Cristin Milioti and Steve Kazee. I know I did the show, but I can still be a fan. Best thing I've ever seen. A perfect musical.

Miss Honey and Matilda. I forget who I saw, but the love story between them made me cry all night.

Kyle Riabko. That guy is a star. I saw it when I was rehearsing for Once and nearly quit the business that night after seeing him. I didn't (quit the business) 'cause I still had debts to pay off. But if I ever see him again, I'm definitely quitting the business and offering guided tours of the Newfoundland wilderness.
