What do I have to do in order to convince those of you that have the Bandstand boot that I’m over here in a corner in tears because I’ve had “Welcome Home” on repeat for the last 17 hours, I’m dehydrated because I can’t stop crying over how much the album reminds me of personal stories from my grandparents, and how seeing these melodies put to life through lighting, dance, and visual effects would mean more to me right now than literally anything.
Honestly. I don’t want this show just to add to my boot library. No. I need this boot because I’m dying to see parts of my own family in these characters and my current financial situation would never allow me to pack up and fly to NYC. As much as I’d love to do that, it’s extremely unrealistic.
