FREAKING OUT.

As mentioned in my post yesterday, I have been working at the offices of the American Theatre Wing these past few days. The American Theatre Wing puts on the Tony Awards every year, which, as we all know, is my most favorite night of the year. Let us just revisit last year's Tony Awards post, as well as the photo of my favorite person from that event:



I know. Le sigh. How we love her.

So I think you will all understand the intensity of the events that just unfolded:

Yesterday, one of the women who works in the office told me that if they had extra tickets for the Tony rehearsal on Sunday, they would give me a pair. Naturally, I totally freaked out and was beyond excited.

A few hours ago, the Executive Director of the American Theatre Wing was walking past my desk and asked me what I was doing Sunday night. I told him I would, obviously, be watching the Tony's and weeping periodically. He then said all easy breezy, "Well, if I have a few extra tickets would you like to go?"

This is what was going through my head:

"WOULD I LIKE TO GO? WOULD I LIKE TO GO TO THE TONY'S??? SERIOUSLY??? ARE YOU JOKING ME? IA OWEITSKDGSDJKGHSHG YESYSYSSSS!?!??!?"

And this is what came out of my mouth:
"UHUAHFUHAUAAHHAHHAUHAHAHAHAAAHA YESSSSSSSSHSHSHAAHAAA."

After he left and went to some meetings, he returned to the office with a few envelopes and began writing names on them. He then handed me an envelope, with my name clearly printed, and inside were 2 tickets. Right next to each other. To the Tony Awards. At Radio City Music Hall. In the Mezzanine. Not the nose bleeds.

I peed a little and told him I wanted to hug him. He said that wouldn't be necessary.

So, ladies and gents, my sister and I will be putting on our Sunday clothes and mingling with Broadway's best. And, isn't it appropriate that my post last year was "The Night The Girls Showed Up At The Tony's?" Because this year the girls really ARE showing up! I am one of the girls!

AND LIZA MINNELLI WILL BE THERE WITH HER TWO TA-TAS BECAUSE SHE IS NOMINATED FOR LIZA AT THE PALACE.

I WILL BE IN THE SAME ROOM AS LIZA WITH A Z!!!!!

I will be in heaven. And I know this will not be the last time I go to the Tony's.

Because the next time I go, I will WIN.
