Adventures with the band :D  

Wow, it's been ages since I posted anything /o\ But in case anyone is still hanging around here, I figured I post some pics of Matty and co that I took in June :D

It was such a perfect thing to do — go to New York to see The Boys in the Band with my wonderful friends [personal profile] elrhiarhodan , pooh_collector, [personal profile] angelita26 and [personal profile] sherylyn ♥ I know [profile] cookielaura saw the play, too — I hope you're gonna post your share of the fun, too :D

Oh, the play is soooooooo good. Every single one of the boys is brilliant and it was so exiting being so close to them, watching them live on stage ♥ I think the one that surprised me most was Robin De Jesus who plays Emory — I loved him, heee.

Our Matty is more of an observer throughout the play but the first 10 minutes it's just him and Jim Parsons having a conversation while Matty gradually loses all of his clothes :D :D :D And we had such a great seats that I got to see everything — and I mean EVERYTHING when he got into the shower :D :D :D :D :D Now I can die happy, lol :D

Of course part of the fun had to be stage door stalking — I got 7 out of 9, only Jim and Zach didn't come out but all the other boys did, heee. And here are some pics:

1. Standing ovation, of course :D




2. Friday evening


3. Saturday afternoon


This is my favorite one ♥

There's a limit of how many pics I can include in one post, so for the other boys let me just put here two pages from the photobook I made after the trip :P




Tuc Watkins liked the sparkly fedora I was wearing - according to him Brian has underwear like that :D :D :D Brian denied, lol :P


This is now hanging up on my wall ♥

We happened to be in New York during the pride weekend, the city was filled with people wearing colorful outfits, carrying little rainbow flags ♥ A the stage door on Sat there were two elderly gentlemen dressed in colorful suits - they were celebrating their anniversary ♥. I think all the boys noticed their outfits, when Matt stopped by our little corner, he showed them the rainbow socks he was wearing ♥ The cutest thing ever :D That reminds me - we also saw Simon and the boys leaving the theatre Saturday evening ♥ The entire family was there for the weekend ♥ :D

I also have some video clips which I still haven't gotten to sort and convert the proper way. I guess I will post some once I get it done, hee :D I definitely wanna do some gif sets, too :D But for now the pics will have to do :D

Until next time :*

I really wish I had the money and time to go with you. Going on my own sounded scary and overwhelming but in a group of friends it might be different. This all sounds awesome indeed.

I have not read much about the play, I don't even know what the story is about - when you say he was an observer, what exactly was his role? How much screentime did he have? I always thought he was one of the big three stars, but this sounds more like an ensemble show?

ALL of his clothes? Oh boy ;) Did you know that when going in from reading reviews, or was it a surprise? And perfect seats are perfect! Wouldn't want to sit in upper circle for that LOL
I always want to sit close to stage too, to see their eyes and expressions. Even if it's more expensive.

And stage door pics! I guess I won't have the luck to see Matt at an European convention so stage door is the only way to meet him. Does he recognize you by now?

Side note: on that group picture on the stage he looks so small between all the others!

The basic gist of the play is that friends gather at Jim Parson's home to throw one of the a birthday party but what starts as one innocent evening turns into an ugly mess as more alcohol is consumed and more things are getting said.

Jim Parsons is definitely the main character there, for those 100 minutes he is never in the background, he's always talking, engaging with other characters. All of them are important, their presence has a point but throughout the play sometimes the focus is directed at a specific character while the others become the background. Now, for the first 10 mins it's just Jim and Matt, but then the other boys arrive and obviously they all interact with each other but Matt is usually just hanging around there, throwing in an observation here and there, trying to diffuse the situation when it's getting out of hand. I would say he is sort of like an safety fuse for Jim's character.

What they did during the play - they had these moments where, for example, three of the guys would go into the kitchen, or Matty and Andrew would sit down together and talk, we could see them doing that but the main focus was on Jim and the character he was talking to... I don't know if I'm describing this right, hee... but I liked that, the way they handled it so that no one actually leaves the stage even if it's not their turn to be in the spotlight :D

Zach Quinto is definitely the one with almost no lines, LOLOL... he plays Harold, the birthday boy, and he comes to the party completely stoned so he basically just throws in a line here and there which usually has zero to do with what's going on or is completely the wrong thing to say in a given moments. But every once in a while he says something that just strikes you to the core. It's brilliant but really, he almost has no lines, LOL :D

As for nekkid Matty, I was desperately trying to avoid any spoilers but unfortunately I knew about that before going to see the play. I didn't know it when I was buying the ticket, but then sadly I did find out. It would have been so epic if I hadn't know beforehand :D And the way the stage is built, with two levels, you really don't wanna sit in the first row bc then you can't see the bedroom on the upper level. At the time of purchasing tickets the difference between the premium seats and other seats was only 20 bucks so it was a no brainer to get tickets closer to the stage :D
