The Fourth of July is only a few days away, and if you’re like us, you’re prepping by stocking up on burgers, beer and summertime showtunes. We asked you which Broadway party animal you’d most want to invite to your Independence Day bash. The results are in, and here’s who’s coming to the party! But let’s get one thing out of the way, first: we’re severely disappointed that the hot dog man from Bullets Over Broadway didn’t make the cut. Hot dog man, you’re always welcome to our barbecue.
1. Genie, Aladdin—20%
There’s no doubt that the Genie would be the life of the party at
your Fourth of July virtually any celebration. Just rub that lamp and you’d get a wisecracking, cartwheeling jokester. And arguably the best part of having the Genie over? He’d provide his own pyrotechnics—no need for fireworks! We also wouldn’t hate it if James Monroe Iglehart brought over some McDonald’s fries.
2. Hedwig, Hedwig and the Angry Inch—19%
As long as she promised not to spit beer in our face, we’d totally love for this German rock goddess to celebrate the birth of America with us. And just imagine the outfit/wig she’d put together for the occasion. Nothing says “freedom” like lap dances from Neil Patrick Harris.
3. Mrs. Wormwood, Matilda—15%
We may not have a monarchy in the U.S., but we do have Queen Lesli! This Broadway firecracker’s moves are as hot as the backyard grill. Something tells us that she might be the kind of person who just watches from the telly, though.
