I know I know… I said I wouldnt upload a photo of myself on here because I look terrible in 90% of the photos I take. But I dont care because I GOT TO MEET ARTHUR DARVILL. He was so sweet and cute and I love him. Seriously guys go see Once. Its kind of amazing
Anyway heres me and Kayla with Arthur Darvill after getting to see his butt. just sayin ;)
Yeah. This totally happened. I swore I’d never see Once again after Steve Kazee left, but Arthur Darvill being in the show meant that I HAD TO BE THERE. He was great. Guy is a really good character because you can add your own special abilities to it, and as long as it works, it’s fucking awesome!
I’m really worried about not being able to get tickets. Does anyone know how early people get to the theater? Are there crazy lines and people sleeping outside the theater like when N2N first opened?
Lotso aint having any of your bullshit Andrew keenan-bolger
And if they break it, there’s a hoover fixer sucker guy a few streets down!!!
Please tell me I’m not the only one who thought this…
Went to see The Best Man which had John Laroquette, Angela Lansbury, James Earl Jones, and Kerry Butler (among others). It was good, but I don’t know when the last time I saw a show with three acts was.
Then… while waiting for JEJ at the stage door, who should we see walking home from his own theater, but Steve Kazee!!!!!!
So of course there were gratuitous squee’s all night. :-D
I can’t stop listening to this today.
I swear, today will be Tony’s appreciation day, and then I’m done.
I would just like to say that I am incredibly happy that a small, low budget Irish film turned intimate musical was able to beat out a Disney production. It’s like revenge for the fact that The Lion King won over Ragtime in ‘97. I’m so proud of Once for being beautiful and honest, and I’m so happy the Tony voters were able to look past the money they would make to see it.
Also, Audra McDonald is my absolute favorite person in the entire world and her family is so gorgeous and adorable and I wish her and Will would adopt me.
Also, also, I’m so glad that Hugh Jackman was honored for his work with BC/EFA. He really cares so much about the theater and the larger community goals. It makes me really happy to say that I volunteer in the same organization as Hugh Jackman and even though I usually don’t get more than one or two hundred dollars in my bucket when I volunteer, and he got two million, we’re fighting for the same cause.
This play killed all of my feels last night.
IT WAS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!! Seriously. The set, the costumes, THE LIGHTING. I FUCKING LOVE THE LIGHTING FOR THAT SHOW. The way it was orchestrated. Everything about that show is genius. The ending kinda snuck up on me, but I have thought about it and decided it was an acceptable ending. There was also a whole lot of Irish music at the start, and then a whole lot of pop songs throughout. More Irish tunes would have been nice. But seriously. The cast wins. There was a guy dancing with an upright bass! I can’t rave enough about this show.
