The one on the right is attractive. The one on the left is not only fugly, but he seems to be obsessed with showing off his underdeveloped chest.
Matt's not a chorus boy. He was the replacement lead and swing in Spring Awakening and had a featured role in War Horse and Bye Bye Birdie. He has a great voice but is incredibly hammy and takes himself too seriously. Check out his youtube videos - he acts like he thinks he's a great soul singer but he's singing these second rate songs that wouldn't make a decent folk album or Broadway show.
That all said...
If you want to see something creepy, check out tumblr of Matt Doyle ... there are endless sobbings over these two as the perfect couple from girls, no less, who fantasize about going to see a Matt Doyle concert so they can see Ryan sitting there watching Doyle.... "I'm crying because they're so beautiful...."
But isn't fugly relative when one can do this, R3?
Let them have their fun. Twenty years from now when one is a legal secretary and the other is selling menswear at Lord & Taylor they'll have these pictures as mementos.
True, but don't you want to see a video of that, 45 years old, to see what happens when the glow fades?
AKB with an adopted child, about his height...
These dancers trying to do the same moves and pulling something on camera...
Still looking doe-eyed at the world they set out to discover on holidays and weekend getaways, with the crows feet through the makeup showing up in vivid HD....
Ah, narcissism, elevated to high art.... well, in this case, low art, but still...
No one who makes chorus wages would ever be considered a "power couple."
Does 28-year old AKB actually spend his free time playing duck duck goose in the park and beer pong with apple cider?
Some of it is obviously an act for the camera, but are these Newsies boys possibly just Not That Scandalous?
That video is some sappy shit right there.
Are you kidding, R7? In 25 years, they'll all be back home in whatever little towns in flyover country they came from, running the local dance schools and directing the community theater musicales in the church basement.
Oh, and modelling the latest in caftan and earring styles.
They won't be smart enough to be legal secretaries, not stylish enough to work anywhere in retail in NYC.
this will end in tears
He photographs a little awkward, but I think Ryan is arguable one of the hottest guys on Broadway. Phenomenal dancer - all the boys in the Newsies cast are quite good, but he really is a cut above.
Bumping this thread just to share this picture. Merry Christmas from the cutest couple in allllll of Broadway!
A "chorus-boy power couple" is a contradiction in terms.
Your brother's going to medical school and you're going up to be a chorus boy? NOTHING!
They're the Chairman Mao and Madame Mao of chorus boys! Where they walk, powerful stagehands are known to shudder in abject terror.
OMG, two happy young gay boys!! Let's all tear our hair out!!
For a hilarious read, check out playbill's indulgence of Matt Doyle's soul playlist, where he treats us to his insights on soul singing, with phrases like "I can't" and "It's like butter" and, for Aretha Franklin, "Well done, girl, well done."
