Occupation: Pre-Kindergarten teacher
Profile: My name is Roman. I'm 57 years of age, born on November 11, 1961 and a native born Texan. I first saw Miss Patti in concert at the Paramount Theatre (Austin) in 1996. I finally got to meet her in person at the same theatre in November 2000. I've met her also in Dallas (2001), San Francisco(July 2001: spoke with her briefly as she left in her limousine).. met her backstage in Houston, Texas (November 2003), saw her perform in "Regina" in March 2005 in D.C. and last saw her in her dressing room at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre (March 2006) following her performance in "Sweeny." Most recently, I traveled to NYC in May 2007 to see "Avenue Q", "Drowsy Chaperone", "A Chorus Line" and saw the fabulous Angela Lansbury in "Deuce." Both Angela and Marian Seldes were delightful at the stage door. Most recently, I had the wonderful chance to see Miss Patti backstage in Dallas (on January 22, 2008) when she performed her "Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda" show on the SMU campus. She was a "doll." Next stop, NYC.. and "Gypsy" on June 10, 2008. I most recently saw Miss Patti in San Antonio, Texas after her "An Evening With Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin". She is coming to Austin in March 2010. I have my tickets.
During my last trip to NYC in June 2010, I saw: "La Cage Aux Folles, "Addams Family" and "Dietrich and Chevalier." In March 2011, I saw "Lombardi", "Priscilla Queen of the Desert", "Wicked" and "Chicago." I can safely say that "Chicago" is now my FAVORITE musical. I just saw Terra McLeod (Velma) and Tracy Shayne (Roxie) in the national tour of "Chicago" in Fort Worth, TX (6 18 2011). Then, I saw "Chicago" once more the following weekend in Houston. Now, "Chicago" is my favorite musical. I saw: "Chicago" on June 8, 2013; "The Nance" on Sat. June 9th and also "Pippin." Finally, I saw "Vanya, Sonia, Masha and Spike" on Sun. June 10, 2013. I LOVED Pippin. It was so magical!

This board in the old days  Oct 3 2020, 08:06:12 AM

There are certain names that stick in my mind from the "old days."  Reginald T is one.  CapNHook is another.  From time to time, I've locked horns with critics.  I found a way to deal with them.  I've used the ignore feature from time to time.  But if I have to go back and reflect on a particular person who is unforgettable (for all the right reasons), that would be MargoChanning, without a doubt.  It's kind of interesting that most of

https://broadwayplus.com/artists/   I happened to find that Bianca Marroquin is associated with BroadwayPlus.  It lists artists who offer private coaching, as well as video shout outs (like a Broadway version of Cameo?)  It's worth looking into.

Would you pay extra to stage door  Aug 28 2020, 07:50:09 PM

It's a moot point.  The reason for not having is to protect the health of the artist and the audience member / fan.  Anything else is wishful thinking.  If anything I would be absolutely thrilled to have Broadway open again.  That in itself would be rewarding.

How was Rita Moreno in Sunset Blv.?  Aug 15 2020, 08:37:33 PM

I thought it was really weird that most of the replies in this thread were about other Normas and not Moreno.  Bettyboy, what year was it when you saw Rita Moreno with that orchestra?
