2. You have a flair for the, eh, dramatic

“Well, when I went to see Book of Mormon on Broadway, it wa-”

It doesn’t matter what anyone else says about your voice. In your car, you are Idina Menzel.

9. And you are HUGELY suspicious of all the film adaptations

10. You have at least one friend who is as crazy about musicals as you are
