Ok, so today I saw Amélie the musical in LA (cause I live out here) and it was very good. But we are here for the story.
So, I went with a friend and we are hard core theatre geeks and go to an arts school and everything. Anyway, we are heading into the theatre and I’m talking to her and she suddenly stops responding. After about 15 seconds she whispers “it’s Darren fucking Criss”. Of course I immediately look around and she points him out. We both freaked out because we love him and OMG STARKID AND HEDWIG AND GLEE. So he was in line for tacos and we didn’t want to bother him when he was about to eat but we couldn’t miss this chance. We went up to him and said we were fans and we’re seeing the show (he was too) and how we were so excited to see Phillipa Soo and Adam Chanler-Baret. He then called us “hardcore theatre kids” and we died cause we just got called that BY SOMEONE IN THE INDUSTRY. Ok. Then we mentioned our school and it seemed like he recognized it. We then split off (unfortunately no pictures with him but we saw him later and I took a pic of him from the back lol ^).
We then saw the show and afterwards went to the stage door to meet everyone. We met the girl who was little Amélie and she seemed kinda familiar and I found out about an hour ago that she is LILLA CRAWFORD’S sister (Annie in Annie and Little Red in the movie version of Into the Woods). We met the rest of the cast including ADAM CHANLER-BARET (Henry in Next to Normal) and PHILLIPA (Eliza from Hamilton) and got pictures with Adam but not really Phillipa cause she was in a rush but this was probably one of the best days of my life.
