Straight? Yes. Loves musicals? Hell yes.
And a lame one at that.
Sumofallthings said: "I'm a straight man who loves musical theatre and I'm currently majoring in Theatre at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (I'll be in the first regional production of Urinetown in the spring!) and I have to say it's really just part of the territory.People may think I'm gay but they aren't vocal about it, I think, especially in Madison, people are more accepting of other people. I am not particularly effeminate but I do have a six foot tall Dreamgirls poster in my room.The strangest thing about it is getting hit on by gay men and then breaking the news to them. I usually pull an "I'm flattered, but no thanks." However, if Stephen Sondheim started hitting on me I could suspend my heterosexuality for a little bit. "That's like saying....'I'm not gay but $20. is $20,'.
You should form a support group.
The concept of straight men being the unicorns of musical theatre is probably the gayest thing in the history of gayest things on earth.
You mean guys like Jerome Kern, Irving Berlin, Harold Arlen, George and Ira Gershwin, Kurt Weill, Bertolt Brecht, Richard Rodgers, Oscar Hammerstein, Frank Loesser, Jule Styne, Harold Rome, Burt Bacharach, Sheldon Harnick, Jerry Bock, Alan Jay Lerner, Frederic Loewe, Cy Colman, Marvin Hamlisch, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Lin Manuel Miranda, Robert Lopez, Boulbil and Schonberg?I'm also really glad these straight guys love musical theatre.There'd be a whole lot less musical theatre to love without them.
There is common misconception that straight men can't or don't love musical theaters. Most of Broadway's leading men are straight males, with such a love for musicals, it's pretty great. Also, Benj Pasek is gay.
