    Your Dream Cast

    I was bored and thought of another activity that we can participate in while we're in off-season limbo.

    You take you a musical (Broadway, movie, or otherwise)...don't worry, the musicals don't have to actually be able to perform on the ice, and you assign a skater to a part think they would be perfect for.

    I'll start:

    Gypsy

    Rose....(this was a hard one because she is the star of the show) Elizabeth Manley
    Louise/Gypsy "Rose" Lee....Michelle Kwan
    "Dainty" June...Sasha Cohen
    Herbie...Kurt Browning
    Baby Louise...Mao Asada
    Baby June...Kimmie Meissner
    Uncle Jocko...Dan Hollander
    Pop....Toller Cranston
    Mr. Goldstone...Dick Button
    Tulsa...Stephane Lambiel
    Tessie Tura...Kristi Yamaguchi
    Mazeppa...Katarina Witt
    Electra...Nicole Bobek

    Nice cast! I can totally see that, but I think Josee is too old to play Leisl, but I would pick her for Maria over Shae Lynn. And I can't see Frank Carroll as Max.

    Peter Pan - Oksana Baiul
    Wendy - Tara Lipinski
    Her Two Brothers - Johnny Weir & Evan Lysacek
    The Three Murmaids - Sarah, Michelle & Irina
    Captain Hook - Alexei Urmanov
    Smee - Scott Hamilton
    Tinkerbell - Rudy Galindo
    The Crocodile - Tonya Harding


    Yeah, I know, this is the Disney version and not the T.V. version, but I can't remember any of the extra characters in that. :\ Somebody ought to take a crack at Westside Story. Timothy Goebel in the Russ Tamblyn role would be a given, but you'd probably have to use either Asians or Russians for all the Puerto Rican parts.

    Moulin Rouge (Not exactly Broadway, but it works )

    I tried to think of a pair that already had a lot of off ice chemistry for the roles of Satine and Christian, and so I figured Babilonia (sp) and Garder, with the understudies being either Punsalan and Swallow or Grishuk and Platov (granted those two are still speaking to each other.)
    Toulouse - Lautrec........................................... .Scott Hamilton
    Other 3 (in no particular order)...................Rudy Galindo, Paul Wylie, Brian Boitano
    Harold Zigelger.......................................... ......Kurt Browning
    The Duke.............................................. ..........Alexei Yagudin
    Lead Can-Can Dancers.......................................Jenn y Kirk, Michelle Kwan

    Laura

    Nah. Both Christian and Satine have to be able to both handle humor and upbeat numbers, like in Spectacular, Spectacular, and S/Z can't do either.

    I know this is not a Broadway play, but the Harry Potter
    movies are my favorite.
    If any of the skaters could play characters in the
    Harry Potter movies, this would be my cast:

    Harry Potter - Alexei Yagudin
    Hermione Granger - Michelle Kwan or Jenny Kirk
    Ron Weasley - Alexander Abt
    The Weasley Twins - Jordan Brauninger & Ben Agosto
    Dumbledore - Dick Button
    Professor McGonagal - Peggy Fleming
    Professor Snape - Ilia Averbukh or Sergei Sakhnovsky
    Professor Lockhart - Peter Tchernyshev (sp ?)
    Pansy Parkinson - Sasha Cohen
    Voldemort - Octavio Cinquanta (ISU Pres.)
