Tonight was the Opening of "Hello, Dolly!" at the Fulton Theatre in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
I sat with Christen and her sister Kerry for the show. Christen is the Company Manager for the Fulton, and we've worked together as dressers on the Fulton's productions of Les Miserables and 42nd Street.
The production was fantastic, and had a surprisingly modern feel to it - great job, cast!
The opening night party was held at the Hamilton Club on Orange Street:

What a great night! We ended up closing Mollys, and then Julie and I sat in the car and chatted for 2 more hours! What an unusual thing for me to be able to watch a show from the audience and not backstage! What a treat!
