Turning ugly, fuzzy bootleg screenshots into pretty stylized pics thanks to Photoshop.

Parts of this show were really charming - I’m in love with the A Whole New World number.

To the Les Mis and/or West End fandom

I’m going to London in the Summer and I have to pick 4 shows. One’s going to be Matilda. Then a second viewing of Book of Mormon. And then I have to pick 2 more. So…

How’s the current London cast of Les Mis? And what else can you recommend (except Lion King, Wicked and Billy Elliot as I’ve seen those and feel no need to revisit)?

'Les Mis' Cast Performs 'One Day More' in Times Square

Marius and Eponine playing hide and seek behind Mount Enjolras. Now that’s what I call exciting new staging.

When you care for another
So much that the other’s set free.

Flawless performance. Absolutely uncomfortable and chilling. I can’t believe she didn’t get a Tony nomination.

I’m watching Catch Me If You Can for the first time and it’s crap (and this comes from a big fan of the movie), but it makes me eager for the inevitable 2018 stage musical adaptation of Wolf of Wall Street starring Aaron Tveit.

After comic books and TV shows here’s my new top ten of 2013 - stage musicals! I didn’t do one for theater last year. It was fun! I used the Tony eligibility date (April 25th 2013) to select the shows but expanded my choices to off-Broadway as well. I also mixed original shows and revivals.

TOP TEN STAGE MUSICALS OF 2013

1.Pippin
2.The Last Five Years
3.Matilda The Musical
4.A Christmas Story, The Musical
5.Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella
6.Dogfight
7.Into the Woods
8.The Mystery of Edwin Drood
9.Kinky Boots
10.Hands on a Hardbody

Since my holidays needed a bit of cheering up

I went and watched another video of Spring Awakening from my apparently endless collection of Spring Awakening videos. Because, you know, teenage angst, abuse and suicide is what you want for cheering up.

Anyway, it was my first Kyle Riabko.

Kyle Riabko, who emotes like a Dreamworks character.

Now that I’ve seen 5 I think it’s time to play “Rank that Melchior!”

1-Jonathan Groff, obviously. Perfection. Equal parts mean and lovable, juvenile and wise, reckless and oppressed. One of the great performances of musical theater.

2-Matt Doyle, very different take, very soulful, emotional, fragile, almost a different character when played by Matt, and still engrossing. Best The Mirror-Blue Night ever.

3-Federico Marignetti (Italian production), similar to Groff, but plays the awkwardness of a blossoming first love much more sweetly and with much more irony (just like the Italian Wendla). A great performance that is even better during the scenes with Wendla.

4-Kyle Riabko, nice overall, but I felt the acting was a little forced and overdone and he delivered a weak Left Behind. He’s the only Melchior who actually looks like a child though which is a plus. The Bee Movie eyebrows though.

5-Hunter Parrish LOL no. Not a bad actor, but very weak in the vocal department.

There are only 2-3 things that I will never not reblog.

Hair 2009 is one of them.
