Orpheus Descending...  
I went and saw the play last night, and really really enjoyed myself, the entire cast is totally amazing.!! The whole play takes place in a mercantile store and confectionary. Gale is mesmerizing and his part would be considered the lead. 
I was talking to the gentleman sitting next to me (Bob) during the 1st intermission, who is a fellow actor himself, and knew several of the actors in the play, was very very gracious to introduce me to the cast, and to Gale himself, I was dumbstruck and spit out something like..” I have admired your work, and I really enjoyed the play”. Luke Perry was in the audience and he too came up to Gale and told him how much he enjoyed his performance.
All in all I really had a memorable evening with my Cinderella  moment..ahhhh..

Current Mood: giddy

So glad you enjoyed it and had such a good time!

We'd love it if you'd share your experience at [insanejournal.com profile] qaf_alumsnnews, but only if you feel like it of course. :)

Either way, yay! It's so nice to hear that Gale's doing so well in this role and that fans like you are getting to experience it.

THAT IS FANTASTIC. Good for you, hon. I don't think I would have been able to say a word to Gale. I don't think I could even look him in the eye!!!

Is it possible for us to send Bob thankyou notes, gifts, underwear, ANYTHING? Is Bob real, or a fairy godmother? Or an angel? I kind of feel on a vicarious high for you. I am SO PROUD you did it, too. You looked Gale in the eye and talked to him and got his autograph!!!!

I am bummed that I don't live in America so I will never get this experience - both seeing Gale perform, and actually meeting him (unless I fork out $$$$). So you make me very happy sharing yours. I hope meeting Gale adds lots of points to your happiness quotient, and you can get them out on a rainy day! Big Hugs and Thankyou.

oh he was definitely real alright..!! he was ever so nice and generous to do that for me.when i saw gale out of the corner of my eye i think i quit breathing. but he is a truly nice man and did i mention very delicious looking.OMG.

and you just never know gale may decide to do something in austrailia,but if you do ever get the chance to come over, it would be awesome..

Hi dear. this has nothing to do with your post, just leaving a comment about something unrelated. i was in your userpics to snag one i saw you using and look for who to credit and noticed that at least a few of your early uploaded icons are miscredited. I'm sure none of the makers will care too much. Some of them were mine, and its no big deal really.

But this one *points to icon* is credited to me, and it's not mine. It's zaipixie's and she is just way too good for me to let someone else give me the credit for one of her icons :D

OMG i am sorry to zaipixie and to all the ones that i miscredited, it has always been important to me to credit the proper person..so thank you so much for noticing.. i will make a note and change that, if you know others please let me know.. they work hard on them i want them to get proper credit..

I can only imagine how unreal it must have felt to meet Gale in person! You are so lucky. Is he kinda shy, the way he looks in interviews?

[identity profile] opal11.insanejournal.com on October 25th, 2010 11:16 am (UTC)
when i was standing there waiting to meet him, my friend just kept telling me to breathe, (cuz i forgot how at that point)..he was the last of the cast to come out, but i dont think that was a diva moment, i think he does not like this part of being "famous".. he was incredibly shy.. but extremely nice and drop dead gorgeous..!

if you have never seen the movie "the unseen" gale is great in that movie..

Yeah, you can just tell by the way he reacts in interviews that he is uncomfortable and doesn't like that part of being famous. But he does seem so down to earth and gracious. I totally loved him in the movie THE UNSEEN. Him and Michelle were so cute together!
