Tonight at the Delacorte Theatre in Central Park, the rain began in earnest just before the 8:00 curtain. We had a good time waiting. Some of the audience began singing songs like Put on a Happy Face, You Are My Sunshine, etc.
At almost 9:00 pm, the leads of Twelfth Night, Raul Esparza, Anne Hathaway, Audra McDonald and Julie White, took the stage in gorgeous costume, under umbrellas. Alas, it wasn't to perform, only to announce that they wouldn't be able to go on with the show tonight because of the lateness - there's an agreement with Central Park that they must be out at midnight. Sigh.
Hopefully I'll get another chance to see the actual performance before it closes on July 12th. With me were my dear friends Chris from Everything I Know I learned from Musicals, Byrne from StageBuzz.com, Mondschein from Third Row Mezzanine and Russell.
