five types of musical love duets
1. “hey, I just met you and I’m ready to die for you”
Examples: “A Heart Full of Love” (Les Misérables), “Helpless” (Hamilton), “Ten Minutes Ago” (Cinderella)
2. “...we’re not actually talking about (thing mentioned in title)”
Examples: “Baptize Me” (The Book of Mormon), “Light My Candle” (Rent), “Small Umbrella in the Rain” (Little Women)
3. “if we talk in hypotheticals, we don’t have to face the magnitude of our true feelings”
Examples: “If I Loved You” (Carousel), “This is Life” (Bandstand), “What Would I Do” (Falsettos)
4. “the world is so messed up, but we have each other”
Examples: “Hey #3/Perfect For You” (Next to Normal), “I Should Tell You” (Rent), “The Last Night of the World” (Miss Saigon), “Only Us” (Dear Evan Hansen),
overlaps significantly with:
5. “it’ll all be over tomorrow, but at least we have today”
Examples: “As Long as You’re Mine” (Wicked), “The Last Night of the World” (Miss Saigon), “Something to Believe in” (Newsies)
BONUS: “this song is totally coming back, but next time, only one person will be singing it” 
Examples: “If I Loved You” (Carousel), “I’ll Cover You” (Rent)

random underappreciated musical theater tropes
some are funny and some are sad and some are just plain weird, but they’re all not talked about enough!
principal starts narrating their life story and ensemble chooses the weirdest parts to echo
“Sardine”
“oooh Steve Blade”
someone sings to animal about wanting to be them
“Good Girl Winnie Foster”
“Green Finch and Linnet Bird”
Tumblr media
long sustained vowel makes it sounds like character is singing something else, but consonant changes the word at the last second
“I’m Alive” (I’m a lie)
“But mine is the way of the Lord” (But mine is the way of the law)
characters temporarily resolve deep-seated issues through tap
“King of New York”
“Turn it Off”
“Bottom’s Gonna Be On Top”
Tumblr media
iconic lines that end with a triumphant “down”
"bring me down”
“breaking down”
“the world turned upside down”
“the world is upside down”
(bonus: “Grantaire, PUT THE BOTTLE DOWN”)
phrases that also mean their exact opposite
“but I swear, someday there'll be/a celebration throughout Oz/that's all to do with me!” 
“I’m a Part of That” (I’m apart of that)
Tumblr media
the second-to-last song is duet with ghost
“What Would I Do?”
“I Am the One”
(but who am I kidding, that whole musical is someone singing with a ghost)
(bonus: “Those You’ve Known,” which is (unfortunately) two ghosts)

what musical theater fans got arrested for
The Book of Mormon: swearing too joyfully in public and disturbing the peace
Chicago: don’t ask unless you want a seven-minute jazz number
Dear Evan Hansen: wrong place at the wrong time (alternatively: accidentally breaking into private property. They just wanted to check out the pretty field framed with trees.)
Falsettos: chopping fruit threateningly
Hamilton: writing so much White House fanfiction that the Secret Service got scared
Heathers: they were just quoting song lyrics, but it was interpreted as a threat
Legally Blonde: their perm was intact
Les Misérables: ...you already know.
Natasha, Pierre, and The Great Comet of 1812: spooking pets, setting off car alarms, and shattering windows while trying to sing “Petersburg”
Newsies: protesting injustice (alternatively: arrested for their own good, as they were attempting the choreography and someone had to stop them)
Next to Normal: pole dancing on a subway
The Phantom of the Opera: swinging from a public chandelier
Rent: testing whether it’s really possible to hack an ATM
Spring Awakening: offending closed-minded adults in positions of power
Waitress: taking the blame for something they didn’t do
Wicked: standing up for their beliefs no matter what

are people born wicked?  or do they have wickedness thrust upon them?
theatre meme: a show you know so well you can say it line for line — wicked

Does anyone notice that Willemijn Verkaik is like the perfect Elphaba?
Tumblr media
(And not by voice, because that’s debatable, even though she slays!)
She looks like her, fits the description of both the book:
Tumblr media
And the iconic 1939 film:
Tumblr media
Though both are described as ugly, just skip that one because Willemijn is fucking beautiful. They’re also described as tall, skinny, with a pointed nose, and obviously green skin. And OH look!: 
Tumblr media
She’s got it all, tall...ish, thin face and physique, her bone structure is on point, and she looks lovely in green.   
She’s also a wonderful actress, she can pull off menacing and intimidating.
Tumblr media
Completely awkward AF.
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
And adorable, just look at her!  LOOK AT HER!
Tumblr media
Are we agreed?
Tumblr media
She is Elphaba. So what I’m getting at is, Willemijn should play Elphaba in the 2019 Wicked movie
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Fuck, look at her!
