Okay, so I saw the matinee of The Great Comet today (11/12) and I was on a stage seat. It was majestic, but, me, being me, managed to embarrass myself in front of approximately one thousand people and Josh Groban…
…basically, in the beginning of Natasha and the Bolkonskys, Deneé (Natasha) and Gelsey (Mary) take two wooden stools at sit themselves down at a table to do the whole “And from the first glance…” part of the song. And, welp, that table was my table. So I’m sitting there, amazed that they’re standing in front of me, and then I realize Deneé is subtly motioning for me to move over. So I do. But I move the wrong way, apparently, so she really quietly goes like “to the left” and I have to literally lift up my seat and walk over to where she wanted me to go so that the song could, you know, start and everything.
AND THE ENTIRE AUDIENCE BURST INTO LAUGHTER AND I’M PRETTY SURE SOME OF THE BAND WAS LAUGHING AS WELL.
Plus I made eye contact with Josh Groban at that exact moment and he kind of just shook his head at me and it was a lot okay.
Anyway I have a ton of feelings and little things I noticed so please ask me questions about the show I have so much to say.
