The perturbed looks on my colleagues' faces when I told them I'd seen 3 shows in 3 days was a bit disconcerting!

... because three shows in three days isn't that much and you could have squeezed in even more shows if you had stayed in NY at the appropriate two-show-days???

As a twenty something female it's not just a male problem! Tell most twenty something guys you're into musical theatre and you get a roll of eyes and an expectation that means you want to see 'Dirty Dancing' every time it tours.

Even among my 'theatre' friends it's derided as the 'lesser' art form or that your taste is somehow lacking.

We really need to meet up and sort out who is who ;)

Your plight is so familiar to me although I'm older than you are and, at this point, married.  Not that that helps.  My wife is an ex-actress and will happily go to plays but with musicals I'm on my own.

But there are lots of females on this board who love musicals so, clearly, they're out there.

Maybe Urinetown is your answer - it's so smart and funny and appealing in a broad-based way that I think it could win over even the most confirmed of the musical-allergic.  And of course the heroine of Urinetown is Hope.

Maybe we should just do it.

Set a place and time and just all get together wearing a split name badge stating our Discussion Board name and our real name.
