Hey guys. It’s been a while.
I haven’t updated All Good Things in a really long time because I have been kind of insanely busy, but it’s summer now and I really don’t have much going on at all except for a few small things here and there, and if any of you guys were around last summer, you know that I can get a lot of writing done when I don’t have much going on.
Look at this picture.
This is picture is from a little over a month ago but.
If you look through all of the posts that I have made on this Tumblr, you will see that cute little face a lot (not my cute little face, the other cute little face.) Adam Chanler-Berat, who ‘plays’ Henry in All Good Things who I am totally obsessed with. Well, yeah. Totally met him. He’s in a play on Broadway right now — Peter and the Starcatcher — which is nominated for nine Tony Awards! Anyways, I was in NYC last month, saw it, met him, it was beautiful, I was really flustered, told him he was my favourite person, hugged him, went back to the hotel room and cried, etc.
ALSO! I was in town for the opening night of Peter, and so I went to see celebrities — totally saw Debra Messing, Brooke Shields, Martha Plimpton, AND Jennifer Damiano who ‘plays’ Brendon’s sister, Casey in all of the stories. I wanted to approach her, but I felt weird because she was with Adam’s boyfriend and Adam’s family and Adam’s friends and it’s weird that I knew his family but I won’t lie and say that I’ve never stalked their Facebooks because I have. Whatever. I am weird.
So, yeah. All of this is hardly related to the stories at all, but it’s just stuff that is exciting for me.
But the main thing I really wanted to say was that with all of my free time, I hope to be writing again soon.
Would you guys like that?
Are any of you still even out there?
I’d love to hear from you guys. It’s been so long.
So, I was just wandering the streets of New York City last night, when something caught my eye.
This sign in a phone booth.
I may or may not have totally freaked out.
Ha ha ha ha ha HA HA.
Now I am assistant stage manager for Godspell
so I have rehearsals even more often than I did before.
I am just the worst, aren’t I?
I’M SO SORRY THAT I AM SO BUSY.
But Godspell will be over in a little less than a month. And then I am going back to New York again on April 13th through the 16th (AND I WILL BE SEEING PETER AND THE STARCATCHER — STARRING ADAM CHANLER-BERAT — FROM THE SECOND ROW AHHHHH.)
And then after that? I HAVE NOTHING.
According to their last post, when they reach 750 followers on Twitter, there will be a surprise. I REALLY LIKE SURPRISES. Right now they have 715 followers. I want them to have 750 so I can have a fun surprise.
So go follow them on Twitter. FOR ME.
Also, if you’re wondering about an update, please just know that I am trying my hardest. I’m pretty sure I mentioned that I was stage managing a play this semester, but a couple things changed and now I am not only stage managing it, but I am also in it. And it’s a very dry play that is basically a history lecture and I have to be off-book in a little more than a week and I am not even close to having all of my lines memorized, so any spare time that I do have, I am doing that.
But the play will be over by the end of the month and I will have much more free time.
I just wanted to let you guys know about that.
But yeah. Go follow BwayBites.
(because I have seriously been slacking lately and I’m sorry!)
(And let’s just all hope that working on AGT won’t turn into writing RENT or Hair fanfiction because it’s a serious possibility.)
(But it’s kind of impossible to see Hair and NOT want to go home and write some Berger/Claude immediately.)
(Maybe it’s not impossible for everyone, but it is for me.)
(But I will try to stay away from writing other things until I at least finish another chapter of AGT.)
(But I can’t make any promises.)
(But I will promise that I will try.)
You know how I mentioned that Brendon’s senior-year-of-college-hippie-fuck-buddy was ‘played by’ Steel Burkhardt?
Well, I went to see HAIR today, which he is currently playing Berger in and I finally met him! YAAAAAY. And I got to dance on stage at the end and I hugged him while he was still dressed as Berger and sweaty and shirtless (wearing a vest, but no shirt!) and ugh fuck he is just so damn attractive I can’t even handle it and I saw his penis because there is a nude scene in Hair and it was a very nice penis and oh man I just. I just. I can’t even handle this. I just needed to share this with everybody because I have been in love with this dude for months since I first saw him in Hair on Broadway back in August and sjdhgurdhgsieoghurgh OKAY YEAH THAT’S ALL.
I know you guys probably don’t care but I just. Yeah.
I need to pull myself away from writing RENT fanfiction and work on AGT instead.
Let’s all watch a video of pretty people singing a pretty song.
(Adam Chanler-Berat — pretty sure you guys all probably know him by now — and Jennifer Damiano. Henry and Casey in the story.)
I’m having a pretty intense Adam Chanler-Berat spam going on on my personal tumblr right now, and what kind of person would I be if I didn’t share the adorableness with everybody possible?
And it’s totally acceptable because he is Henry in the story so it’s not me just randomly posting the most adorable little face, it actually makes sense.
(Seeing RENT at the New World Stages again has intensified my Adam obsession. It’s a problem. The fact that he is leaving RENT soon is causing me to slip into a depression. I just hope that he immediately joins another cast of another show so that when I go back to New York in the summer, I can see him again and hopefully finally meet him. AHAJHdfsjdhgjdgdgn.)
If you guys haven’t seen the new Muppets movie yet, you should really get on that.
Here’s a song that makes me really happy.
It will more than likely end up on my writing playlist.
And it was recently decided that I would be seeing RENT Off-Broadway again.
that I get to see Marcus Paul James and Adam Chanler-Berat again.
I have a Christmas Eve tradition of watching RENT (by myself, singing along, usually ugly-crying, you know, the usual.)
This really doesn’t have anything to do with anything, but I am feeling super sappy and sentimental over RENT right now, and since Marcus is in the final Broadway cast — the cast of the Filmed Live on Broadway DVD, I figured I’d share this way-overplayed/the-only-song-most-people-even-know-from-RENT song. Because even though it’s totally overplayed and the only song a lot of people know from RENT, it really is beautiful.
Plus, Marcus does the male solo and klsjhdtgkihruigashuigh NO WORDS TO DESCRIBE THE BEAUTY.
If anything, just watch from 1:58 - 2:13.
