I have just found out my boyfriend has never heard of Singin’ in the Rain, or Grease, or basically any musical. I have no idea how to handle this!

@rosemaryorchard Isn’t that a sort of first/second date type of question?

@vanessa Well, I knew that he's not a fan of musicals, but there's that and there's missing an element of popular culture... 🤣

@rosemaryorchard Indeed. There are so many different kinds of musicals, though. Here’s hoping you can reach a compromise and educate him a little. My Dad loved playing Bridge, my Mum was hopeless at it. They were married for over 50 years...

@rosemaryorchard as someone who got introduced to musicals by their partner, I can offer only this advice: start him off with only well produced musicals that you might find pedestrian. If the first musical is a secondary school production of something edgy, you’ll lose him.

@rosemaryorchard Does he like music? My father didn't have a musical bone in his body. He would go to shows and concerts with my mother, but only because that's something she wanted to do.
