ok, so i dunno if i told y'all this, but i got the chance to see derrick as fiyero a couple months ago in hartford. after the show (dec 10), i waited @ the SD, but only jenna and emily (my two girls) came out... well, that i saw. my dad saw derrick but didn't tell me. i went to the SD a second time to see jenna again, to meet david (my choir director plays piano on a CD w/ him), and to meet Stephanie J Block, but, again, i did not see derrick come out.
however, this past weekend, i had a stroke of luck. after winning the Dirty Rotten Scoundrels lotto and seeing the show in box seats, my sister and i went to a party across from the gershwin. we were going to rush wicked, just for fun, not expecting to win or anything. however, third to last, they call my sister's name. AGAIN. that's 3 for 3 for broadway lottos. so we got to see wicked FRONT ROW. it was amazing, derrick was even more amazing so close and stuff. after the show, and after talking to christy candler about being in the front row (she saw us @ the curtain call and waved to us and recognized us @ the SD), derrick came out. he signed my playbill and we talked about hartford.
Me: I saw you when the tour was in Hartford, but I didn't get a chance to meet you! I went to the stage door, but neither time I saw you come out!
Derrick: Well, I came out!
Me: But I didn't see you! But it's ok, because I'm talking to you now!
Derrick: Aww. Yeah, thanks.
Me: Would you mind if we get a photo together? Finally?
Derrick: Haha, sure! -we pose-
Me: You know, you were great in hartford... and tonight!
Derrick: Ha ha thanks. But I was not good tonight... No, i'm just teasing you!
Me: ha ha aww thanks derrick. bye!
so he was teasing me for being all flustered around him. :-P aww he was so sweet, i love him and i'm so glad i got to meet him. picture as soon as i get it onto the computer

another update, hehe!
Derrick says that his final date in the tour December 31st. He begins on Broadway on January 10th, and is contracted there for nine months, after which he's not sure; he'll keep us updated. He doesn't know who's taking over on the tour, nothing is decided yet, apparently.

DERRICK IS GOING BACK TO BROADWAY!
Huzzah, huzzah, what wonderful news! Derrick is returning to the Big Apple to claim the role that is rightfully his: Fiyero on Broadway. He has been a member of the "Wicked" team since workshops in San Franciso, and has worked his way up through the ranks of the ensemble, to swing, to tour lead, and now full circle to Broadway lead! I am so incredibly happy and proud of him... this is a wonderful moment for Derrick and his career.
Now... What should we do to tell him how much we love him? Anyone want to make banners or icons or something? :] I feel like celebrating, lol.
He starts performing on January 10th. Is anyone already planning to go? I'll be in town in April for a choir trip, and hopefully I'll get a chance to stop by and visit. AH. I am so excited. *bounces about like Galinda*

Q&A with Derrick... posted!
Thank you to everyone who participated in the recent online Q&A with Derrick Wiliams (tour cast Fiyero). He was happy to answer the questions, and his replies are now up on his website at http://derrickwilliams.2ya.com/

Q&A with Derrick!
Hey everyone. I asked Derrick recently if there was anything he'd like to see up on the site, and he said he wasn't sure exactly, but that he'd be perfectly willing to answer people's questions about himself, the show, and the tour experience if I wanted to do the organizing. Which I do. So here we are!
You can ask Derrick anything you want here, but be reasonable as far as appropriateness and specify what you want to know. I'll try to moderate and clear up the wording of a question if need be, and I'll judge what questions will go through to Derrick. If there's a problem I'll let you know why your question won't be answered and we can talk it through so everyone will be happy (I hope!).
Ask away, and I'll post his answers on the website! :][Edit:]
I will close the questions on October 24th, just so that I can send them to Derrick all at once. Thanks!

I just joined so I could post this... :D
I waited with some friends in the cancellation line in L.A. for 8 hours on Saturday and got tickets for the show. I saw it once on July 13th, but Derrick was out so I'm glad I got to see him this time. Anyway I wrote a little review of just him so I thought I'd share it from the post in my journal:Derrick Williams (Fiyero): Derrick is the regular Fiyero and I honestly don't understand why some people don't like him. Granted, he's no Norbert Leo Butz, but there's no doubt that he's talented. He made me laugh when his part was supposed to make me laugh, and the tender moments were just that as well. "As Long As You're Mine" was pure sex on the stage. After the first verse, someone started whistling at him and Stephanie really loud. Gretchen and I cracked up. But yes,I loved him. And he was so sweet after the show, but I'll get to that...( A rather crappy picture... but it's still a picture!Collapse )
Anyway - enjoy!

one whole year!
hi everybody. i just wanted to poke my head in and see how everyone's doing. i think we can get more members than this, guys... talk to your friends, remind people who you know have seen it to join. and if someone posts somewhere saying they saw it in L.A. and liked it, tag the community link at them and see if they'll join. it's not too much work, i promise.
also, i wanted to say that july 7th was my first anniversary of seeing "wicked"... and seeing Derrick perform. :] what a crazy year it's been because of all that! good times.
feel free to post comments, questions, pictures, tidbits of information, articles, newspaper reviews, etc pretaining to the tour or Derrick. that's what this community is for, isn't it? :]
p.s. have you guys seen "bewitched" yet, with carole shelley and kristin chenoweth (and will ferrell and nicole kidman) ? in the grocery store scene, nicole kidman has a messenger bag that TOTALLY looks like derrick's. the pink one. with the tan stripe down the middle of the strap. i was like "derrick has a girly bag?" XP. just wondering if anyone else noticed. :] Current Mood: busy

backstage at the wicked tour, june 4, 2005
so before the show, mom and i went in the stage door to leave a message for derrick, saying that we'd be at the stage door so he could come get us. or whatnot. we weren't really sure how it worked, so after the show, we go in the stage door again and ask the guy at the desk.
me: i'm here to see derrick williams?
guy at desk: ...uh...is he in the show?
guy at desk: okay. hold on. *calls his dressing room, confirms it* ...okay, go through that door and to the left, down the stairs. you'll see signs.
me: kay.( ...through the door...Collapse )
i love my life.

just a little bit of a tour-junkie newsflash for ya
...been checking with people lately who have seen the tour in Chicago and they say Jenna Leigh Green has been on for Stephanie J. Block for the last two weeks at least. they've been liking her well enough, but people are beginning to wonder where Stephanie is. i checked with Derrick yesterday, and he says that Stephanie's not been feeling too hot, so she's been off and on lately. they expect her back soon.
i'm seeing it again on june 4th...is anyone else?
