first_imgSelfie right before I go onstage“#shingleselfie a moment before I enter stage left bicycled by Averic behind a saw horse, which fans of the original L. Frank Baum novels will recognize.” View Comments My good luck charm”I want to brag again about my dresser, Michael, whose competition quilts are riddled around the theater including this one currently hanging on my dressing room wall.” The best spot in the theater“When I’m not onstage, one can find me in the rehearsal room doing yoga on Saturdays between shows or playing piano and singing, three of my favorite activities.” My must-have pre-show item”‘This coffee falls into your stomach, and straightway there is a general commotion. Ideas begin to move like the battalions of the Grand Army of the battlefield, and the battle takes place. Things remembered arrive at full gallop, ensuing to the wind. The light cavalry of comparisons deliver a magnificent deploying charge, the artillery of logic hurry up with their train and ammunition, the shafts of with start up like sharpshooters. Similes arise, the paper is covered with ink; for the struggle commences and is concluded with torrents of black water, just as a battle with powder.’ -Honoré de Balzac” The best costume piece I wear“Need I say more? #fresno” My favorite co-star“She has been with me since almost the beginning of my journey with Wicked. Kara Lindsay, you are my savior and are number one in my book. Thank you for everything both onstage and off.” My favorite line in the show“Love everyone for who they are, for that will lead to acceptance which is the stepping stone to unconditional love.” Thanks to awesome vlogs and backstage photo features, we already know the Wicked crew has a blast behind the scenes. But for more backstage fun, asked Matt Shingledecker, who is currently “Dancing Through Life” as Fiyero, to go on a photo scavenger hunt and take snapshots of a few of his favorite things around the theater. From his quilted prized possession to the tightest costume on Broadway, check out Shingledecker’s Photo Stash below! The crew member who saves my ass“My view from my dressing room door, including the crew member who saves my ass (once with pink tape), my dresser, Michael. #pano” My favorite fan gift“I will forever use this as a headshot when I audition for any animated project. The artist also let me borrow an Elphaba dress replica for a BC/EFA concert in Toronto. You know who you are! ;)” My must-have dressing room items”These are few of my favorite things. Thanks to Lee Slobotkin (Boq) for most of them.” My favorite snacks“These are my favorite intermission/low blood sugar snacks, Munchkin Seeds, made by Wicked’s very own Mark Overton. And for the best thing to eat on a two-show day, I turn to Spoonfed, coming soon to midtown Manhattan.”last_img
