So filling

I saw the new musical Waitress on Wednesday.

waitressA lot has already been written about that particular performance, since they had to stop the show twice to deal with scenery malfunction…but no one was complaining.

Sara Bareilles was the entertainment during the break.

It’s not the first time I have experienced stoppages like this on Broadway.  When I saw Harvey starring Jim Parsons from “The Big Bang Theory,” they too had pesky set pieces that simply would not move.

That’s what you get when you go to early previews.

And with Waitress, you get a wonderful, heart-felt, truly hilarious take on one of my favorite films.  Kudos to the casting director, because every role was spot-on — especially the male supporting characters, who stole the show every time they stepped out on stage.

Drew Gehling as Dr. Pomatter — a role originated by my man Nathan Fillion in the movie — has big shoes to fill and does it with unique comedic timing and fantastic chemistry with star Jessie Mueller.  But the biggest ovation at curtain call — rightly so — went to Christopher Fitzgerald, who chews up the scenery (or should I say pie?) as the quirky Ogie the Elf.

The music is wonderful, and ya gotta love any set that features a cherry pie curtain, even if the darn thing doesn’t work all that well.  Because the show?

Sweet!

Bend and snap

Kaley Cuoco, who plays Penny in The Big Bang Theory, got married on New Year’s Eve…and the paparazzi has snapped plenty of pics of her new wedding ring.

But I can’t stop looking at her nails.

What’s up with the witch-y points?

I’ve noticed several celebs opting for these ‘dagger nails’ instead of the traditional rounded or squared shapes.

I don’t understand the appeal.

What to do you think?

Heroes come in all sizes

What are you up to this fine Saturday?

Getting yourself a FREE COMIC BOOK????

That’s what I thought.

May we blink?

As I sit and watch Christmas Vacation for the second time this holiday season, one name is foremost in my mind…

Leonard

I had forgotten — or did I ever realize? — that Johnny Galecki, Leonard on The Big Bang Theory, portrays Clark Griswold’s son Russ in the holiday cult classic. He was only 13 when Vacation was made in 1989.

24 years ago? Really??

Bazinga.

The whole universe…

So this happened yesterday.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Mars Rover team visited the set of The Big Bang Theory
for their taping last night.

I join geeks everywhere in being equally excited that…

  • real scientists joined forces with TBBT clique, and
  • they’re taping new episodes.

Hurry up, fall season!  Bring on the new shows!!

That’s entertainment

During a lively discussion about the Oscar nomination hits and misses with a friend of mine in the ‘hood, a nine-year old girl listening in countered,

“You know this awards stuff isn’t really important, right?”

A child with perspective.  I hate that.

Well, she’s gonna love this.  I now want to address the egregious omission of Ben and Leslie of Parks and Recreation from the E! Online “TV’s Top Couples Tournament.”

Thirty-two couples are vying for the title, and Ben and Leslie aren’t even being considered.

Thank goodness Lil’ Sebastian isn’t alive to see this day.

Since the obvious winner isn’t allowed to compete, I want to make sure some good couples make it into the round of Sweet 16.

Couples like…

  • Phil and Claire of Modern Family
  • Castle and Beckett of Castle
  • Leonard and Penny of The Big Bang Theory
  • Barney and Robin of How I Met Your Mother

I’m sure you have your favorites, so vote today!

It’s very important.
