The universe doesn’t work the way we were told! When I was nine years old, my family took a trip. To Orlando, Florida. And it was the most… wonderful, most magical place I’d ever seen. And I decided right then and there, “This… is where I want to spend eternity.” My parents said that if I made God proud and I did everything the Church asked, in the latter days, I could have whatever I wanted. So I worked. And I worked. And even when I studied Mormon stories and I thought, “That doesn’t really make sense,” I kept working! Becaue I was told that one day I would get my reward! PLANET ORLANDO! But what do I have now?
This scene right here is one of the reasons that I love this show so much. Because it’s real, and emotional, and you realize that these charachters are relatable, and real, and not the one dimensional caricatures you were expecting. And you’re watching this, and tearing up, because by this scene you’ve seen that this show isn’t just a tirade on religion,or “fuck you God”, or silly jokes. It’s about friendship, and the importance of faith and what happens if you lose it,and you see these charachters go on a journey and it’s beautiful. And yes, the songs are catchy, and the choreography is fantastic, and the lights and sets are beautiful. This show is so much more than what people give it credit for, and I wish they would be more open to giving it a chance so they can see how great it really is.
