A Series of Bad Timing

Carpe diem

For the callback they made me learn ‘Defying Gravity.’ I was doing really well, then I totally cracked on the high, high note at the end. I screamed ‘F—-!’ at the top of my lungs. Then, without the piano player, I sang the note again to show that I could actually hit it and I kept going. [Director] Joe Mantello says that’s what got me the role.

casual reminder that during her call-back for Wicked, Idina the Queen Menzel screamed “FUCK” when her voice cracked in the middle of “BRING ME DOWN” and still finished the song beautifully and got the part

Idina Menzel’s vibrato makes me want to be a better person

ladiaval:

To those who’d ground me, take a message back from me! Tell them how I am defying gravity. Tell them how that perfect girl is gone, so let the storm rage on!
