By all means, they still have a ways to go till opening night but I have to say, I wasn't impressed with Santino Fontana in that clip. Anyone who know's his other work was this just a bad clip or what?
Edit: Anyone else notice they've changed her tiara since the parade?

They sound fine, he's just not that handsome. Traditional or otherwise.

Well there is that too.

I think he's supremely talented and totally doable.

I think Santino Fontana is H.O.T. HOT. But maybe that's just me.

^ I agree with both. Very talented and handsome to me.

(I think I actually may have fallen in love with him during SONS OF THE PROPHET.)

He's cute as hell on Submissions Only. I can't stand his character, though.

I think it looks better now. As I mentioned last month the one that Laura wore at the parade looked more like one that the White Witch wears in the 'Narnia' books and film instead of one that a princess would wear.

I still think the dress looks cheap, but it seems they are noting things that need to be changed.

BroomstickBoy, the only issue I have with Aaron is how he stayed with Selina. Hopefully, that has been nipped in the bud.
Submissions Only was what first got me to be a Fontana fan.

He (and Osnes) both sound lovely in that clip. I think he definitely has his own kind of magnetism. Everything I've seen from this production so far has been so charming.
Definitely my most anticipated of the season.

Santino makes my heart melt. So cute!

I loved it! Osnes and Fontana both sounded wonderful. I am definitely looking forward to this the most of any show this season!

I thought the clip was wonderful. In EARNEST, Fontana projected a boyish handsomeness, so he will do just fine in the looks department, I think.

shes is flawless, voice and beauty wise in my humble opinion, he has a great voice as well but i dont know, she looks way out of his league, kinda like beauty and the beast.

Yikes, so underwhelming.... this show is going to close right away.
Posted by Magalamb 2012-12-19 13:11:20
She was great, costumes were cheesy. I love him on Submissions Only but he was underwhelming vocally here... and as someone who was obsessed with this show as a kid, I know that it's not really that good. The best version was the insane/bizarre Brandy and Whitney version, the other two, despite the divine Julie Andrews in one and Ginger Rodgers as a Queen in the other, were dull, dull, dull.
I'll still go see it, though. Childhood memories and whatnot.

Fantastic!!!! Now you lunatics don't even wait for first preview to post your all knowing critiques? How disgusting.

He was adorable in Earnest. I'm not quite so sure that the very clean cut prince thing is working for me.
Posted by julesboogie 2012-12-19 22:24:19
He was my favorite part of Earnest. And i think he'll make a great prince. He also noted they are doing it a different way, so maybe he doesnt need to be blindingly/classically handsome in this version. Still a good looking guy tho.
