Thank you so much for sharing this with us. I'm getting teary eyed just reading about the joy you got to experience tonight. I can't wait for the world to be safe for live performance again for everyone. I'm so glad you had such a glorious time.

Brittney Johnson, Annaleigh Ashford, Megan Hilty, and Heléne Yorke are my top four. Truly groundbreaking in each of their portrayals.

Please apply that same logic to the n word and realize how misguided this reasoning could be.
From my POV, it's easier and more respectful to everyone (especially the trans community) not to say a slur that was used. Slurs hold significant power and casually usin

Just popping in to say that all of you repeating the T slur (whether in defense of Rainbow or against him) are in the wrong as well. Unless you yourself are trans (I am not), you have no right to use or reclaim that word. Have a little respect. Also, once again, cancel culture does. not. exist. Everyone who believes it does is old as hell, apparently. Randy will become a NYT best seller when his book comes out, unfortunately. This isn't changing anything.
Anyway, BWW, what's good? Y'all

I absolutely don’t believe in cancel culture, and I hope he apologises and we can move on. It beggars belief he didn’t delete them years ago."
Y'all are free to move on, but the thousands of marginalized people's backs he built his racist career on probably wont be able to. Lmao. I for one am not ready to move on after his apology (that he still hasn't issued, despite d

I know you want him to apologize (as said earlier in this message), so this isn't meant to be an attack on you of any kind, but I do want to say: if he's more worried about his career than the pe

"This doesn't offend me so it shouldn't offend you" is literally such a stupid argument. I don't care if any of y'all are still willing to blindly support this very unfunny man, but this behavior has gone unchecked long enough and I'm tired of white people (ESPECIALLY white, physically fit gay men) getting a free "racist past" pass. Randy Rainbow is 39. The eldest of these tweets were written when he was 29 and onward. If by 29 you don't understand

It would just be nice to give the role to someone who doesn't have traditional leading-lady looks, as that's exactly who the character is meant to be and sort of the whole point of the story, including Streisand's original casting in it."
I have never really considered Annalei

Would LOVE to see Annaleigh Ashford or Micaela Diamond as Fanny. Both have everything the role needs, and more.
Corbin Bleu could be a thrilling Eddie Ryan, too. And I think Santino would be a great choice for Nick. Could also see someone like Joshua Henry being a force in that role.

I don't think revivals have to be "necessary" - just like a musical adaption of The Band's Visit wasn't really necessary, but still very good. There's a lot more nuance to it than that, I think. There are plenty of obscure revivals I wish didn't happen because I can think of a list of people better suited for the roles in it. But I don't think that means said revivals I didn't like weren't necessary. Storytelling is n

Really, really, really hoping Heléne Yorke will continue on as Emily. As far as I'm concerned, that was the most inspired casting from reading, and it would be such a shame if she couldn't continue on. I smell big Tony love for that role - and specifically her performance, if she continues on.

That's maybe even the biggest reason why he's miscast. Gideon is cute as hell, don't get me wrong, but he's not a conventional choice for a typical leading man - which is what's so special about Seymour. Seymour is written for the fat, nerdy, balding, big featured, big voiced men who can give a leading performance but never get th

Elton John has never chased stars. Schedules permitting, I fully believe this is intended to be the cast for Broadway.
(Heléne Yorke is coming for that Best Featured Actress in a Musical Tony. Know that, babies.)
