I saw Joe Mantello on the 1/9 the day after Wicked opened, and he was sitting across from someone reading the Times review...he was looking none too happy! I swear, I thought his eyes were going to bulge out of his head!

I think you mean, Joe Allen's, bwaybelle, not Joan Allen's. (Great restaurant, and great actress, respectively, by the way.)

No, I didn't talk to her when I saw her on the street, I don't like bothering people when they are on their off-time. I spoke with her last November when I stood at the stage door for Gypsy- it was freezing cold that night, and only 4 of us stayed to talk to her and take pictures, so she chatted for a couple minutes then.

I saw Ann Harada in August telling someone that she was pregnant, but it was before it was ever talked about on the board so I don't know if it was out in the open yet. The same day I saw Adam Pascal walking to the theater. I also saw Barrett Foa in Times Square and Matt Caplan on 8th Ave after a show. I also saw Nancy Anderson(ex-Helen in Wonderful Town) at a Duene Reade on the upper west side a few months ago. Oh, and I saw Audra McDonald walking to Raisin, and Rebecca Luker walking around Lincoln Center, as well as Stephen Schwartz. I think that us all.

Neil Patrick Harris at a performance of Brooklyn, John Tartaglia telling some kind of crazy story on the street, Christopher Sieber after bway on bway 2002 (giving us a REALLY strange look because we were dancing in front of the theater for into the woods).
Don't make me brag. ;)

Last night I saw The star of the Wonder Years at Cardinal A Sin Deposed. He lost weight and looks years younger. He also smiled at me.
He reminds me of my father. They look so much alike. It is eerie.
He played the father on the Wonder Years.
