Okay, proud Mama of daughter in theater talking: Amy's dress rehearsal for Hairspray at the Hollywood Bowl went very well.
She said there were about 500 people in the Bowl - a few friends, agents, etc, but mostly strangers. Even with such a small group, the place erupted with screams when John Stamos and Nick Jonas hit the stage (they basically enter around the same time). Amy has a bit where she grabs Nick's leg like a crazed fan and he drags her around the stage, and she said the audience was just screaming all the way through it. Can you just imagine when 18,000 screaming Nick Jonas fans are there?She got a great response on her solo as well. She told me that there's not one bad apple in the all-star bunch - they're all really nice and no one's a dick. (her words!) She also said that after the rehearsal and note session they went to go to their cars in the lot, and the crowd waiting for Nick was amazing. He signed autographs and took photos with all of them. She said she couldn't say enough nice things about him or the rest of the stars.
She also said that Nick had to have his bodyguard there - boy, will he be busy tonight!

I would guess there'll be lots of video of it on YouTube. God, I wish I could be there!

Bravo Amy :clap: I can't imagine what it must feel like to stand on that stage. It's such an amazing venue. And I'm not just saying that because I spent a night under the stars there surrounded by friends & FOTC. :D

claire & I saw this play last weekend, a comedy musical of Silence of the Lambs. It was a lot of fun. I read that they are putting together a soundtrack which is good news because I'm itching to hear Hannibal's song "I Can Smell Your C**t" again and again and again. :roll2:

You lucky ducky! I read about this and wanted to see it, but couldn't fit it into my schedule.
Hmmm. That song sounds, ummm, interesting. :lyre: Nah, just kidding. I would think they'd be releasing that cd soon.

Have you ever been to the theater at 80 St. Mark's Place Nancy? It's small & not a bad seat in the house.

I honestly can't remember, SW. If I saw what else had played there through the years, it might ring a bell, but I can't think of anything I saw there.
There are a bunch of nice theatres all around the city that have under 300 seats. Some of them are terrific places to see great shows, and the price is right.

The first bits of Hairspray videos at the Hollywood Bowl are showing up. This is Amy's crazed fan scene with Nick Jonas. She's the one with the Snookie hair, in the green sweater suit, kneeling closest to Nick:

Funny you should ask. I have it downloaded, but it's too large for here. She sounded great.

Thanks Laura! Woo! Go Amy! :supz: That was awesome. Is it weird to see your daughter on a jumbotron? :lol:

So so strange! Especially thinking that a year ago you guys were there watching someone else on the Jumbotron. :eyelashes:

I have to tell you, Nick Jonas was so nice to Amy. He told her that that bit she sang made him want to sing better, and that she inspired him to work harder. She said they talked about loving the studio, and how she loved singing backup. Hmm, backup singing for Nick Jonas. Not too shabby. That might be kind of cool. :hrm:
The one thing she said was she couldn't get over the crazed fans - soooo many of them, and it was so insane getting out of backstage to the parking lot. Oy. Heigh Ho the glamorous life.

I don't even know who Nick Jonas is.

Ooh thanks Laura. I can't wait to listen to the songs when I'm not at work. :rock:

It's an age thing - if you're a tween, you'd know him. There's High School Musical and the Jonas Brothers. Nick Jonas is the youngest of the three bros, and probably the one most people would recognize. I wouldn't compare him to Elvis, but for this day and age, he's got the same scream factor. :rock: He's a Type 1 Diabetic who's done a lot to bring attention to a disease that I have as well. And he's a nice kid, which is always nice to hear.
