Cats: Furries provide a fun-filled look into an average night out.

Rent: All these people are going to die the minute you leave the theater.

Les Miserables: A man steals a loaf of bread and is chased across France by the most dedicated police officer on the force. Consequently, everyone dies.

My Fair Lady: A valuable life lesson is taught: if you want to make it in life, all you need to do is sacrifice everything, suffer torment from an obsessive linguistics major, and fake an upper-class English accent. Unless you’re a man, and then you just need to explain that you really need money for alcohol. In that case, someone will promptly die and will you their fortune.

Summaries of Musicals
  • The Phantom of the Opera: I am ugly and i kill people but I sing good why will no one love me
  • Into the Woods: Oh you thought you liked fairy tales did you
  • West Side Story: Snapping is intimidating trust me
  • Cats: Cats
  • How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying: Lying and cheating your way to financial success is a good thing as long as the show is a comedy
  • Wicked: Didn't Kermit already sing a song about this
  • Les Miserables: I'm not crying you're crying also France
  • Grease: Yes there was a play before the movie
  • Once: Why are these irish accents so beautiful
  • Urinetown: Words cannot describe

Honestly, people who haven’t watched Daniel Radcliffe in anything other than the Harry Potter movies are doing themselves a disservice. It comes through in his acting that he is choosing movies he really wants to do and is giving it his all.
