andymientus: You guys, we need to talk about An American in Paris. I saw it on Broadway and loved it and just saw it again on tour and I’m freaking out. It is so, so excellent. Adult, sophisticated, moving. I love it because it takes its audience seriously and trusts them to handle REAL dance, REAL scenes, REAL conflict without pandering. That act 2 ballet is so thrilling and so unlike anything I’d expect from a musical based on a movie with a preexisting score. We all know @RySteele is one of the best dancers on Bway but turns out he’s also a beautiful actor and singer who can 100% lead a show. Wow. And there is no greater joy than seeing an old friend be perfect in a role that’s perfect for him. @etaibenson killed me and everyone else. I was totally transported by this company and wept openly several times. The message is so relevant. It’s everything I love about musicals. Please let Christopher Wheeldon direct as many musicals as he pleases.
I saw what Cable in Deadpool 2 is gonna look like and the first thing I thought was, "Khat is gonna love this guy."
