Broadway or Bust

Sunday saw the end of Smash.  And that made me sad.  (So sad that I had to watch a few episodes of Broadway or Bust)  Why?  Because I love musicals.  Seriously!  I got a thrill when seeing this:

Yes, it's the Tony awards.  I'm already planning snacks and beverages.

Then I thought about it.  We have a perfectly good community theater here.  I should audition.  Actually, I saw the audition notice for the summer production of Les Miserables the day before the audition.  If I had sheet music, I so would have.

So now I have a mission.  I need audition music.  What would be a good song, or few songs, for a mezzo soprano?

Well, his morning I saw this:

A pouty puppy.  She didn't want me to go back to work.

I didn't want to go back to work either.

Are we talking Belter Mezzo, Lyric Mezzo, or Comic/Character Mezzo?

I'm totally not a belter. More character.... a little lyric

I need to go back into the studio and pull out my Mezzo books - I can get back to you with a list tomorrow?
