chadchronicles said: I was at the show again last night, Sun Aug 24. And it kills me to report that Will was on as the Porter. :( You missed him by one day!
GOD DAMMITBut it’s actually okay I had a whole different new kind of fun that night and I’m happy about that.
Oh my god, how do people do two shows in a row? Well, they probably don’t get up and do a swim workout the morning of, that’s for sure. *Lesson learned*
Erik Abbott-Main is the Porter and yes, I will be your friend. Tara Franklin is the finest new Hecate to come along in a great long while and it was so, so enjoyable. Tony Bordonaro as the Speakeasy Bartender is tons of fun, even when he spits at you. James Graber to a couple holding hands in the elevator: “you should know that holding hands in this hotel is *tacky*” /swoon. DrownedManians will be pleased to know Jesse Kovarsky is the Boy Witch (meh) and Olly Hornsby-Sayer is Macduff (good).
After all those good things there was just no way the late show could stack up. Also, the point of this excursion, boosting the chance of a Will Seefried experience, went unfulfilled. But Leslie Kraus was the Sexy Witch, which rocked. I spent most of the show in the bar with Evene and Julian. That was easily the best decision of the night. Megh Dixon and Zach Martens work together beautifully and swapped Calloway legends with me, and reminded me that sometimes the best thing about Sleep No More is that you can go there, flirt your face off with people and be pleased that’s all that comes of it.
But, alas: no Will *sobs*
Just booked tickets for my first-ever double show. ANYONE GOT ANY TIPS?
(Sorry, after three years of getting that question I was dying to ask it myself)
the-floo-network said: So I am one of the new fans who have been sucked in immediately by SNM - and I have been trying to figure out (with the help of your spectacular cast list) which cast members I have seen so far. Upon checking your list, AND visiting last Friday...I STUMBLED UPON WILL AS THE PORTER. *tears* So Friday's may be your best bet to grab the awesome that is Will. My question though, is about one of the cast members who play the boy witch. He has dirty blonde hair, longish? Do you know who this may be?
Thanks for the tip!
As for your boy witch, sounds like that might have been Conor Doyle, who I am told is back in the mix.
It wasn’t Ed Warner, which is just obscene.Also please note my cast list is way out of date; at-the-pit-of-acheron has carried that work forward.
kill-your-daleks said: I'm an Australian, and was lucky enough to see SNM last year. I think it changed me on a molecular level. Anyway - do you happen to know the likelihood of the show being extended past October 26th? I've been fortunate enough to manage a trip back to the States, but can't arrive in New York any earlier than October 30th. I feel like it might just about break my heart if I miss out by four days! I know you don't strictly have insider info, but any inkling you might have would be appreciated!
I don’t think there’s any need to worry about SNM closing until some time in 2015. And even then, I have my doubts. But you should be good for the remainder of this year.
So. Will Seefried has returned to the McKittrick for a limited run. Is it like he never left? No. It’s like he just kept getting better while he was away. Crazy new moves. Rolls around on the floor giggling and dancing with himself. Really knows how to drive his hand into his own back like he’s never been held before. Breaks your heart into a million pieces. Breaks the mirror into a million pieces, too (sorry to everyone who got 1:1s after me, and don’t worry Will, I was just as surprised as you were). Cries better than anyone else when that slore Boy Witch walks all over him. Makes a mess of the (incidentally: gross and barely edible new) white chocolate chips. Still does the thing with your legs, so long as your having been internet thirsty about it isn’t too creepy/intimidating, and still slams the gate right in your face. God bless him.
So if someone wants to be a real dear and leak a couple of future performance dates I’d really, really like to go see Will’s Porter at least one more time before he goes away again. Y’all can email me at the usual place with tips, thanks!
IN OTHER NEWS there’s barely any other news from that show, other than that Erik Abbott-Main is a swell, verbose Banquo, and that seeing Maximilian and Violet together in the bar is a rare treat these days but fills my heart with glee. Can (and did) literally spend a whole loop just chatting with them and getting caught up on their plan to maybe shave Toledo.
