"I Like Musicals"

“It’s 1994. I am a freshman in high school. I have acne, braces, and frizzy hair. I am NOT cool. Not even remotely. I listen to Pearl Jam and Alanis Morissette on a bright yellow Sony Discman that skips every time I move a muscle. But mostly, I use that Discman to listen to musicals. Lots and lots of musicals.

This is a song for anyone who has ever felt uncool, weird, left out or misunderstood. So...this is a song for everyone. Please feel free to substitute the word ‘musicals’ for whatever it is that makes you feel different or other.” 

If you purchase the song from iTunes or CDBaby, all of the proceeds will go to keeping music in our public schools through the Save the Music Foundation.

Anyone unable to donate can download the song for free here.

Laura returns to Broadway, co-starring with Zachary Levi, Gavin Creel and Jane Krakowski in the Roundabout Theatre Company's highly anticipated revival of She Loves Me in February, 2016.
