The Wiz report for Friday.

What an incredible Opening Night we had! It was thrilling and surreal at the same time. But now that the festivities are over, it's time for me to get back to work!

We had another terrific show this evening. Long John stood out this evening (no pun intended). There were a lot of "oohh"s for his entrance and applause once he was gone. I'm not certain, but I think he cursed more people than he usually does.

Well, despite several test runs by the crew, Spaulding decided to leap out into the house tonight. Unfortunately the patrons in that area couldn't locate him easily. He had rolled to the second row. Once Jay realized that the audience couldn't find him, Jay commented that he wasn't the only who wasn't so good at sports. Once Spaulding got onstage, Jay asked the audience to "give the lady a hand", which they did.

Bob was on a roll, calling the tape over the mouth trick "crap" and saying that the trick works in Texas, not on Broadway.

A great audience and show tonight. There were no sneezes in the audience tonight, but give it a couple of days and you may hear one from backstage left.
Until the next one,
