BWW Blog: Stephanie Martignetti of Broadway's NICE WORK IF YOU CAN GET IT - Friends, Costumes & Cannolis!
Saturday was our two show day. Before I went to work, I hung out with my friend NatAlie Hall who was in from LA staying with me for the week. She, and the emerging star of this blog, my roommate's dog Radley, formed quite a friendship over the course of the week. Every morning I would peer into the living room to see Radley claiming his space on top of a snoozing Natalie.
Saturday, Shina Ann Morris, one of our swings, debuted some new costumes! We were all so excited to see them! Each "Chorus Girl" is a different color (I'm an avocado-y/lime green); Shina is bright orange. All our costumes are stunning and her new ones are no exception. Also, the color looks amazing on her.
Sunday I went to brunch with Natalie and said goodbye to her. It was such a treat to have her stay with me and I miss her already (Radley does too).
A little excitement at the show was that Matthew (Broderick)'s two little girls, along with SJP (yes you read that right), were at the show. Their 3 year old twins could not be cuter; but I have to say, all of the "Nice Work" offspring are freaking adorable. I get really excited every time I notice a stroller or hear a tiny person's voice coming from the hallway.
Anyway, I got through the show, meditated and walked up to Shetler Studios to have a rehearsal with my scene partner for acting class.
Afterward, Dom, my boyfriend, met me and we went downtown to the San Gennaro Festival in Little Italy. It was awesome! I thought since it was a Sunday night it would be sort of quiet but I couldn't have been more wrong. It was packed! So, like the good Italian kids that we are, Dom and I ate our way through the festival. Meatballs, stuffed shells, and cannolis made the menu; and it was delicious! We went home full and very happy.
Monday I ran some errands, saw the movie Hope Springs (I love Meryl as much as anyone, but woof, that movie was depressing 90% of the time) and I met Dom for some dinner.
Tuesday I had my acting class in the morning, rested at home for a little and went to the show! Also, we got an email saying that WNYC's "Soundcheck" radio program partnered with our show to help promote the launch of our new cast album. As part of the promotion, WNYC has been granted a one-week exclusive to stream the entire album on their website through next Tuesday. So check it out!!! I know I'm slightly biased but it truly sounds wonderful!
