fashionable outfits at every awards ceremony.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart.
