Today, I’m going to share my thoughts on ” fake musical theatre fans ” & ” basic broadway shows ”
SPOILER ALERT: There’s no such thing as a fake fan, it’s okay to like popular shows, and everyone is welcome in the #TheatreThursdayFam ???

If you’re new to my channel, HI! I’m Katherine and I put out a new theatre related video on every #TheatreThursday plus bonus uploads throughout the week! My videos cover a variety of topics include musical theatre / acting advice, theatre kid lifestyle, performance reviews, and general broadway geekery. Additionally, I make usual Youtuber videos, but with a slight theatre-y twist.
Today, I’m going to be discussing a few popular shows that often get titled as “basic”. I get asked my opinion on them and occasionally their respective fan bases. So today, I wanted to address everything together. Like I mention in the video, I think it’s fine to enjoy popular shows– heck, a few shows I love are often described as “basic”. Liking something popular doesn’t make you any less legit and not knowing everything about a specific topic doesn’t make you a fake fan.
In my opinion, I don’t think there is any such thing as a fake fan. If you like something, regardless how much or how little you know about it, you’re a fan. I think this phrase is really used to intimidate and scare away people who might be newer to the community. WHICH IS SO DUMB. THEATRE IS GREAT. EVERYONE CAN ENJOY IT.
Okay, thanks for letting me talk about this. I’ve had a lot of feelings on this topic, and I hope you enjoy the video.
Also, I really aggressively ate a sandwich while writing this.
