But you are NOT waiting in that Autograph Line... even if Bernadette Peters and Jeremy Jordan are signing together in the same hour like they were last year.

20. This twitter account has made you scream on more than one occasion.

Follow them for more perfect, wonderful, tweets that will either make your day or ruin it (depending on which of your favorite understudies will be in which roles and whether or not you'll be there to witness it)

Bonus points if you can still remember which exact performance it was and what memories were being made backstage before a scene began.

And why shouldn't it be? It's not like you WAITED HOURS FOR THAT PIC WITH IDINA MENZEL or anything...

Let's just say waiters aren't very happy people when you and a few people in matching shirts come in and ask for a table for about 30 or so people.

6. You could go to Disney World just to see the shows in Hollywood Studios.


Nothing beats eating a Mickey Premium and watching Ariel or Belle completely #nailit before getting on Tower of Terror.

1. You realize that even though what you do is hard work, it's totally worth it and you wouldn't trade it for anything.
