We're parsing posting lingo, but I didn't find the comments on Tveit mean-spirited. We all employ shorthand to express our responses. Tveit is a gifted performer, but a chilly one. Starting with Next to Normal, he has an intriguing gap between his powerful vocals and his almost palpable reserve. A coolness. It works in an eccentric way in some roles (Catch Me) and for many people, but I get why some others feel he's not connecting. I had this debate about him in the past here.
