“They’re our peers” aka Stephanie and Brandon freaking out over their fellow Tony nominees Laura Linney, Cynthia Nixon and Mary Beth Peil being in the same room as them

PETITION

for the cast of falsettos to have another live stream viewing party once it comes out on pbs ( like they did for the album drop ) and like talk about their scenes and the process from the initial blocking to final staging and their favorite moments and like cute backstage stories,,,,


is that too much to ask

Okay so everyone talks about Marvin’s character development, which I will not deny is one of the most dynamic and realistic character arcs of any fictional character I’ve heard of.

Still, no one talks about Trina’s development. In act one and part of act two, she lets her anger at Marvin take over life. It blinds her to Mendel’s love. Also, Jason to her is just a symbol of her failed marriage. By Holding to the Ground, she lets her bitterness go. She allows Mendel to love her and sees Jason for who he is: her extremely intelligent and mature son. She chooses to be friends with Marvin and care for Whizzer. Trina is one of the strongest female characters ever, but what makes her strong is that we as the audience are able to see her struggles to achieve that strength. Idk I just love Trina.
