Which Broadway Musical Character Are You?

 In San Diego Broadway Shows

Musicals are brought to life by the characters in each act.

But have you ever felt a little bit more connected to a character than you probably should? Well, this is not all that uncommon.

Musicals have an innate ability to relate and portray many of the same emotions and even life experiences that we, the audience, encounter on a day-to-day basis. That’s just one part of the magic of musical theatre, right?

In your wildest fandom, have you ever wondered which musical character to which you relate most closely? Then you’ve come to the right place.

Here, we’ll help you decide which Broadway musical character you are, by identifying some of the traits and experiences that make these popular Broadway characters so iconic.

Young, Scrappy, Hungry

This character is often described as sassy yet seductive, punchy but powerful, smart yet prideful.

If you relate to this Broadway musical character, chances are you have many of these same qualities. This character is a self-made, strong-willed type of person who fought for what they got and ultimately fell victim to his own hubris.

These types of characters are able to charm just about anyone who walks into a room, but if you (somehow) end up on their bad side, it’s likely that you have made an enemy for life.

For better or worse, this character is unwilling to equivocate on their opinion. Does this sound like you? If so, then…

You Are: Alexander Hamilton from Hamilton

Steadfast, Independent, Bright-Eyed Optimist

This is for the people who love to see the bright side of everything. Self described as a cock-eyed optimist, this character is a boldly independent individual who is wary of any “sweep you off your feet” gestures.

Raised with a small-town mentality, this character has a lot to learn about life and love, but will not repent on their optimism for a brighter future. If this sounds a little bit like you, then…

You Are: Nellie Forbush from South Pacific

Optimistic, Welcoming, Blissful

Here we have yet another optimist, only this time it’s a character who refuses to let society dictate what is right and what is wrong.

Instead, this person has an unbiased, unprejudiced view on the world, and deep down she holds the same type of hope and aspiration as anyone with a seemingly out-of-reach dream — all of this despite the character’s strict upbringing.

Sound familiar?

You Are: Tracy Turnblad from Hairspray

Misunderstood, From Another Time

Do you feel like you should have been born in a different generation? Then this is probably your type of character. This type of person is brooding, misunderstood, and generally out of place just about everywhere they go.

If these types of traits fit your mold, then…

You Are: The Monster from Young Frankenstein
