What did I tell you?

If you saw Bridget & David's portrait session a couple of weeks ago, you might remember me saying that she was in a play. I also said that it was amazing funny and awesome and that you definitely should go see it. Well I'm no expert on theater, but the critics over at the New York Times certainly are and they just came out with their review of "Is He Dead?" , the play that she is starring in.

Here's a little excerpt:

“Is He Dead?,” a previously unproduced play by the long-dead Mark Twain, has at last made its Broadway debut. And for something that’s basically been lying immobile for more than a century, gathering dust in archives, it has a remarkably sprightly step.

...once Mr. Butz puts on a pink dress, this Tony-winning comic actor (“Dirty Rotten Scoundrels”)... shows the true comic genius of which he is made. From that moment the whole production feels as if it’s been pumped through with nitrous oxide. Jokes you would swear you would never laugh at suddenly seem funny.

And if you're interested here's the link to the New York Times review of "Is He Dead?"

I just have to say that I'm so incredibly proud of Bridget (and the entire cast of course) for doing such an amazing job. I always knew you were going to be a star B, looks like you're on your way. Congratulations!
