  • Happy to see his hair is longer. The long hair framed his face really well.

  • Okay, is anyone else noticing that he appears to be growing out his hair? Is this his way of saying he's making a comeback as the lead in Hamilton once it comes back to broadway?!

    • @Megan Ormshaw I did read somewhere that Hamilton will be the first show to come back once Broadway opens back up, so maybe...? I don't live in New York, but there is a production scheduled to be in Minneapolis in April 2023. It was supposed to be this June, but some stupid virus still wants to make itself bigger!

    • I thought this too. I was under the impression he didn’t like his hair long since he chopped it off so quick after he left the show. I wondered if he was maybe secretly planning to take on Hamilton again for a bit to help Broadway gets back on its feet once it’s allowed to reopen. We’re probably out to lunch tho lol

    • Apart from animated Disney musicals, Les Mis was my first big musical. I had a HUGE crush on Nick Jonas. My mom bought the dvd of his performance on the East End production when he played Marius. I remember watching it and thinking Enjolras was hotter and the best actor in the production. 😂 I found out later he was played by future Phantom actor and beefcake Ramin Karimloo.

  • "...Fundraising For Covid Relief..." motivates us, the people of America, to redouble our efforts to rapidly find out at any given moment, including even while On-Line, who among us are unwittingly contagious (i.e. pre-symptomatic or asymptomatic) in order to #ConvinceItForward for them to call their doctor and to self-quarantine per CDC guidelines in hopes of stopping this pandemic instead of having more #MourningInAmerica. Thus, we're hoping for the best while preparing for the worse-case scenario of the #UKvariant strain(s) mutations and others like the South African, Brazilian, Californian, Texan (BV-1), & #Cluster5Mink mutations rendering current vaccines no longer effective.
