Roger in RENT. So passive, I just wanted to slap him.

Minnie Fay and Vandergelder's niece, Ermengarde in HELLO, DOLLY!

Tinkerbell. Even as child, I refused to clap and was disappointed when she didn't die already.

God, I hate Maggie the Cat too -- though maybe i haven't seen a great stage version of her. The Liz Taylor film version makes me race for the remote. That voice!

The "white" cat from CATS.

FDR in Annie. I just cringe so much that he's actually worked into the plot, and he's so strange, like a robot.

Brian in Avenue Q.

Louis in The King and I.

Patti LuPone

"KKKAAAAAAADS.. I don't know what's wrong with these KHHAAADS today."

Only good thing about that revival was the outline of Gerald Nolan Funk's cock in that underwear.

Agree! Wish they'd shot him before that stupid "Little People" solo.

All of the children in BIG. All of the teens in the Roundabout revival of BYE BYE BIRDIE

Tessie, the orphan in ANNIE who constantly says, "Oh, my goodness! Oh, my goodness!"

by Anonymousreply 3312/10/2012

Pippin. What an idiot.

Jesus Christ. All he does is shriek and whine in the ALW musical.

Almost all the characters in "Hello, Dolly!" come off as hopelessly twee. That is a musical I cannot stand.

Mei Li in "Flower Drum Song." She's practically mentally challenged.

Mr. Bumble in Oliver

Abernathy in Guys and Dolls

The servants in "Annie". They're all far too happy to have an extra person to pick up after.

"Blue is her best color. No, red I think."

", bubbles, I think."

As you can see, they're also terrible at sticking with their first choice for anything.

"The silk sheets! Noooo... the satin sheets I think!"

You've got a point.

Anybodys in West Side Story. The world's most annoying dyke.

by Anonymousreply 4012/10/2012

Littlechap, the "Everyman" lead in STOP THE WORLD, I WANT TO GET OFF!

He was played by Anthony Newly, made up like a white-faced mime in a tight black clown costume if that gives you a hint.
