Altar Boyz - and the most embarrassing moment of my life!  
Sorry it's taken me so long to update about my NYC weekend, but it's been absolutely crazy with work. But I couldn't NOT mention my totally amazing and altogether mortifying Altar Boyz experience on Sunday night, though...

First off, I love the show - I'd seen it twice in other venues, but NEVER off-broadway. It always seemed like there were other shows to see while I was in NYC so I never got the chance, at least until last weekend. And what a first experience it was!!

I knew from seeing the show that the "Matthew" pulls up someone from the audience... A girl who he sings "Something About You" to who is the girl who makes Matthew... want to wait. ;) I was in complete and utter shock when Michael Kadin Craig (Matthew) came up to ME and pulled me up on stage! The only thing that I could think of was, "OH MY GOD... Please don't let me fall or trip on the stage."

Thankfully all went well... I don't remember too much about anything in that number, just that I knew that the "Mark" was doing funny things around me (having seen the show before) but being right there on stage, I couldn't see or appreciate it. When the number was over Michael asked my name - which he had to repeat because I was like a deer in headlights at that point. ;) We then took a photo, and then I was allowed to return to my seat. The next couple of jokes were directed at me - which was all done in a good humored way, not meant to make fun of anyone... which I loved.

I think it took until the end of the show for me to really realize what had happened... And after all the shock and the initial embarrassment wore off, I have to say that it made my very first off-broadway Altar Boyz experience something VERY special!

Side note: I LOVE that the guy in the orchestra is posing for the camera as well! :D

Bet you I'm the OLDEST person ever to get pulled up on stage for this!! :)

I'm off to catch up on all of your entries, hope you all have a great weekend!! HUGS!!!

Thanks so much, Carrie!! After all the embarrassment wore off, I did realize what an amazing experience it was!! If they only knew that I was TWICE the age of most girls who get pulled up on stage!! :D :D

I can visualize your expression when he came to pick u up on the stage.. :)
Well, sometimes some moments look embarrassing only at that moment when it happens and not later on..
I am sure this is definitely one such.. :)

Haha!! I think I literally said, "Oh MY God" when Michael came up to me!! In fact, I think I shook my head when he first held his hand out to me... Now, that I look back on it (after the embarrassment has faded...) it was a pretty amazing experience!! :)

I will certainly not forget it!! :) It's one of those moments that is mortifying at the time, but SOOOO amazing in retrospect. :) I have a last bit to update about NYC before I'm done with my trip update... I'm SOOO behind! :P

Thanks for taking the time to read, Sabine!! Big HUGS and much love to you!!

Haha!! Thanks, Linda! :D It was HYSTERICAL being sung to about "waiting" when I'm almost 40 and have been married for 10 years!! I'm TWICE the age of most girls that I've seen who have gotten pulled up onstage! :D
