LOL!!!! It’s a great video, and the title is such a great pun for the theatrical set (“The Love That Dare Not Speak Its ‘Neigh’”!)

Congrats to Dan and “Equus” and cheers for charity events such as this that help those affected by AIDS. Sadly AIDS has had such an incredibly deep and devastating impact on the artistic and theatrical communities.

It’s such pure comedy to see Dan dancing with the Equus “horses”. And the song is hilarious too. Plus they raised over $200k which is amazing!

lol. Dan is funny and hyperactive as usual! I am wondering though if its worth Leaky giving readers warning of foul language used in Youtube comments. Youtube is quite notorious for its comments regardless of the video content. There is absolutely no monitoring or obscene language filtering on there.

Every time i’ve watched that video, i can’t help laughing. They were all so good, and Dan was such an excellent sport. They were one of the two groups to get a double curtain call on the monday show. Also the full clip is available on Youtube now, seen from the balcony. Absolutely wonderful. Bravo, Dan and company!

I heard there would be a DVD of the whole night’s performances – proceeds going to the charity too – it’s a shame I probably won’t get a chacne to get in the UK. I’d love that song and dance routine.
