Look at all the things you’ve done for me

When did you first get into 2?
In 2008. I was living in LA and I couldnt stop watching the performance from the Tony’s that year. So I finally gave in and downloaded the album. Had it memorized in a week.
How did you get into 3?
I got to see it 2 weeks after it opened on Broadway!!! Well… the second act. haha. My friend already had tickets and I was out there for a surprise visit. Since it was obviously already sold out, I decided to find out whatever show was playing across from his show and go to that. Mine was Chicago…. which I wasn’t too impressed with. But at intermission, I met my friend outside and he was so pumped and happy and excited and just ran passed me shouting “YOU HAVE TO EXPERIENCE THIS SHOW. IM GOING TO TAKE YOUR PLACE IN CHICAGO FOR ACT 2 BECAUSE YOU JUST HAVE TO SEE AT LEAST SOME OF THIS SHOW” - So I went and sat front row center for the second act. Starting off with Lea Michele and Jonathan Groff getting it on pretty much 5 feet in front of my face. And I was speechless from there on out. I was the only one left in the theatre after it ended and cleared out. I couldn’t move. It was….. pure broadway magic.
What is your favourite song by 5?
“Finishing the Hat” :)

What is a good memory concerning 4?
Hmmm. Not too many happy memories concerning this musical. It came into my life at the exact moment that I was going through one of the most difficult breakups of my life. When I first heard “See I’m Smiling” and Cathy breaks down…. I lost it. In terms of a good memory, it would definitely have to be seeing it with Tasha in New York 2 weeks ago :)
