Anonymous said: Focusing on Gillian: I bet she will be crying herself tonight after such a long run (especially knowing that it was extended because it was sold out so fast mainly because of her name). She just looks in awe at the end of her performance, just so happy that people loved it. She shows no arrogance - just shy emotions. It's sweet and lovely. And what's great about tonight is Mark and the boys were spotted bringing her flowers into the theater before tonights performance.
Just bless her. Bless her for doing what it takes to make her dreams come true and doing it so damn well. I’m so sad it’s coming to an end but I sincerely hope that being Blanche was everything she imagined it to be and I hope it’s not the last time she gets to do it. I hope it goes to NY (even if it’s off Broadway, which would actually probably be better?) and I hope it does just as well there as it did in London.
Let’s cry about it some more.
