OMG!  The one and only Nancy Botwin!  Mary-Louise Parker is currently starring in “The Snow Geese” on Broadway.  The play only runs through mid-December 2013, so if you want your chance to see MLP in the flesh, you have to act quickly.  The story, set in post World War II, focuses on a recent widow (played by Mary-Louise Parker) confronting the reality that he recently deceased husband left their wealthy family in massive debt.   The cast is great, and for me, a huge fan of “Weeds,” it was great to watch Mary-Louise Parker on stage for 2 hours.  After the show, she briefly signed autographs and took photos with the show goers and it was a perfect end to a perfect night!  Thanks Mary-Louise!  You can find out more about “The Snow Geese” and get your tickets at this link (which will open in a new window).

Bette Midler is currently starring on Broadway as the legendary Hollywood Agent Sue Mengers in the one woman show “I’ll Eat You Last.”  It’s filled with juicy stories, humor and most of all, it stars Bette Midler!  After the show, Bette was gracious enough to sign a few autographs and although it looks like I am photo-bombing, she took a picture with dear ol’ G.  You have until June 29, 2013 to see “I’ll Eat You Last,” before it closes, so get thee to The Booth Theatre in NYC immediately!

New York! Don’t miss your chance to see two time Academy Award winner Tom Hanks live and in the flesh as he makes his Broadway debut in Nora Ephron’s play “Lucky Guy.”  The comedy/drama is about the life of Mike McAlary, columnist of New York City tabloids in the 1980s and ’90s.  It’s interesting to see Tom Hanks in a role of a character that is unlikeable and because his acting skills are top notch, you forget that you are watching Tom Hanks.  There are a bunch of other great actors in the cast including Courtney B. Vance, Maura Tierney, Christopher McDonald, Richard Masur and Peter Scolari, making this an unintentional “Bosom Buddies” reunion!  Whoa!!!

Both Tom Hanks and Peter Scolari were very accommodating (or were as accommodating as possible) to hordes of fans waiting to catch glimpses of the actors and for that I say thank you!  “Lucky Guy” only runs though June 2013, so make sure you book your tickets in advance so you don’t miss out.  Thanks again Tom and Peter for a great night!

I love me some Ellen Burstyn!   If you feel the same, you can see her in the flesh on Broadway in a revival of the Pulitzer Prize winning play “Picnic.”  All the details are at this link (which will open in a new window).  Thanks Ellen for being so nice!

Everyone knows there is only one Jake in my life (Mr. Jake Shears of Scissor Sisters), but Jake Gyllenhaal comes in a close second.  Jake is making his American stage debut in New York in “If There Is I Haven’t Found It Yet” and if theatre is your thing, you won’t want to miss this show.  You can find out more details and purchase tickets at this link.  Thanks Jake for being a cool guy!
