I had a friggin' BLAST at "Sideshow." It was my 3rd time seeing it. I sat in the front row, & it was an AMAZING viewpoint. I really got to see all the action, their feet, their facial expressions, etc. I got a lot more emotional, cause I could actually see the tears in their eyes, running down their faces, & just felt a lot closer to the emotion. I definitely got more emotional than I had the other two times. I tend to be a sympathy crier. Reggie enjoyed the hell out of it. He was so thankful that I "made" him go. And to the other side of me was two gay guys who were really cool. The one furthest from me, Matt, had seen the show 10 times, & had made friends with the cast. Manoah, who sat next to me, was very handsome & friendly, & had seen it about 5 times. We bonded right away. He & I both got really excited when Terry & Buddy sat right at our feet during one scene! On the other side of Matt was ANOTHER guy named Matt, who looked JUST like Apollo Anton Ohno...the speed skater from the Olympics. I was so stoked, cause I just KNEW it was him. He looked JUST like him, especially from the side. Same hair, same height, same little fuzz on his chin. I eventually decided it was NOT him though, cause his thighs weren't big enough! I did pop over during intermission to talk to him though, & he & his friend said he gets told he looks like Apollo ALL the time. After the show, I hugged my friend Rob, AND I got a picture with all the leads. They were all so nice about it. I got a picture with "Daisy," who was really cool...."Violet," who spun me around to put me on her right side, since she is "used to that" (the show is about Siamese twins, & Violet attached to Daisy by her right hip).....I took a pic with "The Boss," who actually directed Reggie in "Secret Garden," so they knew each other. I got a pic with "Terry," "Buddy" (woooo-hoooo!), the "Fortune Teller" (Heather...she is SO cool!), "Jake," & a few chorus people. I also took a pic with a guy named Patrick who was in "Princess Diaries" & "Pretty Woman." Garry Marshall puts him in all his movies, so I went up to tell him that I was friends with Garry, & was in "Princess Diaries" with him. He was really cool, & we took a picture for Garry, pointing at each other. Very cute. Manoah followed me around playing photographer, & everyone was really gracious about this little girl running around taking pictures like a groupie. According to the cast, morale was really up last night. The guy who plays "Jake" was not able to do the extension. So they hired another guy....and apparently, he was awful. So after Friday night's performance, he was fired, & they got the original Jake back for the final two performances. Everyone was so happy to have him back that energy was really up. It was a GREAT show, & I really liked everyone I met. I felt so elated when I left!
