#LoveTheatreDay

As you are well aware I am a huge fan of going to the Theatre, catching my favourite actors on stage and the occasional stage door visit as well. This year I have managed a lot of touring UK shows, many visits to the West End in London and an incredible trip to New York for some amazing Broadway shows. Nothing better than watching live acting and singing before your eyes in some beautiful Theatres!

This is being celebrated on Twitter and really is fantastic to find amazing posts from performers and shows as well as fans!

I promise that this is my very last post about my New York trip (honestly) it might just stem some film related posts though, but don’t worry I still have a few film/tv related photos to share. Some of them are from knowledge gained on the On Location Central Park and/or Bus Tour.

Stage Door – David Hyde Pierce

Following the sensational performance of Hello, Dolly we went straight for the stage door and got a fantastic spot at the front of one of the barriers. Quite a lot of people congregated hoping to see Bette, but rumours around the crowd were that she never comes out on a Sunday. Which turned out to be true.

David Hyde Pierce did come out though and he was fantastic, taking plenty of time to make sure he signed everyone’s Playbill and made eye contact saying hello as he was signing. I was super impressed with Niles, yes I could not resist that Frasier reference!

Ellen’s Stardust Diner

I had been told about this place a lot before going on the trip as the waiters all take turns to sing in the one of a kind diner. So naturally it was on the list of places to go to, we ended up going twice as well. Both times for breakfast, didn’t have to queue early on in the morning which as a bonus, as well as the food being fantastic and the entertainment even better.

After seeing War Paint on Thursday evening the CD was due to be launched the following day with it going on sale at 9am at Barnes & Noble. You had to head across and get yourself a wristband, was in the queue outside for what felt like forever considering the rain was extremely heavy when in reality it was 15 minutes.
