I know it's been asked, but... [Oct. 24th, 2006|03:13 pm]
Gale On Stage

[mood |cheerfulcheerful]

I just joined the community yesterday and I know there have probably been lots of requests for housing options during the SLS run.  But I just decided to go this morning and now I find myself unsure of where to stay.  The cheaper the better.  If I can get somewhere cheaper than $200/night then I can afford to stay for three nights instead of two.  So any ideas are more than welcome!

Also, I'll be going December 13 if anyone else is and might like to meet up for dinner/lunch/whatever.

Gale On Stage

 Hi Again everyone, 

I've received several responses from my earlier report about my weekend adventure to NY to see Gale in SLS and many of you have asked me to provide tips about either traveling alone or visiting NY and seeing things that are off-the-beaten-path.  So, in the next couple days I'll be posting all the info I can think of that might help make your trip as fun and memorable as possible on my LJ at qaffangyrl so if you're interested come by and friend me.

THIS MUST STOP [Oct. 23rd, 2006|03:09 pm]
Gale On Stage



I don't have a lot of detail on this, unfortunately. Please, if you are at a performance, help security and inform them of people deliberately positioning themselves in front of the fire doors, or other suspicious activities. I would go so far as to ask that you not attempt to request autographs for yourselves. Help him and be a real fan, please.

SLS-First Night of Previews... [Oct. 21st, 2006|10:58 pm]
Gale On Stage

Hey guys! I posted twice on my own journal and completely forgot to share my thoughts over here. I'm not sure if I should just add a link back to my page or just write something here. I guess I can do a little of both.

My friend and I are going to a Saturday matinee of SLS next month, and we'd also like to see either the Saturday evening or Sunday matinee as well while we are there. Since tickets are pretty much nil online now, is there a chance we could snag them at the box office day of show?
Thanks! :)

Tonight's The Night! [Oct. 20th, 2006|11:00 am]
Gale On Stage

I hope she doesn't mind me saying, but shadownyc has posted some wonderful "stage door" etiquette tips in her LJ that really bear reading and committing to "memories."

(Having organized quite a few meet & greets/in-stores in my salad days, I'd only add that it also pays for Playbill autograph-seekers, should the opportunity arise, to carry two functional Sharpies - a black one if what is being signed is on a light background, and a silver one if one anticipates signing on a black background.)

And, as far as general theater behavior is concerned, please keep in mind the words of Gene Kelly's "Don Lockwood" in Singin' In the Rain: "Dignity, always dignity." ;-)

IIRC, the Laura Pels theater has a stage door in the lobby next to the box office windows that all must pass in order to exit the theater, as opposed to one outside on the street. The theater lobby is tiny, and if there are an appreciable number of people waiting for cast members to emerge, it's possible they may be told to do so outside, so as not to create fire marshal-type issues. I could certainly see the actors feeling claustrophobic in such a situation, so it is really key not to press forward or make them feel boxed-in in any way.

If you are seeing a preview performance and want to share your impressions here, please remember the play is considered a work in progress until the official opening night of November 15th, and discuss it in that light. There will be no official press reviews until that time, but here's hoping that the critics' take on the play will be preceded by much well-deserved favorable "buzz." *crosses fingers*

Enjoy everybody, and I'm sure there will be lots of interesting news to share in a few hours! :)

Keep Your Eyes Peeled... [Oct. 17th, 2006|09:33 pm]
Gale On Stage



Actress BLYTHE DANNER has laughed off reports she's being lined
up to date SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY, insisting she's never even met the
veteran rocker. Danner's daughter GWYNETH PALTROW and MCCartney's
daughter STELLA were rumoured to be matchmaking their widowed
parents. Paltrow's director dad BRUCE died in 2002 while Stella's
mum LINDA MCCARTNEY passed away from breast cancer in 1998. The
former BEATLE split from second wife HEATHER MILLS earlier this
year (06). But Danner insists the suggestion is ridiculous. The
MEET THE PARENTS star says, "They (press) are reaching, aren't
they? "Poor guy (McCartney). He's going through enough hell.
Why would he want to get saddled with anyone again? Certainly
not an older woman."

If anyone sees Sir Paulie sneaking in, we'll know that the blind
date was a success! LOL!

Off Topic: Fay Ann Lee's Campaign To Get a Theatrical Release for East Broadway [Oct. 15th, 2006|11:11 am]
Gale On Stage

Most of you may know that Fay Ann Lee is trying to get a theatrical release for East Broadway before going to DVD. Here courtesy of Jade, is the follow-up e-mail asking for additional support:
Full text behind the cut.Collapse )

Personally I wish it would go to DVD now, as I have seen many films longer on the festival circuit with "name" casts eke out a week or two in the Arclights/Landmarks/Film Forums of NY/LA just to go to DVD anyway... but Fay would still have to show a DVD distributor that she could command a certain number of pre-orders, even for a P&D deal, so this would work for that as well.
