ALL OF THE CREYS

I JUST BOUGHT TICKETS TO BOOK OF MORMON AND HOW TO SUCCEED (with Darren Criss, natch) FOR JANUARY AND I LEGITIMATELY TEARED UP, I HAVE WAITED FOR B.O.M. FOR OVER 10 YEARS.

I might have to bring my old Book of Mormon to have the cast autograph it I JUST MIGHT.

ALSO, EVEN SWEETER: I'm going with flaming_muse IT JUST GETS BETTER. So Jan 9th, any NYC peeps, wanna grab a drink and have fun? BECAUSE OH HEY I'LL BE IN MANHATTAN.

Amazing time in NYC will be amazing! Just be ready for stucky January weather. (As opposed to this bizarre October weather where it's 80+ outside today.)

Ffffff I really want to see Book of Mormon! I'm going to see H2$ at least!

Sucky January weather will be a delight (because I will get to leave it, ahaha) but I do like visiting the cold. Because I get to turn around and head south.

OMG, I know we're new to each other, but this is HUGE for me to go see BoM. Huge. (Um, I'm from one of the older Mormon/polygamous families. I've waited for this since Trey and Matt mentioned it after Cannibal the Musical. SO HAPPY.)

I'm so glad to hear that you get to see H2$! Beginning? Middle? End of his run? I debated on which would be the better time, and we chose Jan 10, he'll have a week to work out kinks.

I've actually read your reviews of Twilight when you explained Mormonism which was really incredible to read just because I'm not terribly knowledgeable about it. (I foolishly picked up my younger sister's copy of Twilight, attempted to read it because I love YA fiction, thought it was utter crap...and then the Twilight craze happened and I needed to find out how the hell so many people found those books good. I couldn't even finish the first novel and I've read some shitty novels.)

I've seen you around Kita's lj too, so. :D

Dork that I am, I'm going to see the opening and closing nights of the show! I couldn't decide between either date and a big group of us are going both nights so it'll be cool to see it with sane people and I think the energy will be interesting on opening vs. closing. But I work in Manhattan so I'm also like, hell yeah, I can meet up with awesome folks who are coming into town for the musical! I will be in multiple layers and bitching about the cold, but it'll be so awesome and a great way to experience January which usually is such a dire month.

Small world! (I've seen you bumping around for years, too. *dorky fangirling*) Oh my GOD, Twilight. But of course, I am looking forward to the final movie because that means IT IS OVER. America's nightmare is over. Let's hope.


Oh, that's awesome that you get to do that! I'd be interested to hear about any changes in the 2 - I imagine there will be a few minor adjustments made that first week.

F_M and I were saying the same about January. Usually it's so meh, but now there is joy and joyness! I have told myself to chill the hell out several times today and "you are a grown-ass woman, Laura" BUT I CANNOT HELP IT. Broadway! DC! BoM!

Yay mutual dorky fangirling! God, I look forward to Twilight being OVER. They split the last movie into two, right? So it's another year before it's over for real. Boo. When I was doing a much longer commute to my job two years ago, I sat in a train car with what I can only assume was an unofficial book club of people who were obsessed with Twilight and just had to keep on talking about those uh-mazing books and dreamy Edward Cullen. For weeks. (and had that train not been packed and that seat location right where I needed to bolt in order to walk to my office in a timely fashion, I would have sat elsewhere.)

The changes will definitely be interesting to see. That boy runs himself into the ground with his ridiculous schedule and I'll be shocked if he doesn't sneak off some late nights to do unofficial/unannounced gigs while he's in NYC to support his friends.

"They split the last movie into two, right?"

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Oh shit, I forgot about that. It's like a knife to my BRAIN. Nothing makes me more sure I don't want to be friends with someone if they're a grown ass woman fawning over Edward Cullen. Maybe you shouldn't have married the first asshole with a truck that asked you, huh? <-- unnecessarily cruel, but JEEEEEZ.

Oh, that he would do that while I'm in town so I can sit in the back and barely make eye contact! Lol.

I am super, super happy for you, and for this bowl of crack I just smoked. If anyone should see this it's you and possibly Matt and Trey's Moms.

YOU WILL HAVE THE BEST TIME! THE CAPS HAVE SPOKEN!

Oct. 10th, 2011 09:21 pm (UTC)
I AM SUPER JEALOUS OF YOUR CRACK. You're so selfish.

The one thing that would make it better? Sexy times with Matt and Trey. NO, I MEAN IF YOU WERE THERE. filming me having sexy times with Matt and Trey</small>

Because I'm the brains and you're the looks! Actually you're probably the brains as well. I'm going to draw red marker all over my arms and stare out the window.

SUE. I totally had a Holly Hunter "I love them so mu-huh-huh-huuuuch!" moment after clicking "YES" to the tickets. RIGHT UP FRONT, ORCHESTRA. BOTH SHOWS.

NYC! I went two years ago to see my friend. My first time, too! Have a good time! Bring me back a rock! XD

Hahaha! It would most likely be a chunk of asphalt. I've been to NYC many times, but this will be my first trip out there in January - THAT should be interesting. :D

Ahhhhhh! Wanna meet up? Which show are you seeing for BOM, the matinee or the night?

And you HAVE to bring your Book of Mormon. The cast will die.

And omg, if you have room in your schedule for another show, come see my show, Sleep No More! It's probably the most unique theatrical experience in NYC right now. Tickets aren't on sale yet for then, but they will be eventually.
stoney321
Oct. 11th, 2011 12:54 pm (UTC)
Sounds awesome! I'm going to the night shows for both, Tues is H2$ and Wed is BoM. My plan was to plop myself in a pub on Mon. night and hope people would want to come have a drink. More deets as the day nears.

Oh, that's GREAT to know it wouldn't be queer to do so, I immediately thought of that. And I'll have to bring a gold marker so they can sign the outer cover. (It's my old school leather bound BoM!)

OOOOH, that would be amazing! If there's anyway I can pull it off, I will do my best. THAT is what you come to NYC theater to see.
cdvla313
Oct. 11th, 2011 07:21 pm (UTC)
Well...if you're able to plop yourself in a bar on a different night, Sleep No More has Monday night shows, and I work them! And it's cheaper to go M-W than Th-Sat. I also work only M-Th.

Oh people get actors to sign the most random stuff ever. My friend got the cast of Hair to sign her book on transcendental meditation. lol. I almost want to come to stagedoor and watch them sign your BoM. lol.
stoney321
Oct. 11th, 2011 08:20 pm (UTC)
Oooooh. Maybe I should find people to come to that with me, then, because that REALLY looks amazing. IDK, I would fee weird going by myself. That gives me a few months to wrangle a date. :D

Ha, I can tweet that I'm in line so you know to rush over. LOL.
cdvla313
Oct. 12th, 2011 05:15 am (UTC)
Well, tbh, it's nice to come to the show with people to compare notes afterward, but imo it's best experienced alone. You have to be willing to split up in the show-- we deliberately try to split groups. Alone, you can make your own choices about what to do, who to follow, where to go, etc, without worrying about what the people with you want to do, worrying about others reactions, or being distracted by them. You can immerse yourself the most when you don't know anyone around you. I've seen the show twice, the first time by myself, the second time with a friend, but I just brought her down to where a bunch of actors were and then we went off on our own paths, and met back up at the end.

So if you can't find someone to see it with, it's really not a bad thing. lol. I probably wouldn't be able to say hi while you're in line, but I can certainly hang out after the show with you at our bar! I think I get free drinks. :D

Oct. 12th, 2011 11:48 am (UTC)
This is REALLY something I want to experience, so I'm glad to know it wouldn't be a detriment to go alone. SO I THINK I KNOW WHAT I'M DOING MONDAY NIGHT.

Very cool! Museums are all closed on Monday, so I don't have to worry about not getting some culture while I'm there. Oh, I'm so excited! Three shows in three days, v v nice! (OOOOh, maybe do a write up about it for HDJM, I'm thinking!)
cdvla313
Oct. 12th, 2011 07:13 pm (UTC)
Yay!!! I'll def let you know when tickets go up for that date. It's only being sold through November now, so you still have some time to see if anyone else would want to go.

Oh, if you don't mind be spoiled a teensy bit, this is a fabulous video that was put together. Really, I think it contains all essential information about how the show works. AKA now you'll know there's 5 floors, so you won't get stuck on 1 floor for 3 hours (omg, the amount of people who do this.)

And if you write it up, the SNM twitter account will totally tweet about it b/c it loves stuff like that. lol
stoney321
Oct. 12th, 2011 07:52 pm (UTC)
Sweet, please do! I very much want to see this, and was talking about the show to a friend this morning. It sounds really interesting. And lol at people not realizing there were four more stories!!!
cdvla313
Oct. 13th, 2011 05:00 am (UTC)
Oh god, I have so many stories. Common sense is not common. lol.

Ooohh, I am in PA but am always looking for an excuse to go to NYC. I have several friends who live there so I am sure I can gather some amazing pub recomendations from them, even going so far as learning what places serve the best *insert drink here*. So if you have any drink requests, lemme know!

So I've made my way back to October...

I AM GOING TO SEE DARREN IN H2$ ON JAN 12th!!

We are arriving on Jan 11th. Is there any chance you will still be in NYC by then?? Can I meet you outside of Engine Company 204 so I can give you a massive bear hug?? :0)

That's the week I'll be there! We're going the night before. :D Hahahaha, I don't know about schlepping all the way to Brooklyn, but as the time gets closer, I'm sure I'll have a better idea of what flaming_muse and I will be up to!
amyryd
Dec. 23rd, 2011 08:40 pm (UTC)
Ha! I wouldn't drag you all the way to Brooklyn (though you must admit it would be poetic...)

I'll PM you when we get in to January to see if we could even just meet up for a quick drink or a hello (so I could word-vomit all over you in person, instead of just on the internet!)

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
