We had such a fantabulous weekend in New York City! It was filled with lots of shows and lots of friends.
Saturday morning, we got in on the red eye from L.A. There was no time for napping as we met up with Larry and for some brunch - frozen yogurt! - and our first of four shows.
Spring Awakening wasn't exactly our cup of tea, but Weeds hottie Hunter Parrish was great in it and he sure is purdy to look at!
The show felt like an off-Broadway production that had somehow managed to sneak onto Broadway.
We appreciate that it was trying to be different, but the music of Duncan Sheik doesn't translate very well to Broadway.
After Spring Awakening, we met up with Delta and had an early dinner at our favoritest restaurant in Manhattan, which we want to keep our little secret.
After din din, we took Miz Goodrem to see the one and only Patti LuPone in Gypsy.
Wow! Wow! Wow!
We were blown away!!!
Both Delta and Perezzers loved loved LOVED the production!
We had never seen Gypsy before, and we loved it. And we had never had the pleasure to see Patti LuPone in a musical before - though we did catch her in a Mamet play in the late '90s during our NYU days.
Watching Patti play Rose is something special. She won the Tony for her portrayal and deservedly so. She owns that stage!
Everyone was great in it, and we really want to see the show again soon.
La LuPone was so kind and gracious when we met her after the curtain call. She even had us sign her guest book!
After Gypsy, we met up with Furey and were very very lucky enough to catch the final performance of the extended run of Perez Hilton Saves The Universe.
We hadn't told them we were coming. We wanted to surprise the cast and crew.
It was such a surreal experience watching the show, which….didn't suck. It didn't suck at all. It actually was super fucking awesome!
We were so impressed with the production and the performers.
The show was very well written, had great music, clever lyrics, awesome costumes, choreography, and everything. It was big, fun and we're thrilled we were able to watch it!
After the show, we went out for drinks withe the cast and creators and had a very very late night. A great night.
Sunday saw no rest for us either, as we went to see Mary Poppins - cute but no Lion King - and then met up for dinner with Drew, Aimee and Mackie.
That was followed by some drinkies at their weekly soiree at the Hiro Ballroom. And then early Monday morning we were back to work, appearing on the CW11.
What a great weekend. And what a great week we have ahead of us.
We LOVE New York!
