I really enjoyed this show, and I'm glad to see all the (deserved) love it has gotten during awards season. I hope it gets a few wins, and sees a bump in attendance.

I'm particularly glad for them given how much they need a boost. It's funny that a show that's so good, that got the best reviews of the season, and that now has the most Tony nominations has been limping along at the box office. I really hope this helps them turn that around.

It deserves every single one of it's nominations, and I hope it makes a killing on June 8!
Cheyenne Jackson tickled me. AFTER ordering SoMMS a drink but NOT tickling him, and hanging out with Girly in his dressing room (where he DIDN'T tickle her) but BEFORE we got married. To others. And then he tweeted Boobs. He also tweeted he's good friends with some chick on "The Voice" who just happens to be good friends with Tink's ex. And I'm still married. Oh, and this just in: "Pettiness, spite, malice ....Such ugly emotions... So sad." - After Eight, talking about MEEEEEEEE!!! I'm so honored! :-)

If there was an overwhelming message sent this morning, it is that this show is something special and if you didn't see it yet, you're missing out!

I was thrilled by this news as well, and really pleased for Bryce Pinkham, who could have been easily overshadowed by Jefferson Mays, but instead made the role of Monty something different and special.
I was also very pleased for Lauren Worsham, whom I thought was great as Phoebe, but a little disappointed that Lisa O'Hare didn't get a nod for her work as Sibella. Another role, like Pinkham's, that could have been generic, but I thought she really stood out. I loved her voice.

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

I enjoyed it immensely, and I thought everyone was terrific. Jefferson Mays was dazzling, but I think Bryce Pinkham's performance is what made the whole thing work for me. He never soft-pedaled his ruthlessness and yet he maintained a sort of innocent charm.

Mays reminded me--in a very, very good way--of seeing Charles Ludlam in "Irma Vep" back in the day.

I'm so glad you liked it!

(And I'm sure that Jefferson Mays will genuinely appreciate that comparison to the great Charles Ludlam!)

I don't quite know how to describe the tone the show hit--and maintained. It wasn't the sort of hushed solemnity of the film (Alec Guinness notwithstanding), and it didn't have the "we're putting on a show" aspect of "Drood," nor the moral harshness of "Sweeney." At any rate, it worked like gangbusters. Kind of Monty Python meets Edward Gorey.

I love that description!
