People talk about how hard long distance relationships are but nobody talks about the struggle of long distance friendships. I would give my left leg right now to just be able to sit in our pjs and watch movies or to just be able to give a big fucking hug.

No but the problem is, I cannot forgive the Tony Committee for this. Neither Hedwig nor Violet have been on Broadway before and so AREN’T FUCKING REVIVALS IN THE FIRST PLACE, and there were only four supposedly eligible musicals to begin with. 

Yes, there is reasoning behind putting the other two in this category, but there is none behind going to the trouble of making Cabaret eligible, only to go ‘Nope’ at the last minute.

And before one more person tells me that Cabaret is exactly the same as it was last time, it’s not. The cast is different (bar two people), and things have been changed. The costumes are different. The ad-libs are different. The choreography has changed. The casting has taken some of the characters in completely new directions. 

To suggest that it’s identical sixteen years later is foolishness. Especially when it’s coming from people who claim to know the musical. Have you not changed in the last sixteen years? I know I certainly have.

Yes, a lot of things are the same, but I can pretty much guarantee that Les Miserables still has a lot of stomping, flag-waving revolutionaries, a barricade of some kind and a selection of roughly time-period-appropriate sets and costumes, which is basically what this comes down to.

Alan Cumming does not a musical make (no matter how much we in the fandom argue at times that he does), and just because a person designed the costumes sixteen years ago and then did it again now it doesn’t mean they haven’t done just as much hard work this time around.

Basically, punishing people for doing their jobs so well that people want them to do them again.

Rant over.

For now. 

{ A quick apology to my non musical theater inclined followers: I’m about to post a chunky rant about those bastards, the Tony Awards Nominations Committee. It will be over very quickly, and (probably) won’t need to happen again. }

I don’t understand the USA, all your roads are straight and all your cities look like they were planned using Excel.

Everyone knows the only way to build a city is to wait until a bunch of tiny villages merge together over centuries and create a sprawling clusterfuck of winding roads that make no sense and have no street signs and are impossible to navigate unless you’ve lived there all your life.
