I loved her in the quiet way
a girl loves a girl who loves a boy;
in the shadow of kisses I stole
from her sleep.
She’d stretch out in the sun,
long limbs and slanted eyes and I’d
be clenching my fists, reminding
myself that I couldn’t,
that she wouldn’t.
And she didn’t.

Why do I not live on Broadway because I need to see this
my thoughts exactly
I am always extremely wary of revivals of Broadway musicals. Usually, they’re nothing more than a re-hashing of the original production. But this looks fucking awesome because:
- Patina Miller. Patina Miller. Patina Miller. Ben Vereen was iconic in this part and she is literally the only person I can think of who could actually bring something new to the role. Casting her was a stroke of genius
- The production actually looks like it makes an effort to do it’s own thing with the material. It looks nothing like the original production and it seems like the director has developed a point of view about the material without being influenced by the original production
- If I had to choreograph a musical that was originally choreographed by Bob Fosse, I think I’d run screaming in the opposite direction. But this choreography looks, sharp, sexy, and confidently it’s own thing
- Did I mention Patina Miller?
I’m freaking crying I’m not exaggerating I am just freaking sobbing.

When the girls dress like the boys x white tie and tails VIII. Marlene Dietrich understood men’s clothes better than most men. And style wise she was far ahead of her time. In a time in which women were more or less stuck to skirts and dresses, she started raiding the male wardrobe to add to her collection of dresses and gowns. She had her men’s tailors, shirtmakers and cobblers (she frequented quite a few) make her suits, blazers, sports coats, shirts and custom made trousers. But only Knize in Vienna and Eddie Schmidt in Hollywood made her many tails. Fun trivia: Dietrich’s starched shirt cuffs were directly attached with a hidden buttoned fastening in the sleeve of her dress suits. So she wore sleeveless shirts with her tailcoat, that allowed for quick costume changes and slimmer, more feminely cut jacket sleeves. And while costume jewelry was always worn with stage costumes, for Marlene’s favorite white tie and tails, the cuff links were always her own- from Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels or Trabert & Hoeffer.
