Mike's crush

A couple weeks ago, I mentioned that Mike has a crush on Bebe Neuwirth.  Yes, Lilith from Cheers and Frasier.  Apparently, she is not only an actress, but a very talented singer and dancer. 

Hmmm...pale, tiny, dark hair...reminds you of anyone...  :)

A few years ago, I found out she would be performing in Cincinnati very close to Mike's birthday.  Guess who got the best birthday gift ever that year?!  :)  The poor girl was suffering from a nasty cold, but she was still absolutely amazing!  Lots of broadway showtunes -- especially from Chicago
Mike will be in NYC on a history department trip for a few days next month.  The organizers of the trip have scheduled them to see a performance of The Addams Family on Broadway.  Having never heard of this production, he wasn't too excited about seeing it -- he was afraid he wasn't going to be getting a real Broadway experience.  Wouldn't you know it, while I was looking up a picture to put with this post, I noticed an ad for The Addams Family on the sidebar.  This is because Bebe Neuwirth is Morticia.  Suddenly he's a lot more excited about seeing it...  :)

Oh yeah, and Nathan Lane is Gomez. 

And now I think we will watch Fame (2009) this weekend.  She's in that, too.
