when non-musical theatre people try to analyze musicals and movie musicals… they try to be sooo clever but they’re not. we get it, doug, people in real life don’t burst into song and fall in love so quickly. just let me enjoy patti lupone screaming into my face
So this is asiantheatre’s first Asian American / Pacific Islander heritage month and we thought it would be cool to open up submissions for followers of the blog to talk about their own experiences in the theatre!
You can share your: pictures, videos, stories, etc of you yourself working/performing in the theatre or your experience as a fan!
Harry sighed and walked in through the doors of the theatre. Rehearsals could drag on and on, but nothing was quite as bad as tech week. Luckily for him, tech week was for seventeen whole days! They had already been rehearsing for four days, so they had done a stumble through and worked in the space. It was a Saturday, so they’d be there for seven hours. Nobody could really do anything to change it, as the department at his school had decided to rent out a fairly large space, with nearly a thousand seats for sale. Also, the director, Prof. Sirius Black, was his godfather, so it would be absurd to call in sick.
He was a chorus member in their production of The Little Mermaid. Being a chorus member in the cast of this show meant he was a sea creature, a sailor, a “mer-person”, and a member of the “royal court”. Because of this, he was on stage all the fUCKING TIME. To make matters worse, all of his friends were never near him or off-stage with him. Hermione was Ursula, Ginny played Ariel, Ron was Sebastian, Neville was, surprisingly, Prince Eric, and even the Weasley twins played Scuttle and a gull (nobody was sure who played which). For a big ballroom scene, his partner was Luna Lovegood, which was nice, but that only lasted for around five minutes. For most of the numbers, he was near obnoxious girls or bloody rich prats, like Malfoy or Zabini.
as much as i love the tonys they are a reminder to me that non-musical theatre is so much less marketable so please everyone go support up and coming playwrights and independent theatre companies because they are so so so important and often do not get as much recognition as the big flashy musicals
Look at this. Look at this! Sure, it’s just a short tap dance, but think about what it stands for. This man is a tap dancer, in a time where the media does not focus on tap dancers like it used to. But La La Land came out, a movie musical with tap dancing. And now this man is tap dancing, following his dream, and doing an excellent job at it. The message of La La Land is for all these dreamers to keep dreaming. But not only to dream, but to work for your dream. Skills like these should not be overlooked. So many films these days are just too intense or serious, but with little work for the performance. Where are the hours of dedication? This man sure as the sun did not learn tap dancing that day. He was probably practicing it for years, or weeks at the very least (not this particular number of course, this was improvised). But that’s just the point! He developed his skill to the point where he could improvise and still look good! Slowly, this kind of live talent is shifting back into popularity. But, even with the success of Hamilton, not everyone knows about Lin-Manuel Miranda’s impressive ability for rap improv. Skills like these take time, and the products should be highly praised. It’s a building process. Thank you, La La Land.
Hi! Recently i haven’t had anyone to talk to and i’ve become very lonely so i would really enjoy having someone to talk to. I would only be able to message over the internet but i thought i’d use this to find someone. I’m nonbinary and use they/them pronouns. I love musical theatre, disney movies and cartoons. I love to read and I’m a ravenclaw! i’m an i/enfp and an ambivert. I would really enjoy getting to know someone.
Preferences: i prefer to talk to people of the ages 15-17. any gender as fine as long as you’re not a bigot
