Gayest. Show. Ever.

No. Seriously. GAYEST. SHOW. EVER.

Also: Impossibly exuberant. Unexpectingly touching. Raunchy humor out in full force. Wonderful interaction with the audience. For all that, I am willing to overlook the stereotyping with Cynthia the mail-order bride.

And did I mention it's the gayest show ever?

Tony Sheldon totally killed it as an aging trans woman. Will Swenson and Nick Adams gave great performances as well. (And Nick Adams is such eye candy!)

Both Act I and Act II ended in the ever-glorious "I Will Survive." For encore, the audience sang along with the actors to the same anthem:

I will survive
as long as I know how to love I know I will stay alive
I've got all my life to live, I've got all my love to give
and I'll survive
I will survive!

And I was thinking of the last lines of Queer of Folk—So the Thumpa Thumpa continues. It always will, no matter what happens, no matter who's President. As Our Lady of Disco, the Divine Miss Gloria Gaynor, has always sung to us, "We will survive."

For me, that was truly a transcendental moment.


Les Miserables & The Book of Mormon > How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying & Chicago & Miss Saigon & Priscilla, Queen of the Desert > The Lion King & Wicked & Mary Poppins > Rent & Phantom of the Opera

Also, how did I miss this?

Neil Patrick Harris' 2011 Tony Awards Opening Number: Broadway is not just for gays anymore!




Also, omg, the scene where Nick Adams does a backflip and a split and the audience collectively gasped XD

PNH那个表演不错,看来有空还是应该吧Dr. Horrible从头到尾看一遍。
NPH, not PNH...*slaps self*
I'm actually just not interested in him. I guess his face is not my particular cup of tea....
