Greeting Megan Hilty in Shubert Alley

After Blithe Spirit last night, Kevin, Roxie and I were just basking in the glow of seeing 5 Time Tony Winner Angela Lansbury (and loitering in) in Shubert Alley, when I noticed Megan Hilty strolling by. Megan is currently starring as Doralee Rhodes in 9 to 5 the Musical. Doralee is the character Dolly Parton played in the 1980 movie Nine to Five.

I called out to her and she stopped to chat with us. She is absolutely one of the nicest young stars on Broadway. I had such fun at 9 to 5 and I loved that Megan's sort of playing Dolly playing Doralee. You see, Dolly was my first Diva. Megan captures her exuberance perfectly and has a sweet voice, joyful smile and looks to match.

Thanks for the chat, Megan!

Awww, that is so sweet. I've had some wonderful chances to chat with actors at the stage door as I get my Playbill signed. The overwhelming majority are incredibly gracious.
