Crazy Costume Stories
MEGAN HILTY (Wicked, 9 to 5)
“I was in Toronto with Wicked and the very first quick change (from the bubble dress into the Shiz schoolgirl outfit) was supposed to take about 15 seconds. After years of doing the show we could practically do it in our sleep but at this particular performance, the zipper on the bubble dress got stuck - the clock was ticking and I was supposed to make my grand entrance singing on top of a pile of bedazzled luggage. I didn’t know what was wrong (or even panic) until I realized I was about to start singing and I was STILL in the dress! Someone yelled “CUT HER OUT OF IT!!!” and proceeded to take a large pair of scissors down the back of my $30,000.00 gown! In the meantime, the people onstage couldn’t continue the scene without me - so while a swarm of dressers pulled, cut, and ripped me out of the first costume and shoved me into the next one, I just kept singing. And singing. AND SINGING for what seemed like forever (and making up whatever came into my head). The entire cast was stuck onstage waiting for me but eventually I rolled out on that luggage cart and everyone in the theater applauded. It was pretty apparent that something had gone wrong, but that’s what live theater is about - no matter what happens, the show must go on and the fun part is trying to cover up when things go wrong! Unfortunately, it wasn’t so fun for the wardrobe department, who had to frantically figure out how to put my bubble dress back together before I had to wear it again in Act 2!”

There is now a measles outbreak in New York. A whole ward of cancer patients currently undergoing chemotherapy have been exposed to it. Imagine fighting cancer for years only to die because some jackass didn’t vaccinate their brat and you caught measles.

Then there’s Armstrong’s little hair loop.
Are you suggesting the Hair Loop, which has been passed down by the Armstrong family for generations, which has survived countless battles and remained perfectly coiffed, is not a testament to the ELEGANCE and STRENGTH of the Armstrong legacy?!
