Isn't he entitledd to his opinion? how is that different than any of us not liking it?
If we're not having fun, then why are we doing it? These are DISCUSSION boards, not mutual admiration boards. Discussion only occurs when we are willing to hear what others are thinking, regardless of whether it is alignment to our own thoughts.

What a colossal piece of crap! It'll probably run for years.

Wow, bitter much?

He's always come off as a giant ass to me. He was quite obnoxious when American Idiot wasn't as honored as he felt it should have been.

He's having a bad year after he really screwed up his chances on the Voice.

Because no one here has said a bad word about anything all night either on here or twitter....
It wasn't great to be fair I don't want Josh Young shouting at me about Jesus.

Yeah but no one knows or cares who you are. Tony Vincent has a public image to maintain..

Tony who?

Never heard of him before and couldn't care less what he thinks.

Josh Kobak was a better St. Jimmy, anyways.

All I could thank of while watching Tony in American Idiot was the whiny-voiced bully on the Nickelodeon cartoon Doug. Hurt my ears.

Not a fan of the Tony performance of JCS, but really, that's just sour grapes.

Damn, when musical theater people become unhinged they really become some serious butt-hurt queens.
"It's now rather very common to hear people say 'I'm rather offended by that'. As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more than a whine. It has no meaning, no purpose. It has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that'. Well, so f**king what?"--Stephen Fry

Tony Vincent is an asshole. This is a fact he does not try to hide very often.

Really starting to regret my screenname choice from back when I was a far less knowledgeable Broadway fan.

I mean, that JCS performance tonight did suck, and was total WTF in design and execution, but that's no reason to bash it on Twitter as someone who is associated with the show and a (quasi-)public figure.

Also, I think it's really funny that ALW has gone on record as saying this was like his favorite production of JSC ever and Vincent feels "embarrassed" for him.

The title tune is very simply staged, but with some of the dancers at the top of the scaffolding that wasn't on the stage tonight, rendering tonight's performance of the number cheap-looking. I actually, surprisingly, liked this new JCS.

I thought tonight's JCS performance was way better than Tony Vincent's Tony Awards performance a few years back. His Judas looked like he walked out of a back issue of Freshman Magazine. Josh Young has a good look for the role and sang it a bit better than Vincent IMO.

Tony has a right to his opinion and to put it out there just like we all do. I also think he has one of the best voices on broadway ....he also has the confidence to go with it. Some people may use a different word to describe it but I like confidence!!!
I have RSD...but it doesn't have me!!!!

I agree with him. Josh Young has a great voice, but it's not the prop voice for that show or role, and this production is just awful. How he got nominated or the show, I'm not sure.

Yeah, but he was no more wrong for the role than Tony Vincent was.

I don't really care about Tony Vincent, but he was 100% right about Jesus Christ Superstar.

Why was Tom Jones singing?

I definitely don't think he's right about this production. I do agree that he is entitled to his own opinion, however biased it may be since clearly his involvement in the previous revival easily clouds his judgement, but there is a thing called CLASS and Tony clearly has none. Patti and Mandy aren't running around bashing the Evita revival, and lord knows if anyone could get away with it, they could.

That's right! Underscore mother-fu@#ers!
