    The thing about musicals is that you could find songs about the superficiality of urban life or Shakespeare scenes set to music, and then you’ll find ones about people obsessed with doing the conga or about wanting to go to Disneyland.

    My favorite bits from musicals~ 9/500

    The first time I heard this line, I got goosebumps. The fact that she has to feel so detached from herself to be considered”healthy” is not healthy at all. It’s terrifying.

    broadway is more than theater. its more than belting songs. its more than phenomenal sets, or brilliant costumes. its more than intense choreography,   or lengthy scripts. 

    broadway is about the story. the connection an actor makes with an audience member. the tear falling down your face after curtain. 

    broadway is about all the kids who would give up everything to be a part of it. who would risk their future for a spot on the stage. 

    broadway is life

    Theatre just makes me really happy. I can’t describe it. I just know that no matter what is happening in my life, I can listen to cast recordings or watch bootlegs or go to rehearsal or see shows. I can escape the shitty day/week/month/year I’m having and immerse myself into someone else’s life. It’s something that is just so cool and I am so glad I have it as my escape.

  8. MOTHERFUCKING THEATRE ETIQUETTE TIPS

    prose-b4bros:

    1. Wear your motherfucking best clothes—it shows the actors that you think their performance is worth dressing up for.

    2. Shut the fuck up—Don’t fucking open that hole on your face while the show is taking place.

    3. Put your motherfucking cell phone away—that’s fucking rude and I really shouldn’t have to explain why

    If you think about it, Marius and Cosette are the opposite of Romeo and Juliet.  They fell in love and everyone else died.
