A CHARLOTTE SHOUT FROM ADAM HALPIN

Greetings from Charlotte, North Carolina! We opened the show to a wonderful audience in Charlotte last night, our 4th city on this exciting, new tour! It's been nothing short of blessing thus far; being able to perform this show every night in different cities for eager, supportive, energetic audiences.

Joining this cast as one of 3 newbies (in addition to Lexi and Toby) has been a thrilling experience. It's not only a great learning experience as an actor to be working alongside such talent 8 times a week, but it's been a blast getting to know everyone as people. We're less than a month into performances and it already feels like home away from home. It's heartwarming to know that a cast can get so close, so quickly...especially, in such an often isolating experience - on tour - being away from friends and family.

Charlotte is a great time. We had a fun opening night party at this lounge called Mez, last night...and because we're staying in such a metropolitan part of town, there is plenty to do: Museums, Spas, Restaurants, Cafes, etc. It should be a great week.

Good times are surely ahead as we travel this wonderful country and I hope you continue to periodically check our blog for more sights and sounds from the tour. A huge thanks to all of our fans!

I'll be blogging next week (via video) from my home city of Philadelphia. Look out! :)

Best-
Adam

It's so great to hear you're having a good time. I met you in Cleveland and you seemed so comfortable in your role.

If things go my way, I'll be able to catch up with everyone again in St. Louis this summer.

I saw you in Durham, you really are fabulous. Looking forward to seeing you in some other things as well. The show was fabulous, i sobbed like never before. It makes a difference to be able to sit in the front row, i don't think i will ever be able to go back to my usual seats.

Thank you for the first fun thing i have done since moving to the South!

Hope the weather was more to your liking in Charlotte. ;) You all were amazing on Sunday afternoon, I got to see it one final time...and I enjoyed it even more than my 1st time. Good luck the rest of the tour and thanks for the memories!

I saw the tour on Sunday in Charlotte. Having seen the original cast at the Nederlander in September '96, I was prepared to be a little disappointed. But no such thing. It was a stellar production, and the energy was great. Thanks to all of you for such a great theater experience.
