How'd you blow your voice out? Are you in a show? (sorry if this is annoying, I'm just really curious)

1. I don’t know, one of those random voice losses

2. Yes, currently playing the role of Javert in Les Misérables

I blew out my voice. I barely made it thru last night it sounded awful, today was even worse, and now its completely out. Oy. Thankful for 4 days I get to rest.


Ramin’s voice is just so seducing and powerful, and I believe he once said that he portrays Erik as Autistic, which is absolutely brilliant. Hugh just as the look of him, you know? Plus I like how insane he makes Erik act. With Norm, this might sound stupid, but just the fact he’s African-American makes him perfect. ‘Cause they were seen as lesser people back then, and combined with the deformity, it makes sense he would be treated the way he was.

…an immature sarcastic child with a poor stereotype of autism and has a hard time singing high notes?
To each their own, i guess.

Dean poked fun at Jerry during his show in Vegas and then he just said the cute thing at the end (9:19 although the whole monologue is worth a listen tbh)

Goshdangit I warmed up singing Weird Al songs. Don’t do that if you have a musical to do that night. You wont be able to sing them properly -.-

Like…because I warmed up singing pop-styled music my throat was settled into singing like that, which is a completely different style than Javert, so when I tried singing Javert, I couldn’t sing it right. So. I had to re-warm up/adjust my voice. Annoying as shit. Oh well.

so if he sounds like this now, after only 2 months

what the hell is he going to sound like by November O.O
