One of the reasons I love DEH so much is because so many people say how “theatre is an escape from reality” when that’s exactly what DEH is not. It brings you to reality and makes you think of others and why they do the things they do. It makes you want to change your reality for the better. DEH is so genuine in how we think of others and ourselves, I believe it’s one of the most authentic musicals to come to broadway yet.
can we talk about how zoe murphy is a walking aesthetic. like she has indigo streaks in her hair, she plays the guitar, she scribbles stars on the cuffs of her jeans…someone needs to make a zoe aesthetic collage bc everything said in if i could tell her is just a tumblr post. zoe murphy is my aesthetic
Star Wars: Here are three woc that we’re considering for the female lead in the upcoming Han Solo movie
Internet: Cool! But how about some more darker skinned woc too because most woc in blockbuster movies are usually lighter skinned, and darker skinned woc aren’t given as many opportunities or roles. Plus, you could bring in Sana Starros, who knows Han in the Han Solo comics and is a dark skinned woc!
Star Wars (Kathleen Kennedy probably): Got it! Here’s another British brunette white woman instead!
So… Last week, I got to go to NYC for a school field trip over spring break. It was an art field trip which included tickets to a Broadway musical, which means I GOT TO SEE DEAR EVAN HANSEN!!! It was amazing. Words fail to describe it… Anyway, here’s the opening monologue by Evan.
Dear Evan Hansen,
Today’s going to be an amazing day and here’s why: because… because today, all you have to do is just be yourself. But also confident that’s important and interesting and easy to talk to, approachable, but mostly be yourself that the big, like that’s #1 be yourself… just… ummm… just be true to yourself… Also, don’t worry if your hands are gonna get sweaty for no reason and you can’t make it stop no matter what you do because… because they’re not gonna get sweaty so I don’t even know why you’re bringing it up because it’s not going to happen because you’re just “all you have to do is just be yourself”. I’m not even worried about it though, seriously, because it’s not like, it’s, it’s, it’s not gonna be like that time when you had the perfect chance to introduce yourself to Zoe Murphy at the jazz band concert last year when you waited afterwards just to talk to her and tell her how good she was and- and you were going to pretend to be like super casual like you didn’t even know her name like she would introduce herself and then you’d be like “I’m sorry, I didn’t hear you. Chloe? Is that your name? Chloe?” And then she would be like, “No, it’s Zoe. I said Zoe.” And then you’d be like, “Oh, see. I thought you said Chloe because I’m just-I’m very busy with other stuff right now” something. But… you didn’t even end up saying anything to her anyways because you were scared your hands were sweaty. Which they weren’t that sweaty until you started worrying that they were sweaty, which made them sweaty so you put them under the hand dryer in the bathroom, but then they were still sweaty… they were just very warm now as well.
