-you can be seen tap dancing off to class, singing "success is swell and success is sweet, but every height has a drop!" at the top of your lungs.

Post When...
You go to see Cyrano at the Alley and freak out at the set.

When you want to physically abuse small children for laughing during Cyarno's death....those little....grrrr.

You correct your theatre substitute in class...she tried telling us The Lion King was Disney's first Broadway musical, that Rent was based on Romeo and Juliet, and that Wicked was an operetta. I was like "Wait, WTF?"

When a girl who sits next to you in History class is thinking about going to see a movie musical that hasn't come out yet and asks you if it's good because she automatically assumes you know the plot (that happened right before Hairspray came out, but I didn't actually know the plot at the time. :D )

When you find yourself criticising classic Christmas carols for having repetitive and meandering lyrics.

When you immediately think of music when you hear the word 'bar', and of theatre buildings when you hear the word 'stage' (eg, Somebody: "We've reached the stage where..." Me: 8-[ ).

I've got a worse one,someone told me that RENT was based on Pirates of Pezance which is an Opera about pirates who get syphilis from some prostitutes in New York.
