After I saw him in The Cripple of Inishmaan, I anxiously waited to meet Daniel Radcliffe at the stage door so I could get this card signed. Because I was toward the back of the crowd, I didn’t think Daniel would even notice the card, but I was very wrong. As soon as he caught sight of the card, Daniel started laughing. He then took the card and explained how he had wanted to sign one of the cards ever since he had found out about it and signed it with my Sharpie. Then he THANKED me for bringing it and took my phone and took a selfie with me. Needless to say, I was very happy.


So for those wondering who Colton is and why everyone’s freaking out about him, here’s a video talking about his experience with theatre. He’s so, so sweet and has dealt with a lot and he’s! Only! 21! How amazing is that that this incredibly genuine, goofy, talented 21-year-old got to go on as Evan Hansen in Dear Evan Hansen and make his Broadway debut today? Basically, everyone SHOULD freak out about Colton Ryan getting to go on today and how incredible he must be feeling right now.

alright im so done with all your pointless, shitty hate.
in the end, all of these shows (whether having a nom/win or not) are somehow leaving their mark on broadway or on the viewers who come see them.

the tonys are a time to celebrate broadway. please stop trying to tear this celebration down with your hate.
im sure that the actors who got snubbed wouldnt support all this shit you guys are flinging.
let people be happy and enjoy their night.
just be happy that, awarded or not, your favorite show exists and has made a mark.

Jayne Mansfield photographed on stage for the Broadway play ‘Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?’ (1955-1956)

Jayne’s agent arranged to her the test for the Broadway play 'Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?’ - a comedy satire about Hollywood. Jayne was not happy about it - she said “I want to be a film star, not a stage star”. But he tried to convince her, and she decided to give it a try. On the day of the test, Jayne exaggerated her acting, with hopes that they would dislike her - ironically, it was exactly what they wanted for the character, a over the top Hollywood Blonde Bombshell - Jayne got the part; and she was determined to do a good job. The play opened at the Belasco Theatre on Broadway on 13 October, 1955. A woman who worked with the costumes fitting stated: “She was always reading her lines, she was working really hard and was never temperamental“. Her co-star on the play, Orson Bean said: “I found her to be one of the most delightful people that I ever met and I was very close with Jayne for the entire run. She was totally guileless. She was crazy like a fox and knew exactly what she wanted. She never, ever, ever, once schluffed off a performance. She always gave 101% and it came out of that knowledge, that absolute knowledge that all eyes were on her.” The success was massive - it was sold out every night, everyone wanted to get a look at the woman that had her pictures on the front of all the magazines and newspapers around the world. 'Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?’ closed on 3 November 1956 after 444 performances.
