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.

The second act is the reason I have trust issues.
