I try to not get jealous when Thomas seeks out other muses.
I just want to write something a tenth as perfect as this show.
"Maybe a Grad School Musical? Where Troy Bolton is back in Albuquerque and taking a few classes but mostly working as a waiter at P.F. Chang’s. And then Gabriella comes home for a visit—she and Troy broke up like three years prior—and she’s engaged maybe? So that’s kinda sad. And Troy has been sleeping with Sharpay Evans, because she’s living at home too after a short and depressing stint in Los Angeles, and it’s kind of embarrassing for both of them to admit that they’ve been hooking up, because neither is where they’d planned or hoped they would be at this point. So it’s all about Troy halfheartedly trying to get with Gabriella again, but he’s usually too stoned or whatever to make a move. And then! Oh, right, and then Ryan comes home from New York—he graduated from Juilliard and is living in Astoria and working in catering—with his “roommate” Brad, and so there’s a whole song about that. (“The apartment is small, so there’s only one bed / But it’s platonic! Don’t get ideas in your head.”) And then of course everyone has to deal with Chad Danforth’s death…"
"I’ve been trying stand-up comedy for about five years now. I’m struggling to find my voice."
"What do you mean by ‘voice?”"
"I want to reach the point where it’s me on stage, and not just a bunch of jokes I wrote."
I wrote this for (212)’s November 2013 show. I really stick it to those Buzzfeed and Upworthy websites! Josh is really funny in this as is everyone else! Eddie Dunn does another classic walk-on.

I really wish our website were sponsored by Busted Tees.
I wrote and designed a bunch of realistic love coupons for K-Y.
