Fuck Yeah Stephen Sondheim

Bow before the fucking king of musical theater.

You can put stuff in my ask box, but I'm unlikely to answer on the blog. I will probably just put the answer in your ask box. If you really want to have a conversation, I'm always on Twitter.

How have I only just found out that Whoopi Goldberg replaced Nathan Lane as Pseudolus?
How did this even work?!

Thanks to the internet, you can read the reviews from when it happened. Here’s a snipped from Entertainment Weekly:

A few questions arose:
Would Whoopi play the part — as written — as a man?
Would she play it — slightly rewritten — as a lesbian?
Would the entire show be rewritten for Whoopi?
Can Whoopi sing?
On March 6, Whoopi finally had her opening night, and the answers, respectively, are no, maybe, no, and just fine.
