it takes so long to see what you've been missing

I've been listening to Passing Strange a lot tonight. It's a great musical (like, really fucking great and it should never have closed), and it means a lot to me. It's very raw and emotional, and kind of rips you to shreds by the end, which is what I love about it. I like theatre that really fucks with you, and tears apart any preconceived notions you have of the world.

That's part of the reason why, as an actress, I really like playing disturbed/disturbing characters. I like unnerving the audience, and I feel someone with a mental illness, I can connect with those characters on a certain level which I find emotionally rewarding for some reason.

But yeah. Passing Strange=awesome.
