spring queue

So I asked my friend what she thought these musicals were about based on their names...
  • <Spring Awakening> An inspirational story about a woman finding herself after her long lasting relationship has ended. Or it's about a cute bunny.
  • <RENT> A guy becomes a stripper to pay his rent money that's due in two days and he ends up loving his job.
  • <In the Heights> Lots of drugs and tall buildings.
  • <Waitress> A waitress lady who works at a five star restaurant who also does little favors (wink wonk wink wonk wink wonk) for special people, but loses her job.
  • <Next to Normal> This fukin cray girl who's an outcast has these even more cray telekinesis powers and idek shes cray like Carrie.
  • <Cabaret> Half naked people dancing while a man says cabaret in a French accent.
  • <Pippin> A young and possibly sexually confused child.
