We got our "Sugar Daddy" at the Ferry Building location while we were there: 



It's flavored with Dulce de Leche!


Here it is! As Lauren Zizes said about her box of Valentines' candy, "It sucked."



"I had to make sure it all sucked."


:laughing  Just kidding.  It was delish! I was worried that it might be too sweet, but it was really good! There was a line and most of the people in the line were ordering the Sugar Daddy ice cream!  thumbs up

And it's still ok if none of your real life friends/family know about it, because they don't connect your Twitter name with your real name.  Can you change your twitter name, if you wanted?   And hey, I think your husband and mine have something in common.  :amused

Thanks for posting the TheaterMania pics, Lilikoiluv!

Aw, glad you were able to try the Sugar Daddy ice ceam!    So cool that most people were ordering that flavor!  I enjoyed your pics too.  Thanks for posting them!

For the Wednesday November 23 matinee at 2 pm with Darren, TicketMaster is selling really good Orchestra seats (including near the stage) for $85.  Some of these seats ordinarily would go for $150.   There are also some good Orchestra seats that are farther from the stage going for $45-$65.  You can go to the Hollywood Pantages Theatre website and click on "Buy Tickets," which will connect you to Ticketmaster.  Here is the link:

I also received an email from Goldstar about discount tickets for Hedwig at the Hollywood Pantages during the show's last week in Los Angeles.

Here is the link and it is for 4 shows: Wednesday November 23 at 2 pm ($39), Wednesday November 23 at 8 pm ($49), Friday November 25 at 2 pm ($39), and Friday November 25 at 8 pm ($49) (NOTE:  The Friday evening show at 8 pm is with Lena Hall).    I'm not sure where exactly the seats are located, but there are Orchestra seats for the 2 pm shows.  You have to sign up with Goldstar to purchase the tickets.  I checked on BroadwayWorld message board, and the majority of folks feel that Goldstar is legitimate.  I also called up the Pantages Theatre Box Office and was told that they honor/accept Goldstar tickets

I'm not up to date on the latest on vaccinations for MMR.  If Darren got his series of vaccinations as a child, is that sufficient, or is there a booster for older teens/adults??   In addition, French-kissing multiple folks during the week, during Flu  and cold season, is a risky thing.  If Darren catches the flu, he could be out for several days, depending on how bad are his symptoms.  I say he should just go back to face-licking, or a kiss on the cheek.  :amused

This is late, but just wanted to leave these nice gif sets from Darren and Lena's facebook Q & A for posterity. 

They are so adorable: 
 

 

 
janel-moloney:
If anyone dead or alive could see you in Hedwig, who would it be?

:laughing

And this. Awww. : 
 

 
janel-moloney:
Lena: You have this really cool voice, don’t be afraid of it. 
Darren: Thanks! Everybody else, be very afraid.

And one of Darren's compliments for Lena too:
 

 
janel-moloney:
“The show is called Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Lena Hall won a Tony for her role as Yitzhak in it in New York. Now we’re in Los Angeles where I just try to keep up with her.” x

Thanks so much for posting those gif sets, Lilikoiluv.  That first one was hilarious!  The second one, where Lena talks about how Darren's Tommy is her favorite Tommy, and how she likes the way Darren's Tommy performs Wicked Little Town Reprise, is so wonderful.  Love how that gif set captures that!   And I love how supportive Darren is as well of Lena and her talent, as captured in the 3rd gif set.  :happy face

BWW Exclusive: The Life and Times of HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH

July 23, 2017



ORIGINAL BROADWAY PRODUCTION

[Neil Patrick] Harris, who stayed in the production until August 17, 2014, won the 2014 Tony Award for Best Leading Actor in a Musical, and was followed by Andrew Rannells, who had played the role years before in a regional production. Hedwig was then played by Michael C. Hall, original creator John Cameron Mitchell, Darren Criss, and Taye Diggs. The role of Hedwig did not have an understudy.

[. . . ]

Following the closing night was a previously-scheduled gig by the Tits of Clay. Much of the audience for the final performance went to their show afterwards, which featured surprise performances by Lena Hall, Rebecca Naomi Jones, Darren Criss, Shannon Conley, and Michael C. Hall.


FIRST NATIONAL TOUR


The national tour of the 2014 Broadway production launched at San Francisco's Golden Gate Theatre on October 4, 2016. It initially starred Broadway Hedwig Darren Criss and Tony-winning Yitzhak, Lena Hall. Both are Bay-area natives, so the extended tour-stop was a bit of a homecoming.

. . . [Lena] Hall and [Darren] Criss left the production together on November 27, 2016, after the show's stop in San Diego.

I was lucky enough to see both Criss and Hall in the role, having missed Criss on Broadway - several friends and I travelled to San Francisco for five days, seeing the show three times. We ran into several other fans who were doing the same thing, proving that even though the show had closed, many of the fans were still in love with it and willing to travel to see it even one more time.


[. . . ]

The production was nominated for two Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Awards for the performances of Criss and Hall.
