-i was sitting in the front row of the back mezz and i could see everything and it was incredible.
-brad came up to us beforehand and shouted “NYET, NYET, NYET!” at things such as leaving your cellphones on during the performance and talking during the show, etc
-then prologue started. and everyone in the audience was so engaged from that point on it was great. we had such a good audience omg
-cathryn played her clarinet in my face and it was magical
- celia mei rubin’s arms are my RELIGION, holy shit??? she’s tiny but so fucking strong i love it?? she’s incredible
-okay fast forward to natasha and the bolkonskys…after mary said “and he looked at her once head to toe” nicholas belton managed to mutter “not in my house” at shoba (who was playing natasha) right before mary continued with the lyric and i dIED
-fast forward to the duel: balaga ate sonya out next to the bolkonsky chair, anatole seduces marya, marya whips some poor ensemble member on the top of the stage, and let’s not forget the special appearance by all eighteen of josh canfield’s abs
- everything was fantastic up until in my house
- brittain is in the middle of her line and her mic cuts out
- cue my heart dropping
- then ALL THE SOUND CUTS OUT
- and suddenly there’s an announcement over a hidden loudspeaker: “EXCUSE US. WE’RE HAVING SOME TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES. ALL ACTORS PLEASE EXIT THE STAGE.”
- shoba and grace and brittain are just kind of standing there laughing nervously and eventually grace beckons to shoba and they exit
- the audience starts murmuring and everything is quiet
- until a man behind me starts singing: “whOOAAOAOAAAOHOAAA”
- getting the message, i stand up and shout “HEY! HEY! HEY!”
- and the WHOLE AUDIENCE STARTS SINGING THE ABDUCTION
- IT WAS INCREDIBLE
-EVERYONE STARTED CLAPPING AND SHAKING THEIR EGG SHAKERS AND SINGING
- eventually the song died out and everyone started clapping again it was hilarious
- scott stangland (pierre), had to stay in the circular pit the whole time, and i’m not sure if he was staying in character or drinking from the wine bottle to cope with the fact that things had gone horribly wrong
- then the guitar player next to him started the wave
- and since its a circular theatre, the wave extended through the entire imperial
- after that ended, heath came out to his spot to loud applause
- he grinned and waved as the rest of the cast came out
- they weren’t getting the okay to continue the show so they just stood there in silence in their spots right before in my house
- after a long pause, lucas, who stood on the top of the stairs, called “YOU GUYS REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED, RIGHT?” everyone says “yes!” and then grace comes onstage and the audience ROARS
- they continued the show and it was terrific
anyway, tl/dr: props to the great comet cast retaining their good humor and taking a major technical difficulty in stride.
@maxpoppy: “David Dobrik imagine.. Reader & David have been long time friends. They accidentally kiss @ her apartment when the reader was upset & make it those situations: “it’s wrong but feels so right” & they still continue… I know David would never do this to Liza but.. aye. Thnx, you’re cool.”
“I should be used to it by now. I shouldn’t get my hopes up.” I’m pacing around my best friend David’s house.
“Y/N, you’re allowed to be upset with your Dad for canceling on you,” David says from kitchen. When I called him, angry and on the verge of tears 20 minutes ago he said to come over, have a cup of coffee and talk it out, so here I was, pacing across his hardwood floors.
“He was supposed to be my date to the Emmy’s. He’s been saying that he would be my date to my first award show since I first said I wanted to be a director when I was 9.” I throw my hands into my hair and sigh.
“I’m so sorry.”
“It’s okay. He’s been doing this to me since my first soccer game and hasn’t really stopped. I completely understood when he and my mom got divorced two years later.” I walk back over to the kitchen and take my hot coffee mug from David’s hands. We walk over to the couch. “I don’t want to talk about him anymore.” I flop down exhausted and put my head on David’s shoulder.
“Let’s focus on the fact that your TV show is nominated for a fucking Emmy instead. If your Dad can’t get his act together for that, forget it.” David smiles at me and I relax a little more. We have been best friend’s since middle school, so he has gotten fantastic at calming me down, especially about my doofus of a dad, by now.
“I need a new date.” I say, laughing.
“What’s Kim doing? Can she come?” David asks, sipping his coffee.
“She booked a cruise with her college roommate over a year ago. I don’t want to ask her to cancel. She said she would be sure to watch me on the night of, though.” I curl my legs up beneath me, smiling to myself at the idea of my mother cheering for me and getting boozed up with her middle aged friends in a cruise ship somewhere.
“I’ll be your date,” David suggests.
“Wouldn’t they just keep asking me where Liza was? You know, your girlfriend of 3 years. Tiny brown girl?”
“Yeah I guess, but come on. It would be fun!”
“You just want to mooch off my award nominated success” I smirk
“Yeah obviously,” David laughs.
“Maybe I’ll just take Alex instead. Or Todd”
“Noooo” David throws is head back. “Take me! Pleaseeeee” He sticks his bottom lip out. “We could take my new Tesla”
“Oh my god the fucking Tesla,” I laugh, still pressed into David’s shoulder. “New deal. If you don’t bring up the Tesla again for a month, I will take you to the Emmy’s”
“Deal,” David says, laughing. He puts an arm around me. “The fact that you’re back to dragging me means you feel better, right?”
“Yeah,” I sigh. “Thanks for making me coffee and listening to me rant.” I look up into his eyes.
“Of course,” he says, rubbing my back lightly. We just sit there in silence for a few moments. Both of our lives are crazy busy, so we rarely get to spend time just the two of us anymore.
I look back up at my best friend and out of nowhere, his lips press into mine. My mind is racing with questions, but I feel myself start to kiss him back.
What the fuck? What about Liza? Wait does this feel good? Holy shit this is a good kiss, wow, okay Liza I get it now. Shit Liza. Fuck. What the hell is David thinking?
I pull away. “David!” I slap him across the shoulder. “What the hell was that?”
“I was just seeing something,” he says bashfully. I can tell I’m blushing and that he knows I liked it, but I decide to blow past that.
“No more of that. Ever. I can’t believe you would do that.”
“I’m sorry,” David says.
“It’s not a huge deal,” I sigh. “But no more.” I laugh and stand up.
“Are you going?” David asks, standing up too.
“Yeah I think it’s for the best. Liza gets back from Brazil tomorrow, and you can kiss her all you want then” I shake my head.
“You kind of liked it though,” David smirks.
“I don’t know what you’re talking about,” I say, smirking, as I grab my purse off the counter and head for the door.
“Bye Buddy” David calls after me.
“Bye Buddy” I call back, the same exchange of goodbyes we’ve had since middle school.
We’re never going to kiss again, at least not like that. But, I am sure going to be thinking about it.
I think to myself as I walk out into the driveway.
The Emmy’s are going to be quite interesting.
I hoped you liked it! Sorry if you wanted it more smutty, but honestly I had a really hard time writing about David cheating on Liza. I know that sounds stupid but god damn they’re such a good couple! Lol
@joshgroban: Man I miss being in this show. And seeing this show. And my friends in this show. And Broadway in general. I….have to go slice an onion now.
@nicholas_belton: This experience and these people grow brighter in my mind and heart now more than ever.
@gelseybell: So many beautiful tweets about @GreatCometBway opening a year ago. And then I saw this and it somehow felt like part of it. Can’t decide if I identify more with the dog or the dolphin… to all those Bway folks.
