Before I crash tfo here is just a list of the most beautiful things in great comet
-pierogi in the beginning. Totally unexpected and adorable
-air raid sirens
-andrey’s presence around stage. In the opera, during the entire affair, etc.
-any time pierre looked at Natasha. Admiringly when she was with Andrey, concerned with Anatole, slightly devastated with Helene, and then all of a sudden, differently altogether.
-just dolokhov who loves his mother and keeps getting demoted because he can’t pass muster and just is generally beautiful.
-Anatole, dolokhov, and Helene together. Like I thought I knew how gay and incestuous that was gonna be, and I did NOT. Talk about a squad.
-Marya’s understudy who was so so so wonderful.
-also just we were sat right next to one of the beams the actors dance on in the mezzanine and it was outstanding. I’m in love with the girl with braids and red armpit hair hmu if you know her name otherwise I’ll look it up tomorrow morning.
-Denee benton’s voice and look and acting and facial expressions.
-okay I know I’m super gay but I’m REALLY gay for Amber Gray like Charming was the song where once I got into it I was like “ok it’s time I’m ready to come out” so
-Lucas Steele who was so so amazing like life changing honestly who hit the outrageous notes in Letters and sang “Petersburg” amazingly and who only mouthed words at stage door and I feel for him so much he does such amazing work.
-josh groban was surprising to me I was honestly amazed because I didn’t listen to the obc beforehand but like. Wow. Cried during dust and ashes but particularly at that bit about not letting me die when I’m like this because whoa.
-balaga. Who was everything I’d hoped for and more.
-big big hands plus butt shake I loved it
-just the stage in general I have honestly never felt that way before I was inside that show and it was amazing.
-bear headed folks during the ball.
This doesn’t even touch on Sonya and Mary and their beautiful selves or anything else with the ensemble who were all so talented and angelic and the musicians both moving around on stage and in their little wells/closets which was outstanding but it’s 2 am so.
One time when I was 13 I had a big gay crush on my friend who I knew was bisexual and when she was at my house I tried to do a fancy cute lunch and serenade her with a piano but being the awkward gay I am, it didn't go well. I brought some flowers in from outside and there was a huge jumping spider in the flowers so it ran all over the table-- I was flustered because of that but she thought it was cute. And then for the piano I got too anxious and yeah... she was chill about it but... yike.
