Well it was so exciting walking down Broadway…with smiling policemen and crowds gathering for Broadway on Broadway. We had to meet at the ABC studios on 44th St…and all the Bway shows were gathered in one holding room, which also housed two huge screen TV’s (to watch the show going on outside) and two lengthy tables of FREE food and beverages…every actors dream…

It was so fun hanging out with the other 24 shows. We all usually have the same performing schedule so we hardly see each other except if making plans after the show. I met Donny Osmond, Constantine Mar??? you know from two years ago American Idol…both very sweet. Also LaChanze, Harry Groener, Christine Ebersole, Eden Espinoza, Martin Short, Alan Zweibel (who I did Bunny Bunny with and wrote Billy Crystals one man show and helped Martin short that day) Diane DeGarmo, Hayley Duff, Will Chase, Jenn Collela, and a slew of amazing Bway talent were all in the same room…and Marc Shaiman (who I auditioned for years ago for the Sister Act movie).

When we got on stage to sing “Oh, What A Night”…it was like being a rockstar. You felt you could do no wrong but just have joy, and show your love to all those who came out to see this great event. Thank you everyone for being there. I had a riot…They say 50.000 people were supposedly expected…I couldn’t keep count after 325.
