some important™ things from when i saw deh
hello it’s me i saw deh in july with the obc and it was the best day of my life,, here are some highlights:
- so know when in sincerley me jared is like “lol stop hyperventilating ur totally hyperventilating” and evan goes “im not hyperventilating jared!” before singing his part?
- me too.
- but guess what?
- that part rolls around and ben freaking platt just goes right into will’s face and just yells
- just incoherent, jumbled yells while he shakes his head super fast
- i Died™
- also,, know the part during sincerley me when connor skips around the little wall thing and sings “well anyWAYYYY”
- so during that part mike faist skips around, and i kid you not, does a full on freaking heel click
- he hauled his 10 foot legs into the air and clicked his heels together and i’ve never been the same
- moving on
- i’ve said it before and i’ll say it again: ben platt’s voice is. just. incredible. insane.
- during his speech before ywbf at the end of act 1 when he dropped the note cards he was on the ground for a solid two minutes just visibly shaking
- it really did feel like it was real
- oh also, speaking of ywbf, the harmonies
- goosebumps. goosebumps all around.
- same goes for good for you
- rachel bay jones was just so amazing, you could hear how broken heidi was in her voice and ohmygod
- and when evan starts singing “sTOP it sTOP it just let me oUUTTTT”
- jared, alana, and heidi are all surrounding him and the look of pure panic on his face when he goes to leave and realizes he’s surrounded is just heartbreaking
- speaking of heartbreaking
- so big so small man
- rachel bay jones just killed it
- and evan is just literally half on the couch, clinging to her and by the end of the song he’s just on the floor and she’s hugging him so tight and ohmygod
- so. many. tears.
- speaking of tears? REQUIEM
- laura was soooo great
- when she sang “that yOU WERE NOT THE MONSTER” she just crumpled all of the papers in her hand into a ball and i just,, gasped because w o w
this was w a y longer than expected, but pretty much deh was life changing anddd i love it with all my heart
