FLEA WAS AMAZING OH MY GOD.
@magical-beep-frog and I achieved Will Chase nirvana, @sergeant-bucky-barnes and I celebrated a big day, and I got so much stuff (though my earbuds are now missing, RIP my earbuds)!!

My favorite things I got at Flea this year:

- The Tony voters’ script for Hand To God (now signed by Geneva Carr! ❤️)
- The Tony voters’ pamphlet for Something Rotten! containing a note from Kevin McCollum
- the opening night gift mixtape from David Lindsay-Abaire to the cast of High Fidelity
- a Shrek the Musical windowcard (signed by Jen Cody!)
- an Avenue Q souvenir program signed by Rick Lyons and Stephanie D'Abruzzo
- a High Fidelity windowcard (now signed by Will Chase! ❤️)
- THE SOMETHING ROTTEN! OPENING NIGHT CAST GIFT, A REALLY NICE LEATHER MESSENGER BAG ❤️🍳🍅
- Gregg Barnes’ Something Rotten! costume design for Nigel Bottom (now signed by Josh Grisetti! ❤️)

So good to see all my friends and faves!!

i have never understood people who think musicals are boring/lame. they get away with way more violence, sex, social commentary, and profanity than mainstream movies do, just because its all done onstage in song form

and thats amazing

Theatre is so amazing actually like

You want a musical about revolting people because they can’t use the bathroom? Got it

A musical with puppets after they get out of college who have upbeat songs about racism, sexualities, and sex? Yep we got it

Maybe one about gay Mormons who love Orlando and Star Wars? You guessed it

Fucking Shrek the musical?? Yeah (and its actually not as shitty as it sounds)

Not two mention a musical that accurately portrays a dysfunctional family due to mental disease?

Rock musical based on presidents lives?

Addams Family and Mathilda the musical? Aight man

Anything you want there’s probably a show about it tbh

Doing theatre is stressful, but theatre stress is a different kind of stress. Theatre stress is stress that I want; it’s stress that I crave. I thrive off of it. Theatre stress is good stress, because theatre is my passion.
