| Who's on as Hannigan this week? Jul 16
2013, 11:40:21 PM|
Danette Holden was on as Hannigan for tonight's performance, as per a cast member's Instagram. No word on how she was, although I expect she was great because I've seen her in other shows and enjoyed her.

The view was actually really nice! I could see the lit-up colored boxed that spell out MATILDA, high above the stage, perfectly. It was basically like standing in the center of the orchestra, just a bit further back. You don't miss anything, really. Another plus is that so many scenes have the actors entering and exiting from the back of the house, so they walk past the SRO slots and you can get a glimpse of them up close for a second or two. I almost got whipped with a jacket after "Revolting C

I got a standing room ticket for this past Saturday evening's performance. I got to the box office at 11:00 am and was told that the show was not yet sold out, but to check back later and I could get a ticket. I was planning on spending all day in Shubert Alley for Broadway Barks, so I went back in every hour or so to check it the show had sold out. When I went at 3:30pm, I was able to purchase the first standing room ticket for the evening performance (behind the left orchestra, slot 3, which i

I made a chocolate cake for "Matilda" since they're probably going to sweep all the categories they're nominated in. Devil's food cake, chocolate icing, and then I wrote the logo in blue icing that I made out of vanilla icing and blue food coloring.
I added a link to a photo of the cake on my Instagram account if y'all want to check it out. Warning...I have the cake decorating skills of a llama.
| Which show have you seen the most number of times? May 27
2013, 08:05:08 PM|
I've seen "Annie" over 30 times, but that's including Broadway (6x for the current revival and 1 for the last revival), tours, regional, and community theatre productions.
I saw "Spelling Bee" 11x on Broadway and once at a school, "Godspell" 11x on Broadway, "Next to Normal" 7x on Broadway, and "Shrek" 6x on Broadway.
Other shows I've seen 2x or 3x each, but the ones I mentioned up top are the ones I've seen the most.

The majority of the adult cast leave through a separate entrance a bit down the street from the actual stagedoor. I found that one out on accident and got to meet Anthony Warlow after last Thursday night's show.

2013, 11:19:19 PM|
When I saw the show on April 20th, Christine Pedi came out of the regular stagedoor. I stopped her and asked if she could sign my Playbill, which she did. I complimented her on her performance and she seemed really grateful to be complimented and asked to sign. A few people standing around us realized who she was and also asked her to sign their Playbills, which she did. Paige Davis is also one to stop if you see her come out of the main door. She's incredibly nice and really gracious to everyon

According to one of the merch girls at the theatre this past Saturday, the CD will still be available at the theatre sometime in May.
| Going to shows alone Apr 21
2013, 10:04:43 PM|
I go to shows by myself all the time (probably 95% of the shows I've see, I've been alone). I find it easier to concentrate on the action onstage, and I can do my own thing before and after without anyone arguing that they don't want to do anything I had planned. Also, it's nice to talk to the people around me before the show and during intermission. Just yesterday, I saw CHICAGO alone, then I made friends with a girl at the ANNIE lottery and we sat next to each other and wound up exchanging co

Paige Davis is returning to the role of Roxie this Thursday for six weeks only, by the way. I already have a ticket for Saturday's matinee.

theatrefan, you need to check your attitude. You asked a question and Clyde answered it honestly. No need to be rude to someone helping you out.

I bought a full price orchestra ticket for the performance on the 24th after finding out via Anne L. Nathan's twitter that Cristin, Elizabeth, and Will would be leaving, and now I'm hoping Steve goes on for his final show. I'd hate to go and not see him perform.

I think Lilla is too big to play YC now, let alone play the role next year when she'll be close to 13. Isn't YC supposed to be around 8 or 9? Emily Rosenfeld would be perfect as YC, she's almost 9, already really tiny, and could stay with the show for a while.

I'm going into the city tomorrow from Suffolk County and have a room booked at the Milford Plaza tomorrow night. My question is, is the LIRR shut down? I didn't see anything online just now when I searched on Google and the LIRR website. I have tickets to two shows and don't want to miss them.

Casey is the dog that had surgery, as shown in the Search For Sandy documentary, so he could be having health issues again. Or it could be a number of things, as everyone has stated above. He might just not want to perform at all.

The Morgan James as Regina thing started out as a joke, but I figured if she can bop around onstage for 2 1/2 in Godspell acting like a 12 year old, she can certainly pull off look 17. Plus, she's short enough, and she kind of has a mean girl face when she's not smiling.
