I saw Moulin Rouge and I haven't been shy about how disappointing I found it on every level. But the cast was one of those levels. Aaron is very talented, but I do not think his performance gelled into the kind of dynamic, charming, seductive, vulnderable and vibrant performance this role demands and show desperately needed from its lead. Karen Olivo too, and outside of their independent performances, their lack of chemistry together was a key problem for the production.

I'm a fan of Tveit. Honestly. And he wasn't bad at all, and his fantastic voice was on display... I just don't think under normal circumstances that he did what I would call "tony worthy" work here. I also don't blame him, as I think the show is really not well made and can't be easy for an actor to get right while also singing the roof off.
