Yep. It maybe sounds a bit nerdy (or much?), but for me theatre is amazing. Team StarKid has changed my view of theatre. But actually, I do love classic things before. Like Frances Hodgson-Burnett's and Charles Dickens's book and classical music. Then, my dream has increased one, being a theatre kid in University of Michigan. Not because Team StarKid were graduated there, but because it's really a good school for music, theatre, and has a cool sport team named: Wolverines.
#GOBLUE! (it's kind of like a supportive word for Wolverines or University of Michigan).
And this post is about I'm addicted to theatre stuff, so, I'm not gonna discuss the others.
If you don't like theatre, and thought it's a boring thing ever. Well, I thought like that too before. But then I found Team StarKid, and they changed my view. They made an amazing musical of Harry Potter. What you have to do is: watch it, try to watch it even you nearly falling asleep at the first minute. They're not that suck as you thought. I challenged you to watch A Very Potter Musical, then you'll fall in love with them. After that, try to watch another StarKid's work. And then try to watch another musical, it's worth it.
This is list of my favorite musical all-time (might change someday), by a view of a newbie theatre geek: (not in order)
1. Les Miserables
You're gonna love the 'love triangle' story of Cosette, Marius and Eponine (they're so pathetic. just sayin')
Favorite song from the musical: On My Own, I Dreamed a Dream, One Day More, A Heart Full of Love, and Castle on a Cloud.
P.S. Can't wait the movie on December! Starring Anne Hathaway (as Fantine yay!), Hugh Jackman (as Jean Valjean), Samantha Barks (as Eponine), Amanda Seyfriend (as Cosette), Helena Bonham Carter (as Madame Thenardier), and many more
2. The Sound of Music
3. A Very Potter Musical & Sequel.
I learned so many things from this musical, like: Pigfarts is on mars. and have a headmaster named Rumbleroar. He is a lion, who can talk. also The Umbridge Rules: Rule number one, no boys, unless they're cute. Rule number two, no alcohol, unless they're plenty to go all around. Rule number three, no party, unless Umbridge is invited! There are many more quotes that would be so long if I write it all here.
The best part guys, they can made a villain looks totally hot. Oh, there are a shirtless six-pack Voldemort, and Umbridge's hot arms, they're played by the same actor: Joe Walker. My favorite starkid and also my celeb crush. Yum.
So, overall, it was an amazing show from a college students. Don't believe me? Watch it yourself on Team Starkid Youtube Page. I bet you gonna love it, especially when you're a potterhead like me. Remember, they made this musical in budget less than $50. So can you imagine how awesome is it a college group made a musical and got a HUGE success?
Favorite Song from the musical: Going Back to Hogwarts, Not Alone, Granger Danger, Days of Summer, and To Have a Home.
Favorite Song from the musical: Defying Gravity, What is this feeling, The Wizard and I, and many more.
So this is the full list (again, not in particular order). And I'll review it later:
5. West Side Story
6. The Phantom of The Opera
7. Sweeney Todd
8. My Fair Lady
