Monday noontime randomosity

Opening weekend went very well. As pretty much expected, the show is rather hard on clothes, so I have some repairs to do this week, but nothing horrendous.

Figured the blonde wig would keep kids from confusing me with Ariel, and it does, although I got asked if I knew her. But then yesterday afternoon I heard a little voice pipe up "Is that Aquamarine?" *facepalm* Can't win. But it's fun. I'm terribly amused by how impressed everyone seems to be by my sitting in one spot for half an hour, waving at people, brushing my hair, and occasionally talking to a kid or two who gets up the courage to come talk to me. I'm set on a wagon at the edge of the stage, and there's always that hesitancy people have to approach the stage.

My legs are going to be toned just from sitting there flipping my tail for half an hour before each show. *wince*

Started catching up on about three weeks' worth of TiVo. Much less scary than it would be if all my regular shows weren't in reruns.

Was I the only Broadway fan on the planet who didn't know Chris Sarandon had taken over Signor Naccarelli in The Light in the Piazza? THAT was a double-take...

House (exterior) painting started today. *bounce* I am unreasonably excited by the demise of the pink.

Amusing moment at Saturday night cast party: wandered into the TV room where some folks were watching a concert video, just as the performer hit a pose at the end of a number with her arms outstretched and head flung so far back her face couldn't be seen. I've clearly been watching the Tonys for too many years, because I instantly identified her as Bernadette Peters solely by the too-low strapless dress apparently superglued to ample cleavage.

So very taking the rest of the summer off from commitments other than work and house stuff.

Yay for show! Yay for costumes mostly not falling terribly apart! Yay for leg exercise!

Most of all, yay for recognizing Bernadette by her cleavage. THAT is the sign of a true fan. :-)


It was SO GOOD to see you last week.

Or possibly just of the prominence of the cleavage. The ensuing discussion about adhesives was hilarious. The stage manager came in as she was doing a number sprawled across the top of the piano, and asked what we were watching. To which the guy who plays Tom Thumb replied "Watching Bernadette Peters keep her dress on. We have no idea how."

Not that I don't consider myself a true fan. Although there is that little voice saying "A true fan would remember what she was SINGING."

I remember "Children Will Listen," but the one on the piano? Not clue one...

Bernadette and her cleavage are forces of nature... ;)

We loved the show (Nicky said, on the way out, "That was good!". We missed the first 15 minutes because (1) got detoured away from main road because of accident; (2) who the heck puts the intersection of 59 and Aurora Rd. just one street before 59 and Aurora Ave?!; and (3) a man gave us very wrong directions back to Aurora Ave. Argh!

Anyway. We eventually got there and we had a lot of fun. Costumes looked great!

Oh, I know! :-P I've gotten used to thinking of "North Aurora" and "Aurora" as two different streets, the same way the locals do. But the same thing happened to me the first time I drove down there. And nobody in Naperville seems to think anything of it. It's bizarre.

Glad you enjoyed it! I wasn't feeling so hot on Sunday, and had to gather up all the laundry & such, so I opted out of the lobby meet'n'greet. Didn't realize you were there. :-/

Aquamarine. LOL. That's that movie with that shitty "pop star," Jo-Jo in it. LOL. Never saw it, would probably die if I did. . .

It looked cute enough in the commercials. I didn't know until after it was already out of the theatres that she was anything but another teen startlet. *shrug* But definitely aimed squarely at little girls.
