>< Mickey says, "Susan, we've also broken the attendance record for EMuck
tonight, thanks to you!"
>< SusanEgan says, "Well, thank you!"

>< First question:
>< (Cryslink) You've had a chance to play different roles - the ingenue, the
bad girl, the secret-identity cat burglar ;) ... are there any other roles
that you'd like to try? Do you have a "favorite" role that you've already

>< SusanEgan says, "My favorite role is always the one I'm doing at the time."
>< SusanEgan says, "but I've been lucky to play characters that I've loved."
>< SusanEgan says, "I guess I would really enjoy doing something serious."
>< SusanEgan says, "maybe a Joan of Arc, what do you think?"
>< Mickey says, "Alanna asks a follow-up... what's your favorite musical?"
>< SusanEgan says, "hmmmmm...it's always changing....."
>< SusanEgan says, "today, Sweeney Todd."
>< Mickey says, "I'd like to see you in that musical!"
>< Mickey says, "What role would you like in it, if you were to do it?"
>< SusanEgan says, "People think I probably want to play Joanna."
>< SusanEgan says, "but I don't."
>< SusanEgan says, "I want to play Toby."
>< Mickey says, "Agarboy asks a follow-up, if you were to do a Joan D'Arc
movie, who would you want to write and direct it?"
>< SusanEgan says, "hmm, Kenneth Brannaugh."
>< Mickey says, "We have 68 questions in the queue still to go, so we'll try to
keep the follow-ups to a minimum.  Let's move on!"

>< Next question:
>< (Cryslink) When you look back at your run in "Beauty and the Beast", is
there a memory that stands out as being extremely memorable for you?

>< SusanEgan says, "Oh....there are so many good ones..."
>< SusanEgan says, "The first preview on Broadway -- it was my dream 
coming true."
>< SusanEgan says, "Silly one:  Terry pulled my wig off on stage!"
>< SusanEgan says, "I was bald, it was a horrible sight!"
>< SusanEgan says, "Children were crying, I'm sure!"
>< Mickey grins and asks a follow-up from Disneygirl, "Did he do it on
>< SusanEgan says, "Of course not!"
>< SusanEgan says, "but he had to wear these rubber Beast gloves so he could
never feel what he was touching!"
>< Mickey says, "A follow-up from Alanna: What's your fave song in BatB?"
>< SusanEgan says, "'Human Again'."
>< SusanEgan says, "It's what the whole play is about!"

>< Next question:
>< (Cryslink) How does it feel to know that you will go down in history as
being a part of a Disney Classic? Would you like to do another Disney film?
Have you always wanted to do a cartoon voice?

>< SusanEgan says, "Honestly?"
>< SusanEgan says, "Being a voice for a Disney Animated Feature was a HUGE
dream of mine."
>< SusanEgan says, "It really was!"
>< SusanEgan says, "...precisely because Disney films are classics."
>< SusanEgan says, "Hercules will outlast me by far."
>< SusanEgan says, "And yes, I would love to do another."
>< Mickey says, "What is your favorite song *overall*, and do you think "Human
Again" should have been dropped from the animated feature production of BatB?"
>< SusanEgan says, "No, Human Again should not have been dropped."
>< SusanEgan says, "and rumor has it that they are animating it for the next
release of Beauty and the Beast."
>< Mickey nods about that rumor
>< Mickey says, "And your fave song, even not in BatB?"
>< SusanEgan says, "Oh God, I don't know...."
>< SusanEgan says, "probably Send In the Clowns."
>< Mickey says, "OK, on to the REQUESTed questions again!"

>< Next question:
>< (MuSE) Um.. I was wondering if you've read any good books lately? ;)  {I
like your taste! "Mists of Avalon"... fascinating!)

>< SusanEgan says, "I'm reading a great one now called the Snow Leopard by
Peter Mathieson."
>< SusanEgan says, "it's a true story about a man who treks thru the mountains
of Nepal."
>< Mickey says, "Agarboy follows-up, Have you read the sequel to the Mist of
Avalon, Lady of Avalon?"
>< SusanEgan says, "No, is it good?"
>< Mickey says, "Is it, Agarboy?"
>< Mickey says, "He says Lady of Avalon is the Greatest of Arturian

>< Next question:
>< (guest2) This is cool, isn't it?

>< Mickey grins at guest2
>< SusanEgan says, "it's WAY cool!"
>< Mickey says, "Phil wonders if you meant to say this is a "real slice" being
here. ;-)"
>< SusanEgan giggles.
>< SusanEgan says, "it's the best thing since they put the pocket in pita!"
>< Mickey says, "Huh-hah!"

>< Next question:
>< (Angela) Hi!! Oh wow! I'm feeling a little star struck at the moment.
So..um.. after doing hundreds of performances as Belle, what were your
feelings as you took your bows in Beauty and the Beast for the last time?

>< SusanEgan says, "Well, I felt fulfilled.  I felt like I had really played
it for a good length of time."
>< SusanEgan says, "and it was time to give the role over to someone new."
>< Mickey says, "Starcade wonders if it was as rewarding as it appears to
be to see all the kids fulfill a dream of meeting "a princess" after the
>< SusanEgan says, "Oh, I loved meeting the kids!"
>< SusanEgan says, "But sometimes they weren't as happy to meet me!"
>< SusanEgan says, "because I look like Peter Pan, not Belle!"
>< SusanEgan says, "but the kids always loved Willa!"
>< SusanEgan says, "(the Wonder Dog)"
>< Mickey says, "Starcade sends you a hug, Susan, and has to leave cause the
lab is closing. :-( Josie follows-up: Have you seen Sarah Uriarte or anyone
else in the role?"
>< SusanEgan says, "No, I never did because I was in California!"
>< Mickey says, "Cinderella asks about the "real slice" line and wonders if it
was in the original script, or did you add it yourself?"
>< SusanEgan says, "Um, it was in the original script, but it was actually in
my audition scene."
>< SusanEgan says, "I think when I delivered it, I surprised them."
>< SusanEgan says, "because they were expecting Belle."
>< SusanEgan says, "The gesture that Meg does in the movie is what I did at
the audition."
>< SusanEgan says, "I think it's why I got the job."
>< Mickey says, "They expected sweet, innocent Belle, huh? And you sure
surprised them!"
>< SusanEgan says, "yep!"
>< SusanEgan giggles!
>< Mickey says, "What was your audition scene?"
>< SusanEgan says, "the scene when I first met Herc."
>< Mickey says, "OK! Back to the REQUESTed questions"

>< Next question:
>< (Phil) Got  Danny DeVito's email Address? Let's just say there are some of
us who are...tired of Meg.  =;o)

>< Mickey throws a cheese ball at Phil
>< SusanEgan giggles,
>< Mickey says, "Mind your manners, Phil!"
>< SusanEgan says, "Oh, Phil, Schmill!"
>< Mickey grins
>< SusanEgan says, "Aren't you late for something!"
>< Mickey says, "Were you alone at the audition or was there anyone else
famous there too?"
>< SusanEgan says, "I was there....shoot, I'm not going to remember this guy's
>< SusanEgan says, "but he was in Damn Yankees on Broadway."
>< SusanEgan says, "He played the coach"
>< SusanEgan says, "and when they were explaining what kind of person they
wanted to play Phil, his name was the description."
>< SusanEgan says, "and then he didn't even get the job."
>< SusanEgan says, "it'll come to me."
>< Mickey says, "Josie says Dick LaTessa was the coach in Damn Yankees, she
>< SusanEgan says, "thank you, Josie!"
>< Mickey says, "EMuck's Phil apologizes and sends you a big kiss, by the way.
Back to the REQUESTed questions now..."

>< Next question:
>< (Double_D) How did Disney approach you for the role of Meg?

>< SusanEgan says, "They didn't! They wouldn't let me audition!"
>< SusanEgan says, "They had to audition everybody else in the world"
>< SusanEgan says, "before they'd even consider seeing me."
>< SusanEgan says, "They thought I was Belle."

>< Mickey grins but holds his ear defensively
>< SusanEgan giggles.

>< Next question:
>< (Double_D) Did you work with the animators in developing the character of
Meg?  Was there a lot of you in Meg's character?

>< SusanEgan says, "Meg was based on the 1930s and 1940s fast-talking dames,
like Barbara Stanwyck."
>< SusanEgan says, "I loved those movies!"
>< SusanEgan says, "so I did my impersonations of those women."
>< SusanEgan says, "They filmed me while I recorded and they definitely used
my expressions and gestures, although I wish I had that head of hair, too. :)"
>< Mickey says, "lar3ry follows-up: If they thought you were only Belle,
did they approach you for any of the BatB sequels?"
>< SusanEgan says, "No, Paige O'Hara does them."
>< SusanEgan says, "wonderfully, by the way."
>< Mickey says, "Speaking of sequels, will you be in the "Hercules" animated
series Disney is making?"

>< Mickey says, "Bat wonders if Roger is doing the animated series then?"
>< SusanEgan says, "Nope, it's Tate."

>< Mickey agrees!
>< SusanEgan says, "Maybe an afternoon talk show!"
>< Mickey says, "Did you meet Jennifer Aniston, Pi wonders?"
>< SusanEgan says, "Yes! She's very nice and beautiful."

>< Next question:
>< (Double_D) Did you ever think that BatB on Broadway would be so popular?

>< SusanEgan says, "Oh, gosh.... We didn't know what to expect because it
was Disney's first theatrical venture."
>< SusanEgan says, "But we loved doing it in rehearsal!"
>< SusanEgan says, "So we just hoped that that would translate in performance."
>< Mickey says, "Beast says he'll be the first guest on your talk show, and
Cogsworth says bring all of us on! ;-) Susan, you're certainly welcome to host
a talk show here on EMuck if you'd like!"

Peter Pan!"

were auditioning for months."
>< SusanEgan says, "and something just clicked!"

>< SusanEgan says, "What's my typical day!"
>< Mickey says, "I already asked that question, no fair! ;-)"
>< SusanEgan says, "Triumph of Love is really exhausting."
>< SusanEgan says, "but Sooooooo much fun!"
>< SusanEgan says, "So basically my day is to try to conserve energy so I can
release it during the show."
>< Mickey says, "Sweesa follows-up and asks if all the work in Triumph is
worth it"
>< SusanEgan says, "completely!"

over gets boring?"

>< Mickey giggles
>< Mickey says, "Next question?"
>< SusanEgan says, "Yes!"

>< Next question:
>< (Jujuevins) Leonide is one of the most dynamic roles created for an actress
in recent memory. What challenges did you face in creating the role? And are
there any other roles out there in musical theatre land that you've always
wanted to play?

>< Mickey says, "We've covered the second part of that, so only answer part
one, please"
>< SusanEgan says, "The challege is that Leonide wears three disguises..."
>< SusanEgan says, "a waif, a seductress, and a man."
>< SusanEgan says, "But that's what made it fun!"
>< SusanEgan says, "It's like playing Belle, the Beast, and Gaston!"

>< Next question:
>< (EricR) What actors or directors would you love to make a film with?

>< SusanEgan giggles!
>< SusanEgan says, "I love the line "You can call me flower if you want to!"

>< Next question:
>< (RoLin) Let's see if I can get this right this time (I messed up before).
Susan, before I ask my question, I want to tell you once again how much I
loved your performance and the show. I'm trying to get back to NY to see it
again. Do you know if the show will transfer to a new theater, and if so when
will it reopen? I hope it does, b/c a show this good doesn't deserve to close
so soon. Thanks!! Hope to see you soon!-Lindsey

>< SusanEgan says, "We're hoping the show will transfer."
>< SusanEgan says, "But this season is so crazy!"
>< SusanEgan says, "If your show isn't Ragtime or Lion King, it's a struggle."

like. ;-)"
>< SusanEgan giggles.
>< SusanEgan says, "Thanks, Mick!"
>< SusanEgan says, "Can I call you Mick?"
>< Mickey says, "Sure can!"
>< Mickey says, "JHaulsee says "A move was built into the budget. Does that

and it brings a smile to your face.

be sparkling in the light.  Suspended from the frame is a beautiful silver
medallion with a sillouette of Mickey Mouse engraved into it.  It is supported
by a solid black cylindrical base on which is written: "TonyMuck Award - Susan

Dale goes home.
Dale has left.
Belle exclaims, "DD, with a star like Susan, there will be a zillion people on
if she comes back, like there were tonight!  :)"
Angela says, "I wanted to present the TonyMuck Award.  Did she even take it
with her?"
Belle exclaims, "NOTE:  If Susan is back next time, we will have a far more
powerful home for EMuck for her!"
Double_D asks, "What if it was unannounced?"
Sunni says, "anyone got  a hammer, I going to beat up my ISP"
MuSE says, "She picked it up Angela"
Angela says, "ok"
Mickey says, "Angela, MuSE told me to mention the award, so I did.... You got
credit for making it"
Belle exclaims, "EMuck's new home is starting to fall into line--a few more
weeks of testing and we will be ready to move!"

Disneygirl asks, "How do we request special guests?"
Cogsworth says, "Yes, but when it comes out of testing..."
Belle exclaims, "disneygirl, just let us know!"
MuSE exclaims, "Yup - she still has it!"
TishTash says, "Having any more people here would be rather unwieldly."
Wrynne butterfly-kisses Angela
Mickey says, "Well, Disneygirl, let me know -- and if you have their e-mail
address that helps! ;-)"
Sunni says, "yeah, I love to talk to Jymon Magon"
Beast consoles Angela by offering her some of Mrs Potts' hot coca and a tiny
muffin from an enchanted silver tray.
Disneygirl asks, "Okay, Belle, does anyone know how to get in touch with ILene
Woods? She's my favorite. :)"
Double_D says, "Brb..stopping my log."
RoLin has left.
Belle says, "we have ways of getting people here, disneygirl.  ;)"
Angela thanks Beast
Rufus says, "Having this many people was unwieldy.  Figaro logged off early
because he couldn't read fast enough to make any sense of it all."
Disneygirl exclaims, "Okay, well use them! On ILene!"
Wrynne says, "I hear THAT"
MuSE says, "ok b'ys - I gotta go... I'm the one that has to say up til 2 <g> I
have to travel home tomorrow too!"

MuSE huggles Lumiere... good to see you again!
Disneygirl says, "Come on, ILene do rah do, come one, ILENE do rah do...."
Belle smiles.  It's public record that we've already extended a written
invitation to Jodi Benson.
Sunni says, "lumiere"
Cogsworth says, "Goodnite all."
Wrynne heads out of the auditorium and goes to Mickey's Cyber Diner.
Sunni smiles
Cogsworth exclaims, "Jodi Benson, I'm not off yet!"
Beast is trying to get some folks on, also.  That's all he'll say. :-)
TishTash says, "Jodi Benson ... isn't she born-again?"
Disneygirl asks, "hy should I be careful about that? I *really* want her to
come! :)"
Wonderment watches the ...dots   after what Belle said  :)
Mickey winks at Disneygirl
Double_D says, "Brb.."
Belle says, "I didn't expect this many people.  perhaps one idea is to make
several other auditoriums and divide the audience up evenly."
Gusto says, "If you can get an invitation off to Rob Paulsen I'd be very, very
happy. ;)"
Mickey says, "...Russi Taylor"
Wonderment hugs Mickey in a great big yer welcome!

Lumiere smiles. :)
Sunni says, "oyr creator, Jymon Magon"
Disneygirl says, "Oh yeah. :)"
Beast exclaims, "Jerry Orbach was the voice of Zachary Fox on the Galaxy
Beast smiles
Cogsworth spins the hands upon his face.
TishTash says, "he's also in Law and Order. Mickey, I would write him at NBC."
Angela can't believe Susan left
Gusto says, "Ah.  Okay... Now I know who you mean."
Mickey smirks at Beast
Sunni sees Gusto blushe
Mickey says, "Thanks, TishTash"
Belle says, "well, we don't want to keep her up all night, Angela."
Sunni says, "yeah"
Gusto does not blush one tiny bit.
Double_D has arrived.
Double_D arrives and pauses to catch his breath from a brisk run.
Double_D yawns.
Cogsworth says, "Good bye."
Angela is mad that the chats are so late!!
Sunni nods
Cogsworth gets up and exits through the door to Arbordale Center.
Sunni says, "too early for me"
Angela hates time zones
Wonderment looks at the wise mage known as Double D.
Beast asks, "Mickey, when are we going to have me on as an invited speaker?
Mickey says, "Robby Benson?"
Mickey faints
Double_D grabs a broom..."Fore!"
Belle giggles.
Double_D rides around the room, cackling.

Mickey says, "Meecelet's wonderful! Enjoyed WDW again very much"
Wonderment says, "That could be interesting.  :)      I used to have his
number like 7 years ago  :P      Nice fellow"
Gusto says, "No... Unfortunately."
Mickey says, "No, that was her in here, asleep (non-connected), Disneygirl"
Wonderment exclaims, "eep!  I missed "look"ing at Sue!"
Disneygirl says, "Oh. :)"
Sunni says, "yeah, did he enjoy a certain PB"
Belle smiles.
Sunni says, "me to"
Disneygirl asks, "Can we scan her?"
Belle rides around the room, cackling.
Sunni looks at the young woman in blue and white.
Mickey says, "Sure"
SunniGummi looks at Belle's Plush Beast.
Sunni pets Plush Beast, who gets up on his plush hind legs and begs for a
Scooby Snack.
Plush Beast eeps a plush eep.
Double_D says, "It doesn't say anything. That's all."
Disneygirl says, "Oh, not much to look at. :)\"
Mickey says, "Go ahead and 'scan SusanEgan'"
Angela didn't even get to tell Susan Egan about the drawing of her.
Disneygirl says, "In a @desc sense, anyway. :)"
Double_D asks, "PB was here the while time?"
Wonderment says, "neat  :)"
Mickey says, "Her desc is "Actress Susan Egan""
Double_D says, "Whole"
Sunni says, "yeah, he was hiding"
Angela says, "Rufus scanned my picture and my drawing for me"
TishTash asks, "Say, Mick: how'd she make the chat from a 10:30 curtainclose?"
Double_D says, "I have a lot of editing this week."
Belle smiles.
Mickey says, "Very quickly, TishTash~"
TishTash says, "People speculated she was typing from her prod. offices."
Wonderment smiles... "it'll be neat to hear about WDW  n stuff  uff f  :)
Mickey says, "She told me she might be late. Luckily she wasn't"
Sunni smiles hearing about the new disney toon network
Double_D is checking any system stats.
TishTash says, "Guys, I just want to say, how honored I was to be a neophyte
amongst you. You're all officers and gentlepeople."
Rufus asks, "Wonderment, what do you want to hear about WDW?"
Double_D asks, "Toon network?"
Gusto nods to Sunni, then hopes his local TCI cable company will actually get
Double_D says, "Thank you."
Sunni also does to
Mickey says, "TishTash, you are quite welcome! Thanks!"
Gusto nods to DD.  "Yep... 'Toon Disney' it'll be called."
Sunni says, "yeah"
Sunni says, "yeah head to head with CN"
Double_D says, "I haven't heard this."
Gusto says, "Lots of good WDTVA stuff will be on there."
Gusto grins.
Wonderment exclaims, "Oh!   Just about the fun and rendezvous  :)   Maybe
later tho, I dont want to take away from the splendor of the Susan moment
Lumiere says, "Toon Disney will only be offered to cable companies currently
offering Disney Channel as a basic channel."
Sunni says, "yeah, and the return of GB"
Angela is depressed. "I gotta go now.  Nite everyone.  sigh ."
Gusto nodnods to Sunni.
Lumiere says, "That means I won't get it. :("
Mickey says, "Seeya, Angela!"
Double_D scratches his head.
Sunni says, "Lumi, TDC is going basic after this year"
Double_D exclaims, "Why wasn't I notified!?"
Rufus says, "Wonderment, as soon as I get my web pages uploaded with my trip
report, I'll post a notice in the General newsgroup."
Mickey grins
Gusto nods to Lumi.  "My cable system just got TDC as a free channel, but that
doesn't mean they'll carry Toon Disney."
Belle hugs Angela.  goodnight!  I hope you had a good time.
Mickey says, "Meecelet, you can stop taking notes on what people say now."
Meecelet says, "Thanks, Mickey!"
Lumiere exclaims, "Goodnight Angela!"
Gusto's cable company is rather antisocial when it comes to new channels...
Des Moines still only gets 34 channels.
Double_D is already taping "Ink and Paint Club."
Mickey says, "Time for you to go off to bed, Meecelet"
Rufus says, "G'nite, Angela.  Take care!"
Sunni says, "TCI Pueblo going free with TDC in Jan."
Meecelet says, "I had a great time!  G'nite, folks!"
Wonderment exclaims, "Thank you Ruf!       The news file here I hope
Wonderment exclaims, "Bye meece!"
Sunni says, "meecelet, hello"

Meecelet waves g'nite.
With a tear in your eye... and a thump in your heart... you go home.
