Last year when my sister-in-law was here we saw Wicked on Broadway (and John Stamos saw it with us). I still think it's one of my all-time favorite shows. I wasn't sure how I was going to top the experience of sitting two rows in front of Uncle Jessie and seeing a really spectacular show.
I ended up getting second-row seats to Curtains for a great price by using a Playbill.com discount code. At first we thought that we might be too close, but we were actually in a great spot to see everything, including a little spittle from overarticulated dialogue and rippling muscles from the strenuous dance moves.
The show was a lot of fun--to watch, and apparently to perform.
After the show was over, we fought the crowds to get to the restroom. When we left, I took Dana around to the stage door where the actors exit, and we waited. All of the principals (about nine in all) came out and signed our programs and chatted a bit. Finally, the most well-known actor, due to his TV experience and the fact that he won the Tony for best actor in a musical for 2007 for this role which he originated--David Hyde Pierce--came out. And I took his picture signing Dana's program:
Yes, I topped last year's experience.
What will I have to do next year?
