The Diva loves musicals.
Her first musical was the Sound of Music, which she loves. She could watch/listen to it over and over again. I like Sound of Music, but there is a point when I just can't watch it or listen to the music anymore. I have come close to reaching this point. Each time I come close, the Diva finds something new to enjoy.
After Sound of Music, Mary Poppins entered the picture.
There was a brief time spent with Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, but we lost the DVD (honestly, I can't find it and didn't intentionally lose it)
The Diva sings songs from both Julie Andrews movies - and does it, I think, without realizing she is doing it. The music has become a part of her personality - the sound track of her mind.
And now it is Grease.
"I don't want to watch that."
"Seriously? It is a musical."
"No, I am going to go and play Polly Pockets."
However, there is only so much Polly one can play and the draw of a "musical" is just too strong for her to resist.
When she returns to school in September she will be singing about Summer Nights, Hopelessly Devoted to Math, telling the boys to "shape up cuz [She] Needs a Man to carry her lunch tray,and entertaining her music teacher with the gibberish of We Belong Together.
And I will be seeking a new musical and anticipating the beginning of Nutcracker rehersals and the sounds of Tchaikovsky.
