Michael Paulson did such a terrific job capturing the roller coaster of emotions the cast and creators of ''Moulin Rouge!'' has been on. It must be so surreal to part of that season's new musical blockbuster hit - something I imagine most everyone dreams of - and then to be suddenly shut down. Glad to hear that everyone there who had COVID has recovered. I can't wait for these ''Moulin Rouge!'' folks to return when they ''can-can-can.''
As for those who questioned whether the Tonys should go on, I was gratified to read Aaron Tveit's response: ''I was so happy [the Tonys] decided to go forward with [the nominations]. It was a strange year and a shortened season, but there was a lot of great work done. I've tried to think of my nomination as recognition of my work and the performance. And I did reach out to ['The Lightning Thief' actor] Chris McCarrell, who was the other person who could have been nominated - I've had a couple of difficult Tony mornings, so I understand what that feels like.'' Aaron's such a class act.
