Post You know you're a theatre geek when.....
(I stole this idea from musicaltheatreaudition.com :D )

You know you're a theatre geek when.....
- You spend you're Saturday's watching bootlegs on youtube
- You yell out 'Wicked!!!' when you see you're friend wearing pink and green
- You check broadway.com and broadwayworld.com every single day
- You hate sports
- You randomly break into song
- Know to say 'the scottish play' instead of 'Macbeth' inside a theatre
- You still hold a grudge against your brother because he refused to see Les Mis when Lea Salonga was in it
- Your annoyed, drama geek cousin asks you if you listen to anything else besides broadway music? (My answer: 'Not really..' :? )
- You read plays in your freetime
- You get excited when you finally got yourself to cry on cue
- You scream at anyone who doesn't know who Sondheim is
- You sing the whole Sweeney Todd album with your cousins
- You listen to ATW podcasts
- You know that thespians have NOTHING to do with lesbians
- You know what POTO, OBC, or OLC mean

When your mom knows to by you theatre tickets for your birthday/Christmas every year.

When you have nedless conversations with people over how "the original stage version" is better than the movie.

When you go on this site/Youtube every chance you get.

When you rent and watch Shakespeare movies for fun.

-when every word said by a teacher during a class put a Musical Theater song in your head

-when your little cousins want to watch High School Musical, and you show her Little Shop of Horrors instead, and they finally leave your house because they hate it, but you still don't want to chante the movie

-when every time your mother ask where should the family go next summer, you answer New York!!

-when you know which theatre every show currently on Broadway is playing in, and several of the past shows that were in that theatre.

-when you consider broadway.com and playbill.com to be "the online bible"

-when you watch youtube videos over and over trying to learn dances from different shows

-when you can relate ANYTHING to some musical, and people have tried to test you w/ random words.

When you watch bootlegs on youtube
When you tell everyone that Anthony Warlow is the GOD of musical theater
When you consider Michael Crawford as the Angel of Music
When you break into song everywhere you go
When you think that CATS and High School Musical are the biggest jokes to ever come tho musical theater
When your the only person who would actually want to go see Equus other then seeing Daniel Radcliffe naked(cause you know it's a very well written play)
You want to meet every actor on broadway

When you start to sing a song off a Broadway show, you realize you know the exact dance moves to it.

When you go to see a musical and you are lip-syncing every word to the songs and dont even know it.

When you go to the last show of a musical and you cry at every scene because you know it wont be there ever again.

When you mess up a solo in front of a class and you get so down on yourself that you dont want to talk for the rest of the day.

When you start to think of places you will want to live or shows you want to be in cause you are just sure that you will be a big broadway star!

When you listen to a recorded song and think "that person could NEVER do that while dancing and acting live on stage every night"

When you hear someone say "Soundtrack for 'such-and-such' musical" you visibly flinch.

Your friends threaten to strangle you if you continue singing/humming/whistling whatever song you have in your head.

You pick up a British accent after teching a show.
And then you continue speaking in it.

When your dad is watching football you ask him when intermission is instead of halftime.

That one makes you REAL popular at a redneck's house on Thanksgiving.

haha at musicaltheatreaudition.com, the thread grew to like 20 pages of this stuff! I go there sometimes :)

- People know you as the loser that knows everything (musical theatre-wise, duh)
- You have talked in depth for hours to someone else about nothing but musicals/performers/etc.
- When you go to a hotel, then the next morning you put on formal wear, and you instinctively think you're seeing a show that day. (happened this morning. i was indeed let down. i was going to a funeral instead.) #-o
- Waiting to know what the spring musical at school is this year is driving you INSANE.
- So is waiting for that cast list.
- You have had total fangirl moments at the stagedoor, despite your gender.
- You tap dance in public, wearing any type of shoe, without being aware of it.
- Adding to that, you can sing all the words in the songs from musicals that you are dancing to in dance class, and all the non-theatre dancers are amazed.
