I recently saw PIPPIN ON BROADWAY and wanted to share some important lessons I learned.
1. I should workout more
Kyle Dean Massey was shirtless for 35% of the musical. I ate a Schmackary’s cookie beforehand and regretted it. #truth
2. Charlotte d’Amboise is a cougar
Put a red wig on her and it’s like looking at Vanessa Williams II: Simba’s Pride
3. ACROBATICS IS F***ING HARD!!!
I grew up with DUMBO. I didn’t know acrobatics could be… artistic.
4. Rumtum Tugger is a Curious King
Terrence Mann plays a King who rides a unicycle, throws knives, and gets resurrected (on stage). #CuriousCat #IAmWarningYouJavert #MrsSantaClaus
5. Lavender soaps and lotions = Love

“NOW ON CLEARANCE FOR VALENTINE’S DAY! LAVENDER SOAPS & LOTIONS!”
6. The gates! The gates! The gates! The gates of heaven await!
They promised at the top of Act 2. #lolz #noreally
7. No one likes a King
8. How to make an Entrance
Video available at: http://youtube.com/watch?v=kpNKfFAnUO4.
Skip to 2:45. I will require a curtain to be raised before me whenever I enter a room now. #halfkidding
9. WHERE THAT SONG CAME FROM!
Video available at: http://youtube.com/watch?v=uA8WVGvykPo.
Take a shot every time you heard this in Middle & High School
10. The Broadway Musical Kristen Wiig Should Be Cast In
Cast her as Pippin. I don’t care- the girl can do Fosse already. #snl #wiig4broadway
11. I need to stop eating cookies
Because people who look like this DON’T EAT COOKIES
12. I need a hair stylist
13. Designing Women on Broadway
Video available at: http://youtube.com/watch?v=jQdjbIqmhUY.
Annie Potts plays the Grandma AND LOOKS EXACTLY THE SAME. #Ghostbusters #AnyDayNow #GCB #LifetimeTV #MaryJo

14. Who my Future Husband Is
Meet Kyle Dean Massey. Google image search “Kyle Dean Massey + Shirtless”. Trust me on this.
15. Say I’m Sorry with a Dog
“Gay Men w/ Dogs” needs to be a Tumblr if it isn’t already
