The opening night vibe was solidified when photographers and camera crews rushed down the aisle for the curtain call, and Jerry Mitchell and producers, etc. swung onto to stage. All of the women received bouquets of pink roses, and you could see a rollercoaster of emotion on Laura's face: ready to cry one second, ready to party the next.
Going out, I witnessed the surreal scene of Joan Rivers congratulating Laura's family and telling her mom, Lorna Bundy Jones, that she should be very proud.
The cast, crew and audience repaired to Cirpiani, a cavernous restaurant across the street from Grand Central Station, to party for a few hours. That affair was trolled by numerous photographers and camera crews.
Both Xtra and Entertainment Tonight were there, and apparently Rosie O'Donnell will be talking about the show on The View today, so if you're interested in seeing how it went, tune them in.
