Sarah Sands: Immigrants are the role models
A president senses his power seeping away as everyone looks past him to the next election and a female alternative. You can see why Francis Underwood, played by Kevin Spacey in House of Cards, is melancholy.

Resolved Question: Parts similar to eliza
So recently my voice teacher told me that the most perfect part for me would be eliza doolittle.
apparently it suits my voice and range nicely
but my mom told me its also because i look a lot like audrey hepburn
(ive been told by many people besides her too)
are there any other parts that i should consider trying out for in the future that are similar to eliza either vocally or appearance-wise in musical theatre?

Resolved Question: How to get Eliza
I've fallen in love with Eliza Doolittle, and her quirky fashion sense. Does anyone know where I can get clothes in her style?

Thanks everyone! x
