My tickets are not bad (off to the left side, Row D), but SECOND ROW CENTER! Help me people…talk me back from the ledge that will have me abandoning my wonderful husband for the performance, because I'm like . . .
Um, I think Darren and Stephen said it all, Lilikoiluv. I mean, how often does one get a chance to see him up soooo close. I saw him six rows from the stage on Broadway in an aisle seat (of Center Orchestra, to the right end of Center Orchestra) and it was fantastic to see his facial expressions so close. But SECOND row!!! It's too hard to beat that. (Sorry, hubbie.) And I'm sure you can sell your ticket.
Welcome back from your trip, btw, Lilikoiluv! So nice to hear you had a wonderful time!
I've been trying to keep my hopes and theorizing regarding his comment about 2017, but Darren never lets things lip like that unless things are pretty much a done deal, so I'm excited!
And YES! to everything you mentioned above, Poppy! No EP for me though, I
desperately need want him to release a full album! I'll also continue to hope that he'll have the opportunity to workshop a new dramatic play that makes it way to Broadway. I'll also take a new comedy or musical too, but I think he would so relish the challenge of a dramatic play role. *crosses fingers for any and all of these to happen*
Yes! I've been trying to keep my hopes in check, but like you said, it is unusual for Darren to let things like that slip. And combine that with Tim Davis being given the ok, to post an instagram (on August 24) about working with Darren on a project, AND additionally, looking at Darren's recent haircut videos (which as Lin pointed out, seems to indicate something relevant is about to happen, given that he chose the same day of the month--September 18--as the haircut photos for Glee six years ago), . . . well, it just sounds like something is up.
haha! Ok, Lilikoiluv, no EP for you.
I prefer a full album too (but I'll take an EP too, or even a single).
Oh yes! I would be so happy if Darren workshopped a dramatic play too! I think if Darren brought one of his own theater pieces to Broadway, or off-Broadway, whether it is a musical or a dramatic play (or a comedy), as long as it originated from him,
I would be so happy. But at the same time, I agree, I am really interested in seeing him in a dramatic play, since except for White Rabbit Red Rabbit,
he hasn't done that yet.
And even if he didn't workshop his own project, but is cast in an original theater production and not as a replacement (prefer a play, but a musical would be good too), I'll be very happy. Having his own project being workshopped would be even better!
Have I mentioned that I'm trying to keep my excitement, hopes, and theorizing in check?
haha! It's hard not to get our hopes up high, isn't it? But it really does seem as if Darren is breaking away from his modus operandi, which usually is to be silent, until an announcement happens at the last minute (Hedwig and the Angry Inch, The Little Mermaid
at the Hollywood Bowl). Instead, he's giving little spoilers to his fans.
