Tonys 2012: John Lithgow, Corbin Bleu on Their Dream Stage Roles

When THR asked Tony nominees and guests for their dream stage roles, Shakespeare came up more than once.

"I feel I owe it to myself to play some great Shakespeare roles," said John Lithgow, who was nominated as best actor for his role as a '60s-era journalist in The Columnist, adding that he'd need to tackle an "age-appropriate" part.

Constantine Maroulis, a 2009 Tony nominee for Rock of Ages, says he's like to take on "something really cool and modern and stripped-down" from The Bard.

Meanwhile, Cristin Milioti, who was nominated for her role in the hit musical Once, confessed her dream was to play Sally Bowles in Cabaret; Godspell's Corbin Bleu is dying to play Frank N. Further in The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

As for Michael Cerveris, a nominee for Evita, he can't nail down just one role. (He's probably already played most of them.)
