LEST WE FORGET

"He is often called the father of the modern American musical. He earned the title by experimenting with form and content. He earned it by asking audiences not to sit back and relax but to SIT UP AND TAKE NOTICE." 

Thank you for remembering that audiences are capable of so much more.

Idina sings my pain part II/theatre meaning everything feels dead now 

See each choice you make is a kind of a loss
Each turn that you take and each coin that you toss
You lose all the choices you don’t get to make
You wonder about all the turns you don’t take —

What If? - lyrics by Brian Yorkey music by Tom Kitt

mynameisnotprawn:

Theatre makers, this is it. We have failed at our job. We have failed our audiences. We can no longer enchant or entertain. This is a sad day. RIP theatre.

I am beyond disgusted. It was never meant to be this way. 

Falling in love with yourself first doesn’t make you vain or selfish, it makes you indestructible.

Clearly define the person you want to be. — Who exactly do you want to be? What kind of person do you want to be? What are your personal ideals? Whom do you admire? What are their special traits that you would make your own?

It’s time to stop being vague. If you wish to be an extraordinary person, if you wish to be wise, then you should explicitly identify the kind of person you aspire to become. If you have a daybook, write down who you’re trying to be, so that you can refer to this self-definition. Precisely describe the demeanor you want to adopt so that you may preserve it when you are by yourself or with other people.
