Musical Theatre Live Blogging

Here’s the current list of musicals for me to live blog (as of March 26, 2017) - requesting a musical more will help move it up the list. This is the current order:

  1. Hamilton (Hamilton Chicago)
  2. Something Rotten
  3. Urinetown
  4. Bonnie and Clyde
  5. Bare a Pop Musical
  6. Bring it On
  7. 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

I’ve also really wanted to watch Miss Saigon recently, so I may fit that in soon (perhaps after hamilton).

If you wish to request a musical, drop it in my ask - As the moderator, I DO have the choice to not live blog a musical if I choose to. So if you send a request in that doesn’t make the list, this is why. I’m sorry if I don’t add your request - That being said, I do encourage anyone to live blog a musical that I do or don’t get to!
