Every so often we get an invitation we just can't pass up. I was offered two tickets to see "Party Face," a play currently running at City Center. The synopsis, director (Amanda Bearse) and cast all intrigued me so I asked my friend Patty Devery (who should be writing about Broadway and the show world for a major publication or website HELLO HIRE HER) if she wanted to be my date. She was in, so I was too.
There's always an understandable bit of "if you like the show we'd appreciate you letting people know about it" attached to these offers, which is totally fine. It would be different if they wanted to pay me to publicize crap. If I like something and it's appropriate, I'm good with using our social media channels to give followers a recommendation.
In this particular instance my wheels started spinning a bit. The cast of five includes Hayley Mills. HAYLEY MILLS, HELLO! The notion of HAYLEY MILLS eating our ice cream threw me into a delirium. I made an offer: can I throw the cast a little post-show ice cream party and take a few photos? Agreed! It worked out: we loved the show (or I wouldn't be plugging it) and they loved the ice cream (or I wouldn't be saying they did).
Seeing anyone enjoying the thing that we created from our own little brains is still an amazing feeling. When the person holding your pint is an icon, it's really... indescribable.
If you're interested in the show here is a discount ticket offer for ya. Tell them we sent you!
