anonymous asked:

i'm curious; what do you think of andy mientus?

okay so im gonna share an embarrassing story with you. when i went to go see dwsa, i stagedoored because i had learned minimal asl and i wanted a picture with sandra mae frank (she didnt even come out that night but i fell in love w treshelle so it was okay). anyway, andy mientus came out. my mother, who hadnt recognized anyone else expect for marlee matlin and camryn manheim, made this excited noise next to me. 

“i know him!” my mother said. i whipped my head around, saw andy a few people down the line, and turned back. 

“thats andy mientus,” i said, mouth twisted in displeasure. he was a good hanschen, but i had came to this show not liking him and goddamn if i wasnt going to try to stick to that. “he was marius in les mis and he was in this show, smash.”

“yes!” my mother continued, “you have to take a picture with him”

i, who had been taking pictures with everyone, didnt understand why my mother wouldve assumed that i wouldnt take one, but i still didnt rly like andy and i wanted to be contrary so i hissed, “i dont want a picture with him.”

it was then that i turned away from my mother and saw that andy mientus was literally Right behind me. he was clearly in hearing range. he had clearly heard me. i wanted to sink directly into the ground.

“hi,” he said, when he came to me, in his smooth, quiet voice. he was shorter than me. he was wearing a hat and a coat and looked super Soft. he signed my playbill. “did you like the show?”

i, flustered and embarrassed, said “yes! it was so good, you were so good! will you take a picture with me?”

“sure!” andy mientus said, smiling softly, because hes a Kind man and he was going to take a photo with me even though he 100% heard me talking shit. 

(the photo he took w me was Really good photo too)

so um. basically i think andy mientus is a Good Guy and a great actor. he comes off as a dick on social media sometimes, but irl hes so Small and soft spoken and tbh he was BEYOND fantastic as dwsas hanschen (even tho he does that rough thing w this voice thats apprntly bad for u). i used to hate him but Now i stan the hell out of him.

  • what she says: i'm fine
  • what she means: RUDY LOVED HIS PLANTS. ALL HE LOVED WERE DANCING AND MAX AND HIS PRECIOUS PLANTS. HE TALKED TO THE PLANTS AND CARED FOR THEM AND HE WANTED TO GO BACK HOME BECAUSE HE WAS AFRAID THE PLANTS WOULD DIE. HE NAMED HIS PLANTS. HE LOVED MAX EVEN THOUGH MAX WAS CHEATING ON HIM BECAUSE HE HAD THE PLANTS TO BE HIS FRIENDS. AND HE HAS TO DO HARD LABOR TO SURVIVE AND HE FUCKS UP HIS FEET SO HE CAN'T DANCE AND HE'S SUCH AN OPTIMIST AND THE PERSON HE LOVED BEAT HIM TO DEATH. HE WAS DYING AND THEY MADE HIS LOVER STRIKE THE FINAL BLOW AND HE JUST DIED ON THE FLOOR AND WAS FORGOTTEN. EVEN MAX FORGETS HIS NAME BUT MAX DID LOVE HIM BUT HE DIDN'T DESERVE HIM AND I'M NOT CRYING YOU'RE CRYING!

I was really kinda hoping they were gonna bring Hartley Rathaway back for that musical crossover.
First reason being I love Hartley Rathaway and would sell my own organs to get him to be on the show more often.
Second reason being Andy Mientus can freaking SING.
Third reason being I want Andy Mientus and Jeremy Jordan to work together again.
Final reason being HARTLEY RATHAWAY NEEDS TO BE ON THE SHOW MORE OFTEN, WHY CAN’T YOU JUST LET IT HAPPEN?!
