Daddycatcher has been itching to get back to posting but this week has been so hectic. Brace yourselves, Daddycatcher has a busy January lined up, so he might go easy on the postings.
But what a week!?! Daddycatcher was all over the place!
Daddycatcher, the Big Man, and Miss Jenn all went to see Gypsy at the St. James Theatre. The revival (starring Patti LuPone, Boyd Gaines and Laura Benanti) ends tomorrow and we wanted to see it one last time. Or, in Miss Jenn’s case, for the first time. Brilliance!
Daddycatcher almost turned around and slapped an old queen because he was humming every song in the show. Daddycatcher paid to hear La LuPone and La Benanti sing, not you, sir! Shut up! All Daddycatcher had to do was turn around and give him the death stare and he remained quiet for the rest of the show.
Trash TV, there is nothing like it! And Daddycatcher spent three hours in front of the TV on Monday night devouring every bit of deliciousness that was Gossip Girl, Bromance, and True Beauty.
Bromance will be covered in Daddycatcher’s belated recap. But Gossip Girl started off 2009 with a bang…Chuck getting high in India and in the principal’s office, Dan and Serena doing it again, Rufus and Lily have a son, and the introduction of Chuck’s uncle, Jack Bass. As played by Desmond Harrington, Jack Bass would definitely have been Daddycatcher’s CATCH OF THE DAY.
Meanwhile, over at ABC, True Beauty is trying to convince us that inner beauty is just as important than outer beauty. NO, it isn’t!?! And since we’re talking about outer beauty, have we seen the 10 contestants…they really aren’t all that attractive. Ray looks like he’s high, Chelsea was wisely told that she needs a “make under,” and Joel doesn’t look any better than any of the bartenders at Splash. Hadiyyah-lah was sent packing for being the least attractive…and she didn’t leave quietly! To be honest, she didn’t do anything quietly. Daddycatcher is hooked!!!
Daddycatcher and Miss Jenn hauled ass to the Barrymore Theatre to see Norbert Leo Butz and Raúl Esparza in the rip-roaring revival of Speed-the-Plow.
Norbert replaced the mercury-ailing Jeremy Piven and revitalized the production. Raúl and Elisabeth Moss now have a genuine actor to play off of and their performances have been enhanced. These guys should be bigger stars!!
Daddycatcher spent Wednesday evening memorizing two monologues for his first acting audition in four years. He also had his roommate take pictures of him so that he can make his own headshot.
Also on Wednesday, Daddycatcher began getting addicted to “If U Seek Amy” from Britney Spears’ new CD, Circus.
Bernadette was on Ugly Betty. Daddycatcher wants a Bernadette vs. Wilhelmina Slater cat fight. The two Broadway witches of Into the Woods duking it out!!!! It’s the last midnight, bitches!!!!
Also, stopped by Seth Rudetsky’s Broadway Chatterbox to check out Christopher Sieber, who is starring in Shrek the Musical. Chris was able to dish about all the craziness he has seen on Broadway, including a nightmarish Betty Buckley in Triumph of Love.
Daddycatcher was surprised to find out that Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Karina Smirnoff from Dancing with the Stars were dating. Daddycatcher was even more surprised that they are engaged. Oh well, another ballroom dancer that’s off the market.
And now, Daddycatcher is going to enjoy the snow that is falling in New York. He better not fall on his ass while he’s walking in it.
