BOOK OF MORMON SAN JOSE TOUR?

WAS AMAZING. HERE’S SOME HIGHLIGHTS (IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER):

-mckinley and price touched noses so much. pj’s mckinley was a nervous wreck and trying his best to turn it off and you could basically see that every time he was on stage (it was no nic rouleau and stephen ashfield, but it definitely was something)

-gabe gibb’s price was so done with everything. you could tell from the start he knew he wouldn’t get what he wanted and his inner anxiety™ was showing
-adding on to this: when he said “y’know what guys? fuck him.” he said it without hesitation and no pausing. he just rolled his eyes to the side but right after he said it he jumped and gasped like “uh-oh”

-YOU AND ME BUT MOSTLY ME?? AMAZING. GABE GIBBS HAS THE VOICE OF AN ANGEL AND IS NO DOUBT MY FAVORITE PRICE
-HIS BELTING IN ORLANDO REPRISE AND I BELIEVE WAS LIFE-CHANGING AS WELL

-MYHA’LA HERROLD WAS ALSO MY FAVORITE NABULUNGI?? HER VOICE WAS  S O  P O W E R F U L  AND AMAZING AND HASA DIGA EEBOWAI REPRISE WAS ABSOLUTELY HEARTBREAKING AND WHILE EVERYONE WAS LAUGHING AT THE “HASA DIGA EEBOWAI” I WAS SOBBING OVER THE PURE  E M O T I O N  IN HER VOICE

-turn it off was flamboyantly amazing as you could expect. his “find the box that’s gay and crush it” was the best thing ever. it was so obvious he did a terrible job at turning it off

-words cannot express how funny spooky mormon hell dream was

-baptize me was the audience’s favorite and there wasn’t a second where they weren’t laughing their asses off. i was too tbh

-conner’s cunningham was so bubbling and jumpy it was so fun to watch! 

-the final “i still have maggots in my scrotum” made the audience clap even harder than they already were and i couldn’t hear a thing. it was the best

-when the general presented himself as elder butt-fucking-naked he stared straight at my squad and i’s direction and we got to wave back,, i felt so special

-ONE LAST THING!! mckinley’s “click, pow, push it down!” WAS SO SO S O AMAZING HNJGDISJFKN. HOW WONDERFUL


time for the ~~stagedoor moments~~

-the actors were wayyy nicer than the hamilton actors and stayed around to chat for a while. they didn’t care that i was 5″1 and we literally just started up a normal conversation. they were really nice while signing our playbills/posters and stuff too!!

-they complimented my squad’s outfits!! and they said that my mckinley costume was spot-on B)) all of them literally said “good job” and when i pointed out that they did all the work the elder church actor deadass said “pssh, i hardly remember any of it. you guys look cuter anyway”

-I gave them my art and they were all super nice about it!! most of them recognized me from instagram and they thought i was a lot older than 13 :,D

-Myha’la (nabulungi actor) saw my art and literally squealed and hugged me!! she said she was gonna keep it forever and even though she was about to leave she stayed to chat for a bit. even though she couldn’t sign our stuff she was extremely nice and i love her. (she also reposted my art on instagram!! i think that’s way better than a signature honestly!)

-at the end i went up to the chuch actor to ask if mcpriceley is real. at first he thought we were talking about the actors, but when we specified characters, he said it was. that’s right guys. conFIRMED BY A CAST MEMBER (my friend got the whole thing on video too)

and yeah, that’s it! it was far more enjoyable than hamilton and i loved every bit of it. the actors also treated us as the elders we dressed up as and so did the people around us; it was surreal.

LOOK INTO MY EYES AND LOOK INTO MY MOUTH

Some of the best things I’ve heard in Heathers rehearsal so far:

  • “Oh no! My shirt, where’d it go?” followed by really slow and awkward finger guns
  • “Free pizza, and we don’t even have to buy it a pussy!”
  • “Those stupid tree thumpers”
  • *dramatically pirouettes and leaps in* “BIG SWORDFIGHT IN HER MOUTHHH”
  • “Aww that seems like a relationship that would last.” “Yeah until one of them blows up” “I guess you could say their love is….. explosive”
  • *Our choreographer screaming like one of those sheep used in parodies back in vintage youtube days whenever she gets frustrated or needs to get people’s attention.*
  • “So you’re going to do a Jesus lift” “A WHAT” “Just put your arms out and they’ll lift you like you’re Jesus resurrecting from the cross”
  • “Welcome to Newsies on steroids.”
  • “Be the closeted gay we all need.”
  • “The first step to any good plan is murder.”
  • “How much bitch is enough bitch though?”
  • “Imagine having to explain to someone like ““oh how’d you break your tailbone?” ““Oh I booty-popped too hard.”” 
  • “When we go off to makeover Veronica, can she still have the monocle, but, hear me out, it’s now bedazzled.”
  • “I have to check the historical accuracy of bedazzling in the ‘80s.”
  • “Okay, but what if we made it gay?”
  • “COSTUME NOTE: SOMEONE MAKE RAM PARTY SLIPPERS!” “What if they’re like bunny slippers, but with tiny party hats?!”
  • “This is Ram, he’s not very nice, but somehow my best friend still wants to fuck him.”
  • “Your whole bio better be about how much you love and respect women or else I can’t help you when your ass is being kicked.”
  • “I paired you guys together because you say he’s your sort of boyfriend later.” *Kurt proceeds to emark in various sexual dance endeavors with multiple other women* “That’s where the sort of comes into play….”
  • “SHUT UP HEATHER” *bursts out crying*
  • Our original Chandler dropped out so our original Duke got promoted to her role and just looks at me and says “Oh my god this is the most Heather Duke thing that has ever happened to me”
  • “That’s a school cheer?!?!”
  • “Real question: WHO HAS A FUCKING LOCK ON THEIR CLOSET?”
  • “What if when she makes you spit up the pills, your wig flies off?” “Oh no you’ve discovered the real reason behind my crisis, I AM NOT A NATURAL BLONDE”
  • “Maybe he should take up knitting or something as a hobby rather than therapedic murder.”
  • “The saddest thing is that’s not even 3rd base”
  • “Veronica, you’re soaking wet!” *cue our assistant stage manager loosing her shit*
  • “My character description is just internal screaming.”
  • “Who needs a dance partner when you have weed?”
  • “I feel bad having to ask but was that supposed to be a dick joke?”
  • “Do I get extra points if one of the pills hits someone in the face?”
  • “I can’t remember the lyrics but I’m pretty sure I’m still gay”
  • “Why didn’t they just throw the bomb and run or something, like why are they so determined to die?” 
  • *recites Blue Reprise as demonic slam poetry because we didn’t have rehearsal tracks yet*  
  • “Veronica, it’s not a phase. I’m just naturally a slightly psychotic bag of angst with great hair.”
  • *music director teaching us Blue* ”They’ll curl up on your face. And purr like-” *slowly looks up from music and proceeds to put his head in his hands* “There’s moments that I evaluate my life and this is definitely one of them.”

And we’re still about 3 weeks from tech week

  • George Lucas: if you make gay stuff about my characters I'll sue you
  • *3 decades later*
  • George Lucas: *sells Star Wars*
  • Oscar Isaac: Poe is in love with Finn
  • Carrie Fisher: Obi-Wan Kenobi is bisexual
  • Mark Hamill: Luke's sexuality is never addressed in the movies, also he could be trans and even if he isn't he supports trans people because all Jedi do
