I was 18. It was June 12, 2003 and I saw the goddess known as Bernadette Peters in Gypsy.

Broadway virginity... 14. Wicked. Last Christmas. West end virginty, oh, I don't know, 2? Less? And the amazing thing was I sat still, and watched. Not winging like those really annoying babies who always seem to sit about a row or two directly behind you.
The rain we knew is a thing of the past -
deep-delving, dark, deliberate you would say
browsing on spire and bogland; but today
our sky-blue slates are steaming in the sun,
our yachts tinkling and dancing in the bay
like racehorses. We contemplate at last
shining windows, a future forbidden to no one.

Four, with Beauty and the Beast. I think it was back in 1996.

8 or 9, not sure. According to my dad, it was either "Meet Me in St Louis" or *shudder* "Cats"

The one I was at at the age of 2 was actually Cats as well I think, though Les Mis was probably soon after. I was a very weird toddler, because I actually loved Les Mis, even then. Though I had no idea at the time what was going on.

You're reminding me of people you hear at the movies asking questions every ten seconds, "Who is that? Why is that guy walking down the street? Who's that lady coming up to him? Uh-oh, why did that car go by? Why is it so dark in this theater?" - FindingNamo on strummergirl

"If artists were machines, then I'm just a different kind of machine...I'd probably be a toaster. Actually, I'd be a toaster oven because they're more versatile. And I like making grilled cheese" -Regina Spektor

"That's, like, twelve shows! ...Or seven." -Crazy SA Fangirl

"They say that just being relaxed is the most important thing [in acting]. I take that to another level, I think kinda like yawning and...like being partially asleep onstage is also good, but whatever." - Sherie Rene Scott

5 with Beauty and the Beast.
At an understandable age, though, I was 12 when I lost my V-Card.

5 and it was a LONG time ago -- though sometime after "Our American Cousin." I still remember it quite well and apparently I not only sat still and never fidgeted, I was so riveted I barely blinked.

I'm pretty sure it was Beauty and the Beast when I was 3. However, I wasn't as well behaved as the rest of you folks. My sister and I were crying so we left at intermission.
