Hi guys! So it’s been a while. A long while. A REALLY REALLY REALLY long while. Like 4 months. I’m sorry, it’s just the end of the school year is SO busy. Well, onwards!
So Imma be talking bout my favorite musicals. Let’s go!
(Right now one of my friends is cheering and the other is face palming. You know who you are.)
Hamilton is a hip-hop/rap musical based off the life of one of America’s founding fathers, ALEXANDER HAMILTON, and goes more in depth into his death (rhymes bruh) which was the duel with AARON BURR (sir).
I absolutely love this. The music is great, it flows so well, and the emotions are all ;agsmdifwpoaecj. It’s a great mix of action, betrayal, romance, heartbreak, and tragedy in one big 2 and 1/2 hour musical. All hail our savior Lin-Manuel Miranda for making this. Do check out the soundtrack.

Wicked is a beautiful musical. It tells the story of the Wonderful Wizard of Oz, but from the perspective of the witches. Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West, and Galinda, Glinda the Good, are actually best friends, rivals, and share the same love interest! It shows how the public’s opinion can give someone a bad reputation.
I got into this musical because we did a couple of songs at school, and I liked them. Now bam! I’m here. The songs are so good, and it completely changed my perspective of the Wonderful Wizard of Oz. (Elphaba, go live a wonderful life with Fiyero) Here is a link to the soundtrack: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL26061CE8F7C59F36
3. DEAR EVAN HANSEN
Last, but not least, Dear Evan Hansen. This takes place in high school. Evan Hansen has social anxiety, and he breaks his arm. His mom tells him to find someone to sign his cast. Evan Hansen also frequently writes letters to himself. One day Connor Murphy signs his cast, but also finds one of Evan’s letters, which mentions his sister, Zoe, who Evan has a crush on. Connor commits suicide, and his parents find the letter. Evan says he and Connor were friends (they really weren’t) and gets caught up in a tangle of lies.
This music tho. It so bootiful. I love this. It’s so relatable. There are so many upbeat songs, which hides the fact of a pretty depressing story. It shows how not everyone is perfect, and what reality does to some people. Here is a link: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLycFKrkRCmebsYLEMlXutryWDH97D258d
