Wonderful Characteristics in a Musical Character

I decided to make another list post. Today I will do a list of musical characteristics that are wonderful to see in a musical character.

  1. Optimistic
  2. Brave
  3. Strong
  4. Complex- this gives more believability to a musical character
  5. Compassionate
  6. Kind
  7. Sweet
  8. Beautiful Relationships- this may not be a characteristic but works. Relationships like Elphaba and Glinda, Jack and Crutchie, All the Newsies, Friends of the ABC, Wonderful Couples, etc play a role
  9. Smart
  10. Determined
  11. Unique
  12. Big-hearted
  13. Flawed- this sounds odd, but a character with flaws feels more realistic. One flaw I have found is implusive

What are some wonderful characteristics you have in a musical character?

  1. This is a really great list! There are a lot of good characteristics that can make up a character that one becomes attached to over time!


    • I was aware growing up that I prefer complex characters over simple characters. The complex characters are so much real especially when the have flaws. Complex, brave, and strong characters are some of the best
