So, I just got back from Little Mermaid on Broadway (my first ever Broadway show, and say what you will, I LOVED it). As you probably know by now, I'm a humongous fan of Norm Lewis, so I was really excited about possibly getting to meet him. When I came out for stage door, I was behind a really tall guy, so I shyly asked him if he could tell me when Triton came out because I'm a big fan. And the guy said, "Oh, sure! I know Norm!"
What were the chances of that? So Norm Lewis comes out, and this guy just yells "HEY, NORM!" and the two of them start talking, and then the guy points to me and Norm signs my paper! I said to him that he was my favourite Javert as well (which is a lie, he's my second-favourite Javert after Terrence Mann), and he said "Oh, well, thank you! That means a lot!" And then my friend's mom got a picture, but...... she was holding the camera too high. It only got the top half of Norm's head, and nothing of me. So it's no good to post.
Still, I was really, really thrilled. (I also got autographs from the actors playing Prince Eric, one of the eels, and the French chef, who are my other three characters.)
I am playing the Queen of France right now in a play. Try not to decapitate me.
