Mentally kicking myself for not catching this at Second Stage last year. I love this duet so much! I’ve been listening to the cast recording and watching videos on youtube for hours. Pasek and Paul never disappoint. Also, Lindsay Mendez and Derek Klena are too awesome. I just might have to make a return trip to Wicked to see them as Elphaba and Fiyero.
Want to see me light up with glee? Put this guy in front of me and have him sing Rodgers and Hammerstein. Oh, wait. That actually happened. I had stars in my fucking eyes, man. glassdoll can attest to it.
Aaron Tveit singing his encore, “My Romance,” a Rodgers & Hart standard, at 54 Below on 5/11/13.
I’d like to point out that this number is actually two songs! The second half is another fantastic standard called “I Remember You” by Mercer and Schertzinger.
Hearing those two together live was simply sublime. My heart was ready to burst the second he started singing the latter. I’ve always loved Ella Fitzgerald’s rendition of both songs and hearing Aaron’s spin on them was really something special.
