Audra McDonald - I Could Have Danced All Night

Seth Rudetsky tells her to “sass it up” at the end and unexpectedly changes keys, so Audra gives him the middle finger and proceeds to hit an incredible high D-flat! 

YAAAAAAAAAAAS!!!!

OH MY GOD STOP SAYING THAT DOCTORS SHOULDN’T SAY ‘IT’S A BOY’ OR ‘IT’S A GIRL’ AT BIRTH

IT’S NOT ABOUT ‘FORCING GENDER ROLES ON BABIES’ IT’S ABOUT ENSURING THAT THE CHILD GETS THE BEST CARE POSSIBLE BASED ON THEIR BIOLOGICAL SEX JFC

anyways what else would they say if they can’t announce boy or girl.

"it’s a thing!" 

yeah that’s not gonna work.

"It sure is a baby alright"

I have to share the story of one of my best friend’s birth.

Apparently, when she was born her grandmother was in the room. She’s a monster-in-law type of lady. Overbearing. Woe is me. Nuts.

When she saw the baby, she screamed, “IT’S YOUR BABY, DEE!”

Dee replied, having just given birth, “What did you think it would be, my fire truck?”

So my issue is that when I listen to musical theatre I sometimes start subconsciously lip syncing and like making the facial expressions as though I’m on stage performing whatever I’m listening to on a stage someplace, but really I’m in an airport scaring people with my sudden sex faces and whispers of lyrics that make no fucking sense out of context.

I don’t even have to be listening to it. I do this on my walk to campus. And I think I probably look more like a lunatic than anything else as it basically looks like I’m talking to myself in a fervid manner.

Also George Hearn replaced in Wicked just so his grandkids could come see him in a show that’s appropraite for them and he said he couldn’t wait for them to see the flying monkeys and that’s the cutest thing I swear

I saw him in it before I had any idea of who he was.

His Sweeney Todd literally changed my life.

I wish I could have known then what I was seeing.

First day of classes for my second year of grad school! On the docket for today:
