Throwback… er… Monday!
He was so nice. My sister (not the other chick in the picture, she’s some girl I was friends with in high school) told him she wanted to be an actor and asked if he had any advice for her. He talked to her for half an hour, and then only stopped because these Japanese tourists walked up to him and asked if he worked there. He said yes and they said they had left their camera in the theater. He took their hotel information and said he’d give it to the right people the next day.
I mean, hello!??!?! He is the STAR of the show. He not only chatted earnestly with his fan, but he also helped these people get their camera. He is so modest and talented and wonderful.
This is a great man.
I got new shoes for steampunking yesterday!!! They’re brown ankle boots and the sides have this really cool lace on them. They were originally marked at $70. I got them for $13. It was awesome.
I’m seeing Matilda on Broadway tonight. Crossing my fingers that I won’t gouge my own eyes out because of how much I loathe children singing. I’ve just heard too many good things about this show to not see it.
Thinking maybe I’ll combine my two new exciting things and wear my new boots to the theater!!!
Anyone have a video of Andrea Martin doing Just No Time At All??? I heard she performed it on Oprah or something, but I can not find it… Anyone?
I’m really worried about not being able to get tickets. Does anyone know how early people get to the theater? Are there crazy lines and people sleeping outside the theater like when N2N first opened?
It looks like Spring Awakening Jr.
Totally Fucked got turned into some song about being Naughty.
I saw Cinderella on Broadway last night. It was good. Not outstanding, but it was fun and obviously the music made everyone feel all warm and gushy inside. It’s R&H’s Cinderella. The new story could have been worse! It was a bit forced at some points, but I was honestly expecting worse.
All of the actors in the show are really good. I personally don’t love Laura Osnes, she hit really pitchy high notes when I saw her in South Pacific and Anything goes, and her voice has definitely improved since then, but she’s still just really breathy, and it bothers me. It’s bad technique. But she looked the part…
Victoria Clark was best. She was amazing and gorgeous and had so much fun with the role and got to fly and was adorable and I love her. She can do no wrong.
Random side note, in the second act, Cinderella (Laura Osnes has brown hair) wears a yellow-gold dress. And then brings a book to a banquet. I’m sorry, but Belle much? That’s all I kept thinking.
And speaking of costumes… THE COSTUMES FOR THIS SHOW WERE WONDERFUL!
The lighting could have been a bit better, but that’s because I’m a lighting snob and notice more about lighting than most people.
All in all, it was a really magical evening, and I’ll probably see the show again. I kind of want to force every child I know to go see it too. They’d all like it. AND there are no children IN the show, so no pitchy awful voice changing little ear shatterers!
I meant to post these a while ago, but then I got distracted. :-P
These are from the 15th Anniversary concert performance of Ragtime, which is one of my favorite shows ever. I sobbed the entire way through the show. It was so good.
