Will Chase & Debra Messing
Pippin Opening Night
LET US TALK A WALK DOWN MEMORY LANE AND REMEMBER THAT TIME WILL HAD A CONVERSATION WITH ASHLEY, DAN, JULIE AND I ABOUT DEBRA AND THAT RED SCARF……at lunch. lol
Best day ever. Will and I just kept looking at each other across the table and cracking up over you guys.
As much as it would be nice to keep ALL of my playbills from each time I saw the show, only ONE of them holds a special place with me.The very first time I went and met Will, he signed the first pair of playbills I had (one for myself and one for my best friend, Hayley). The one he signed for me is the one I’m keeping. I’ve already given two of my others away - the one for Hayley and one to my Broadway Secret Santa person.
I don’t need them all. I’d much rather give the rest homes with those who weren’t fortunate enough to get to experience the show and would like a piece of it to hold on to. I have my one special bill and the tickets to the performances I attended - plus a bunch of amazing memories - which are more than enough for me.
So, I have SEVEN (unsigned - because I don’t like to pester nor need to collect autographs at the stage door) Drood playbills to give away! Free of charge - I’ll handle shipping anywhere within the U.S. If you’d like one, either make a comment with this post or leave me an ask/private message and we’ll work out details.
EDIT: That’s it guys! All seven have been claimed and will be sent out within the upcoming week! Sorry to those of you who were still looking to snag one. If I had more to give, they’d be all yours.
Finally, Jessie Mueller and Will Chase as Helena Landless and John Jasper sing the final lovers’ duet, “Perfect Strangers”, at the final performance of The Mystery of Edwin Drood on Broadway on March 10th, 2013.
Still cannot believe it’s over. My cousin and I thoroughly enjoyed the final performance of Drood. It was so emotional and full of fun and more love than any single space could ever contain. So happy to have been there for it. So incredibly sad it’s come to an end so soon. It was really something special.
I don’t think I’ll ever forget any of the performances or experiences with any of the wonderful people involved.
Thank you cast and crew for bringing so much joy with Drood into my life <3
(Also, Andrew Samonsky is totally in the background of my photo with Eric! Dang, I should’ve gotten one WITH him…)
Stephanie J. Block and I after Drood last night.
I was in Brooklyn and decided to go into the city after I was finished there (why not?) and grabbed a rush ticket to the show. Tuesday night has a Theatre Talks session an hour prior to it so I went to that and it was rather interesting. Also caught Will, Stephanie and Janine DiVita (who was going on as Rosa) rehearsing onstage!
Saw Rupert Holmes a handful of times again - he even nodded and waved at me while passing the stage door line.
HOWARD MCGILLIN WAS AT THE SHOW. I SAW HIM. HOWARD FRIGGIN’ MCGILLIN! Needless to say, I internally flipped the hell out. By the time it registered with me, it was too late to say hi. Will got to meet and talk to him backstage for awhile (jealous!) and when he finally came out, he was fanboying pretty hard to me about it after he went through the stage door line. I shared in his excitement. So cool.
