WRITING TO ENSEMBLE?#0
Posted: 4/8/04 at 6:29pm
I know a lot of people write to the "major" players on shows, but has anyone written to ensemble members? I want to write to a few of them, but i don't know if it would seem weird or something. what should i do?

Me and "Joizey" wrote Derrick Williams, ensemble member of WICKED, and either we really freaked him out or he's just to busy to write back to broadway obsessed teens. Its been four months and no word. re: re: writing to ensemble?

would it be weird that i'm a girl and i'm writing to a girl? i think most people write to people of the opposite sex. and yes i'll make sure i dont sound weird, just writing to say what a great performance she did since i didnt see her at the stage door re: re: re: re: writing to ensemble?

Don't worry too much. The ensemble members tend to LOVE it when people write to them, since they're so often overlooked.

Ensemble is actually really good to write to. I've gotten some responses- some people actually asking me to write back. Others who I write back and forth with...just write letters- the point isn't to get something back anyways- its to let them know how much you appreciated their performance. If you get something back..thats great- and if you don't, thats great too!

no. just because you are female and admire a female performer doesnt mean you are a lesbian. i love judy garland and it doesnt mean that i am IN LOVE with her.
