Recently my theatre teacher asked me to write down my top 10 favorite musicals so she can update her music library for the summer. Of course I couldn’t pick just 10…instead I gave her a whole page front and back with 2 columns each. I thought I’d give you 4 of those shows!
These aren’t in any type of order…
1. If/Then: A New Musical
If/Then has a very special place in my heart. I met Molly through If/Then, I fell in love with theatre again through If/Then, If/Then was my first Broadway musical and it was my first show where I got to go backstage. It’s always been near and dear to my heart and always will be. The story is amazing and I have looked at life differently since I started following the show. It’s just one of those shows where you listen to it and you just love it. I loved it listening tothe first chord of the Prologue. It was eye opening.
Also I mean…Idina Menzel. ’nuff said.
2. Come From Away
Welcome to the rock where we come from away.
You probably understand about a half of what we say.
They say no mans an island, but an island makes a man.
‘Specially when one comes from Newfoundland
WELCOME TO THE ROCK.
Come From Away us absolutelly breath taking. Its story is beautiful and the actors are amazing. The music makes you feel alive and energized and it takes you through this emotional rollarcoaster that you never really signed up for but you’re totally glad it happened once it’s over.
Jenn Colella is AMAZING and she continues to amaze me.
Oh my gosh this show is so amazing. Please go listen to the soundtrack because it’s AMAZING. I love it and I love the people and STEPHANIE J BLOCK I FEEL IS SO UNDERRATED AND SHES JUST- I LOVE.
