Oh my gosh, I'm so excited, I can't stand it!  
Kevin just sent me the most GLORIOUS email! He's going to be taking over the role of Trevor Graydon in "Thoroughly Modern Millie" on Broadway! Oh.My.Gosh. I'm so happy for him that I actually started to cry. If there was anyone who deserved this opportunity it was certainly Kevin! I know how hard he's been working and how much this means to him. It couldn't have happened to a nicer person. :) :)

So I guess I'm not going to LA in February - instead I'm looking at booking a trip to NYC! :)

Thanks so much! :) I'm just SO happy for him! I'll miss him on the closer coast, but what an incredible opportunity for him! He hasn't been on Broadway since "Les Mis"!

Wow, that's wonderful. Tell him congrats for me. :)
Sherishutterbug93 on November 19th, 2003 10:52 pm (UTC)
I will! :) Thank you so much Carrie! :) I know it'll be hard for him to leave home for so long, but he'll finally get the exposure he deserves! I have to get out there to see him - maybe in January. :)

OK, I HAVE to ask! :P have you seen the lion king on broadway? :)
Sherishutterbug93 on November 19th, 2003 10:53 pm (UTC)
I haven't seen it on Broadway, but I did see the tour at the Pantages in LA. :) Have you seen it?

OMG!!!!! THAT IS AWESOME!!!!! I just started to cry, too!! lol that's really exciting for him! After hearing you gush about him, I can't wait to see him live! :)
Sherishutterbug93 on November 20th, 2003 12:06 am (UTC)
Ah, Lauren! :) When is the next time you plan to see "Millie"? Please let me know how he was when and if you see him! :) I probably won't be able to head out there until January or so. :P But he's just incredible, his voice is beyond words. :)
starstruck113 on November 20th, 2003 12:46 am (UTC)
Well, I'm seeing it on Monday, but this is really crazy.. I'm taking a little two-day trip in between my two finals on the 15th and the 18th.. and I'll be in NYC on the 16th and 17th.. I might just have to get myself a rush ticket to his first performance!! ;) I can't wait to see him!

You'll love the show when you see it... definintely one of the best I've ever seen. I want to see it on broaway, cause Technically it far exceeds the tour.

Congrats!
Sherishutterbug93 on November 20th, 2003 07:28 am (UTC)
Thanks for commenting Jenni! :) I do love the show. :) I've seen it twice (so far) on Broadway and I've seen two different Trevor Graydons - Marc Kudisch and Christopher Sieber. :) Both were excellent and I think Kevin has some pretty big shoes to fill. :) Mark & I are going to see the tour in June in LA since he & I want to see Diana as Miss Dorothy. :)

Wow, that is really exciting! I bet you'll love going to NYC too :)
Sherishutterbug93 on November 20th, 2003 08:01 am (UTC)
It is! :) I'm SO happy for him! :) And I love NYC, I love Broadway, I love hearing Kevin sing,.... Did I mention I loved NYC? ;) At least this gives me a reason to go up there (as if I needed one before!)

That's WONDERFUL news!!!
Sherishutterbug93 on November 20th, 2003 10:42 pm (UTC)
Thanks Meredyth! :) Are you going to see the show again any time after Dec 16th? If you do, I'd love to hear all about it. :) I won't be able to go up there until Jan 17th. Thanks so much for your comment! :)
Meredythbroadway_rose on November 22nd, 2003 10:10 am (UTC)
I don't think I'm going to be seeing Millie again anytime soon because there are so many other shows I want to see and with ticket prices these days it's hard to see everything. BUT I think I will also be in the city on Jan 17th! I *have to* see Wicked again and I'll be there that weekend!
Sheri: Kevin 2003shutterbug93 on November 22nd, 2003 06:47 pm (UTC)
I really, really wanted to see "Wicked"! I can't believe you'll be in the city on the 17th too! :) When are you seeing "Wicked"? I have tickets for "Millie" for Friday and Saturday night - we may do the Sat matinee and Sun matinee through TKTS, or we may try to get tickets for "Wicked" - we'll see. :)

Hey Sheri!

If you've seen my LJ you know I'm excited too. :-D

Mind if I add you, BTW? I keep meaning to!
