Watching Musicals With Gang Members

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

Posted on

There was a time when I ABSOLUTELY LOATHED musicals.

I was young, stupid and too cool for school.

I liked acting. Straight acting. Pure drama.

But I still hated musicals.

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

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

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

Still, there was something about the singing...

...the dancing...

...and the acting...

...that began to lure me in.

When I finally saw my first Broadway musical...

MY MIND WAS BLOWN...

...and apparently everybody else's because that show went on to win some Tonys.

I LOVED MUSICALS AND I DIDN'T CARE WHO KNEW IT!

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

...and my old friends…

So I showed them everything...

Everything...

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

Some were indifferent...

Some were confused...

Some were downright disgusted.

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

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

...and that was good enough for me.
