The Insanity Continues - please donate to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS

This is a follow-up to the post "How I Went Insane Without Really Trying"

Please consider making a donation to BC/EFA by visiting their website

When we last left our heroine, she'd just made an insane donation to BC/EFA and along with another gentleman won Daniel Radcliffe's bow tie from How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying.
Photo taken backstage with the very gracious Daniel Radcliffe and John Larroquette, stars of the Broadway revival of How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying.   The third gentlemen is The Thespian's husband.

The next day, The Thespian (see, we're almost back to normal posting style) attended two shows.  The first,  Catch Me If You Can, did not do a fundraising appeal after the matinee performance.    Returning to the hotel, The Thespian's husband convinced The Thespian to wear THE bow tie to that night's performance of Priscilla: Queen of the Desert.  

At the Palace theater, The Thespian was thrilled to run into "John" who sat behind us at How To Succeed.   The Thespian thinks we looked marvelous.

Following the performance, there was another auction, this time for a pair of prop ruby slippers that was cut from the production.   They are signed by Will Swenson, Tony Shelton and Nick Adams and a sparkly opening night program signed by the entire cast was thrown in for good measure.   Guess what?

 The Thespian and her husband went backstage where we were thanked by C. David Johnson, who portrays Bob and a couple of other cast members.   Sorry, no photos this time, but a lovely experience.

On Sunday afternoon, we attended Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo.    Following the show, they auctioned off a photo with the entire cast as well as an autographed copy of one of Robin Williams' DVD's.    The Thespian tied with another generous woman.  Everyone in the cast and crew was very gracious with their time.

Many will think that The Thespian is completely insane for bidding a fair amount of money for these items and experiences.    Please read my initial post: "How I Went Insane Without Really Trying" and you will understand that Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS is very dear to my heart.

Once again, please consider donating to this amazing charity.


  1. Very nice photo of you with Daniel, John, and another man standing behind you. You are looking great! Thanks for posting all the photos.

  2. I have corrected the How To Succeed caption to identify "another man" as The Thespian's husband
