The show was a HUGE hit here, the original cast had just come back from an Off-Broadway engagement and I was THRILLED to be in the show (and it's amazing 11 month long run).
But at 90 minutes with no intermission and songs coming one right after the other, the show kicked my ass. Especially because my character, Tom, was the glue of the show - - the character who was propelled into the world of Schoolhouse Rock, so I was in EVERY number.
Except this one.
Which made me sad because this is one of my favorite Schoolhouse Rock songs. It just doesn't get any better than Essra Mohawk singing Sufferin' Til Suffrage.
Right at the beginning, the lyrics seem to speak our struggle for Gay Marriage...
"If we're all created equal, that's us too!"
Amen, sister! Amen!
