city of stars- la la land // if i never knew you- pocahontas // as long as you’re mine- wicked // gimme gimme- thoroughly modern millie // a whole new world- aladdin // i’ll cover you (reprise)- rent // the i love you song- the 25th annual putnam county spelling bee // perfect for you- next to normal
So…today I went to see Hedwig again (matinee show) and as usual, Darren was beyond amazing. I saw him one month ago (May 16th) and the difference between that Hedwig and today’s Hedwig was mind blowing. I thought he couldn’t get any better, but I was soooo wrong. The last time my favorite song was Wicked Little Town (reprise), this time Midnight radio was THE song! Also, I finally witnessed the ‘Col-fur’ joke and I have to admit that I squealed with anticipation , obviously trying not to make it obvious since a lot of people didn’t know about it, and it’s amazing to see the reaction of the audience. (A huge *face palm* to that small group who already knew that the joke was coming and started to cheer before Hedwig even said it *sighs*). Anyways, there’s no much I can add about his sublime performance; I think I already said a lot when I saw him for the first time. He’s just pure perfection. So if you haven’t, please go and buy a ticket (any ticket is a good ticket, trust me on this) and go see the man do his job because he’s just brilliant in it.
Anyways, there’s something else I would like to share with all of you, it’s kind of personal so I’ll just put it under the cut so you don’t have to read the whole thing if you don’t want to. I’m sharing this with full authorization from the person directly involved in it and I’m doing it just because I think that sometimes with all the turmoil of seeing Darren almost naked every night and all the stage door pics, we forget the true meaning behind this show. Today I was an eyewitness of what this show can do for a person.
