Five hour rehearsal with Sergio

Jen and Glenn Close

Well, I just got home and have to head back to the show. We worked with Sergio for five hours today changing a few things in the choreography. Now I’ve been in this show since La Jolla and so it’s going to take me a bit to get this into my body…since my best dancing is done with a gun to my head, but it was actually fun. The whole cast and Sergio were in great spirits. He thought the show looked pretty good except for a few tweaks. Bobby ‘s wife Jennylyn and Geddy came by as did Jack Noseworthy and their friends from Mexico…I believe the actresses’ names were both Angelica and one is on the Spanish version of Ugly Betty and the other is their Meryl Streep equivalent. Very nice and saw the show four times already.

I’m also writing to tell everyone I can’t seem to reply to any of my emails…my computer expertise is on par with my dancing…so give me time to bring it in to get it fixed and know I’m not ignoring any of you. Also, GLENN CLOSE came to the show again last night with her new husband. He brought about 30 people from his job who work at an amazing pharmaceutical company in NJ…She is tiny, beautiful and her enthusiasm and joy fill the entire theatre. Such a pleasure to talk with her again…OK off to tonights show and try as I may I’m going to remember some of the new choreography…

    Wow. 5 hours of new choreography. Is it just the ensemble or the entire cast?

    But, I am excited about the new choreography. Knowing you, I am sure you will get it down in no time! I am glad I will be able to see the new dancing next week.

    Glenn Close! That had to be very exciting. That is cool that her husband brought 30 people. Jersey Boys is popular.

    Hmm. That stinks about the computer problem. I wish I could help but I am not too smart with computers.

    Hi Jennifer,

    Glad to hear that things are going well. I know you will get all of the new steps down with no problem. Wow Glenn Close, that must have been so cool.
    I always check out the crowd before the show starts to see what celebs may be around. The night we were there with Peter, we had the Snapple Lady..Wendy Kaufman & her husband sitting two rows in front of us. In chatting with her, it turned out she & Pete know some of the same comics. Both she & her husband were very nice.

    The kids are doing well & we all send our love.
    Did you ever get to watch Pete’s dvd? He will have a new one out soon if you would like a copy.

    Talk to you when your computer is fixed.
    Love, Stacey
