Which Musical Are You?

So, following a bit more "churchy" discussion at church tonight, the topic moved to the less spiritual, "If you could be any role in a musical, who would you be and from which musical?"

My first answer right off the top of my head was Curly, from Oklahoma, as that is one of my favorite musicals. But then, as the discussion continued, I kept thinking, "Yeah! That's who I wanna be!"

I bounced over to Danny from Grease and Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins (I LOVE him in that!) and, finally, Kermit the Frog, from The Muppet Movie...

No, make that Gonzo! (I love I'm Going to Go Back There Some Day.)

For my church friends who might happen here, some of the other answers were:

Roger - Don Quixote
Brady - Maria's friend (whose name I forget) from West Side Story
Susan T - Maria from Sound of Music (or any Julie Andrews roles)
Susan B - Eva Peron from Evita

Tracy and Molly also offered opinions, but I'm forgetting them.

How about it, anyone? Who would you be?

Any role? That's a toss-up between Professor Harold Hill and Joanne (from Company.)

I love Music Man, although I'd like to pick Marcellus Washburn (Buddy Hackett in the old movie)just for the song, Shipoopi... Although I also really like Til There Was You...

Caldwell B. Cladwell (Urinetown) is also a great role. (If you haven't seen or heard of Urinetown, it's hilarious. There is, of course, a wikipedia entry.)

Joe Gideon in "All That Jazz"... "It's showtime, folks!"

Thanks, Bro. Dave, Alan.
