I feel like the happy musicals grow faster than ever before. Before, the number of happy musicals would not grow as fast. Before it would take more than five years to know about that number of musicals. Even today, the musical world is still dominated by happy musicals. I still associate musicals with them. Most musicals are happy and I hope it stays that way for many years to come.

One reason why the happy musicals grows faster is due to the fact that I have a Broadway Pandora Station. It also is due to the fact that I love musicals more than I ever have. I got to see South Pacific and Oklahoma when the movies were leant to my family back in 2014 when I was still at community college and school was cancelled for four days due to snow. Because I am a bigger fan of musicals, I am seeing them more often and I am including movies in this. Most musicals I have seen are musicals I have first seen through their movie adaptation.

As a matter of fact, the happy musicals are better than ever. Thanks to sad musicals like Les Mis and Rent, I noticed it was easier to spot darkness and negative emotions in happy musicals.

Newsies is the newest meaningful musical of my life. I remember while watching the show, the main character, Jack Kelly, goes through some inner conflict starting at the end of act one. I was able to feel sad very innocently during his solo, “Santa Fe”. I remember feeling darkness in Pippin. At least one or two years after seeing the movie, South Pacific, I was able to pick up on heartbreak during “This Nearly Was Mine”. There was a time where I didn’t know what it meant for a musical song to be heartbreaking. Before, the negative emotions could easily be forgotten about, but now, they are stronger than ever.
