14 Reasonable GIF Reactions to Aaron Tveit’s “Why God Why...

The first annual Elsie Fest (named for Sally Bowles’ pills and liquor loving roommate) took place in New York City on September 27, and it was a smashing success. Headliners included founder Darren Criss, Laura Osnes, Lea Salonga, Seth Rudetsky, Leslie Odom Jr., and Aaron Tveit.

Everyone sang showtunes and it was heaven. But the moment of true bliss came when Aaron Tveit (Next to Normal, Catch Me If You Can) sang “Why God Why” from Miss Saigon—a role he is destined to play and a dreamcast moment only Elsie Fest could provide. Take a listen and then let’s have a group therapy session through GIF.

And back to the music. Rewind because you missed some. 2:37 seems like a good place to start.
