Hi everyone! I thought this tag would be quite different and interesting because although I do often do tags they aren’t usually on this topic. If you wanted to do this tag please feel free and comment your link so I can read it!!
What was the first musical you ever saw?
I think it was probably Mama Mia or Footloose with my mum and cousin when we were younger.
What was your favourite musical growing up?
I didn’t really have one specific one but I used to like listening to Les Mis with my auntie, and I religiously watch the film adaptation so probably Les Mis.
Were you ever in a musical?
I was in my school productions in year 7 and year 8 which were grease and return to the forbidden planet, but I realised I had no talent for it and I actually did it for the time off school so I stopped.
What was the first musical you saw in the West End
It was Hamilton last summer! It was amazing
If you could be any female character in any musical who would you be?
I have such a long list of people but my main ones would probably be all the queens in Six: The musical, because I think that all of them have incredible songs and stories and I think it would be absolutely incredible to be in an all girl company. Also Angelica from Hamilton because she is such a powerful figure, and Jenna in waitress because I wish I had that talent.
If you could be any male character in any musical who would you be and why?
Probably Aaron Burr from Hamilton because I just want to preform “The room where it happened” because it is iconic!
Favourite musical song to sing in the shower?
Whipped into shape because that song is so fun and upbeat, get down because I think it is such a good song to scream to, defying gravity because no one can hear my awful attempts. I also have a lot more but I don’t want to go too over the top!
Who is your favourite musical theatre actress?
It would definitely be Vicki Manser who was in Bat Out of Hell but is now in Six, she is a swing and she is extremely talented it blows my mind! She is the sweetest person ever and basically an angel because of how inspiring and kind she is! She has covers on youtube if you want to see how incredible she is!
Who is your favourite musical theatre actor?
If I am honest I don’t necessarily have a favourite but I have a lot of love to the men of hamilton because they are all so incredible and so talented!
Favourite film adaptation of a musical?
I love Les Mis because I think it made me so much more into musicals and I can tell I am going to adore the new In the Heights movie that is coming out soon!
Most overrated musical?
Definitely phantom or lion king I don’t know why I just do not like them and do not et the hype
Which musical made you laugh
There are a lot of aspects in Six that make me laugh because it is just so funny, I also think that Cabaret has a lot of funny aspects to it.
What musical made you cry?
Hamilton and Les Mis! Every. Single. Time
Which musicals are you dying to see?
Top of my list are Come from away, Waitress and & Juliet but I have an extremely long list.
All time favourite musical?
Hamilton! Always, because it means a lot to me in more than it just being a show but also as a show it is extremely brilliant and I could not tire of watching it.
Thank you so much for reading! Love, Niamh XXX
