Hamilton – I love Hamilton. I first stumbled upon it because it became popular on Tumblr. There were sooo many gifs and fanart of Hamilton and I was obsessed. Then I heard the music which is incredible, I was hooked on a musical I’ve never seen. I loved everything I had heard about Hamilton, I love Lin Manuel Miranda’s music as well. It sure perfect and special.
Legally Blonde – I love Legally Blonde it was the first musical I went to see and it will always have a special place in my heart. My friend from school was obsessed with this musical and made me watch the films and also watch the musical on Youtube. I went to see a local show of Legally Blonde and it was the best thing I’d ever done. I went to the show with a friend who has been in theatre before and we had so much fun and I enjoyed the show so much. It shows that you can be a woman who’s girly and loves pink and still be a badass no matter what other people think of you.
Little Shop of Horrors – I love Little Shop of Horrors. It was something a very close friend of mine and I used to watch when we were 12 and it was a much happier time for us both then. It reminds me of happier times in my life. As well as this it is a very funny musical with brilliant actors in it.
Rocky Horror Picture Show – I love this musical because it sort of introduced me to musicals as a whole. It also showed me that musicals can be so much more than how they are portrayed in films and seen as very girly. It went against what I thought was the norm and I loved every second of it. Plus who doesn’t love Tim Curry and Richard O’Brien.
Hairspray – I love Hairspray because it’s anti racism and brilliant. The lead is plus sized and female which I find so refreshing. It really spoke to me when I was younger because it taught me about the 60s (roughly but it still did a little as there were real issues in it) and as well as that it shows the underdog and love can conquer hatred and bigotry.
