Okay so I see so many posts about Hamilton, Heathers, Great Comet, Dear Evan Hansen, or more recently, Be More Chill. So. Many. Posts.
But where is the love for older musicals? Where are all the posts about Chicago, or Rent, Phantom of the Opera, Jesus Christ Superstar, Spring Awakening or even musicals as big as Wicked and Les Mis. Give them some love, or some art, or some headcanons too! Talk about Enjolras or Elphaba, draw the six merry murderesses in their Cell Block Tango, make a Take Me or Leave Me animatic. Tell me your dream casts for a Spring Awakening movie.
I know there’s more new content for these new musicals, and the fandoms are bigger, but we wouldn’t even have these new musicals at all. These are the shows I grew up on, and I hope there can be more and more new fans that go out and listen or experience them for the first time like I did. Embrace the old as well as the new.
