LA is just around the corner! Woo!  
Woo hoo! I've just completed most of our travel arrangements for our LA theatre trip in January. :) I got a GREAT price on hotels from Priceline (just $44 a night at the Extended Stay America chain), got a great price on a rental car (anyone hear of ACE rental?), and almost all of our theatre tickets purchased...

If anyone is interested, here's what we're seeing:

January 27th - City of Angels with Reprise! (Woo hoo for lindasings and Steven being there for that performance - it's going to be so nice to see them! :D
January 28th (mat) - City of Angels.... yes, again! :)
January 28th (eve) - Diva at Pasadena Playhouse! Yay for half price tickets at Goldstar!! :)
January 29th (mat) - Possibly Bark! so Mark can see Kristi. :) (hopefully others like Brandon will be in that day too!) :)
January 29th (eve) - City of Angels (We have FANTASTIC seats!) :)
January 30th - Last Five Years at Reprise! starring Jason Robert Brown (no better way that I can think of to celebrate my birthday this year) :)

In more LA theatre news, I totally want to see this! I wanted to know what Nick was up to and now I do. :) WOW! It's not been cast yet, but is it too early for me to be thinking good thoughts for a certain performer who can get up to a tenor range and who will be free once It Came From Beyond ends its run at Write Act?? :) Either way, it's a Nick production and I'd LOVE to see it! :)

And I know it's only the first week of January here, but I've already planned out in my mind the perfect shows for Kevin in 2006. ;) Here's my WISH LIST for him:

  • March 16th - April 30th: "Pilgrim" (under the direction of Nick DeGruccio)
  • June 2nd - 18th: "Johnny Guitar" at La Mirada. :) With his country music background he'd be PERFECT for this! :D
  • July 7th - August 6th: The Marriage Musicals - "The Last Five Years" and "I Do! I Do!" at Pasadena Playhouse! (I can SO see him as Jaime and Michael with either Tami or Kim Huber as the perfect Cathy and Agnes!) :D Sidenote: The Pasadena Playhouse is doing something completely wonderful this year - they're taking two actors and casting them in two different musicals and alternating them on different nights as part of the same series. I think it's spectacular idea!
Of course casting hasn't been announced yet for any of these, but a girl can dream, can't she?? ;)

We're off to visit friends, but I promise to catch up with all of your journals and comments when I get home this evening. Hope you're all having a nice Monday! :D

(1) Re: The January trip. We're seeing Diva on Feb. 11, so let us know how it is.

(2) Let us know regarding "It Came From Beyond". I've already blocked off that Saturday matinee.

(3) Our tickets for "The Last Five Years" are for July 29, 9pm show. I've got the schedule for "I Do I Do", but haven't bought our tickets yet (we get subscriber rates). According to the box office, the showings for I Do, I Do are:

Fri Jul 1 8pm

Sun Jul 2 2pm
Wed Jul 5 8pm
Wed Jul 12 8pm
Sat Jul 15 5pm
Sun Jul 16 2pm

Tue Jul 18 8pm
Sat Jul 22 5pm
Sun Jul 23 2pm

Tue Jul 25 8pm
Wed Jul 26 2pm
Sat Jul 29 5pm
Sun Jul 30 2pm

Tue Aug 1 8pm
Wed Aug 2 8pm
Sat Aug 5 5pm
Sun Aug 6 2pm

Of this, most weekends in July are open, but I'll likely do it the 22nd at 5pm, as Karen's birthday is the 21st and it will make a nice birthday night out.

(1) I'll definitely let you know how DIVA is!! :)

(2) I'm still working on getting ticket info about this. I'll probably know more sometime this week. :)

(3) If I do come out to see the "Marriage Musicals", I'll probably be there the weekend of the 22nd (I just found out there are other reasons I might want/need to be in LA during that weekend.) :)

I'm so jealous that you get to see Jason Robert Brown perform live! :D Have a terrific time!
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on January 3rd, 2006 08:22 am (UTC)
I was SO excited to hear about this too! :) I love the cast recording but have never seen the show staged before - I'm so happy that I'll be seeing it with JRB as Jaime! :)

That's amazing. I adore him; he's so talented. What a wonderful experience to see him in that show. I can't wait to hear about it!

A Happy New Year!
Yay for L5Y! Yes no better way to celebrate your b-day like that. So you are Aquarius? Me too! No wonder we have similar tastes :)

I'm SO looking forward to Pasadena Playhouse's L5Y too. Would be great if Kevin in two shows at once, wouldn't it?!

I'm also Aquarius.
Sheri: Stephanie & Kate Monstershutterbug93 on January 3rd, 2006 08:24 am (UTC)
Yay for Aquarians!! :D

Happy New Year to you too!! :) And I am indeed an Aquarius! :)

It would be SO wonderful if Kevin were cast in the shows at Pasadena!! He'd be so perfect for the roles!! :D
