Who is the nicest person to meet?

Who is the one person you never want to encounter, regardless of the day?
What good is a life, With no one to share, The light of the moon, The honor of a swear?

Carol "Divabitch" Kane was positively EVIL. She snuck out the stagedoor wearing a huge hat and glasses and actually backed into someone's car (and a pole) trying to get away, all while screaming, "MOVE! MOVE!"

I am not joking. I can see the point of sneaking out when you don't want to sign for people, but there's a thing called "tact".
That's the sorrowful precis. It's very messy.

Luba Mason is incredibly nice to meet. As for a big star, Brooke Shields is a doll. And Brenda Braxton is also super nice.

I met the entire cast of Ave Q at the stage door and they were all so sweet. John posed for several pictures, and even recommended a re-take when he tought his eyes were closed in one.
It was a great experience after a great show!

Luba Mason and Susan Stroman are absolute dolls.

I haven't exactly found Raul Esparza to be too friendly.

What's worse was that not only is she nasty, but she can't sing...or dance...or act. Hmm.

Procrastination calls; I'll bite.

I know like 2987394739 people are going to say this, but that's because it's true. Anthony Rapp. Not even just the nicest *actor*, but one of the nicest people you will ever come across, regardless of profession, or anything else. The entire OBC of Avenue Q, Michael Arden, Julia Murney, Lisa Bresica, Adam Pascal (very, very high on my list, anyway), Jesse Martin, Daphne Rubin-Vega, Wilson Heredia, Greg Jbara, Erin Dilly, Patrick Wilson, Kevin Cahoon, and Chip Zien. I've found Raul to be extremely friendly, but sometmes shyness comes off as standoffishness, I think. Not that he can't be a bitch.

I can't say I've ever had a *bad* experience, though.

Well, that took up three minutes. re: Nicest & Worse

Best: Stephanie J. Block, Jenna Leigh Green, Derrick Williams, Maria Eberline.

Granted, they were the only ones I have met but were very nice and accomodating.

Stephanie J Block: I am!

Nicest: Brooke Shields, Melissa Errico, Kathy Griffin, Greg Edelman and Lisa Brecia.
Worse: Christina Applegate...there were about 5 people at the stage door and she still wouldn't take a picture with me. And Oprah Winfrey was actually really nice but she didn't want to take pictures with anyone but in her case it was understandable because the whole theatre was crazy about her.

When I saw DRS in Ocotber, Dennis Parlato was the understudy for John Lithgow and he was absolutely rude. He barely signed an autograph and acted like he was too important for everyone, when only my brother and I were there.
Nicest-- Tim Martin Gleason, ah i forget her name but she is from Avenue Q and she is blond, Norbert Leo Butz, Sara Gettelfinger, Laura Marie Duncan, Gregory Jbara, Sherie Rene Scott, Megan Hilty, Shoshana Bean, Kevin Meany, and John Lithgow.

Ha I actually have a funny John Lithgow story. A week before I went to see DRS, I saw John Lithgow on the Tony Danza Show. At the Stage Door I was so starstruck, that I blurted out "I SAW YOU ON THE TONY DANZA SHOW LAST WEEK!!!!!!"! He stared at me, then muttered "that's a good show", gave me a weird look, and walked away. Haha.
Oh, and when I went to see DRS the second time, there were 4 people at the stage door including my brother and me. And I was 2 minutes late for catching Norbert. I don't think I will ever forgive myself for missing him. I don't think that the stage door is ever that empty. Ah, I still kick myself whenever I think about that.

Idina is extremely sweet when people aren't screaming down her face. She definitely moved up a notch in my book!

The whole cast of THE PILLOWMAN was fantastic!

I really love the THE COLOR PURPLE cast. They are great!

Greg Jbara is one of the kindest and most generous people I have ever met - anywhere.

Oh yes - he can act and sing and dance too!

I second the Anthony Rapp.

I had a somewhat bad experience with Nathan Lane when I was about 8, but it wasn't at a stage door.
I recognize the addiction to being alive.

Bruce Vilanch and Erin Dilly and Kevin Cahoon were definetly the nicest to me!

Saycon Sengbloh was the nicest ever to me. I e-mailed her and stuff like that and when I met her she screamed and hugged me. Then she performed "The Wizard and I" in Bryant Park, and at the end said "That was for you Danny!" So totally sang a song for me! I feel amazing when I think about it, and I was completely in shock when she did it, I love her!!

GREG JBARA is seriously the nicest person ALIVE. No joke. He's the type of person that you feel lucky to meet.

Jeff Goldblum was soo funny and really LOVES to chat, lol.
