Ok, it's Friday evening and it's time for me to
wander down to the Civic theatre
to see Bare For Christchurch. I arrive and blown away by the beauty
iconic building. Absolute majestic! Standing outside keeping an eye
MaryD's good mate Jo, I see a lot of faces that are familiar, but
your not sure
where you know them from. I see Jo coming.
We make our way to the
bar and see Andrew Young former CEO of Starship.
A quick hello and were off to go take our seats. I have no idea what
as I'm not real sure what it's about. As I read the program which
title to each segment I see one that says Woman Pissing and my first
thought was "I bet that's the one Lucy is doing." The lights dim and
the show begins.
The story centers around the lives of all the characters who in some
way are all
connected. Now the first couple of actors, I have no idea who they
are, but they
were great. Then Michael Hurst is on and plays a American guy who
has a great
idea for a TV show. Like Dancing with the Stars, but naked.
brilliant! So It's half way through the show and the next one of
It's about a woman who the police catch peeing in
the street. The lights go up and here is Lucy with her butt facing
the audience squatting. I started laughing before a single
dialogue left her mouth. She went on to explain how she was just
giving back to
mother earth what she had taken for example vegetables and meat pie?
nearly gave back to mother earth I was laughing so hard. All in all
and actors were absolutely wonderful and I haven't laughed that hard
in ages. So
it was time to make our way to the after show party and we see Rob
Viva Bianca from Spartacus. Again a quick hello and we make our way
The place is full of New Zealand celebs. It was like a Xena reunion.
Michael Hurst runs by gives me hug and says "Good to see you again
Janine, glad you could make it" and is off to talk to the guys from
Sparty. Standing chatting with
Andrew Young and of course Lucy pops up to say hello. A hug, kiss on
the cheek a photo and autograph & she's off again.
I turn around and standing to my right is Liam McIntyre the new Spartacus
with Viva & Dan who Played one of the brothers. I turn back around
and Lucy's Popped back. ( ok she does this quite frequently during
the evening ). She asks me if I had met Liam yet and to go and say
hello. So Off I went with Jo to talk to Liam who is an real sweet
guy and looks like a younger Andy and is really excited about the
Lucy pops over and we get a few shots of her,
Liam, Viva & Dan. Lucy stops long enough for a chat and then is off
again LOL. People are starting to leave and I'm thinking of going
when Lucy jumps on stage and starts singing
Sunshine with her friend Jason ( Stalker guy from Europe vids)
playing the piano. ok I think I'm going to hand around for a little
while longer as you never know what else she's going to do. I decide
to go up stairs for some fresh air and run into Keisha Castle-
Hughes from Whale Rider another quick hello & ciggie with her and
I'm off back downstairs to see what I have missed. Party is winding
down people, are leaving,
So Jo & I are finishing our drinks ready to
leave, when of course Lucy skips by us ( I mean skips ) to were her
friend Jason is, Then she's comes over and says she and stalker guy
are going home, so another kiss and hug goodbye, love you, see you
soon and she's off. Well I must say it was a great night of Theatre,
Music, Celebrities & friends. It will be a night I won't forget.
