My FAVORITE Broadway Actor

This year, due to a shortened season AND the fact Aaron Tveit was so fantastic, he has won the Tony for Best Actor in a Musical. He was the only nominee. Not the only available, but such an overwhelming favorite, there is a Tony Rule about a winner.

If you want to see why, watch this song from Moulin Rouge. Moulin Rouge is over the top, colorful and vast. But this moment, when Aaron - as Christian sings to Karen Olivia - as Sateen, is quiet and wonderful, and then they sing together loud and glorious. Now imagine these two singing the shit out of all these songs, 8 days a week.

And full props to Ms. Olivia, she is about a strong a singer as you will see ever. She is up for Best Actress in a much harder category.

I've seen it twice, luckily it opened very early. Twice with Eddie - one of those times accompanied by Shelly - and I am so glad she got to see it.

Be prepared to fall in love.

  1. I am grateful and envious at the same time. Wish I had some talent that could evoke the emotion they do when they sing.

  2. I'm so glad I got to see it too. Aaron was absolutely magical in it. He deserves the Tony (even if he was the only one nominated in that category). I hope they will be able to re-mount it after this nightmare is ended or at least put on a touring show of it.
