Wednesday afternoon, we were knee deep into the Great Blizzard of 2010! New York was covered in white out conditions, yet over 1,000 fabulous fans came out to spend the afternoon with us at our new home on the Upper West Side, banana's in tow! It was our Banana Shpeel big Open House at the Beacon Theatre. I got to be part of the festivities, arriving in a old fashioned checkered cab, revealing the marquee, posing for lots of photos, and doing a few interviews! I was overwhelmed at the incredible response from the enthusiastic crowd, many of whom waited for hours in the crazy weather! The first hundred who arrived with a banana got a pair of free tickets to the show! I can't wait to perform for that special "bunch!"
Even through the cold and the wind, the snow and the chill, it was such a fabulous day that I won't soon forget! Thanks again to all the devoted Cirque fans!
