Quick, Before It’s Over! Happy Birthday, Jonathan Groff!

Oh haaaay, cute Jonathan Groff, it’s your birthday!

Jonathan Groffinator turns 27 today, and we’d like to personally thank him for several things.

Dear Jonathan:

1. Thanks for single-handedly transforming the character of Melchior Gabor from a rape-y brute into an angel-eyed hero.

2. Thanks for giving us hope that Lea Michele has some intrinsic humanity and genuine inner coolness because she’s friends with you.

3. Thanks for wearing your glasses sometimes. Little kids who wear glasses really appreciate that.

4. Thanks for all your raised-on-a-goat-farm/pseudo-Mennonite idiosyncrasy.

5. Thanks for singing Whitesnake in your solo show that one time. It made us feel like we were doing awesome, mind-altering drugs, only we didn’t feel like crap the next morning.

6. That’s for being in The Bacchae, which only ran for eight performances and we saw five of them. Because you SPARKLED!

7. Thanks for staying cute. You know, like this:

And this…

And this…

    I can’t say enough about Jonathan Groff, John Gallagher, in fact the whole cast of Spring Awakening. I saw a Wednesday matinee a few weeks after the Tonys and I loved the show. And even though it was a matinee, everyone came out and signed and they could not have been nicer and more gracious with a huge group of people waiting for them. Yes, even Lea Michele. I’ll always remember that performance and stage door experience fondly!

    I love Jon, he’s super talented and just so sweet.

    Plus, I just listened to his songs from the Miscast Gala and OMG! He’s so great. I can’t believe he hasn’t gone back to Broadway yet. What is he waiting for?

    Glee is crap and TV in generally is not good enough for him. He should do more musicals.

    I love the Craptacular – but not as much as I love Jonathan Groff.

    Though there is a special place in my heart for your girls! :)

    What’s with the creepy smiley face?!

    Hey guys.
    Can you talk about Smash at all? I want to hear your opinion about this show. :)
