A confession:

Sometimes I rewatch the previous year’s Tony Awards (particularly the 2013 one) because it reminds me why we do this.

I love this community, despite its flaws.

I love this craft, despite its strangeness.

I love these shows, despite some of them being kind of dumb.

I love this city and its passion, despite the fact that it’s exhausting.

I love that real musical theatre (i.e. 8-shows-a-week-musical-theatre, not one-night-only-live-musical-theatre, sorry) is being transmitted into homes throughout America, despite the fact that no one really watches it.

I love that in spite of EVERYTHING, every time the lights go down, my heart fills and beats just a little harder.
