I think Chess has a lot of potential. It's loved all over the world. It has an awesome score, but it has been hard to stage and pull off. Hey, does that ring a bell? Freddie, The American would be the obvious choice, but it's nice to play against the obvious. Maybe I could be The Russian, Anatoly!
Truth be told, when I fantasize about what I'd love to do next, I always picture originating a role in a new piece. Ah, the possibilities: A Durang play? The long promised Betty Boop musical? A George C. Wolfe-directed one-woman show (call me George...I have an idea). But to actually answer this question, when the time for a Broadway revival of The Drowsy Chaperone comes around, I call dibs on the titular role, please!
Well, they can always bring back Fiddler – I got to play Tevye for the first time in a production at Syracuse Stage, and it is a role I would jump back into in a heartbeat! Another show would be Little Shop of Horrors — I was the last Seymour in the original production at the Orpheum, but this time I'd love to come back and play Mr. Mushnik – now, that would be fun!
No question — Agnes Gooch in Mame. I played the role a few years ago at Goodspeed, and it was absolutely my most favorite role I've ever done. I also wouldn't say no to Miss Adelaide in Guys and Dolls and Winnifred in Once Upon a Mattress.
