On Oct 29,I went to Gypsy Box Office and bought a ticket.I told the guy in box office that would be my 6th time Gypsy.Then he told me that last night a lady saw her 77th time Gypsy. Oh, my God! She's so lucky and rich.
But I have a question. Why last week Gypsy 's grosses was so low.It was sold out on Saturday.Did Bernadette miss any performance?

77 times! That's insane even if you do have the money to see it that much.
I have a feeling I know who it is because someone from the show said that this one person had seen it like 50+ times, and that was a couple of months ago; so It's very possible that she's up to 77 by now. LOL

Man, and I thought my seeing it like 9 times was obsurd. I feel better now. I have tickets for the end of January, and probably won't be seeing it before that.

But wow, 77!? I wonder if she ever does anything else, or sees any other shows at least?

I don't even think I could enjoy it if I saw it that many times.
It kind of takes the thrill out of it.

I think I heard of that girl too? Isnt her name Krystal or Kristy? something like that? I remember I heard someone mention it at the stage door the last time I saw Gyspy. it was my 4th time seeing it amd when I told someone that they said it was nothing compared to the amount of times this other grl had seen it.

oops I should have mentioned that it was somone who works with the show and is there every night that said it. Not a fan. So that's what makes me think its true.

Either way, it's a lot. lol I would hope it wasn't a fan who said it, because that would mean they probably saw it just as many times.

There's a thread on Broadwayworld.com right now about how many times people have seen shows, and one guy said he saw Mamma Mia 100 times. I seriously cannot imagine seeing anything that much. I don't think I've even seen my favorite movie that many times.

My friend is obsessed with Rent..she goes to the show every Sunday and has seen it around 25 times. But she knows this one guy who has seen the show more than 1,000 times since it's opening in 1996(?). I agree with Christine. I don't think I'd fully enjoy the show if I saw it that many times. I know who wei is talking about, at least I know of someone who has seen the show at least 60 times a couple months ago. Not giving any names out because everyone deserves their privacy. But seriously..77 times..a little obsessed..

I would think Bernadette and the other cast members get freaked out from seeing a person that many times too! I know I would be a little frightened. Heck, I've had some of my friends call me a obsessed for seeing it for second time! (Which is going to be this Saturday!! I'm so excited anyone else gonna be there then? )

I drove 6 hours to see it last Saturday, the matinee, then bought a ticket for the evening performance -- making it time six and seven for me -- then drove 6+ hours back home.
And I felt like an obsessed nutcase, a stalker.
77 times?? Now I don't feel bad at all!! And know, at least, I'm not THAT nuts!?!

It was the first time I'd seen it since early August. And I noticed things, technical things, I'd not noticed before. You can wear it out if you see it too much. Though I do hope to see it again (in part because the last time was a bad seat, off to the side with a tall guy in front of me), I don't want to wear out the thrill and joy!!

MAMMA MIA must be a popular one to see over and over again, then, because I went one time and there was a girl at the stage door who had seen it 92 times. 92 TIMES! That would definitely take the thrill out of it for me. I've only seen GYPSY 4 times and I'm starting to get a little sick of it, to be honest. If I went to see it again, it would have to be a long time from now.

But then again, I work on kicks. Every few months I start a new kick. This past summer it was GYPSY. Then MAMMA MIA. Now it's WICKED. We'll see what's next. But none of those have I seen more than 4 times. I mean... who has that kind of money??)

(Although I am pleased to say I won the WICKED lottery the other night! Yay! So it wasn't so expensive. Except Kristin has a brand new puppy now, and so she doesn't come out after the shows. She rushes home to take care of it. *sniff* I dont know what upsets me more, that Kristin doesn't come out or that she's got a new puppy and I don't.)

Yeah, I go in (obsessive) spurts too. Beat the heck out of something sometimes. Realized I'd reached that saturation point with "Gypsy" this weekend. I need to give it a rest for awhile. See it once more, maybe in the spring.

UCFGuardgirl, is Kristin Chenowith your new best friend? since she knows Mom and all, I mean?

You guys are all so lucky to have the oppurtunity to see the show 1 or 5 or 77 times! I would love to go see Gypsy, if it weren't for the like 16 hour drive, and crossing the blue water bridge where suddenly my money is worth a whole lot less! Money doesn't come easy to us college kids... but anyways, I have only been to two broadway shows in my life. I went to NYC when I was 16 on a school trip. We saw Amedeus (which broke my heart when I realized that not all broadway shows are musicals, which I absolutely adore) and Saturday Night Fevor. I didn't get to pick the shows, if I did I would have went to Les Miz, which was playing next door to Amedeus...

But, anyways, was there a point to all this? Oh yeah, you guys are so lucky to get to see BP perform live. I don't think I would ever get sick of that. If I could afford it I would go every night! (But then again I am the type of person who watches my favourite movies again and again until I have all the lines memorized, and I'm still not sick of it. I must have seen Annie about 500 times as a child, because I used to watch it just about everyday until I went to school!)

I have seen it 12 times and I stopped because I thought people were going to think I was a stalker.

LOL
