I only have a few minutes here, as charityflint
and I are heading out to enjoy a second day here in Fort Worth, but I had to make a quick post about the play last night.
In a word, Jensen is freaking AWESOME!!
I was so blown away by him I swear I forgot to breathe during most of the play. Plus the fact that he was 10 feet away from me! God, people, I just can't put into words how he looks in person. It was so SURREAL to see him right there
, you know?
When he first came out on stage and yelled "Sam!" I had to chuckle, as did most of the other SPN fans in our section. :-) Plus the fact that Kaffee doesn't like to fly, as does our dear Dean. *g*
And I swear, if I ever hear another person say that Jensen is just a pretty face, I will hit them with a baseball bat and make them see this play, somehow, because holy crap, Jensen can ACT. Not that I didn't already know this, but damn, to see it in person and how intense
he is - you'll be absolutely stunned.
Jensen had this part DOWN, let me tell you. From the serious stuff to the comedy, he was fantastic. Yeah, he flubbed a couple lines, but so did the other actors, and really, with the amount of dialogue he has, and how fast
he has to say things, it's no wonder a few words came out a little garbled.
But he looked really relaxed and it was incredibly obvious that he wanted to make every performance his best. His facial expressions during the entire play were fantastic.
Shall we take a second to SQUEE over Jensen in three
different military uniforms? [Barb falls over dead] OMG!! LOL! And where our seats were, Jensen had his back to us several times and I got to appreciate his...assets. ;-) He really does have an amazing body - nice shoulders and slim hips. They wear so many layers on SPN that it was nice to see some more form fitting clothes on Jensen.
The first half of the play was great, but the second half was amazing
, since these were the courtroom scenes. And Jensen BLEW ME AWAY. Again, I forgot how to breathe as Kaffee gets more and more intense, grilling Jessup before both of them are just yelling at each other. You could've heard a pin drop for the last hour.
And then, at the very end, as Kaffee is walking off stage to end the play, right past our seats, JENSEN SANG! My jaw just freaking dropped as he started belting out "I don't know, but I've been told..." SQUEE!!
Needless to say, the applause and yelling for Jensen when he came out to take his bow was totally loud, especially from our section. :-)
I'm SO glad I get to see this again tonight, because once was just not enough. *g* I wish all of you could have been down here to see this, because it's something I'll not soon forget and I feel very, very lucky that I got to be able to experience. It will be so strange to go home and see Jensen on TV and think "I saw you in person". God. :-)
We did the stage door thing, but a person from the theater came out and specifically told us that neither Jensen or Lou would be coming out, so that was a bit of a disappointing end to the evening. :-( And with even more fans there tonight, there's just no way Jensen will be coming out, either. Bummer.
But hey, at least I was thisclose to him and he even looked right at me at one point, and wow, to have that intense gaze focused on you, just for a split second? Yeah, I was a puddle of goo.
Charity and I need to leave a oh'dark thirty tomorrow morning, so no report on the Saturday night show until after I get back home.
