What to expect when you're not expecting it

Posted by Katie Johnston Chase September 17, 2007 04:58 PM

The good thing about leaving the house is, you never know what's going to happen when you're out there. My husband and I went to see Campbell Scott in "The Atheist" last Wednesday night at the Boston Center for the Arts, and who happened to be sitting in the row in front of us but Andy Garcia.


Campbell Scott was great, but I was expecting to see him. The bigger thrill was seeing a real-live celebrity (who looked much older and more disheveled than this, by the way) casually sitting in the audience of a Boston theater.

The next night we went to see "Wicked," which blew us away. No celebrity sightings, but who knew I could ever have sympathy for those terrifying flying monkeys?
