Where's the orchestra?
Wasn't this supposed to be a musical?
Here I am
In the balcony,
How the hell could I have missed the overture?

I like the scenery
Even though, I have absolutely no, idea at all,
What is being said, despite the dialogue,
There's the leading man

The movie star who never faced an audience
Where's the orchestra?
After all, this is my big night on the town
My introduction to the theatre crowd
