“I can be loud, and obnoxious. I enjoy partying, occasionally too much, and I don’t always avoid trouble very well. I nag on my sisters, and my cousin, too, and sometimes I forget that the world doesn’t revolve around me. I think I’m getting better at that. Everything that I am is made up of both my failures and my successes. My attempts and my stumbles. I’ve learned that in order to rise up from failure, and move forward, you have to acknowledge when you’ve failed to begin with[…]Because another thing he has failed at doing is taking my identity, and taking my voice. Those are mine. And with them, I can always turn my failures into strengths. That’s kind of the point, isn’t it?“

*warning Spies are Forever spoilers*

If you haven’t seen Spies are Forever, here’s everything you need to know:

-it’s a musical

-mostly people from Starkid, plus you’ll recognise a few of the cast from Poe Party

-Lauren plays two (2) women which I’m pretty sure is a record for her

-there’s the classic espionage femme fatale BUT SHE DOESN’T GET WITH THE PROTAGONIST AND THEY AGREE TO BE JUST FRIENDS. THAT NEVER HAPPENS PEOPLE

-protag spy dude has two possible female love interests, but he doesn’t get with either of them bc he’s gay

-turns out the real love story was between him and his spy-buddy Owen

-who happens to be Joey Richter so who can blame him

-guys a spy musical that destroys the Bond clichés and has a gay protagonist and manages to treat the female protags as actual characters rather than Bond-guy’s next exploits

-the gay is pretty subtle and a kiss would’ve been nice but hey I’ll take it

-maybe a sequel at some point

-amazing soundtrack

-Lauren says “fuck” a lot
