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."
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
