Musical Debut

Posted in Uncategorized at 10:32 pm by brookel

When I was a little girl (ok, sort of a lie…) I had great aspirations of being a musical star.  Sometimes, I still sort of wish my life was a musical.  But I had never actually been IN a musical until this weekend, when I had an ever-so-minor role in Assault and Flattery’s “The Big Dzienkowski.”

I think it was the most time I have ever spent preparing to sing and say five minutes worth of music and lines in my life – but I met some great people along the way – and got to go to some great cast parties.  Also, when is the next chance I’ll have to sing “Thriller” on stage or pretend to be a judge? Probably not ever, I am guessing…

The show itself was written by 2 students here and was very loosely based on the Big Lebowski (one of my favorite movies) but was reset in, of course, law school and was replete with dorky law school jokes and barbs at professors here (Walter: “This is a courtroom, not a contract with native americans – there are RULES.” good example of the humor).  The songs were a mix of pop favorites and real musical numbers (Hello Powers (for our old dean) instead of Hello Dolly).

All in all it was a great time.
