Dammit, why does In the Heights always perform "When You're Home?" Perform 96,000, Blackout, or Carnaval Del Barrio, dammit!
rissa_rose 12th-Sep-2008 01:16 am (UTC)
i'll second 96,000. their tony performance was hot.
shangri__la 12th-Sep-2008 01:25 am (UTC)
YES. That performance had me dying to see the show.



This show is awesome and it's baffling why they don't perform the fabulous songs.

I didn't think Carnaval Del Barrio was that great until I saw the show... and now I could just watch that scene over and over again, haha.

They were filming Spring Awakening's b-roll footage on Wednesday afternoon, and my friend in group sales got me in as one of the onstage audience members. It was pretty awesome. In between numbers, the cast just kind of milled around with us and chatted. They are all so cute! And young.

rissa_rose 12th-Sep-2008 01:23 am (UTC)

i'd gladly put up with bailey hanks' shrieking for some of the shows performing.

godsy 12th-Sep-2008 02:09 am (UTC)
idgi, I thought ITH performed the Benny/Nina songs for convenience but all these other guys are always doing the insane group routines wth wth :(((
cupkate 12th-Sep-2008 01:32 am (UTC)
I love Cheyenne Jackson. Hometown hero :') :') :')
I remember his summer theater days.
rissa_rose 12th-Sep-2008 01:34 am (UTC)
omg, i'm jealous.

i adore him.
cupkate 12th-Sep-2008 01:36 am (UTC)
He was the only Real Actor around, so he was basically the lead in every musical ever. My mom and I were his number 1 fans. I was probably 12 years old-ish and we had season tickets. :D
I have many a Cheyenne Jackson autograph from little tiny shows. When we saw him as Elvis in the Thanksgiving Day parade, we screamed. lol
elusiveemily 12th-Sep-2008 01:33 am (UTC)
WTF Brand New You? Seriously...sigh.
rissa_rose 12th-Sep-2008 01:34 am (UTC)
i know nothing about the show... bad number?
dreamoftheday 12th-Sep-2008 12:27 pm (UTC)
It's not too bad but I'd rather they do the opening number because that's adorable.
gimmeachipwich 12th-Sep-2008 01:35 am (UTC)
