old theatres

i am a:



🔘massive musical theatre nerd

looking for:



🔘more pro-shots of Broadway musicals with the obc to be made publicly available so that I don’t have to resort to shitty-quality illegal bootlegs

what i say: I’m fine 

what i mean: if the falsettos revival opened on October 27th and closed on January 8th AND there were 8 shows per week, that equates to 104 shows, take out holidays and that probably rounds down to roughly 95 shows. Assuming Anthony Rosenthal was never sick and performed in every single show AND bearing in mind he didn’t need a chaperone for the production as he was on stage the majority of the time, that adds up to roughly 190 hours of stage time in less than 3 months. In those 3 months there was not one large scale bad review of Rosenthal (who’s 12 btw)’s performance. This means that at the age of 12 years old Anthony has proven to be just as stage ready as his trained counterparts and is already building a career for himself, what was I doing at the age of 12 you ask? Probably breaking a limb trying to balance on a fence post. This ALSO provides yet another member of the falsettos cast (and show in general) who was ROBBED of a tony. He!!! Wasn’t!!! Even!!! Nominated!!! I propose we redo the 2017 Tonys only this time we should have A) JUSTICE FOR FALSETTOS and B) A KIDS NOMINATION AWARD BECAUSE OH MY GOD SO MANY TALENTED KIDS ARE BEING BLATANTLY OVERLOOKED AT THE TONYS AND IM DONE WITH IT
