    There's A Michael Scott GIF For Every Broadway Show

    Sometimes I'll start a text chain and I don't even know where it's going...

    As many are wont to do in the republic of Pandemica, we find ways of comporting our hobbies from past carefree days with current social distancing guidelines. One such hobby, as previously enjoyed by myself and my best friend, was spending money neither of us really had on our unhealthy obsession with the theatre, namely Broadway.

    Last night, lamenting The Broadway League's (absolutely pragmatic and reasonable) decision to suspend all performances thru the remainder of 2020, the two of us began to relive our most vivid theatrical memories via text...

    ...when, all of a sudden, this happened:

    And, y'all, I was shook; not only at the rapid-fire succession of these messages, but at how each GIF perfectly captured both the shows themselves as well as our experiences attending them.

    So shook, in fact, that I could barely string together a coherent response due to my own hands shaking from laughter.

    Joseph Lezza

    I guess you could say it was I who was overcome with a case of the gigs. A great sequence of them, in fact.

    I suppose we could have had our laugh and ended it there. But, as any self-respecting fan of The Office would know, when someone throws down the Michael Gary Scott gauntlet, you pick it up impulsively and run with it.

    Disclaimer: To be fair, this puppy is more representative of our opinion of the show, but I stand by it. Never before have I had to battle the urge to bail at intermission. And, this is coming from a HUGE fan of the source material.

    Then she returned fire.

    Joseph Lezza

    Then I.

    Joseph Lezza

    Then I again.

    Another disclaimer: OK, we didn't actually wind up attending American Buffalo. But, with its lowest price point of $99, it deserved some shade.

    Then our sabres (sah-brays?) met in the middle.

    Joseph Lezza

    Before we knew it, it had become less of a battle and more of a combined effort to see if there were enough GIFs in existence to turn our conversation into an improver-sation worthy of MGS himself.

    Note: Yes, we saw Harry Potter and the Cursed Child three times. No, we don't care if you find that excessive. Also, yes, technically Sleep No More is not a Broadway show, however you know Michael went, took a mask and pantomimed his way through the next workday.

    And, y'all.

    Joseph Lezza

    It just...

    Joseph Lezza

    Note: This GIF has no caption. Just imagine Michael wildly gesticulating and that's all you need to know.

    ...kept...

    Joseph Lezza

    ...going.

    Joseph Lezza

    Like, you guys.

    Joseph Lezza

    There's no end to them.

    Joseph Lezza

    You think you know.

    Joseph Lezza

    But, you have no idea.

    Joseph Lezza

    You think you've plumbed the depths, but it just goes deeper.

    That's what she said.

    Joseph Lezza

    At one point we had to bring in the refs.

    Joseph Lezza

    Though neither of us has seen a staged production of The Full Monty, we decided to allow it due to the spot-on appropriate inappropriateness.

    But, we kept going.

    Joseph Lezza

    And going.

    Joseph Lezza

    Eventually exhaustion - not deficiency of content, mind you - got the better of us. But, not before I brought down the coup de grâce:

    Joseph Lezza

    Ladies and Gentleman, I give you Michael Scott: the unintentional leading man of the American theatre.
