The music in Cats was worth every dime. For anyone who has ever lost a loved one, Memory is so gorgeous, but heart wrenching.

Victor Garber still has a beautiful voice, 30 years after Sweeney Todd. He's one of my all time favorites.
Did you hear he's returning to Broadway this fall? He'll star in Present Laughter, directed by Nicholas Martin (who directed VG in the same play last year at the Huntington in Boston).

I read this this morning, and I'm not too sure what to think of it.

Hmm Favorite shows!

Into the Woods
Phantom
Lion King
Rent
Black and Blue


We've been lucky to see many many stars on Broadway- Vanessa Williams,Michael Crawford, Sting(that show lasted only ONE day and we just happened to be there on opening and closing night all in one! the list goes on and on. We saw Young Frankenstein with Andrea Martin and Megan Mullally- hillarious!
But my favorite celeb interaction was when we got to meet Constantine from American Idol outside of The Wedding Singer. He was so funny and was joking with my friend and I - actually ragging on us- but we were laughing so hard. It was a great night and he topped it off by being so down to earth and approachable!
Another funny story from High School a friend had a major crush on Christopher Reeves. So she went to see him in something on Broadway- wearing her brand new white ski jacket to stand out. waited for him outside- waits for the autograph- he tells her to turn around so he can use her back to steady the paper.........

well she faints and he draws a line down the entire back of her down jacket!!! She never washed it. because it was his line. And she was fine just very embarrased.

Oh and for those with sons! A broadway producer we met said SPIDERMAN!! is coming to broadway in the theater where Young Frankenstein was.! Can't wait for that. Wonder who will be Spidey? (U2 signed on to do the music about a year ago double bonus for me!)

She is 83, and looks incredible for her age. When I get the photo uploaded I will post it.

Have fun at Lion King! That show and B&B inspired me to do theatre for a living. I adore Julie Taymor!

Not really, I'm a high school theatre teacher. Mostly the technical side, but I can sing a mad musical number. I used to do a lot more performing, but a knee injury kept me from seriously pursuing the performance side of the art. I got my degree in scenic design, and loooove teaching my students about the different aspects of theatre. Its great to see new students develop a love for the theatre! Maybe someday I will pursue it professionally, but for now I'm happy!
