1. I've mentioned this before, but it's a story I like to tell every time I come across a post about Christina Applegate. In about 2005, I was working at a luxury hotel in Manhattan that had just opened, and we had celebrities coming in non-stop every day. I met everyone from Oprah to Martha Stewart to Will Smith. One night I was working late, and Christina Applegate came in to our lounge to have a drink with her mother. I had just seen her in a musical she was doing on Broadway called Sweet Charity, and I told her how much I enjoyed her performance and loved the show, as I was a big musical theater nerd and was in the show in high school. She spent a good ten minutes talking to me about the show and her work getting it going and rehearsals out of town and so much more. She couldn't have been nicer. Of all the celebrities I interacted with that year, she was definitely the most kind and genuine one that I met, and that conversation is one that I'll always remember. Also, later on, I came to realize that she had broken her foot during preview performances of Sweet Charity, and they were going to shut the whole production down until she convinced the producers and put in her own money to keep the production alive. She kept all of the cast and crew employed, and the show ended up running for 279 performances.

  2. Is the episode our already or does anyone know when it is

  3. I'd love a Sweet Charity revival with someone like Ariana DeBose. I saw the revival with Christina Applegate back in 2003, and she was great, but I'd love to see someone with a solid theater background with amazing singing and dancing skills. That show has so many great numbers, and it's perfect vehicle to showcase someone that's really talented.

  4. I had tickets for one of her first few shows and ended up seeing Julie instead when Lea got COVID. Truly enjoyed the production and am also so glad we can hear Lea this way! I wish I could see Lea too but whew the show is very slow at some parts so idk if it’s worth going back again just for her 😭

  5. Definitely go back if you're able. My roommate and I were both worried about the show being dated or slow, but honestly, we were completely enthralled the whole time, mostly because Lea is just so fantastic that you just can't keep your eyes off of her when she's on stage. I've seen many Broadway shows and her performance is hands-down the best I've seen. Right up there with when I saw Kristin and Idina in previews for Wicked. Just a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

  6. Christina Applegate is amazing. She and her mother were staying at a hotel I was working at almost 20 years ago, and I had a great conversation with them one evening, and she couldn't have been more gracious and kind. Just a genuinely nice person. I really hope she's able to fight this.
