I know these Colin communities have not been active lately….but all Colin fans should go and see Colin at the George Street Playhouse production of “Falsettos.” Colin is great and it is an awesome production.

GO! www.gsponline.com

Who here is planning on seeing I Love You Because, or has already seen it? I'd really love to hear a review!

And some more random linkage and pictures...

Cute little interview clip w/ Colin.

It's times like these that I hate living in CA. I would absolutely LOVE to see this show. Does anyone know what are the chances of the cast releasing a recording? (I'm guessing it's unlikely - but I'd kill for a cast recording) From what I've heard from the demo, the music is fantastic.

Hmm...yeah...I just realized that I'm responsible for starting the last 3 posts in this community. Anyway, really quick question that hopefully someone can help me out with. Colin participated in a reading of the show "Zanna, Don't!" (along with Caesar Samayoa & Matt Morrison) a while ago...Feb. of 2002 I believe. Anyway, I would love you forever if anyone can tell me what character he played? I can't seem to find this info anywhere, and it's starting to frustrate me. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Hey, I'm new here! I've been into muscials my whole life, but I've really gotten obbsessed over the last three years. I have seen RENT 5 times as of right now, but I'm planning to go again over the summer. I've also seen The Producers, Wicked (twice), La Cage (right before it closed), Beauty and the Beast, Sound of Music (a long time ago), Aida, 42nd Street, Mama Mia, and in London the new Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, Woman in White. I suggest you go see ALL of them. Plus, Tick, Tick...Boom and the Last Five Years (both with Colin) at the Georgestreet Playhouse.

I didn't know there were so many other Colin fans. I'm lucky, I got to see him in RENT twice, Tick, Tick...Boom, and The Last Five Years. I must say, that I am now a huge fan! He and Sarah are amazing singers and they have great chemistry. After one of the shows I got to see them, but they looked busy and I didn't want to bother them. It was tons of fun though!


Oh, and if anyone knows where one may be able to grab pictures of him in The Last Five Years, I will be eternally greafull.

A couple of new things... [26 Apr 2005|08:28am]

Here are some articles about Colin in The Last 5 Years. The first one is particularly good (in my humble opinion), but give them both a read:

Maybe it'll grow on me?

By the way, is anybody going to see TL5Y on May 12? My friend and I just got tickets and I'm wondering if anyone else is going to be there that night.

Colin in TL5Y [20 Mar 2005|11:01pm]

If you're in the area, Colin Hanlon will be playing Jamie in The Last 5 Years at NJ's George Street Playhouse. (This is the same playhouse he performed at in tick, tick ... BOOM! last year...) Tickets are onsale online and over the phone, and the playhouse isn't huge, so if you want to go you should buy yours quickly! He'll be playing opposite Sarah Litzsinger (Susan from GSP's ttB). I'm really excited for it!

The show is running from April 19th til May 15th (including previews.) Previws have a talk back after them - ttB's talkback was really interesting...

Hi all, I'm Jessica and I just joined the community. I'm a huge fan of Musical Theater and even more so of "Rent" I have always enjoyed Colin on stage but just yesterday I saw his "Mark" and I fell head over heels in love with him. I just think he is amazing and I had to do a search on him. I am so happy to have found others who appreciate him as much as I do! I would have been disappointed if I didn't. lol.

Hey guys. Colin will be doing a free reading of a new musical, entitled Another Saturday Night In New York, with Stephanie D'Abruzzo, on January 25.

Article here: http://www.playbill.com/news/article/90676.html

Needless to say, on the 25th I'll be sitting my apartment in Connecticut cursing all my classes, but hopefully some of you will get a chance to check it out.

Hey guys! Thought I'd drop in to liven the place up a little bit. I was in NYC yesterday & caught the matinee for RENT (lotto seats, too! w00t!), & Colin was on as Roger! I wasn't all that surprised because apparently Jeremy's been sick all week, but I was really excited about it. I thought I'd share my thoughts on his performance:



"Colin Hanlon: I've heard so much hype over his Roger, & considering how much I love his Mark, I was sincerely hoping I wasn't getting set up for disappointment. I wasn't. He was just...absolutely brilliant. He played the character as someone who has a good heart, but he can be downright vicious if you push him the wrong way. He was very touchy, tended to lose his temper a lot (moreso, I think, than Jeremy & Sebastian had when I saw them). A lot of eye-rolling, some good-natured, some not.

The thing I appreciate most about Colin's Roger was that he portrayed the character in a way that I hadn't considered before. He was just mean, & really fucking scary sometimes, too. And he did it without overplaying the anger, which is a pretty delicate balance to walk. And the other thing I appreciate is how effortless his whole performance seemed. He has this ability to open up & become completely vulnerable, & he's so good with the emotional stuff, which is where a lot of actors have trouble. He's got his character down, & he doesn't hesitate to go where he needs to in order to portray him. I found myself thinking, you son of bitch, so many times throughout the show. I responded to him more strongly than anyone else I've seen. He makes bold choices & then he follows through with them. Always in character & always in the moment. I have nothing but respect for this man as an actor, & he has blown me away every time I've seen him, no matter the character. Especially tonight."



There's a full review of the show in my journal if any of you are interested in reading that, too (http://www.livejournal.com/users/crimsonnight17/274591.html#cutid1). Be forewarned, it's long & really gushy, even for me. The show yesterday was the best I've seen it since the first time I saw it (granted, that was only a year ago & some change, but shush), & I had a hard time remembering the not-good things about it. So it's rather one-sided. But there, I've said my piece. Have a good night, everyone!

Hey Everyone! I just joined the community and wanted to introduce myself. My name is Brittany and I live in the lovely Sunshine State (aka-Florida). I fell in love with Colin when I recently saw him play Roger in RENT. He is such an amazing performer and is incredibly hot! Seeing as The Last Five Years is one of my favorite musicals, I was so excited to hear that he was going to be in it during April/May. I can't wait to see him perform again! ♥
