People who know me well also would know that I love the show Jane the Virgin.
Now, what if the universe cosmically aligned to provide a Broadway that included my favorite actor from Jane the Virgin?!?! People: this is exactly what happened! Jaime Camil, who plays Rogelio De La Vega on Jane the Virgin, was guest-starring in CHICAGO on Broadway from the beginning of June to the beginning of July. Naturally, I HAD TO SEE THIS. Not going was literally not an option.
|ALL THE YES.|
|Just a couple of Hawaiian Pochos in the big city!|
I've seen Chicago on Broadway before, so I knew the storyline, but the show was just as amazing as ever! It truly is one of my favorites!
|Looking and feeling fabulous, if we do say so ourselves!|
I follow Jaime Camil on instagram, and saw that he had posted on occasion photos with fans after his show. There were a line of people waiting to meet him and take a picture with him, so we joined the ranks! One of the theater ushers confirmed that all of the stars exit from that doorway, so even if they didn't stop for a picture, we'd be able to see them. Well, he DID come out, and was very gracious and started taking photos and signing autographs!
I was discouraged because there were so many people (many were obviously Jane the Virgin fans because they were calling him by "ROGELIO!!! ROGELIO!!!" even though his name is Jaime!) Jenn, being her assertive self, bulldozed us to the friend and asked him, "Can we take a picture with you?" He said "OF COURSE! Let me just say hello to these people first then I'll be with you." SO NICE! there were a bunch of latina grandmas that he stopped to speak spanish with and give hugs to. Then it was our turn!
|My life is now complete!|
|Okay, NOW my life is complete.|
We slept in, checked out a local diner that one of the hotel bellman recommended to us (It did NOT disappoint!), then hurried over to our bus. We did not take into account the crazy traffic, so even though we were only 10 minutes away from our bus stop, the traffic was so bad we ended up missing our bus. Thankfully, Jenn was able to list us on the next bus home (which was an hour later) and we literally reserved the last three seats. It was a busy, fun-filled trip, and we were so grateful that we were able to bond for some sisterhood time! Also, kudos to our families for allowing us to venture and hold down the fort.
