One of the best parts of my job is that I get to work with a lot of exceptionally artistic people. I work with musicians, sculptors, clothing designers, painters, singers, and food enthusiasts. While working, we tend to chat about all kinds of things besides the food we put out. My co-worker, Lee, and I are always talking about some stage/tv performance. It always varies from total awe to hysterical fits of laughter over how bad some performances are. Another thing that we do is recast shows. Our latest obsession is recasting Wicked the musical. Funny thing is that Lee is not gay. Although he wishes that he was so that people would just stop asking if he were.
Anyway, we were thinking Christina Aguilera as Elphaba. Could you just die watching her belt out "Defying Gravity"? Lee thought it would be genius to have Britney as Xtina's Glinda but, alas, Britney couldn't and hasn't hit a high note... ever. I said Deborah Gibson. He almost fell off his ladder laughing. So, who do you think should be Xtina's Glinda? Suggestions?
