    Broadway Nerd Mers?

    Hallo! Are there any other mers into Broadway musicals? Personally, right now I'm really into BE MORE CHILL and DEAR EVAN HANSEN with a touch of HEATHERS and HAMILTON. (idk why I did all caps, lol). What shows are your favorites? I might post some fan art later on too...

    Hi, Holly! It seems our interests overlap quite a bit. I'm a huge Theater nerd, and I've actually started a whole Merfolk Theater thread, where we can all nerd out together about Theater. I'm not sure if you are familiar with the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, but I recently played Leaf Coneybear, who was played by Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Mitch in Modern Family) on Broadway, in my high school's production. I too am quite into all the shows you mentioned, especially Be More Chill and Heathers. Did you know that Be More Chill is coming to Off Broadway in the fall, and nearly the entire cast is reprising their roles? I'm quite excited to see it. I'll totally make sure to add you as a friend! I'm sure we'll have lots of fun Theater-related conversations.

    Here's the thread if you want to talk more about Theater!: https://mernetwork.com/index/showthr...Theater-Thread
    And when he opened his mouth, the most beautiful sound came out. A high baritone vibrated throughout the sea, and suddenly all was quiet and harmonious. That is, until the next note.

    Thanks for the link! I'm actually going to see the off-Broadway production of Be more chill in August! Can't wait to see George Salazar, though I'm kinda sad Will Connolly isn't resuming his role...

    I am praying they get Katie Ladner to reprise her role as Jenna Rolan. Not only is she my favorite character in the show, but I love Katie as well. She's so funny, sweet and bubbly, and I loved her in Heathers as well. Also, I love the Smartphone Hour as a song. If they get someone new, I hope they can live up to that, and present an equally funny and enthusiastic performance.

    I'm also really excited to see Will Roland as Jeremy. I've only seen him before playing Jared or a Jared-like character, so I'm wondering if he'll change Jeremy (which would be cool to see a variation of) or if he'll change is acting style to be more like Will Connolly's.

    Did that make sense? Idk

    Lucky! The closest I've gotten to seeing Hamilton is a crappy bootleg online.

    Newsies, anyone? Itís the only one of my favorites that hasnít been mentioned. Thereís a recording of the Broadway production on Netflix that I would highly recommend to any musical theatre enthusiasts.
    Oh, that and 21 Chump Street. Not actually Broadway and itís only like 15 minutes long but itís totally worth listening to. Lin is a god.

    I've listened to the soundtrack for Newsies a few times and watched the movie version. Is it just me, or did they cut songs from the Broadway show?

    Iím pretty sure the movie version actually came first, and they added songs to the Broadway production.

    Interesting, I had no idea. On another note, has anyone else listened to Mean Girls yet? I could only find 4 of the songs, but I'm kinda in love.

    I love Broadway musicals! Some of my favorites are Hamilton, Waitress, In The Heights along with Be More Chill, Heathers, Newsies, Dear Evan Hansen, Wicked (it’s a long list). I’m also a musical theatre nerd/theatre nerd.
