I appreciate music that features real musicians that play real instruments and they take pride in the art they are making. There’s something to be said for a musician who works hard at what they do to make music that will stand the test of time. Whether it be classical, blues, rock or country genuine human performances still matter.

Yeah. Here’s what musicals taught me:
- Women who can sing well but have exaggerated facial features that would appear distracting on a movie screen can find work if they can really, really overact.
- Plays aren’t as important as musicals because you can’t make money off of a soundtrack. Also, no one buys a “Glengarry Glen Ross” collector cup.
- If source material is too lame or shallow to support a ninety minute film or two hour play it is perfect for a three hour musical.
- If a theatrical experience isn’t presented within a one square mile portion of New York City, it doesn’t count as real theater.
- Musicals can make Spider-Man, gifted athleticism, and U2 all look totally lame.
- Bad lip syncing during a parade on Thanksgiving is apparently amazingly effective marketing.
