what she says: I’m fine 

what she means: I don’t understand why they can’t professionally record broadway shows and release them to the public, there would be no need for bootlegs, broadway fans FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD could watch, it would help expand the theatre community and preserves something that is so beautiful and special to so many people.

TITLE DROPS 

 edits by me, made with canva

I decided to dig through all the lyrics sheets of some of the most popular musicals, finding the first times the titles of the musicals were stated. It was actually challenging, surprisingly, for some of the plays where the title isn’t actually said in the songs that much.  But I made some pretty edits, and had a lot of fun with it. I also did one for Pippin, Sound of music and Gigi but. These were my favorites. 

YAY FOR MUSICALS.

Happy 33rd Birthday Jeremy Michael Jordan! (November 20th,1984)

If you feel lost or stuck don’t be afraid to look back to your dreams as a kid for inspiration because there might be something there waiting for you to rediscover something that could change your life forever. When I was a kid, I wanted to be just like Jack Kelly. I didn’t realize it, but these tiny seeds of a dreamer and a charming, outgoing leader were planted back then. And as I grew up, they kind of remained dormant because when I grew up I was more of a realist. I was shy, I wasn’t outgoing, and I was a loner. I wasn’t a leader. And then I got cast as Jack Kelly. And as I began to play the role, the seeds that were planted began to slowly grow. And as I played Jack more and more, Jeremy began to change more and more.

Universe of constant spinning.
Every end and new beginning.
I begin to feel that something’s happening to me… 
And by closing my eyes I’ll be finding Neverland.
