Before settling on the name of Tiny Tim for his character in "A Christmas Carol", three other alliterative names were considered by Charles Dickens. They were: Little Larry, Puny Pete and Small Sam.

And.. LOL This one's a funny one. It's from the 1981 Tony's apparently.. and it's Patti Lupone who was the original Evita on Broadway. Now, I'm not a huge fan of her.. for a few reasons, but one of them is her diction.

Someone reposted the broadcast and did subtitles.. as to what it sounds like she's singing. Hysterical.

Well, I know your diction would be better. How a woman can get on Broadway in a new musical when no one knows the f'ng lyrics and sing like that is beeyond me. I hope you're auditioning?

And Puny Pete rocks my world.

i'm definitely auditioning. I might even be taking some latin dance classes just in case! (the rest of their season is tap shows - The Producers and George M! so a friend is helping me brush up on that too)

I thought that Charles Dickens would have had a larger stock of names to choose from. I was never too please with "tiny tim" being a name but none of those sound any better either.

That's horrible. Its like she's got a mouthful of peanut butter.

And in my opinion, Dickens should have gone with Deserving Donny, because god only punishes the people he hates.
