Five Broadway Roles for Norman Bates (Yes, THAT Norman Bates!)

first_img Mark Cohen in Rent I mean, isn’t Mark a little troubled anyway? Also, Mom issues. Carmen Ghia in The Producers Jesusssss, Norma! Let the kid have some FUN already! We didn’t expect Broadway to pop up on Bates Motel, but in the latest episode of A&E’s brilliant Psycho prequel series, Norma Bates (Vera Fermiga) dragged troubled son Norman (SPOILER: He most likely just killed his teacher) to a friggin’ musical theater audition! Although Norman didn’t wind up trying out for the community theater production of South Pacific, Norma did (wowing the crowd with “Maybe This Time” from Cabaret). OK, clearly Norman isn’t right for any of the roles in the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic, but we couldn’t help but dream up five musical theater roles that the creepy kid could make a killing in! Sweeney Todd in Sweeney Todd A no-brainer. You’re never too young to start playing with knives. Moritz in Spring Awakening You know, cause he’s totally f’d. The Emcee in Cabaret Forget two ladies—he’s got two personalities. View Commentslast_img
