Taylor Hicks In Rehearsals For Broadway's GREASE


Thank you OBG for this updated information on Taylor and his starring role in Grease!

All three local New York TV news stations (WABC, WCBS, WNBC) should be streaming video on or around opening night, so watch those stations if you're in the area. If you get any media, let me know and I'll post it here! He has his own dressing room at the Brooks Atkinson Theater, so if you are sending him anything, it will get to him, personally. Send all well wishes to Taylor Hicks care of The Brooks Atkinson Theatre, 256 W 47th St, New York, NY 10036, (212) 719-4099.

Cameras are allowed in the theater, but they don't want you taking pictures (but, if your camera happens to 'accidently' go off in the theater and you 'accidently' get a shot of Taylor, I'd be more than happy to post it here for you!) That goes for video as well. That said, you can snap away until your hearts content when the actors come out of the stage door when they leave the theater. They usually all sign autographs and take pictures with fans. We know Taylor is GOOD at this, eh? He loves his fans and will accomodate all of them, I'm sure.

Doors open 1/2 hour before the performances. Dress is casual.

The rep from the theater said she hadn't seen Taylor yet, but the press has already started coming in!

Keep watching for promo pics and interviews with Taylor leading up the show!

The anticipation and excitement is building! I know there is a lot of controversy on the other boards regarding posting any video or audio taping - but I hope this leaks out somewhere. I would love to hear and see him perform this number as I live on the west coast and its too far to attend.

Hey Bernie! I can't wait until the media starts coming in! I know Taylor will blow the roof off of the Brooks Atkinson Theater. I think a lot of people will be quite surprised at Taylor's performance. Mark my words.

I am so freaking excited that I can barely stand it!! LOL Does that mean I'm not a music "snob"? The press he's gotten the past couple of weeks has been amazing, thank God! I'm with you, soulthing, he's going to blow the roof off that place!

I work in the city and pass the theater daily. Rumor has it that he isn't due at rehearsal till June 1st.

I'm going to see him in August. I wouldn't make a trip all the way from Tx to NYC for anyone else. I just can't wait!!!
What this man has done to me...

Thank goodness...everyone is positive about Taylor on Broadway here...and at Chill's blog. I am puzzled as to why anyone would not be excited...actually, puzzled is not the word...AMAZED is more like it! He has come a long way baby... and he IS going to blow the roof off for sure. We will see yet another side to a man that is multifaceted...multitalented.

Did the anomymous person stating that they would be at the stage door...happen to be Brightlite? LOL! hahahahahahhaha! Just kidding!

Thanks for the Timer...what a clever thing to do!

anon- any pictures you can get I'd be most appreciative of. Unlikely I'll make a show since I'm like on the other side of the country, so I'll be looking for good meet and greet pics (or any pics) of Taylor. I'm also looking for promo pics of him on the sides of buses, trains and billboards.

Oh yea, I'm also looking for a PLAYBILL too, so if anyone can pick one up for me, that would be so awesome :)

I won't be able to go, so I want to hear/see as much of this as I possible can. All you lucky people who will be seeing this- I want details..!!!

The Playbills are printed. I picked one up today. Sure, I'm in the city everyday. I can take pictures.

soulthing said...

anon - the Playbill you picked up today - it didn't have Taylor's info in there yet, did it? I suspect they wouldn't start giving those out until June 6.

chill said...

Someone ought to let them know that if they make the Playbill available online, we will buy them! :-)

I'll try to get a bunch of playbills.

I will for sure get an extra one for you, griz.

soulthing said...

Thank YOU anon!! I really do appreciate that!! Let me know when you get it and I'll email you an address to send it! Muah!!! ;)
