Burlesque?

Has anyone ever heard of Burlesque: From G-Flat to G-String?  I'm thinking of auditioning for it, but I have no idea what it's about (other than what the title somewhat implies), so if anyone could give me an idea it'd be GREAT!

Thanks in advance.

Jeffrey Kuhn

So, I'm obsessed with Jeffrey Kuhn (Boq in Wicked; Zangara in Assassins; currently Bedevere in Spamalot). I met him a few times while he was doing a show here in Toronto, and thought I'd post the photos here 'cause they're cute.

Hi everyone!  I'm a new member, I've got a few stagedoor stories to share.  They've all occured off Broadway with Broadway stars, so I guess that counts.  I'm going to NYC the first week of April though, so I shall be sure to take copious amounts of pictures whilst I'm there.

All of my encounters are with various stars of Phantom of the Opera, so they might get a little redundant.  I saw Spamalot a couple of weeks ago but sadly didn't have the time to stagedoor.

Hi everyone, I'm Liz, from Australia. I visited America and Broadway for the first time last August and saw Phantom, Spamalot, Wicked, The Proudcers & Chicago. I loved every minute and wish I could have stayed longer.

Anyway, I am slightly cheating here but I didn't get to see Tim Curry on Broadway in Spamalot. I did however get to see and meet him in London after seeing a preview of Spamalot there! I was stoked! I also met Christopher Sieber, the original Sir Galahad in Spamalot:

I went to Jonathan Pryce and Norbert Leo Butz's last performance of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (on July 16th, 2006). Me and my friend had front row seats. We got there at 12 and the show started at 3, so we got lunch then decided to go to the stage door at 2. My friend had won Greg Jbara's big pencil from an auction so we had to claim it there anyway. We had a card for Sherie Rene Scott, and cards and flowers for Greg Jbara, Norbert Leo Butz, and Jonathan Pryce. At the stage door, we ended up meeting all four of them! Norbert even hugged us both! Our cards played music, and Jonathan Pryce came out the stage door after reading his and did a little jig to the music from his card for us. Greg Jbara was so happy that my friend bid on the big pencil for charity that he let us come and have our pictures taken with him onstage:



Because we had front row seats, the actors even interacted with us during the show. Jonathan Pryce threw "Ruprecht's" imaginary penis at us! At the end, we threw our flowers onstage and nearly tripped Jonathan Pryce and Norbert Leo Butz, but they seemed to appreciate them anyway. It was the best day ever!

On April 11th, I met most of the cast of Sweeney Todd!!! It was amazing!!! When I met Manoel at the stage door he said he remembered me from the second row!!! Then, I met PATTI and MICHAEL. I drew a picture of them and they loved it! I forgot to ask Patti to sign it, so I went by the theatre the next day. People at the stage door took it for her to sign, but she didn't have a chance. Disappointing, but to preserve the picture while they had it, they put in the folder that holds the Beadle's music. Then they gave it to me!!! SO AWESOME!!!

NYC!!

ok, so i was in the city for 3 (well, 2 full) days last weekend. i had an amazing time, my sister and i got so very, very lucky.

first, we tried the DRS lotto. two friends of mine helped us out, too. they drew my sister's name. PLUS, it was sherie's 3rd-to-last. PLUS, laura marie duncan was going to go on as muriel
pictures of the drs stage door -- it was rainingCollapse )

then we ran over to my sister's friend's birthday party, which was right across from the gershwin. since it was so close, we decided to try to lotto that, too. see if we could stay 3 for 3. unfortunately, by the time we got there, there were about 20 people waiting in line to put their names in, not to mention the 150 people already there. we didn't know there was a line, so we accidentally jumped it, but then got sent to the back. after they read the rules for the lotto, they started reading names. about 3rd to last, they read my sister's name. we were in shock. it was totally for fun, we weren't planning on winning. after being amazed by the show front row, we went to the stage door.
oh how funCollapse )

the reason why the pictures are so close is because my sister was standing so close to us... we had no room to back up... but they're still so special to me

Happy New Year, all! (I realized no one has posted since last year)

Letting y'all know that I will be in NYC next weekend, and that I plan on seeing at least one broadway show. Meaning at least one stage door. We plan on seeing DRS, so we're gonna rush it, if we don't win, we're gonna try to get seats for that show, anyway. And if not, we'll see another show (maybe Phantom, and say hi to people who know Tim). We're also gonna try for the Wicked rush, meaning if we win, pictures of Eden and Megs! :o)

And, for those of you who would like to see a picture of Flo, Tim's wife (my chior director), she's my icon. For a while, up until about '92 or '93 or '94, she played Fantine in Les Mis. I can't believe I found this picture!

HUGE post!

sorry guys! i didn't realize i didn't post my experience from teh 10th, yet, so here's both stage door stories, within 8 days of each other. the following are taken directly from my LJ

overall, the music was REALLY upbeat, really jazz-y... but good.
The set... i'm impressed w/ what they did w/ the bushnell. small stage, huge set. nice job.
The actors... really really good for a touring cast, and for, like, 5 replacements.
best... part... well, before it. the best part i'm leaving openCollapse )so we walk back to the parking lot, and someone is pulling out. who is it? JENNA. and what does she do? SHE WAVES TO US. like, she had this HUGE smile on while looking out her window and waving to us. dad and i were seriously the ONLY people @ the SD that weren't there for the tours. so i guess jenna wsa touched? that was, like, the best part... however, i forgot to give her her bracelet!! so dad had this idea. i'm going to mail it to her this week, along with our picture (it's SO cute! check it out!), and then i'll ask her if she got it when i see her on the 18th. :-D
PICTURES! 5... 2 of Emily, 2 of Jenna, 1 of my playbillCollapse )

so that was Dec 10. i sent jenna a letter w/ the bracelet i made for her in it, and i sent stephanie, kendra, and jenna all emails telling them i'd be @ the SD on the 18th, no matter what. jenna replied, which will be key in what was one of the best SD expereiences ever, Dec 18.

so we wander around between buildings for a bit, and we're like "wait... maybe we can catch the last few mins?" so we go over to mortensin (sp?) hall, and they have TVs of the stage. so what do we do? dad and i stand outside, listening through the theatre, watching the TV. now i can OFFICIALLY say i saw SJB perform. :-D so then we go outside, and, ohmigosh, I WASN'T THE ONLY FAN THERE! there were actually lots of others. my favorite were a group of 4 kids who performed their own version of wicked over the summer. so whenever someone would walk out, they would, like, jump 'em. so i heard this story about 4 times. no, wait. 3. ok, before anyone comes out, who sticks her head out? KENDRA. and then she goes back in. i was like "kendra? hi? fan here?" so, anyway, first out is david. he was kinda sneaking by, and i'm all "david? -he turns around- hi. i didn't see you today, but i saw you last week, and you were amazing. would you mind signing this cd for me?" "sure. oh! 'i do! i do!'" "yeah. we actually know tim stella" "really? he lives around here doesn't he?" "yeah. we're going to see him tonight, to sing." "oh well, tell him i say hi!" "sure, no prob!" and we also chatted about 2 CDs i have him on
OHEMGEEDAVIDCollapse )

so then, way to go, jackie, david did the rounds (if i hadn't said anything, he woulda snuck out), and then he leaves. few minutes later, jenna slowly comes out, and one of the kids form the OBYC (original back yard cast, that's what they call themselves) goes "JENNA!" "who said my name?" so EVERYONE crowds around her. and i'm just like "ok, i'll wait. i want more time with her." so she goes around and around and stuff, and then people kind of back away, and i got over to her.
"jenna, i have to say, the message last night made me SO happy"
"aww thank you! i really like the bracelet!"
"you're welcome! you know, i made it for you. i sat down one day and thought to myself 'oh, i kind of wanna make jenna a gift' so i made it for you."
"aww, yeah. i like how it's a pink diamond on green background"
"haha i repeat, i made it for you"
"well, thank you"
"i'm also glad you could make it today. you said you were sick and everything, and i'm disappointed i didn't get to see you today, but i came here to see you again!"
"oh how sweet!"
"yeah. would you mind posing for another picture?"
"no, not at all"
JENNA... again. you can tell she's kinda sick.Collapse )
"thanks so much, jenna!"
"no problem. bye, jackie!"
i just smiled "bye" and just, like, froze. i was the ONLY ONE there that jenna knew on a first-name basis (other than her family, who were @ the end of the SD area), and it just... it took a while to wash over me.

so i'm standing there with dad, and we're freezing, i can barely feel my fingers. people are starting to slowly leave. and, know what? STEPHANIE COMES OUT. *fangirl squeal* ok, so she comes out, and talks SOOO qucikly to everyone. i mean, it was 5:15, there was a show @ 7:30, i mean, seriously? i know she likes her fans and stuff, but it was COLD, man, and she was in a rush and stuff. but she still came out and signed playbills and stuff. i tap the bracelet i shoved in the program. i walk over.
"stephanie? hi, i'm jackie"
"OOH! Jackie! I'm so glad I finally get to meet you!"
"aww, yeah. would you mind signing my program?"
"sure! -signs in her HUGE-ASS autogrpah way- here you go. "
"thanks. look, i made a bracelet for you... it says 'DG' to remind to you always defy gravity."
"oh, how kind. let me put it on! -actually puts on bracelet, but doesn't tie- know what? i'll put in on later. -hugs me-"
"-hugs back- you're so great."
"now, let me get a good look at this... -hold bracelet up in only light there is- oh how pretty! -notices dad taking pictures- want me to pose for one? -flash goes off- NO NOT THAT ONE! DELETE DELETE! here. -poses-"
"thanks. you know, stephanie, i didn't even get to see the show today. i came to the stage door just for you" (which is true. jenna and david were added bonuses.)
know what she does? she starts hitting my arm!! "noo! no you shouldn't have done that! it's too cold!"
bwa. ha. ha.
so then she goes to everyone "i'd love to stay longer, but i have to go inside, eat my eggplant for dinner, and get green again! bye!"
i love stephanie.Collapse )

i know it's huge, but i thought i'd share. :o) please don't take the photos w/out permission

i'm trying to imagine what some people were thinking when i was talking to these 3 on sunday... "wait... she and david know the same person? WHAT?" "how and why does jenna know her name?" "who is this girl, and why does everyone seem to know who she is??? AND SHE'S GETTING A HUG FROM STEPHANIE???" :-D
so yeah. i'm happy.
