We had a photo shoot in Portland, Oregon to create photos for press use and for the new tour book which will be sold in the lobby before shows. I dunno when that comes out. I asked a friend in the cast to snap a few pictures while the professional photographer did his thing. They turned out nice, so I aksed the show's PR person if I could share them online. She said yes, so here's a full look at the costumes, set and cast that appear during the song.
Here's the set and cast (minus two singers not pictured) that appear onstage during the song
For "You can do it on your head," I used the pita bread as a hat one day during a rehearsal and they kept it.
The photographer getting a close-up. Aren't the girls hot and hilarious?
Another close-up. I had to scowl at Ted and make sure the robe puddled correctly.
In a rehearsal, I slid to the ground and on "I'm a captive fan" I kicked my legs. It's in the show.
Entering at the very top of the song, staring blankly out into the audience, eating pita bread.
The last note of the song I obnoxiously scoop way up high then hold it. I made this up in my bedroom before rehearsals began and they kept it. The pose? I know I've seen it in some Broadway photo book. Do you know where I got it? I can't remember.
I say "...raising from the dead," Razz (one of the stunning/hot/talented back-up show girls) says "No!" and I turn and say "Yes!"
The cape is heavy. I am starting to get used to "working the cape" more during the song.
