MODFAB THINKS...I'll like Aaron Tveit more next season, when Catch Me If You Can turns him into a musical Leonardo DiCaprio. Until then, I'd prefer to honor Daniel Breaker, who sang, danced, and landed line after line, all while wearing a full-body donkey suit. (It's harder than it looks, people.) And for sheer enjoyment, I didn't have a better time with any supporting actor all season than Mr. Gross, the comic relief of 13.

DARK HORSE: In an otherwise mundane musical, vet Gregg Edelman offered up a textured, emotional, heartfelt performance in A Tale of Two Cities.
