So I'm not in love with my theater class that I am taking. It is just a 1010 class so, although it is easy, its very tedious and annoying. Not to mention all the freshman in the class that are driving me nuts. Anyway, this week we finally got to musicals! I thought my teacher was going to just ignore the subject. But she didn't! She actually invited a student who does nothing but study musicals to come and talk about the history behind Broadway and the shows that have appeared there over the years.

If it wasn't obvious by my post was complete TORTURE! I want to go to New York so bad!!!!!! So sitting there listening to the lecture and watching all of the clips from shows was horrible. We talked about shows like Show Boat, Oklahoma, Carousel, Annie Get Your Gun, South Pacific, The King and I, Damn Yankees, Chicago, Cabaret, My Fair Lady, Camelot, West Side Story, The Music Man, Hair, Chorus Line, Gypsy, Company, A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the Forum, Sweeney Todd, Into the Woods, Cats, Phantom, Les Mis, Rent, Spring Awakening, Wicked, Next to Normal....I could go on but you get the point.

Most of the clips we saw were from revivals but there were quite a few with the original cast. It was awesome! The best two days in that class by far. But it just makes me that much more depressed that I still have never been to New York so I decided to set a goal. I will make it to New York and see at least 2 shows on Broadway in the next two years! Anyone want to join me?
