what she says: I’m fine 

what she means: I don’t understand why they can’t professionally record broadway shows and release them to the public, there would be no need for bootlegs, broadway fans FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD could watch, it would help expand the theatre community and preserves something that is so beautiful and special to so many people.

Quick Descriptions of Some Musicals

Hamilton: The Founding fuckboys Fathers in the form of highschool drama

Falsettos: Lots of Jews, lots of gay, lots of intense crying

Book of Mormon: Everyone is made fun of in this musical. Everyone.

Rent: Money is difficult, but so is AIDS and being gay

Phantom of the Opera: Mysterious man in a mask swoons you faster than you can say “Christine” no matter what your sexuality is

Newsies: Group of guys (that aren’t mormons) aren’t taking shit from no one (also the New York accent will stick with you, believe it or not)

Dear Evan Hansen: Sad musical about teen angst could never be so relatable

Wicked: Hey remember that one movie that comes on tv every now and then during the holidays that your parents reflect on? Yeah this is before that

School of Rock: Fake teachers and rebellious children who are all surprisingly talented

Hey, reblog/like if anyone out there has watched a boot but is still dying to see the show live, it just doesn’t work out financially, geographically, or timewise (it’s already off Broadway/tour). I’m trying to make a fucking point.

Broadway Shows As Theatre Kids

Hamilton: really talented, woke af, want to hate them but can’t and never will

Lion King: senior, guaranteed a lead every time, universally adored

Matilda: The kid your director brings up from the middle school to play the child parts

Finding Neverland: says they like theatre, but really they only know disney, talks a lot about how messed up the original disney stories are

Something Rotten: actually really good, but always talks about how bad they did

Jersey Boys: the guy who wants to”give theatre a try”, the whole football team comes to see the show bc of him, the soccer team might show up too

Waitress: show mom, always has food, will fight anyone who was mean to her kids

School of Rock: watches the movie versions of the show the director picked and thinks that’s what the show is gonna be, doesn’t pay attention in rehearsal

Fun Home: gets all the female leads and all the guys want her, hella gay, her girlfriend is always at rehearsal

Beautiful: writes their own songs and posts them on youtube, check her out on bandcamp!

Les Miserables: shy kid with the amazing vibrato that no one expects (secretly a rebel)

An American in Paris: took dance since age of 3, not a huge fan of theatre, takes any chance to dance

Fiddler on The Roof: total dad, constant dad jokes, will crush you with a hug

Wicked: gets cast for her voice but can NOT act for the life of her

Here's the beautiful thing about theatre:

It’s always changing. Shows come and go and, as much as that hurts sometimes (Tuck I’m looking at you), it’s also a good thing. Because when one show closes, another opens. You have your staples that will be (or seem to be) there forever, like Phantom and Wicked, and you have those shows that maybe their run isn’t as long as others, but they can impact people in major ways like Newsies and Next to Normal. You have the shows whose legacies live on like Les Mis and you have the shows whose legacy is only beginning, such as Dear Evan Hansen. Theatre is ever expanding and different and growing and I don’t know I’m just having a lot of theatre feels today.

Led Zeppelin are notoriously hesitant to allow their music to be licensed for commercial purposes. Knowing this, Richard Linklater filmed a plea by actor Jack Black in front of 1,000 screaming fans, imploring the band to let the production use the "Immigrant Song” in the movie. The plea worked and the filmed request is included on the DVD.“
