After the final performance of The Wild Party on Saturday night, a few friends and I headed over to Urbo on 42nd and 8th for a party celebrating Hamilton’s first week on Broadway, sponsored for Hennessy. There were fun drinks and fun people – and lots of dancing, oh, and a photobooth.
The only person I asked to take a picture with was Jonathan Groff and when I asked him if my friend could take a photo, he said, “Oh here, I can take a selfie!” Below is the end result (and more photos after the jump!):
I’ve never read any of David Sedaris’ books (I know, I know, I should), but this looks interesting. I’ll have to read up on his life first. Although Jonathan Groff was great in Spring Awakening, I’ve never been a fan of his work onstage since (he’s just not a very good stage actor, IMHO), but he seems like he’s a better fit for onscreen. Also: Dennis O’Hare.
Last night after unpacking a car full of stuff into my apartment, I made my way downtown (via my mom’s car) to Joe’s Pub for Jonathan Groff’s 9:30pm concert. I didn’t have a ticket (and it was sold out) but I was able to get in anyways due to left over tickets. Groff performed maybe a dozen songs for a total of thirty minutes. It was WAY too brief! I particularly enjoyed hearing him sing Easy to Be Hard (from HAIR). It was a good time and he has a fantastic voice so it was really nice to hear him sing live again.
(The above photos are mine, but you can see more on Playbill that my friend Matt took here – and he even used one of mine!)
