Here’s a list of twenty-five skills, traits, and qualities of personality that are usually well-developed in individuals who complete four years of undergraduate theatre study.

Take special note of them. They are more extensive and important than perhaps you recognize.

Don’t you ever apologize for being an artist. Do not let others question your degree. They NEED you and what you have to offer. Think about it. What do those sad people who work in their cubicles do at the end of the day to lift their spirits? They watch a movie. They read a book. They always go back to the artist. So pursue your career purposefully and vigorously. You owe it to those unhappy people.

when you realize you can actually kinda relate to Cosette…

My relationship with musicals basically just means listening to the soundtrack for days and days and searching through the tag on tumblr, then finally reading up on the storyline on wiki and then search for a bad recording of the show on youtube and never get the chance to see it onstage because I’m very far away from New York or the show has ended years ago and THERE’S NO REVIVAL

Funny girl.
