So it's been formally announced... I can be formally sad. :( The Marvelous Wonderettes are indeed closing in North Hollywood at the end of the month. :( First and foremost I'm sad because I love the show - and because, no matter what was bothering me at work or anywhere else, I knew that I could go to the El Portal and for two hours I could forget about my problems... And because of Bets, Julie, Kirsten, and Kim - who have made my wonderette visits incredibly, INCREDIBLY special throughout the (almost) two years that I've seen the show.

I'm seeing the show again on Saturday night - and it'll be my last time seeing it at the El Portal - which is extremely sad for me. The Wonderettes, after all, had been a mainstay of my theatre trips and the one show I could always count on.

Saturday night will be my 8th viewing of the show - the first time being 2 days after opening night back in October of 2006.

Throughout everything, I have seen:
  • 2 Suzy Simpsons (Bets and Lowe)
  • 2 Missy Millers (Kim and Tami - which was amazing in itself!)
  • 2 Betty Jean Reynolds' (Julie and Leslie)
  • only ONE Cindy Lou Huffington (Kirsten - can you imagine I NEVER saw an understudy in the two years that I've been seeing the show?)
One last note - I adore Bets - she's the best, she really is! Not only is she an incredible friend, but I think she truly does understand how much this show has meant to me in the short time that it's been playing.
