I can't wait to read people's thoughts about the play, and Lei in particular.

Aww love the pics. It looks as though it all went well.
I'm trying to find blog reviews online but no luck. The reaction seems positive on twitter though

Edit: Heres an honest review on Leighton's performance with only a slight negative...

Quote:

I think O'Dowd has the tougher of the two roles, and I had a discussion with my friends at intermission about what is really going on with Lenny, but his second act is VERY strong, especially the scene with Leighton Meester in the barn....
....Going into the theater I have to confess I was most excited to see Miss Blair Waldorf live and in person! She's very beautiful, and as I mentioned, her big scene played nicely. Her appearances in act one felt a little rushed, but maybe it was just first preview jitters and she'll settle in the part. She could up the flirting factor, almost to an embarrassing/desperate level.
Little more from the same person...

I mentioned Leighton's performance...I thought she was good, though she rushed her lines in act one. She could take her time to flirt and throw herself at the men a little more. Her work in act two was better and the scene with Lenny in the barn was very good.


So her last scene was very good apparently so it seems her confidence grew as the show went on. Previews are good, gives chance for the actors to get use to the stage. This is going to be an amazing experience for her as an actress.

Nerves were to be expected but as you say Rachel, she'll get into it and the nerves will settle. Broadway is such an amazing opportunity for any actor/actress.

Thanks Rachel. I'm glad they were honest. It's previews so there's still time to do little adjustments here and there. I'm sure she was nervous because there was an audience but she'll get used to it.

I'd imagine the standing ovation the cast received from the audience will give her a boost of confidence too.
