And then, in the show, once i was doing it, at the peak of the second act there was this basketball game that had to happen on stage, which was very like, theatricalised. But it involved me making, like, three baskets that were, like, plot points that i had to be like, ker-kung.

General musical descriptions

Dear Evan Hansen: Ben Platt looking into the audience with a sad expression for like 2 ½ hours

(bla bla bla) Great Comet of 1812: simple plot surrounded by a kinda easy plot surrounded by a lot of other crap (but still somehow managed to be amazing)

Hamilton: over hype: the musical

Falsettos: oh the GAYNESS of it all

Charlie and the chocolate factory: we say we’re family friendly but we also show a child getting ripped in half. (Very underrated)

Sunset Blvd: it’s like a really fucked up beauty and the beast.

Phantom of the Opera: sInG oNcE aGaIn WiTh Me OuR sTrAnGe DuEt

Cats: a two hour tourist trap

School of Rock: talented children+ Alex Brightman + Sierra Bogess= a show I wanna see!!

Something rotten: Shakespeare was a prick

Come from away: WELCOME TO THE ROCK

Spring Awakening: don’t have sex: or you’ll get pregnant, and die

Wicked: you already know

Heathers: it’s like if Caty just fucking KILLED REGINA.

Carrie: rated R Matilda

Matilda: R E V O L T I N G C H I L D R E N

(these are jokes I love all of these)

typecasting musical theater dudes

musical theater men and the character types they usually play

Jeremy Jordan: earnest but naïve

Andrew Rannells: narcissistic but innocent

Jonathan Groff: innocent but narcissistic also plays straight

Christian Borle: Slightly Unbalanced Man ™ also plays gay

Brian d’Arcy James: suffering everyman

Ben Platt: anxious compulsive liar

Nic Rouleau: Elder Kevin Price

Lin-Manuel Miranda: himself

It shouldn’t be that impressive that like, a gay man can play straight, or a straight man can play gay. If they can’t then like, you’re just a shitty actor.
