Peacebang is vaguely considering auditioning for the musical "Footloose." But she doesn't know the show, which is a little too Kevin Bacony-rock-and-rolly for her classical Broadway kick-line-oriented tastes.
However, she heard there was a preacher's wife in the show who gets to sing an okay song or two. In her range. Although the role is not funny, and PeaceBang is really a comedienne and if the role isn't, say, Medea or some Shakespearean broad she doesn't truck much with unfunny roles (except for Emma Goldman in "Ragtime" -- wow, what a great part).
The idea of attending 7 weeks of rehearsal with throngs of dancing teens creates a feeling of dread within my breast. Would it be a nightmare of bad music, back stage histrionics and leg warmers? BEEN there, DONE that. Got the award.
Any thoughts? Ever seen the show?
Would it be worth trading away months of total summer freedom (which can turn into months of boredom/meaninglessness/depression) to do?
Probably not, but I might be persuaded.
