    • GAHHHHH A main course of sexy, considerate, cute, hot, humble, witty, wise (& wise-ass) Clay for dinner, and then a helping of Teacher Clay for dessert. Life is good!

    • "What do you like?" Clay asks the little girl Sierra. And she said "I like you" She has good taste.
      2
    • He has always been all that he is now, which is much more than he has often been given credit for, and even less than he is yet to become.

    • I think the world will always need Clay Aiken more than Clay Aiken needs the world. He is a realist; a survivor, and a star no matter how badly someone cuts his hair.

I can so see Clay on that role...great too for soemeone who is self conscious about his dancing. What I can;t imagine is his voice in this role...will he try to have a deep booming voice???

hee I am loving this!!

David Hyde Pierce is hardly a deep booming voice. :cryingwlaughter: But then, Clay isn't playing DHP playing Sir Robin. He's playing Sir Robin, and I have no doubt at all that he will make it Clay Aiken's role. Just watching the ham and the double-takes and the general goofiness of David singing that song though, has me absolutely bursting to see Clay's interpretation. *I* wonder if he'll learn the piano part?!!?!?!!

ETA: If you're talking about projection though - I think that's even less of stretch for him. I remember the first time he dropped the mic for the last line of DSIAFCD last year. We were sitting quite a ways back in the house, and his voice was pure and clear as a bell, with no amplification at all. It still gives me chills when I think of it.

God, this is the most exciting day in the Nation since I can't remember when.

Cool screencap, bottle!

I'm wondering about the piano part, too, cindilu. I think he's probably already started working on it.

I won't be surprised if someone gets at an audio recording of Clays' solo. It's not kosher on Broadway, but I'll be surprised if someone doesn't try it.

ETA: Ooooooh! I just became Clay's PERSONAL MANAGER. Oh, yeah!! I'll manage his person, alright! Heeee! :naughtywag:

I wanna be the seamstress who has to fit the tights to accomodate the BHC. Then in appreciation for my services he will snuggle up behind me and place his big beautiful hands over my...oh well it was just a thought.

:hubbahubba::hubbahubba::hubbahubba:

And I do think he'll say shitty.

Yep, I certainly expect that someone will manage to get audio of the whole show. Video will be harder but I have no doubt that someone will pull it off, too, at least once.

Does the performer who plays Robin usually play the piano part himself? In the video I was watching on YouTube, it seemed to me that the actor was just pretending.

You can find these videos on YouTube by searching "Spamalot 1" and then you should see links for Spamalot 2 - ??? I am at 8 right now.

I've seen a full video of Lea Salonga in Miss Saigon -- but it was taken towards the middle of the run (because there was less attention I guess; not by me, honest!)

ETA: jmh, yes very. Did you need the answers to your building/sculpture q's right away? I'm in chat with Karen Eh?

As a frequent play goer. cameras and cell phones are strictly forbidden. It is just not acceptable.

Whoever gathers clack should just be very, very discrete, and make sure that no audience members are disturbed by the process.

Looks like our Sir Robin is in quite a few scenes!

EEEEEEEEEEEEE! I just bought tickets at the end of March - Row B, in the very center. :yahoo: I bought a ticket for hubby and for me.

Now we'll have to figure out our flight and lodging. And pray that Muski and hubby can come, too!!

Dang it! GIbby just called and purred over the phone, trying to get me to whip it out!

My Amex card, that is.

AaAARRGGHHH! Our daughters' school vacations are the same week in March and when I checked the performance Gibby and her husband have those great center 2nd row tix for, I saw that there are two seats in the center third row available!

AAARRRGGGHHH!

AND it looks like I could use my AMEX Rapid Rewards points to buy the tix!

AAAAARRRRRGGGGGHHHHHH!

OMG...omg...OMG....omg....WHAT TO DO!?!??!?!?!?! :fca:
