The one where I chat with Randy and Nick . . .  
As promised in this post, my report of the Kinky Boots national tour opening night in Las Vegas on September 4th is finally ready.

Oh...This is so great. You're a lucky girl.
I'm glad that you could talk to Randy and meet to Nick ... They are so cute.

It had to be a wonderful evening. I'm happy for you.

Thank you very much, Linda! :-)

That must have been an amazing night!! So happy for you that your efforts paid off.
I can imagine how thrilled you were when you actually saw Randy in the audience lol And how clever of you to go over your old enrollment cards just in case ;)
ITA with you that Randy would have been great in this role. Also ITA about how a dancer should carry himself on stage. I actually think Randy has that beautiful quality in him. You can see it in the way he sits, talks , walks and of course dances *sigh*
And as for the other treats- Jerry Mitchel's BF is HAWT in and out of drag. He could get into RPDR like that! doing good drag which is twice as challenging.
And btw- Jerry directed the original Broadway production of one of my fav musicals Legally Blond :)
Lucky you!!! Thank you so much for posting and sharing that my dear Linda.
*hugs you tight*

p.s
Did you get the PM I sent you about a week ago?

Hi, V! It really was an amazing night! I still can't even believe it went down like that. LOL

I knew you'd appreciate Ricky Schroeder - everything about him just screams STAR!!! He'd be so great on RPDR. Jerry has choreographed and directed several Bway hits - Hairspray is one of my faves.

You're right, Randy does carry himself like that when he walks in RL. I was really surprised to see it the first time I met him because he didn't do it on QAF. But then I saw him emerge from backstage into the bar area after Silence with his bag on his shoulder walking just like a dancer walks - rib cage lifted, shoulders down, feet turned out - I was like OMG! He really IS a dancer. LOL

I did get your PM. I'm just so backlogged on email and PMs right now. I'm trying to catch up - hopefully I can get to it in the next few days.

Hugs,
Linda

I can actually think of quite a few moments during QaF (not necessarily Babylon dance floor moment or the prom/pride scenes...) where Randy lends his innate 'dancer' skills to Justin and it is very present in how he walks, sits and even stands, not to mention the way he's using his hands in such a beautiful expressive way. I love that.
Thanks again for that report
*hugs back*

How can I have missed these moments???? LOL

Which scenes are you thinking of?
guavejuice: youreeinmyveinsguavejuice on September 11th, 2014 04:53 am (UTC)
Umm... well, I've been thinking of THIS one, for example *points at icon*
But also some other scenes such as way back in 107 or 108 when Justin confronts his parents in the living room while Brian is there with him- - he's obviously so emotionally distracted but his body is so poised and almost regal. And then when Brian asks him if he's coming Justin doesn't answer, he just turns his face to look at his mom and then turns back to step out of the room- and it's so beautiful. I believe Randy's natural dancer's skills were so well displayed here.
Oh and then there's the scene where Daphne and Justin enter the tattoo shop- he simply glides on the floor and again there's this distinctive 'snap' of the head when he turns to look around or to look at Daphne.
He's just amazing like that, isn't he? ;)
*hugs*
If I would come up with more I'd let you know *g*

Sounds like you had an awesome time, you lucky person ;-) I love the movie 'Kinky Boots', and would love to see the show live. It's one of those stories that just screams "MUSICAL"!!
