The Most Relatable Character in Musical Theatre
  • Man in Chair:Whenever I feel like this -- blue -- I like to listen to my music.
  • Man in Chair:What kind of society do we live in that we can't discuss the similarities between musical theatre and pornography?
  • Man in Chair:Unless you find dancers intimidating. Which I do, but for reasons which would not be appropriate to this situation.
  • Man in Chair:Try to ignore the lyrics.
  • Man in Chair:But you don't care because you're going to see a Broadway show!
  • Man in Chair:I love this part -- she's having a complete mental breakdown!
  • Man in Chair:Oh, I love it so much! I know it's not a perfect show […] but it does what a musical is supposed to do! It takes you to another world and it gives you a little tune to carry in your head for when you’re feeling blue.

musical alphabetD - Drowsy Chaperone

I know it is not a perfect show, the spit-take scene is lame and the monkey motif is labored, but it does what a musical is supposed to do! It takes you to another world and it gives you a little tune to carry in your head for when you’re feeling blue, you know? As we stumble along on life’s funny journey. As we stumble along into the blue.
