I saw Deuce when it was playing on Broadway. Meeting Angela Lansbury for the first time was a wonderful experience. She couldn't have been more gracious to her fans at the stage door.
Bringing this post back because I had the best stage door experiences last month:MATILDA - Alison Luff and Lesli Margherita were just awesome. I also got to meet and talk to Rileigh, my Matilda that night, and her mom who were super sweet.FUN HOME - First of all, I had sent Sydney Lucas and Gabby Pizzolo some candy from Chile (where I am from) and a letter back in June telling them I might be seeing the show soon. When I told Gabby my name she said: We were JUST wondering when exactly you were coming! Then she signed some Matilda stuff I had from when she was in the show and was so sweet to me. When I saw Sydney, as soon as I said my name she started screaming: IT'S AMPI, SHE CAME! And asked her dad: "Can you take a picture of us? She sent us a bunch of candy from Chile!" So he took a picture with his own phone. I thought it was awesome they knew who I was!
MAMMA MIA! - I had also sent fanmail to Elena Ricardo, who plays Sophie a few months ago. As soon as I said my name she also knew exactly who I was, and told me it was so cool that I had come from so far away and that she always "brags about my fanmail" and hugged me. Then she told me she was gonna finish signing everyone's playbill and then she'd take me backstage! I was not expecting that at all! She showed me around and we took a picture on the stage, it was perfect, she was incredibly sweet to me. She said it was the least she could do for me.
These experiences were the highlight of my trip!
