Yes, it was fun. No, we're just friends.
Stage Door Buttercup strikes again. Yesterday I went to the theater with a dear friend and her mother-in-law, who just happened to have an extra ticket for "Nice Work If You Can Get It."
It also just happens that I have a ticket for "Nice Work..." for next week, but as Kelli O'Hara is one of my all time favorites, I love Gershwin music and I (almost) never turn down a ladies matinee day with two delightful people, I happily and gratefully accepted the ticket. And what a good decision it was!
We had lunch at this cute French bistro. They had me with the greeting of "Bonjour." Then we went on to two delightful hours of singing, dancing and fun. We all enjoyed it tremendously and I am still humming "Someone to Watch Over Me."
After the show I decided to walk over to the stage door. My only goal was to get a picture (or two or three). But the cast could not have been friendlier and I got lots of pictures, including my favorite with Matthew Broderick. I also got my Playbill signed by all of the actors you see in the photos and I got to chat (however briefly) with Kelli O'Hara.
Kelli O'Hara and Matthew Broderick at the Stage Door. I love this picture!

I am one very happy blogger/theater goer/middle aged civil servant! My next task is to get a shadow box to frame my signed Playbill. Sigh of Bliss!
Hope your weekend was as sweet. Have a great Sunday and please stop by tomorrow for the next meeting of the Buttercupland Book Club. The feature is a wonderful book about motherhood.
