Wayne Bell, Laura Bell Bundy's grandfather, is having breakfast at the Evergreen restaurant, a little diner on 47th Street, when yet another round of Bell and Bundy family friends walk through the door. After a rousing round of greetings, folks at the neighboring table apparently inquire what has everyone in the city. Like any proud grandparent, Wayne is only too happy to regale them with the tale of his granddaughter who is starring in Legally Blonde.
The crew of family and friends who have piled into town for opening weekend gets right down to the Bundy's next door neighbors when Laura was born.
Today, we are off to see two other Kentucky-connected shows: 110 in the Shade, which stars Ashland's Steve Kazee opposite Audra McDonald at Studio 54 and Gulf View Drive, the third chapter of Arlene Hutton's Nibroc Trilogy.
We'll also be catching up with the Tates Creek High School senior trip, which will get a little time with Laura after this afternoon's matinee.
