SOOOOOOOOO, I saw "Xanadu" last night, but becuase of the rain I decided to go back today after the matinee to get my poster signed. I got there around 4:15, knowing the show let out around 4:30ish, and all the ushers were outside frantically talking about someone in the house that was going to be "ejected". Then I hear the house manager say "Well, we should call the cops just in case he gets hostile." About 5 minutes later, 2 cops show up and stand outside the stage door (also where the on-stage audience leaves from) with the house manager and the head of security. Finally the show lets out, and a guy is escourted out of the stage door/on stage seats door by the head of security and gets handcuffed by the two cops. They take him away as he goes on about how "if he wants to pay to see a Broadway show, he should be able to" and that "the FBI is doing an investigation on corrrupt NYPD cops"... ANYWAY! It turns out he had been stalking Kerry Bulter, and it seems he had been there 8 times in the past 2 weeks or something. They said he also stalked Laura Bell Bundy for a while. (I guess he has something for blonde Broadway gals)

Was anyone at the show today?? Anyone know anymore info??

Holy Crap!
He's a faker, and you've been taken in by his con. And in doing so, you are enabling him. He is doing more damage to aspergers than papa's words ever could. -Chane/Liverpool on me having asperger syndrome.

If stalkers could cause stage seats to be done away with, Spring Awakening's would be long gone by now.
I know you. I know you. I know you.

If I only I had gone one day later, I would have been there! Either way, wow, poor Kerry.

If someone lunges at an actor from the onstage seats then it is a problem.

Security issues is the reason why Madonna didn't replace Natasha Richardson in the recent revival of CABARET. Negotiations with Madonna were finalized but full security couldn't be guaranteed therefore Madonna chose to not take the job. Jennifer Jason Leigh ended-up getting the gig.

Brooke Shields has her own security team when she's working on Broadway. They've been with her since her GREASE! days all the way up until CHICAGO. I've been told that they are seated with the audience but in the aisle seats a few rows from the stage. There's never been a situation, fortunately.

It must not have been TOO bad if they actually waited until the end of the show to arrest him. Wonder what he was doing, though.

Eh, I think it was "he had been there 8 times in the past 2 weeks or something."
So he only saw it 8 times. About 4 times a week.

After they took him away, Kerry (and everyone else) came out and signed and were very nice. The Helen Hayes security guard walked Kerry to the subway. She seemed a little nervous, but it was fine.

That is so, so disturbing. But I'm sure it happens more often than people hear.

He must have actually DONE something to either Kerry or Laura... you cant get arrested for just seeing a show a million times... so there must have been harassment or something involved...
