Photo Flash: Saturday Intermission Pics, June 23 - PRISCILLA's Last SIP, West End's GHOST and More!
It's Saturday, and that means it's time for BroadwayWorld's "Saturday Intermission Pics" round-up!
Do you ever wonder what your favorite Broadway, Off-Broadway, National Tour and regional stars are doing during intermission? Thanks to NEWSIES' Andrew Keenan-Bolger (@KeenanBlogger) and EVITA's Max von Essen (@MaxizPad), dedicated performers and excited fans, now you can see for yourself. Three years ago, Keenan-Bolger, then in Mary Poppins, and Max von Essen, then in Xanadu, started the trend. And to the delight of Broadway fanatics across the globe, this year the pair has revived the ritual—to tag an image with the hashtag #SIP on Twitter during intermission.
Andrew Keenan-Bolger(@KeenanBlogger) Tweeted today, June 23: "It's Saturday so that means Saturday Intermission Pics! Grab a cam at intermish and tag it #SIP"
Max von Essen chimed in: "Saturday Intermission Pics have gone global. If you're in a show or seeing a show today, take a pic @ intermish & tag it #SIP"
This will be regular participants Priscilla, Queen of the Desert's Nick Adams, Ellyn Marsh and company's final SIP before the show closes on Broadway tomorrow, and the cast of Godspell prepares for its June 24 closing on the Great White Way as well. We wish them well!
