Dear 100 Hour Board,
Pretend that Severus Snape, rather than using his top-notch acting skills to be a spy, had instead gone into muggle musical theater. What roles would you have liked to see him in?
I mentioned this question to someone who pointed out that Alan Rickman has, in fact, done musical theater, and provided me with this clip from Sweeney Todd. It's not quite the same as Snape doing musical theater, but it's something.
Let the record show, however, that I really want this to be a thing.
I would LOVE to see Severus attempt the role of Colonel Christopher Brandon in any production of Sense and Sensibility. THAT would be quite a sight.
Cosette in Les Miserables.
We discussed this during the podcast and determined that we're going to (read: not going to) have a Kickstarter funded Board produced musical production of "My Fair Harry" (a parody of My Fair Lady) in which Haleakalā will play Severus Snape playing Henry Higgins as he struggles to train Harry Potter to do something (possibly to pass off as a Pureblood raised in the Wizarding world.)
Stay tuned, Ladies and Gentlemen.
