4. Then there was that time she needed to rap about beans and vegetables in Into the Woods so there could be at least one rap that all gays know.

5. Lest we forget about when she lost her mind eight times a week in Follies. Sometimes, that's just what one needs.

6. Even when she didn't need to win a Tony for her performance in Gypsy, she 100% won the 2003 Tony Awards with her performance of "Rose's Turn." (Who won that year? We did since we got to hear her sing.)
