The Fran Weissler Appreciation Thread.#0
Posted: 9/3/04 at 3:10pm
Isn't this woman FABULOUS? I mean, seriously. This woman IS the ****. This one time at the stage door, I wuz waiting for her cuz she's SO AMAZING... I SO TOTALLY didn't know what to say to her... haha. So I wuz like... "OMG, IT'S FRAN WEISSLER!!!" and she looked at me and smiled. OMG, she totally smiled at me!!!

Then I totally accidentally touched her boob... OOPS! And she said, "Oh, I have to go find another bra." I waited for three hours and she never came back. Oh, well... I hear she's really super shy, tho, so that's okay. I'm really shy, too, so I totally understand. Hehe. I went back the next day and waited for her to come out. I finally got her to sign my playbill but I didn't get to talk to her much cuz she had a bunch of big men in black suits surrounding her. It's okay, tho, cuz then a week later I sent her a letter to her apartment along with a new bra. I never heard back from her but that's okay cuz I know she's super busy.

Do any of you guys have Fran stories?? She's my favorite producer EVA. No one is better cuz I said so!!!!!! (And if you diss her I'll hunt you down... haha)


I LOOOOOOOOOOOVE FRAN WEISSLER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*gasp* NO... I just think we should start TRULY appreciating the people who make such WONDERFUL theatre HAPPEN. You know what I mean???

I ask you, WHERE would we be without the Roxie of Melanie Griffith or the Rizzos of Rosie O'Donnell and Brooke Shields in this world??? Hmmm?

hmmmm - that is a good point, etoile, but there are people I've worked with and for before who I wouldn't work for again if you paid me more money than God...one who's name just flashed across the top of this page of links and gave me the chills...but don't ask who - I don't want to spread negative gossip...

Because I'm coming to see my sweetie and I needed to let her know since she blocked my number.

And CJR, will you be dancing around the Shubert tomorrow? I might stop by and say hi.

I typed a whole bunch of stuff and deleted it -- not because I agree with etoile regarding biting the hand that feeds but because I'm trying to follow flit's admonition to be nice.

Fran is not good people. Let me leave it at that.

Fran Weissler and her co-conspiritor Barry, are the scum of the earth. If you have never worked for them, and I have, then you have no idea. I actually hope you're some kind of "friend" of theirs so this will get back to them.

They are unwanted and unnecessary people and producers and cannot hold a candle to other top producers of today and the past. The two of them and their little assassin Alecia deserve nothing.

I am not normally this vehement about people, quite willing to give the benefit of the doubt, but Fran and Barry are truly awful people and now none of you who read this cannot say you haven't been warned.

Gee, do you think I don't like them?

WOSQ - My first job in the theater was in their office. I was there for two years. I believed they were the worst people on earth too...till I spent 10 more years working for other producers, agents, managers, and actors who were at least as evil. Barry and Fran just get all the PR. Believe me, there are plenty more just like them.
