Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Characters Who Belong on the Stage


I decided to participate in The Broke and the Bookish’s weekly meme post (click here for more info).  This weeks topic is 10 Characters Who Belong on the Stage:

1. Caddie Woodlawn from Caddie Woodlawn-The young, spirited, and tomboy young girl is enough to take over the entire stage herself.

2. John Yossarian from Catch 22-Because who wouldn’t enjoy seeing Yossarian’s quip and dull comedy on the stage? Bomb airplanes not included.

3. Jo March from Little Women-The character who inspires every strong female, I’d love to see her perform a play within a play.

4. Voldemort from the Harry Potter series- I’d like to see some monologues from this guy. He’d be good for an one act play perhaps?

5. Jay Gatsby from The Great Gastby-Flashing lights, money, love. This character has a flare for the dramatic.

6. Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice-I feel like we don’t get much of his brooding from the book, and his stoutness would present for a marvelous think piece drama.

7. Bigger Thomas from Native Son– He’s guttural and has a lot to say.

8.  Dorian Gray from The Picture of Dorian Gray-He’s embodies show presence. However he might deliver too many monologues about himself.

9. Patrick Bateman from American Psycho-The craziness Bateman exudes is exactly the kind of drama that would be interesting on the stage.

10. Lady Macbeth from Macbeth– Although technically she already was on the stage, I wouldn’t mind seeing her evil devices being carried out in a new and innovative way.

Which characters would you choose to be on the stage?
