Nel frattempo, video dell'ultimo curtain call per HTS. Troppo adorabile
Qualcuno si è preso la briga di trascrivere un po' le cose che ha detto. Metto sotto spoiler che è lungo.
Darren: Good God! Uh, so, I was told yesterday that I should say a couple of words after the show, so... Frankly, I'm speechless. It's been--It's been such a whirlwind, this whole ride for me, it's been, uh, crazy. So I just wanted to say a couple of "Thank yous" before I go, since this is my last show. Um, thank you to, obviously, the wonderful producers who believed in me to let me do this and be a part of this wonderful project. To our esteemed director, Mr. Rob Ashford, thank you for believing in me as well.
Darren: To our genius in the pit, Mr. David Chase as well.
Darren: And of course, to this wonderful group of people onstage and behind stage, the "Brotherhood" of the World Wide Wicket family, this is not only my last show, but the wonderful Cameron Adams and Christopher Hanke.
Audience: *Cheers and applauds*
Darren: It has been, uh, short but sweet but now, I think it's time that I, uh, I think it's about time because--This firm's been pretty good to me, and I think it's time that I went back to my--I resigned, and I took the blame for what I did, and I went back to doing what I did before I came here.
Beau Bridges: What did you do?
Darren: Well, sir, I was on Glee!
Audience: *Laughs and applauds*
Darren: That wasn't the point of that! Only because I'm a sucker for musical jokes, Dave [Chase], give me that again!
Audience member: I LOVE YOU DARREN!!
Darren: *Laughs* Anyway, here it is. Just pretend this happened! Because I, like, planned this. . . *Repeats more cheerfully* Well, sir, I was on Glee! *Waits for a musical cue then waves hand when it doesn't come * The best laid plans of mice and men. . . .
Darren: Anyway, I wanna get out of here, so thank you so much. You know, life--I always say life is only as good as those you get to share it with, and it has been an absolute pleasure sharing it with these wonderful individuals up here, and with all of you.
Darren: I wanna make this quick, I want to get out of here, so please let me finish. So when I--like, ten years ago when I was growing up in musical theatre, I did a musical called "Do I Hear a Waltz," and there's a wonderful line at the end of that show where, uh, the female character says, "Thank you so much for something between ridiculous and sublime," and it's been beautiful sharing it with all of you and with my beautiful family *voice cracks* who is here and who's been here almost every night.
Darren: Thank you from the bottom of my heart! And we will see you next time on Broadway!
E da ultimo questa foto. L'abbiamo vista tutti Time Square con il cartellone. Ma la metto con la certezza che ce lo rivedremo su uno di quei cartelloni abbastanza presto.
