What Broadway character should I dress as !?

I'm going to a party tomorrow night at my friend's house - it's her older brother's party, so it's a drinking party with mostly college kids. I won't be drinking, but the theme is Broadway plays and I'm supposed to dress as a character. Any suggestions? I'm 16, so I don't want anything too old or too revealing or anything. Everyone is basically being characters from Rent, but I haven't seen the play and I've only seen parts of the movie so I don't want to do that.

Who's your favorite Broadway female character? Please help! (Nothing too elaborate either, like Elphaba or Glinda or anything). Thanks so much1

    Well, answering your last question, my all-time favorite Broadway female is Eponine from the show Les Misérables. You may or may not have heard of it, but it's worth looking up. The good thing about a costume for that would be that her character is about your age, it's a simple but unique costume, and, well, she's awesome. Here's a fan website-type thing just about her character: http://www.freewebs.com/cesca16/

    And here are some good pictures for costume ideas: http://www.freewebs.com/cesca16/eponinepictures.ht...

    Um, if you decide that Eponine isn't your thing, I would also suggest maybe Evita or even Joanna from Sweeney Todd. There are so many shows out there, I'm sure you can find something if you don't want any of these. :)
