Janney at the Stage Door#1
Posted: 6/15/09 at 1:24pm
My family and I have tickets for 9 to 5 on saturday at 8pm. Can anyone tell me if Allison Janney signs, takes pictures or even comes out at the stage door after an 8pm show?

Many thanks!
I look forward to an America which will steadily raise the standards of artistic accomplishment and which will steadily enlarge cultural opportunities for all of our citizens. - JFK

I think it depends...I read a post here recently saying that she had not come out one evening, but when I went about two weeks ago, she signed, took photos, and was incredibly kind.

It took her a while, but she came out, signed, took pics, and was uber-friendly and grateful!

Allison is seriously the nicest actor i've encountered at the stage door. I told her how i had just watched drop dead gorgeous that day and she started quoting the film with me. She is a such doll.

She wasn't feeling well last Sat (according to the security guard). and didn't come out.

While I'm sure she was being perfectly reasonable, I love the logic that she's well enough to perform a 2 and a half hour Broadway musical but not to sign autographs.

The show is what she's paid for, not to sign autographs. She only has so many sick days before she will get the big boot.

oh my goodness, iamchanging, I am so jealous. During intermission, my friend and I kept talking about Drop Dead Gorgeous and I really wanted to mention it to Janney at the stagedoor, but I was nervous she'd 1.) not realize the reference or 2.) be like, I'm C.J. from West Wing and you're going to whip out "most smartest" from DDG?

Anyways, awesome story...

it'd be better to whip out "most smartest" than "I got some!"

(I'm kind of obsessed.)


Can we hypothetically cast a Drop Dead Gorgeous musical? Janney obvi has to reprise her role.

Actually Sweetie, if you saw the show Saturday, she would have performed two shows, so that would be five hours while not feeling well. I'm sure she would rather disappoint a few at the stage door and not the 2000 plus that paid to see both shows.

[favorite thing about this movie? Amy Adams got her start in it. whoda thunk?]

I for one am totally in favor of a Drop Dead Gorgeous musical. maybe Lea Michelle as Becky Leeman?

haha, the image of Patti doing Gladys' scenes after the swan explodes or when she holds the chicken place hostage is amazing.

I think if this happened, Christine Ebersole would have to play Annette Atkins.
