If You're A Broadway Geek, Here Are 6 Shows You Cannot Miss On Their National Tour This Season

6. "Miss Saigon."


It's becoming the most magical time of the year - new national tours of some of Broadway's best shows are beginning to tour! Here are my five picks of shows I'm extremely excited to be seeing.

1. "Dear Evan Hansen."

"Dear Evan Hansen", headlining former understudy from the Broadway production Ben Levi Ross as Evan Hansen, is the story of a teen with anxiety who creates an out-of-control situation when he fabricates a fake friendship with a teen who committed suicide and becomes viral. Can he keep up the lie, or will he have to confess?

"Dear Evan Hansen" has started their tour in Denver, Colorado, and will be touring until September 2019. There will also be $25 tickets available through the lottery!

2. "Come From Away."

"Come From Away" is the incredible true story of what went on on 9/12/2001 in Newfoundland when all flights were cancelled & ongoing flights were brought to Newfoundland and is an incredible story for all ages and any feminist. There's incredible girl power in this musical in addition to the story. "Come From Away" will be touring in both the US and Canada from October until September 2019. It is definitely not a musical to miss!

3. "Anastasia."

"Anastasia" is a real treat for anyone who was a fan of the 1997 animated movie. Though the animated movie follows Anya as the lost Russian princess who was believed to be a commoner for years after a wizard put a spell on her, the musicals talks more about the Russian revolution at its scariest time, and how that starts her story. "Anastasia" is a great musical for the feminist in its all, and has even started a huge political outreach since the musical had opened on Broadway, and will be touring from October to September 2019.

4. "Hamilton: An American Musical."

This might be the most highly anticipated tour of this generation, as getting tickets to it on Broadway is close to impossible. "Hamilton" is the story of the founding Treasurer on the ten-dollar bill and his life from when he started his political adventures to his death, and every person playing a character in "Hamilton" is a person of color, to show who's representing America today. "Hamilton" has already started their tour, and is currently set to perform until at least 2020 throughout the US and Canada.

5. "Falsettos."

"Falsettos" is the story of an out-of-the-ordinary family living in the 1980s during the AIDS crisis, and the story of a man who divorces his wife after finding he's gay. "Falsettos" is playing in limited cities from February to June 2019, and definitely is not one to miss. If it's not coming to your city, the full pro-shot with the Original Broadway Cast is available on BroadwayHD!

6. "Miss Saigon."

"Miss Saigon" follows the story of recently orphaned 17-year-old Kim who meets American soldier Chris during the Vietnam War and falls in love with him. When he's brought back to America unwillingly, she learns that she's pregnant with his child and tries to go back to America, but when she meets Chris for the first time in 3 years, she learns the hard truth of why he never came back for her. "Miss Saigon" is currently on tour until August 2019 and is for sure not one to miss.

These musicals are all so amazing, I might just go broke trying to see them all!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
