I used to get excited when I found new KRC pictures but now I just feel weird and dirty.
Katie Rose Clarke had quite an interesting show in Pittsburgh tonight. She is so great as Glinda!! During Popular her high heel broke. She struggled to get it off and threw it on the bed. Then did almost the whole number with only one shoe on. When it came to the part where she uses her wand to make a BALL GOWN for Elphie…she also used the wand to try and make a shoe appear on her foot. This stopped the show. Great improv during this scene!! Bravo Katie (I won the lotto so I was sitting front row center for all of this.) Carmen Cusack did a great job holding back her laughter during the whole shoe problem.
It gets better….
It all happened during the fight scene between Glinda and Elphie. Katie started to twirl her huge magic wand and she twirled it for about two seconds then it went flying into the house. It landed in the net above the pit. People in the audience screamed and ducked. I thought they were going to get there heads chopped off. Katie had quite an expression on her face. She was very shocked. But they kept cool and continued the scene.
She was just great tonight haha. Other then her two problems. She had tears streaming down her face during For Good. Carmen was wiping them away.
I talked to her at the stage door. She had her cute white dog with her. I told her she almost killed us with her wand. She gave us a big hug and said she was so sorry.
She is such a sweetheart and quite the performer.
