Musicals and the Artistic Depiction of Revolution: an expansion on the Revolutionaries in Musicals Post by @paperandsong​
Feel free to ignore my thoughts under the cut, lol.
I’ve always been drawn to musicals with a bit of fire and politics (see here for my top 10, of which at least half have this element), but off the bat I’m putting a disclaimer: I am by no means an expert on all of these. The only one I can claim to grasp more than the regular theatre fan on Tumblr is Here Lies Love, which I find problematic in more ways than one. My opinion below is from someone with limited experience. Moving on.
The musical medium paints the abstract concept of passion so excellently. There’s something so strong with the way people on stage express their desire for change through song and dance, and really, there’s not much that can compare. The ones I included here illustrate historical events, and to me, it didn’t really matter whether the revolutionaries were heroes or villains. I looked up to Enjolras as a revolutionary leader much in the same way I respected Gleb Vaganov’s character development and in the same way I admired Kei Kimura for standing up for her beliefs. I just love how much passion shines through each one of them - and though I myself rarely get into a passionate state, I feel as though they rub off on me. I could go on and on forever about how these shows showed me that I should care about more than myself - that everyone’s important, that we all matter, and that we can do something to bring about change. And this sentiment, more than anything, is probably why I hold revolutions in musicals so dear to my heart.
I could probably ramble on but I’ll stop here. To anyone who’s reach here, thank you for reading my rambles, ily /p

Watching the news all day, some of us are starting to lose it, so these people decided to have a big cookout for the whole community. Just trying to get our minds off everything.
