BWW Blog: Sherz Aletaha of Off-Broadway's DISASTER! - Calm Down, Mother Nature!


Oh look, another snow storm. Awesome. If someone could kindly give Mother Nature some Midol and a chocolate bar, I'd really appreciate it because her PMS is getting obnoxious. I started my day by looking up vacations in tropical locations since I'm about to pull my hair out. If you are rich and feel bad for me, please feel free to sponsor my trip to Miami or Puerto Rico. You can come too! I'll tell you sassy stories and sing you showtunes in exchange. Everybody wins.

Alright, I'm done bitching. Let's talk Disaster! Judy Gold made her debut as Shirley, and holy poop, she's hilarious!!! Mondaynight was her first show and for the majority of the cast it was our first time seeing her in action (only the people she interacts with the most were called for her put in rehearsal). There were multiple times where I had to cover my mouth with my hands to stop myself from laughing. I tried to make it look like I was shocked and/or concerned and if any of the audience members happened to be paying attention to me at that exact moment in time, I'm sure they thought I was terrible "over actor."

On Tuesday night, my Bravo dreams came true. Stacey Oristano was the guest bartender on "Watch What Happens Live" with Andy Cohen. Y'all, TV is fancy! Our theater doubles as a soup kitchen (I'm 100% serious right now), so it's really easy to impress me when it comes to "nice things." They sent a gorgeous car to pick us up at the theater, and then the second we walked into the building, we were greeted by friendly faces and adult beverages. Henry Winkler and Andrew Rannells were also on the show and I don't think they could be more charming! Stacey looked gorgeous and was super sassy when Andy, who is a Friday Night Lights super fan, asked her questions about the show. My whole family is addicted to Bravo (clearly, we enjoy classy and educational programming), and I heard from my cousin the next day that when she watched the show, she could hear me cackling in the audience the entire time.

Alright my little Valentine's, it's time to wrap things up. We were supposed to perform at Broadway Sessions tonight but this stupid weather has shut that down! The wonderful Ben Cameron is working on an alternative date so I'll keep you posted on when we'll be heading to the Beechman for some sassy singing. Stay safe and warm, unless you live on the west coast. In that case, go sit by the pool and know that I hate you just a tiny bit. Just kidding, I could never hate you, you're perfect. Yeah, you! Now go get your tan on.

How excited was I to be at Watch What Happens Live? This excited.
