I wholeheartedly agree. I remain sad that I could only see it once, but deeply grateful that I could see it all. First act from the top of the balcony, but I was able to slide into an empty orchestra seat for the second. His Soliloquy was probably the most deeply moving moment I’ve yet experienced in theater - his acting and singing complemented each other perfectly. I began tearing up as the Soliloquy started and continued sobbing intermittently through the rest of the show. As you say, his performance along with the rest of the cast (and I want to give props to Audra as well) made this a revelatory production. What had, in every other production I’d seen (none in NY) mere treacle, unveiled depths of psychological insight and feeling that I never imagined available in this, or really any, musical.
