When The Addams Family came to the Pantages theater in Hollywood, we decided it was finally time to expose our Diego to the world of live theater, Broadway style. We invited Giancarlo's cousins, Claudia and Ana, and his nephew, Evan along.
We've had a fantastic time over the years at the Pantages. I've seen Mamma Mia, Wicked, Billy Elliot, and other favorites over the recent years.
This time was marked by a literal brush with fame. Soon after we took our seats, waiting for the show to begin, a man with his two young kids came up to me, and as I was sitting on the aisle, asked if I knew what seat numbers the empty ones in the middle were. I looked up, suddenly speechless. Giancarlo was unphased, however, and proceeded to answer him. I looked down the row and Claudia and Ana, with my saucer eyes mirroring their saucer eyes.
Giancarlo did not recognize this famous face. But moments later, they determined that those were his seats, so I stood up so he could brush right by me and then settled himself down with his two kids right next to Claudia.
Of course, I never get used to this sort of thing happening, but this was super up close and personal!
