Okay it’s the last performance of RENT tonight and I gotta say, I’ve had a great time. The cast are a bunch of sweet kids. (Kids, like I’m 100. But there are times I felt like “grampa”.) Really fun. JOSEPH starts rehearsals in 4 days and that’s going to be a shock. We go from a cast of 12 to a cast of 30 adults and 49 kids. God in heaven, save me! . . . or Buddha . . . . or Mohammed . . . or whoever can save me. I’m open. That’s a lot of “chi’rens”. Looking forward to a few days off.
In the meantime, I thought I would treat you all to a giggle. For those of you who know the original Lady Gaga/Beyonce video, skip to the second one. For those of you who don’t, like myself and I’m not ashamed, here is the original.
And now the parody. Christine Pedi is a Broadway performer who discovered she could do impersonations and now does a whole flock of ladies. This is her parody of the video but in hers, the duelling divas are Liza Minnelli and Carol Channing – and she plays both ladies. It’s not her funniest bit but it’s still pretty enjoyable.
