Watching Musicals With Gang Members

When musicals and gang members collide! (I’m not talking about West Side Story.)

1. There was a time when I ABSOLUTELY LOATHED musicals.

2. I was young, stupid and too cool for school.

3. I liked acting. Straight acting. Pure drama.

4. But I still hated musicals.

5. Nevertheless, I went to college and decided to pursue a degree in Drama.

6. I came across the first musical that really spoke to me.

7. But still… I thought I was too cool for school.

8. Still, there was something about the singing…

9. …the dancing…

10. …and the acting…

11. …that began to lure me in.

12. When I finally saw my first Broadway musical…

13. MY MIND WAS BLOWN…

14. …and apparently everybody else’s because that show went on to win some Tonys.

15. I LOVED MUSICALS AND I DIDN’T CARE WHO KNEW IT!

16. It was important for me to share this musical passion with everyone back home like my mom…

18. So I showed them everything…

20. Everything…

22. E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G

24. Some were indifferent…

25. Some were confused…

26. Some were downright disgusted.

27. I was frustrated by their inability to understand how amazing musicals were.

28. But at least I got ONE of my friends to like SOME of what I was showing…

29. …and that was good enough for me.
