In early October, I had the opportunity to see the revival of the Broadway classic A Chorus Line while it was still in previews. I sent out a request to the theatre in early November. Last week I received this signed Playbill accompanied by a letter from the theatre thanking me for my letter and stating that the Playbill had been signed by the entire cast. I've gotten so many great successes from Broadway theatres recently, and this one of course is no exception!
As any regular visitor on my blog can probably tell by now I am a American Idol fanatic and occasionally write to my favorite contestants from various seasons of the show. In August I had read that Diana DeGarmo was returning to the Broadway show Hairspray to again play the role of Penny Pingleton. I missed the opportunity to write her when she first starred in the musical in the spring, so I was really excited that she rejoined the cast again. I sent her a letter in early September and in early November I received a color 5x7 signed and inscribed photo from her. She also signed and inscribed the index card that I had enclosed with my letter. I am really thrilled to hear back from her! In September I had the opportunity to go to a performance in which I saw both her and Haylie Duff perform. Both did such a great job! Aaron Tviet who played Link Larkin was a favorite of mine as well, so I hope to eventually send out an autograph request to him as well! :)
I was really surprised to receive a reply back in late October from actress Emmanuelle Chriqui. I had given up hope long ago of hearing back from her, as I sent the letter out to her in 2002!!! I guess it just goes to show you that you never know when you may receive old requests back. She sent me this beautiful 8x10 signed and inscribed photo as well as another black and white photo head shot that she also inscribed and signed. For those of you who may be unfamiliar with her she starred in the movies Snow Day and On The Line.

It's been a while since I have posted any new successes, but I am home this weekend from college and have received 3 autographs since starting school so I am adding them all to my blog now. Sorry I could not get them up any sooner. First, I received this inscribed and signed BW photo from Candance Cameron Bure in mid-October. She is most well know for playing DJ Tanner on Full House.
