Gaga - the simple fact that you might actually see this is a bit overwhelming...I'll try to keep it together! (who am I kidding, I'm a ball of nerves just writing this!)

It's been clear to your fans for ages, and now with Cheek to Cheek is clear to those who are less familiar with your music that you aren't simply a 'pop star' - rather you're a powerhouse musical artist. That matched with your acting skills that you've demonstrated on SNL and elsewhere (and your previous theatre background) lead me to long for the day when you bring your talents to a Broadway musical. Although I imagine if this were to happen, you'd be playing a new role that was written just for you, I'm curious - if you were to play your choice of any role in musical theatre, what would it be?

On a personal note: I've been a die hard fan since 2009 (you may also notice my username here is a nod to Marry the Night) Your music, especially your albums Born This Way and ARTPOP have helped me through two particularly difficult and dark periods in my life where I was challenged beyond anything I thought I could handle. These albums effortlessly became my daily soundtrack and now having survived those challenges, when I listen they continue to remind me of the strength you helped me find in myself. Thank you for your art, the joy you've brought to my life and the power and beauty of your voice that has helped me find my own.

But of course! I should have known. You'd be a spectacular Sally.

Judy -

I promise I'll ask a question but you'll have to excuse me for a moment...

You are my hero. Without you, I'd never have gotten hooked on reading as a kid, and ultimately chosen to become an English teacher. I'm inspired by your activism, and especially your belief in the importance of helping young adults deal with challenging issues. Thank you for everything you've given us.

I had the pleasure of seeing you on Broadway in 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee - what was your favorite part of doing live theatre?

Skimbleshanks was always my favorite - you'd be perfect! Thanks for answering my question.
