Fun on a Friday: when pop culture worlds collide

Now that the Anthony Weiner scandal has died down, there seem to be only two topics of water cooler conversation these days:  Book of Mormon and Harry Potter.

They seem so dissimilar, don’t they?

Not to Tessa Netting, former Billy Elliot Broadway cast member, who created a Harry Potter meets Book of Mormon meets the opening of The Brady Bunch YouTube mashup that is quickly making the rounds ’round Broadway.

Enjoy it, and thanks for the fun, Tessa.

Now if only there was an Anthony Weiner meets War Horse mashup.  (For the record, I have no idea what that even means.)

Miss Abigail’s Guide opens in October! And guess who is starring?

I used to skip dinner so I could see this girl.

Forget about Marsha, and well, Cindy was just a plain whiner.

For me, it was all about Jan.

And she was in my living room twice a day, from 5-6, on channel 56.  And I loved her.

Yep, I’m talking about none other than everyone’s favorite middle daughter, Jan Brady from The Brady Bunch, also known as the fantastic actress Eve Plumb.

And I couldn’t be more thrilled to announce that Eve will be starring in Miss Abigail’s Guide to Dating, Mating & Marriage this Fall!  And it just went on sale TODAY!

Miss A will start performances at Sofia’s Downstairs Theater on October 7th and officially open on Sunday, October 24th.

Don’t know what the show’s about?  Here’s a mini-blurb:

Miss Abigail’s Guide to Dating, Mating & Marriage is the story of Miss Abigail, the most sought-after relationship expert to the stars (think Dr. Ruth meets Emily Post),  and her sexy side-kick Paco, as they travel the world teaching Miss Abigail’s outrageously funny “how-tos” on dating, mating and marriage.

Check out the website for more:  www.MissAbigailsGuide.com.

I hope you’ll join me at the theater in October to welcome Eve to the NY theater scene!  I guarantee lots of fun.

It would be worth you skipping dinner for.

Get tickets.

Speaking of announcements, keep your eyes on the blog next . . . uh . . . Tuesday, I think.  I’ve got something cookin’ that you’re really going to get a kick out of.
