Several months ago I found out that the show was coming to the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach. As that's only an hour drive north, I got a ticket. On Tuesday I tweeted Andrew and said that I was coming to the Wednesday matinee and hoping for autographs and photos. When he replied "Totally" I was blown away.
The Kravis Center is a fabulous theater with a crowd of people who know how to behave in the theater. I had a great seat with no obstructions, pretty close to the stage. Here's the view from my seat.
I always loved visiting the pit while they are tuning up.
After the show, I hustled around to the stage door. To my surprise, Andrew Varela called me by name (OK so it's Zizzybob, my twitter name) and he stopped to chat with me. If that wasn't enough, a few of the boys on the barricade also stopped to chat and sign autographs. Joe Tokarz, Jason Ostrowski, Joe Spieldenner, Richard Todd Adams and Jason Forbach were all so charming that I really wished I was 20 years old again. It got a bit confusing, talking to 3 at a time, but Andrew was kind enough to take a photo with me. I was so overwhelmed that he grabbed my cell phone and took the photo for me (he said it was because his arms were longer.)
If LesMis comes to your town, please go see it, I'm sure you'll love it. As for me, I can't wait until next year when it comes around to Miami.
