when you’re sitting in a theatre waiting for a show to start and then you hear the overture begin and the lights start to slowly come up and you get goosebumps and you know that you’re about to witness the beauty that is live theatre for the next two hours and you get excited and emotional and it just reminds you even more of why you love theatre
what she means:
why is broadway merchandise sO DAMN EXPENSIVE. all i want is something to commemorate me seeing a show that i already spent a shitload of money on, but i can't do that bECAUSE EVERYTHING IS TOO EXPENSIVE.
I catch a glimpse of the other side. Laurens leads a soldier's chorus on the other side, my son is on the other side! He's with my mother on the other side! Washington is watching from the other side! Teach me how to say goodbye, rise up, rise up, rise up, Eliza... My love, take your time. I'll see you on the other side.
I'm a general! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeee!
All things he ever lived are left behind. All the fears that ever flickered through his mind, all the sadness that he'd come to own.

I think Dad is angry, Mom, and I do not know what to do... I think he takes out on me what he wants to take out on you. Mama, Mama, Mama! How I wish you were home.

Next to Normal:
Do you wake up in the morning and need help to lift your head? Do you read obituaries and feel jealous of the dead? It's like living on a cliffside, not knowing when you'll dive. Do you know, do you know what it's like to die alive?

Dear Evan Hansen:
I guess I wanted to believe, 'cause if I just believe, then I don't have to see what's really there. No, I'd rather pretend I'm something better than these broken parts. Pretend I'm something other than this mess that I am, 'cause then I don't have to look at it.

What more can I say? How am I to face tomorrow, after being screwed out of today? Tell me what's in store. Yes, I'd beg or steal or borrow if I could hold you for one hour more.
I believe in giving people bootlegs they really want, even if they have nothing to trade, because the whole point of bootlegs is making sure that people who were not able to see their favourite musical for whatever reason get to experience the parts of the show they don’t get from the soundtrack. Bootlegs expand the musical theatre audience to those who live far from New York, or don’t have the money to pay for tickets; people who just want to see their favourite actors or their favourite shows however they can. It is cruel to keep that from someone who so passionately loves musical theatre.
Broadway is all about inclusivity so include those people who are not privileged enough to go to Broadway!

My kink is that thing in super-contemporary musical theatre when a character is singing a solo and the music gets louder and louder and they get to the climax and they SHOUT/BELT SOMETHING REALLY SAD OR IMPACTFUL OR IMPORTANT
and then the music cuts out and you just……. hang there for a sec.
And then it comes back really quietly as they put together the broken pieces of their soul
OR IT ROCKETS INTO INFINITY LIKE OOOOON THE OUTSIDE ALWAYS LOOKIN IN
