This made me laugh so hard...

I was reading an interview with John Grisham, and he said he was friends with Hillary Clinton.  When they asked him if he'd tried to get a political position, he said she'd turned him down.  Guess what he'd asked?

That's right.  He wanted to be Ambassador to France.

Sara Jane Moore released from prison yesterday. [Jan. 1st, 2008|11:43 am]

I thought you all might find this interesting.

Here's an article on her release. She served 32 years of her life sentence, and she's probably going to be on supervised parole for the next 5 years at least. But she says she regrets her actions, and that she wasn't thinking clearly because of her radical political views.

This has little to do with her release, but I also thought it was interesting that she worked as an accountant in the prison drapery factory.

Typical awkward introduction. [Nov. 13th, 2007|07:50 pm]

I had no idea there was an Assassins community! This is probably my second favorite musical, though it's sort of sharing the top slot with Sweeney Todd now. I didn't like it at first, but it grew on me, and now I won't shut up about it. I reference it far too much, which gets me a lot of odd looks and is probably why I don't make more friends than I do. xD

I also often wonder if things could've gone differently for any of the assassins, with my wildest time travel scheme being "Stopping the Wright Brothers from inventing the airplane would totally prevent Squeaky attempting to shoot Gerald Ford!" Oh, and I aspire to play Squeaky in a production of Assassins someday. I'm kinda casting my friends in a potential production of Assassins which I intend to direct. It involves a female balladeer. (Naturally she won't become Lee Harvey Oswald at the end. xD)

Anyway, I feel like I ought to say something relevant. Well, I have a few Assassins stories up at fanfiction.net under the penname Tastes of Strawberries, including one that will eventually be multichapter once I finish my novel for Nanowrimo. They're all...mediocre. xD; But hopefully you'll enjoy them nonetheless. I also have an Assassins/Into the Woods crossover up there, too.

Thought I'd share! My favorite picture from the production photos of my college's production of the show, which closed last weekend. I miss it loads already... I'm totally having phantom purse syndrome. :(

...Shit, I shot it! [Feb. 9th, 2007|12:29 am]

New member here, just wanted to say hi. :)

I've been an Assassins fan for a couple years, it's my second favorite show (after Sweeney Todd) so I'm surprised I haven't joined this community yet.

Anyway, my college (Oberlin College) is doing it this spring as the mainstage show and I'm cast as Sara Jane Moore. We just started rehearsals on Monday (much to my dismay, as the last show I was in, "See What I Wanna See," closed the night before and my poor voice needs a rest!) and the actual production goes up in late April. Needless to say, I'm enthralled about being in this show.

What I'm a little less than enthralled about is the fact that my acting professor is guest-starring as Guiteau, and he's fabulous, but... hahaha, oy.

Nice to see this community exists!

Hey! I'm new to this comm, been an Assassins fan since... Novemberish? Something like that. I was introduced to this amazing show through Sweeney Todd, and the incredible Michael Cerveris. So, I've got a few bits of art that I'd like to share, so this isn't just a "hey, I'm new" post.. you know. XD



I'm going to Hell for this.

Good dreams

On, and there are some icons, but I'll post those later as my father is hassling me to get off the computer.

A couple things [Jan. 27th, 2007|03:01 pm]

1. Jeffrey Kuhn (aka Giuseppe Zangara in the original revival cast) has just joined the cast of Monty Python's Spamalot on Broadway. He is playing Sir Bevedere.

2. Can anyone upload the OOBR of Assassins for me? I'm addicted to the revival recording but I want to hear the original cast too. Feel free to pick something from my list in exchange.
