A reminder of the rules of Fridge Brilliance:

This is a personal moment for the viewer, but follows the same rules as normal pages, meaning no first person or natter. If you start off with "This Troper", really, you have no excuse. We're going to hit you on the head.

This revelation can come from anywhere, even from this very page.

Also, this page is of a generally positive nature, and a Fridge Brilliance does not have to be Word of God. In fact, it usually isn't, and the viewer might be putting more thought into it than the creator ever did. This is not a place for personal commentary on another's remark or arguing without adding a Fridge Brilliance comment of your own.

On to the theatre...

  • The first time hearing "You Could Drive A Person Crazy" from the musical Company (Sondheim), it was ripped out of context and found it weird and annoying (why were they singing so fast? and what was with the "do-do-do"s?). After one hears some of the Andrews Sisters songs Sondheim was pastiching, and understanding the lyrics and the place the song has in the show, there's a realization on what a brilliant piece of work it would be: using a bright, cheerful style of music, previously associated with inane, dippy lyrics, to deliver a scathing and rather bitter smackdown to an unresponsive boyfriend.
