It Still Remains as One of My Life Goals: Find Someone Who Will Hug Me the Same Way Oscar Hugged Evan

I’m very proud of the musical collage I made

  • Me meeting someone new: I don't know who you are, or where you come from, bUT LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING-
  • Every friend around: oh no
  • Me: *deep breath*
  • Friend: here we go
  • Me: Deaf Spring Awakening is so fucking good and waitress' set should've won a tony and heathers needs to go on Broadway and tuck everlasting needs more love and I need to just hold onto every single cast member of Hamilton forever and keep them safe and warm and also another thing is that the Tonys were good this year but Hamilton won too much stuff and American psychos lighting is so fucking good and the color purple is so damn beautiful and Wicked is just a classic and oh god west side story is better than Romeo and Juliet and les mis is just so tragic and-

what she says: i’m fine

what she means: Deaf West’s Spring Awakening was the first show on Broadway to incorporate American Sign Language into not only the songs and dialogue, but the choreography. The choreography (and essentially the whole show) were blocked and shaped around the ASL, and it wasn’t even nominated in the Best Choreography category for the Tony’s

catch me i’m falling //  songs from the stage for those theatre kids who can’t remember how to be okay

before the lobotomy/extraordinary girl - american idiot // without you - RENT // see i’m smiling - the last five years // everything else - next to normal // quiet - matilda the musical // how did we come to this? - the wild party // days and days - fun home // no more - into the woods // as long as he needs me - oliver! // i dreamed a dream - les miserables // touch me - spring awakening // lifeboat - heathers the musical // i miss the mountains - next to normal // the moon - once the musical // drink with me - les miserables / 21 guns - american idiot // say it to me now - once the musical // light (finale) - next to normal

The ‘Wicked’ movie is on its way — but these 9 musicals should hit theaters first

Wicked, is making its slow march to theaters. In an interview with Film Divider, producer Marc Platt let slip that a movie version of the show could be in theaters by 2016. Winnie Holzman (My So-Called Life, the original Wicked musical’s book) is currently writing the script and Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot) may direct, but Platt warns that nothing is set in stone.

Wicked is a fine musical. But before Hollywood goes and pours its cash into Elphaba and Glinda, it might want to consider these nine shows, which would not only make way better movies, but way more important ones.
