Have you had the opportunity to check out Crazy Ex-Girlfriend? No? Are you a fan of musical comedy? Yes? What are you waiting for? That’s a lot of questions. It’s time for some answers… For those who have yet to check it out, the show airs on The CW–or the C-Dub if you’re really cool–Monday nights. And it features a slightly imbalanced lead character who bails on a high paying legal partnership in New York City to chase a fella in California who she dated for two weeks when she was 16 at summer camp. Yep. You’re sold.
7. Rachel Bloom Went to NYU… Not Harvard
In Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Rachel Bloom plays the character of Rebecca Bunch, a former Harvard law student who has made exceptionally good in the real world. She’s so convincing as a former Harvard student, one might believe she actually went there for… something. And she comfortably pokes enough fun at the Ivy League university to believe it’s an homage. It’s not. To set the record perfectly straight, Rachel–the creator, writer and star of this show–went to the prestigious NYU Tisch School of The Arts, which in some ways is the Harvard in the world of performance arts. She studied theater while at university, and also did a lot of sketch writing, which has been parlayed into this bold wonder we now behold: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.
