Well, that's quite true. i mean i want to talk to him so much but then think again, what should i talk about that make him remember me is still a big mystery to me so better just ask for autograph.

Easy:

Hi Alan, I really enjoyed the show tonight. The play is terrific & I really loved your acting. I hope, I'll get the chance to see it again. Would you be so kind to sign my picture/DVD/ticket/poster... Thanks. Could I also have a photo taken with you? Thank you so much! I really had a great time tonight & hope, that the play will be a hit on Broadway! Good night!

That is, what I said at the stage door in Dublin (last year) to him! :D

@raucik83 ;) I think its more complicated than that xD Because every one of us would kind of get a little bit nervous to meet him xD But Yeah I agree just try to be natural and not extremely hysteric !!

Outstanding answer Kraucik. I may copy that down and practice..lol. But I also agree with popo, I'll probably just stand there and stutter. I figure by the time Wednesday's matinee rolls around, I'll have seen him enough times to actually speak. As that's my birthday, what a pleasant present THAT would be.

Since the hotel I am staying at is directly connected to the Golden theater, I will be (politely and discretely) stalking the stage door for M,T,and 2xW shows (I have tickets for Mon nite and Weds nite) - 4 times to get the nerve up to speak.......

Happy Birthday waimea! Hope you meet him.
Alan is really nice, but pretty shy at the stage door. I was lucky enough to meeting him last year. And he is stunning live on stage!!!

Thanks K. If I'm going to get that close to him, I WILL meet him = politely, of course. Might help that I'm an old lady. I going to be 62 so maybe he'll take pity on me.....lol.

BTW, what I finally ended up saying was "hellomrrickmaniflewallthewayfromhawa­iit­ose­eyo­urp­lay­you­wer­ewo­nde­rfu­lit­was­won­der­ful­ire­all­ylo­vey­our­wor­k..­...­.&q­uot­;. That's when I ran out of breath and Alan looked up from signing my playbill, gave me the sweetest smile and said, in that inimatable voice of his "Thaank yoouu." Happy ending.

@waimea--great story!

blush
Well, if I got up the nerve to ask for an autograph I would hand him my playbill without saying anything. I would probably blush a lot. Then I would just stand there and enjoy the few seconds I had to be in his presence, and when he's done I would say "thank you" and walk away. I would probably have to tell myself to breath also.

@Waimea - You lucky (w)itch you! LOL! Great birthday present! And I am so jealous of that smile. One sincere smile from Alan is like the best expensive present from others.....geez, did I mention I am jealous?!
(I think I would have naughtly dreams all night about that smile.....lucky lucky lucky you! LOL)

When I met him the first time (I went to see Seminar twice) I said " I understand you were a bit under the weather. How are you feeling?" (This was in November 2011 when he was just getting over a bout of pneumonia). He said " I WAS" and then he said something else which, unfortunately, I couldn't quite understand because I was trying to talk to him and photograph him at the same time (awkward). He gave me a nice little smile as he was walking away (sigh). The second time was the last performance of Seminar (4/1/12). I told him " It was nice having you here in New York for the last 6 months. Come back again sometime" (or something to that effect - I'm not quite sure exactly what the hell I said - He tends to have that effect on me (-; ). He said " Thank you", smiled again, and went on his merry way.
