So I’ve managed to revamp my entire theatre blog. However, since not many uses dreamwidth and now that I’ve been posting here since 2012, I hardly post any reviews there.
This got me thinking: I felt like reviewing something for either on the blog or here on my tumblr. I am going through my video list (which hardly gets any updates there as well, since I rarely do trades anymore), and wonder what reviews to do. I’ll even post screencaps as I go along with the review when it comes to the videos.
So yes, which videos, audios or cast recordings do you want me to review?

It’s all just a bunch of hocus pocus!
Inktober day 11: “I burned his mask.”
I know people has different tastes, but isn’t it a bit upsetting to say “I don’t want to listen to ____ because it’s not in English”? I mean, that’s kinda like a silly thing to say, really.
I think people should give Rebecca, Tanz der Vampire, Elisabeth or any foreign language productions of Phantom or Les Mis a chance. There’s so much more to Musical Theatre than just “Wicked”, “Mamma Mia”, “Hedwig and the Angry Inch”, “Grease”, “RENT” or “Next to Normal” (or anything by Stephen Sondheim or Jerry Herman, Lerner & Loewe, George & Ira Gershwin and Rodgers & Hammerstein for the matter) .
In fact, I’d suggest you check out this site, as it has a lot of information on other musicals that aren’t the ones that are popular with the typical Broadway/West End crowd.
If you’re unsure what Elisabeth, Rebecca or Tanz der Vampire’s about, that site is your number one source. There’s even a forum there to talk to other fans around the world if you’re having trouble with anything.
Again, please don’t dismiss International Musicals, just because it wasn’t written in English or that it isn’t a show that’s popular with everyone.

There’s this quote that I love, “the aim is to be independent of the good and bad opinions of other people, and to be free from people who say you’re great, and people who say you’re shit” - is a really happy medium, it’s a good balance there. [x]
