Friday Internet Finds

Happy Friday from me, for the last time in the United States for several months! Anyone else super excited about autumn not just for the changing leaves and dropping temperature, but for the seemingly endless casting announcements?

Get In, Loser: In honor of the release of some of the promotional materials for the Mean Girls musical this week, I had to share this Buzzfeed quiz which tells you which high school movie character you are because I got Regina George! (A little worried about that answer actually...)

Reunited: I woke up Wednesday morning to an exciting casting announcement: two of my favorite West End Miss Saigon actors reunited in The Woman in White in London! I've wanted to see Chris Peluso in something since he replaced Alistair in Miss Saigon and I still regret that I never got to see Carolyn Maitland as Ellen when she understudied the role. I'll definitely be buying tickets to this Andrew Lloyd Webber show that I'm actually not familiar with, as it also stars Anna O'Byrne.

Superstars: Speaking of Miss Saigon, they released a music video of Rachelle Ann Go and Eva Noblezada singing a reimagined "Movie in My Mind" and it's absolutely stunning.

Losing a Legend: This week Peter Hall who founded the Royal Shakespeare Company amongst other contributions to British theatre passed away at the age of 86. This article from the NY Times elaborates on how much the London theatre industry owes to him.

One Last Look: I know it seems like all I care about is Great Comet (sometimes it feels like that), but I couldn't resist sharing Lucas Steele's heartbreaking video he made in honor of the show's closing. His haunting stripped-down cover of "Goodbye My Gypsy Lovers" paired with footage of the theatre being broken down brought me to tears.
