Ray Liotta

Last night Ray Liotta and his friend Judy came backstage. He was so cool. I told him when I first got this role and was molding it in La Jolla, a dear intern, Jordan, recommended to me several films to watch for Italian women..this being so great…and come on guess who’s in it?? Anyway he said he was so touched by the show as he grew up in New Jersey and in 7th grade he and his friends would sing “Walk Like A Man”..even though they didn’t know all the words. He said he was moved many times as it brought him back…

Also we has the pleasure of meeting James Moody (Moody’s Mood) after we opened and his wife Linda came back a week ago with her sister and friend and gave me a photo of Moody, who is still going strong on the road…what a gentleman he is and his wife is beautiful inside and out..

    I love hearing about all the celebrities coming back stage. They all seem to love the show (who doesn’t?).

    That is interesting about James Moody. Glad you met his wife last week.

    Hope you will have two great performances on Sunday!

    Hey, Jennifer! I was at the stage door last night – didn’t get a chance to say hi.

    I saw Ray come out of the stage door, but nobody noticed him! It was crazy.

    Hope everything’s wonderful!

    Hi A
    I love meeting the celebrities too. Sara Jessica Parker was so kind, specific, remembered my name and a class act. Catherine Zeta Jones was bubbly, flirtatious, kind and wanted to get back on stage. Kevin Costner..gorgeous…that’s just a few. I love it…

    Hi Elle
    You need to stop me if you see me. I sometimes will recognize your face but I’m so slow I need to put the name with the face. So if you see me running by just grab me. I usually keep going when I leave the stage door unless someone stops me..Like last night someone yelled “Mrs. Valli?? will you sign my program?” sometimes they don’t recognize us cuz we wear so many wigs. thanks for coming..he was a cool dude..xo j
