ANTHONY AND ADAM!


MARK!


AND ROGER!


MARK AND ROGER!!!1!


OH MY GOD THEY WERE SO FUCKING AMAZING! I can't believe I've seen the two of them together on Broadway. This was an amazing dream come true. They were incredible. Tears came to my eyes the minute they walked on stage. I think I held my breath for the first few minutes of the show because I didn't want to miss half a second. I just wanted to take as much of them as I could.

Our seats... WERE FANTASTIC. LOOK AT HOW CLOSE WE WERE!



I have never ever been that close before in all the times that I've seen the show. You can see so much more of the emotion and OMIGODITWASSOFUCKINGPOWERFUL! Tamyra Gray (of American Idol fame) was Mimi and she was amazing as well. I gasped in horror when she walked out with short hair and then took one of the first lines of "Light My Candle" down an octave but she quickly redeemed herself and proved that she was a magnificently saucy Mimi. (ZOMG THE BUTT SHAKES AND THE PELVIC THRUSTS! "I'm Roger." *PELVIC THRUST* SQUEEEE!) But yes, I got teary eyed at the reprise of "I'll Cover You" and then burst into full on tears at "Halloween" and "Goodbye Love" which are my favorite parts of the entire show. It was absolutely unbelievable to see Anthony and Adam go back and forth. I died. My heart literally stopped beating. And the two of them absolutely exploded with energy at "What You Own"... it was electric. They have breathtaking chemistry. Tears were pouring down my face at the beauty of the whole thing. And just when I thought I couldn't possibly cry anymore, when I was cursing myself for how much I was missing because my eyes were so blurry with tears, Adam let out the most heartwrenching and raw rendition of "Your Eyes". I was a fucking mess and it turned into full on shuddering and audible sobs with his throaty and broken "MIMI!!!" And I didn't stop bawling until the cast was off the stage. I feel better though because athena2483 was right there with me, just as much a mess.

You know it's bad when strangers behind you are handing you tissues.

...

So not joking.

But yes, afterwards we went outside and I fought through the crowds (honestly, clearly none of those girls had ever been to a rock concert before... they didn't stand a chance) to get Anthony and Adam to sign our playbills and that's where I snapped all those pictures. (No really, I have about 40 just like those and I'm not sure what to do with them... Don't believe me? They're all here.) I didn't get to talk to either of them, and I really do hope I get to talk to Anthony one day because his book honestly moved me so much. And I would love to be able to tell him that. I think I might've actually cried more while reading his book than I did at Saturday's show. If you are a "Renthead" at all, it's a must read, but even if you're not it's really just a beautiful memoir about love and loss.

And now I have to throw out a big big big thank you to athena2483 for showing foreverseenstar and I an amazing time in the city. (BTW, IF YOU EVER GO TO NYC, EAT AT CHOCOLATE BY THE BALD MAN... IT'S ABSOLUTE SEX.) I hope we're back very very soon. I forget how much I really do love that city... *sigh* Why do I live in Manchester? Oh right, I'm poor. Bah. Anyway, I got yelled at today for falling asleep during a meeting and I do really have a bunch of shit to do that I've been putting off (what online class?) because I suck at life. So sorry for not lj-cutting this but uh... MARK AND ROGER DON'T GET LJ CUTS, BITCHEZ, SO SUCK IT. Yes, I sound sorry, don't I? Ha. Later, skaterz.

PS - And this weekend is Mandy Moore? My little fangirl heart is seriously going to explode!

PPS - foreverseenstar, please to be getting your RENT DVD, unless Lisa really does have one, which I intend to find out when she gets off the phone.

Haha I know, this path month has been fangirl crazy. :) I would've preferred to spread out the fun because I'm not sure my little heart can take all this excitement!

Ugh, I definitely would not have been able to! I'm so jealous. I'm purchasing robes off of your roomate, she's kind enough to make them for me!

She told me. As usual, I'm sure I'll wind up being her human dress form. ;)
