Don’t you love it during musicals when there’s a song where there are several different parts that people sing but then they come together and harmonize and it’s just beautiful?

Not so long ago I wanted to draw fanart but wasn’t sure about what style and amount of details to use, so here are the test ghosts that helped me! (I was almost convinced to use the last one, that’s why is better rendered).
I also had left my blog for years, that’s why the previous content and quality is so different, I was lazy and didn’t want to make another blog, sorry for that xD

Sunday for Sondheim (x) I was not expecting to cry before noon but here we are. We are so lucky to have walked the planet at the same time as this man. Photography by Jenny Anderson

Phantom of the Opera and Newsies take place within a decade of each other (POTO is late 1880s/early 1890s and Newsies is 1899).
Just…let that sink in for a minute.

broadway really makes bank telling the stories of the oppressed and disenfranchised while refusing to make their productions available to people who are members of those opressed and disenfranchised communities.

Forget enemies to lovers, my favorite romantic trope is the two characters who roast each other nonstop from their first interaction before suddenly and reluctantly realizing they’ve fallen in love with the other

Okay I'm probably going to annoy a LOT of people with this, but it's something I feel very strongly about.
The Dear Evan Hansen movie is going to be a disappointment. The trailer was, the casting was, the changes were, and while I'm still going to go see it, I'm not holding my breath that I'm going to love it.
TW: Spoilers for the book and original story, self-harm, suicide
Where is Connor's long hair? It seems like such a small issue on the surface, but I promise I'm not just being salty. One, it's how we're introduced to his character. "Hey, Connor! Love the new hair length, very school-shooter chic." Not only that, but it literally leads into Waving Through a Window, which is arguably the most popular song in the entire show. Connor gets pissed at Jared, which leads Evan to laugh nervously, Connor thinks Evan is laughing at him, he pushes him, and Waving Through a Window immediately begins.
To add onto that, the book gave us more insight into why his long hair is so important, but they got rid of that, too, at least it appears so because this character isn't in the trailer or the cast list. Where is Miguel? Queer representation is so important in this day and age, and without Miguel, Connor's character doesn't really have much depth. Without Miguel, he's just a stereotypical depressed, misunderstood, emo teenager. With Miguel, we understand WHY he's like that.
First of all, Miguel is the reason he keeps his hair long. They're laying on the floor of his room and Miguel mentions that Connor's hair is getting long. Connor gets up to find scissors, assuming he doesn't like it, until he stops him and says something along the lines of, "No, I like it."
Also, Miguel notices Connor's scars. Connor has taken off his bracelets for the first time in awhile, and Miguel notices the burn scars on his arms. Connor tries to brush it off as, y'know, just passing time on a few sleepless nights and randomly coming across a lighter, but Miguel senses it's more than just that and pushes. Connor doesn't answer.
Miguel is the reason Connor has to go to rehab. They find weed in Miguel's locker at the private school they go to. Connor, trying to get Miguel out of trouble, lies and tells them it's his. Connor gets expelled and sent to rehab, and Miguel's mom decides she doesn't want Miguel hanging out with him anymore. Not being able to see Miguel at school or at either of their houses deepens Connor's depression.
Miguel is the REASON Connor commits suicide, which is kinda the point of the musical. And if not the reason, he's at least the point that pushes him over the edge. Connor's at the end of his rope and texts Miguel for the first time in a year or so. He stares at the dots as Miguel types...and then they go away. Connor blocks his number and, well, we know what happens after that.
During the epilogue, when Evan is ReFLeCTiNg, Miguel finds Evan and tells him he thinks it's his fault. If he weren't at work and could have just texted Connor back, if he didn't decide to wait for his break. He's such an important piece to the story and he'd have made the ending less disappointing.
About the casting. Ben Platt's great. He was good for the OBC, he's got a great voice. But he's now so obviously in his late twenties that it's impossible to see him as anything else. This isn't Glee. This is a movie about high school and it's not believable with someone a decade older than his character reprising the role. If anyone should have had their role reprised, it should have been Rachel Bay Jones. She still fits the age range, her voice is amazing, and she just IS Heidi. Nothing against Julianne Moore, but I preferred her as Alma Coin in The Hunger Games.
That's not to say I disliked ALL of the casting decisions. Amandla Stenberg, Nik Dodani, and Amy Adams were all great choices for movie adaptations of Alana, Jared, and Cynthia. I don't know anything about the other cast members, so I can't say I have much of an opinion on them yet.
Smaller changes I have an issue with include Evan's perm (why??), and Larry being Connor's stepfather rather than father. Okay, actually, that's not such a small issue.
I know a lot of people don't like To Break in a Glove, but I do. There's symbolism to it. IT. IS. A. METAPHOR. And making Larry stepdad instead of dad doesn't give it the same emotion. It just doesn't. Stepparents often have difficulty connecting and forming bonds with their spouse's kids. That's all-too common both in film and the real world that it doesn't pull at your heartstrings. In fact, it's expected. A parent feeling distant and having problems connecting with their kids is more emotional because it's not as common. Dad Larry's trying because he's already made mistakes and wants to make them right. Stepdad Larry is trying because he feels obligated to.
Anyway, if you've read this whole thing, I don't know. Have a good rest of your day?
