Well, I hate that I missed the show this year but the photo coverage looks amazing! For those of you who made it to the sexiest night in theatre: how was it? What did you think of the new venue? How was the layout? What was better than before?

Wasn't there, but I've enjoyed the pictures of James Franco. That ripe ass framed with a black jock strap? Yes please!!

He's so hot. In a dirty kind of way.

Eric Altemus was bare-ly noticeable (not to pun).

The venue was a distinct improvement over the late, lamented Roseland Ballroom. The stage was higher (although there was one runway, not three) so the sight lines were excellent from everywhere.

The show was tightly structured, each act using a song (or songs) by a classic rock performer.

The highlight was the Elvis number, featuring Brandon Rubendahl from Spider-Man, as an Elvis who gyrates out of his clothes.

Lesli Margherita made Patrick Page and Andy Karl take their shorts off. But that's all they took off.

Lawrence Alexander and Charlie Sutton had great chemistry in their duet.

And the hottest guy in the show was Alex Minsky, who lost his leg fighting in Afghanistan

And Alex Ringler was funny in the Queen number, applying some regal discipline to the palace guard, led by the statuesque Mark MacKillop.

Mikst important, though, is that the event raised $1.3 million for Broadway Carees/Equity Fights AIDS and the Phyllis Newman Women's Health Initiative.

Here's the amateur video of the encounter between Bianca Del Rio and JAmes Franco:

Thanks, PalJoey. I was wondering how the new venue was. This is the first year in several that I did not attend.

New venue was great. Quite honestly, I enjoyed it a lot more that Roseland, which since the show was never really packed could feel sparse if you weren't close to the stage.

The changes from the rehearsal to the production were tremendous. The opening, Elvis, and the second aerial bit were probably my favorites - I might also be partial to the ones my friends danced in. Lesli Margherita was my fave of the celebs...just a damn good comic actress.

Got to meet Andrew Rannells & Alan Cumming at the afterparty. Very relaxed, very fun evening.

Thanks for the info! I have seen the show three times and the talent on display is overwhelming. So many insanely talented (and HOT) men and women! To all those onstage and backstage, the designers and artists THANK YOU for what you have created. I am determined to make it back next year.

PJPan, are you saying that Roseland was never packed? It certainly was the last few times I went (including last year).

Not that it wasn't packed (I went the last two years), but that with the larger space of Roseland, there were also more obvious spots of sparseness that I noticed (usually near the back while everyone crowded the front). Either way, I enjoy the hell out of the show no matter where it is!
