Follow Jessica Lea Patty Through the Bandstand Opening Night
It's the day of the show y'all! Opening Night at Bandstand on Broadway! Here we go!
Look at all the love we're getting from our broadway family! Other Broadway shows send us their congratulations for our big day! What an awesome community to be a part of!
Our dressing room looks like Christmas morning! My dressing roommates, Mary Callanan & Erica Mansfield & I are ready to go down to the stage for the gypsy robe ceremony!
My dear friend of 21 years and fellow gypsy, Erica Mansfield and I before the ceremony. Sharing the broadway stage yet again with this beauty!
The turn out for the ceremony is huge! Friend & gypsy robe recipient Katie Webber and baby Olivia come to join in this historic tradition.
As well as Hamilton gypsy robe recipient and friend Betsy Struxness.
Ten incredible talents make their Broadway debuts tonight! Congrats guys!
And the gypsy robe is awarded to Kevin Worley! He has done 8 Broadway shows in the ensemble & 2 as a principal. Congrats Kevin! Thats Laura Osnes, Beth Leavel, and Corey Cott giving Kevin some gypsy robe love.
Then the recipient must run around the circle 3 times so that everyone can touch and bless the robe for a successful run!
Kevin and I did the Chorus Line revival together on Broadway back in 2007! 10 years later we get to share the stage again!
