BWW Blog: Sherz Aletaha of Off-Broadway's DISASTER! - Kiss The Blog Goodbye
Well Broadway World, it's my final blog which means it's time to say goodbye. But nobody likes goodbyes, so let's avoid it with funny stories about "Disaster!" This week we had an amazing LGBT event at the show. The audience was so energetic, and we kept raving about them backstage because they laughed at everything (clearly, we are all attention whores). We had special celebrity guests, Norbert Leo Butz, Laura Osnes, Robin De Jeus, and John Tartaglia at the show. Can we talk about how sweet they all are?!?! I always have "pinch me" moments when the theater folks I obsessed over in high school and college come to the show. After we geeked out over the celebs listed above, the cast, crew, and audience were all invited to Southern Hospitality for a beverage as part of the event. Like I mentioned in my last blog, the cast is in love so if you give us an opportunity to hang out together, we're there. Not only did we enjoy our complimentary beverages, but we also stuffed ALL of the mac and cheese in our faces. Whoever said "nothing tastes as good as skinny feels" is a dirty liar.
The next day was Seth Rudetsky's birthday! Happy Birthday, Seth!!! When it comes to his birthday, it starts on the actual day and the celebration ends a month later. So if you run into Seth before April, wish him a happy birthday. Haven Burton, Saum Eskandani, Maggie McDowell, Max Crumm, and I made a little video for Seth where we sang him the birthday song but did it completely out of tune. We found it hilarious. I would share it with you, but we made the executive decision that we weren't wearing make up and therefore nobody needed to see that video. Just trust, it was super funny. We ended the show with a special curtain call with a festive sign and a birthday tune, this time in a beautiful key and with harmonies.
Guys, we've reached the end. This is the worst! I've had such a great time writing this blog, and I want to send the most heartfelt thank you to you for reading it. If you're in town, come visit us at "Disaster!" In the meantime, I'm going to keep you updated via the magic of social media. If you want to laugh at me, find me on Twitter @morethanonecher and I'll keep writing here http://morethanonecher.tumblr.com . I hope you keep in touch, and more than anything I hope you make it over to St. Luke's so you can laugh your booties off at our little show. See you all on the Barracuda!
