What’s your favorite song from play 2?
“Brotherhood of Man”

I think Elder Price would be my favorite, but that’s a tough question. They’re all such damn good characters.
What’s your favorite scene from play 5?
I always loved the opening scene.
What’s your favorite lyric from play 8?
“We’re not gonna pay… last year’s rent.”
From play 5, which character are you most like?

No, I cannot.
How many times have you seen play 3?
I lost count…
If you could play anyone from play 6, who would it be?
What’s your favorite song from play 7?

“And then, he’ll launch Joseph Smith torpedoes from his mouth of Christ and turn you into a lesbian!”
Out of all these plays, which one is your absolute favorite?
The Book of Mormon is probably my favorite, at the moment. Hairspray was before that one.

Welcome to my humble Tumblr abode. I thought I’d get this party started with a little introduction.
My name is Derek. I was born and raised in a small, semi-rural community. For as long as I can remember, I have been infatuated with the entertainment business. I think I might have watched SEINFELD in the womb. Anyway, I am a giant sitcom geek. I have obtained over 200 box sets of my favorite TV shows. Please, hold your applause. Some of my favorite sitcoms include: I LOVE LUCY, THE BIG BANG THEORY, FRIENDS, THE COSBY SHOW, THREE’S COMPANY, THE MIDDLE, SOUTH PARK, and much more.
I’m also a big fan of musicals and straight plays. I’ve been going to the theater, off and on, since I was eight years old. The first musical I was obsessed with was PETER PAN. I remember watching the original Mary Martin video cassette over and over again. I now try to go to the theater regularly. I’ve seen a fair share of musicals on Broadway. Some of those include: HAIRSPRAY, NEXT TO NORMAL, THE BOOK OF MORMON, HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING, AVENUE Q, etc.
I am currently studying acting at a university that should remain nameless. I have participated in several productions there. Some of them include: RUMORS, THE LARAMIE PROJECT, STOP KISS, MACBETH, DOG SEES GOD, and A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM. My ultimate goal is to become an actor… I’ll wait for you to stop laughing.
In short, this blog will showcase my absolute obsession with entertainment (hence, the title). I will post reviews, rants, raves, and blurbs about my favorite (and not-so favorite) television shows, movies, and stage productions.
I hope you enjoy!
