I love what Jim said on Kelly & Michael the other day about how the audience is the missing character in every play, even if you're sitting there like a curmudgeon.

 

That might be one of the reasons he's always so excited to see the fans lined up.  It's part of his whole theater experience.

 

And no one wants to perform in a vaccuum.  You've prepared and worked and worked to make it just right, to hit all the right notes, to get the punchlines just right or the emotions or whatever, and the whole reason is so that an audience can appreciate it, experience it.  And because it's not on film, it only exists in that form for that one moment for that particular audience.  As a musician, I can relate to that aspect.

 

I'm sure that's part of the charge he gets out of it, and part of what makes him so grateful for that audience.

I did theatre 'back in the day', and the audience absolutely makes a difference!!  You feel the energy, and it can change your performance and energize you.   I remember not always loving matinee performances because there wasn't much of a charge from the audience, and night performances were always exciting.   There is an electricity, especially when the audience is enjoying and responding, and it gives you the best feeling.  Very addictive!

OMFG guys!   He commented on my IG pic.  I am in hysterics.  

Ok, so the premise of the play, as we know, is God wants to set the record straight on certain things and because He is so omnipotent, mere humans couldn't understand or see Him, so He's coming to us

So it was a great experience. I got Jim's autograph and a selfie! Great times. Here's the Majim hug from my vantage point. And when the cast left he kissed and hugged Mayim. Super cute, so glad I

Not the greatest pic but this was the best I could do in the dark :p

Thanks.   Well tinted windows and dark outside doesn't make it easy with a camera to get a good shot.  LOL!  Still very visible though.  Thanks.

I bet Todd is really proud of him. (And yes he is very nice-looking!)

 

I also wonder: If the play is popular enough and gets enough press is there a chance they would ever be able to make a movie from it?

Okay, is there some secret to getting this video to play?  I must not have my tongue in the right place...so to speak...

 

When I click on the little picture of him that has a "play" arrow, it takes me to another page with links to various other interviews he's done.  If I click on where it says, "Click here to play", it takes me back to that page.

 

:cry:

I think it would be highly unlikely that they would make AN ACT OF GOD into a movie, although possibly it would lend itself to a PBS special (they do performances of Broadway shows all the time).  Broadway shows are seldom made into movies (lately it seems to be the other way around), and I can't remember any one-man show ever making the transition to film, especially short-run shows like AAOG. I would love to be wrong though.

Such a good interview. I love how he can talk of his acting and all that like his dreams coming true. When I watched this interview I remembered two things. One was in another interview where he said once he was poor and lonely in the city and the other thing is about how he loves talking, the last one was at the GLSN award with Todd.

I've just watched Jim's interview and I literally had to start that again 3 times because I realized I was just staring at his eyes or lips and I wasn't paying any attention on what he was saying  :wub:

 

He is handsome as always and you can really say he's having a great time doing this play in New York.

 

I'm so happy for him  :girlinlove:

Jim will be at the book launching event for Ryan O'Connell's "I'm Special:  And Other Lies We Tell Ourselves" book on June 15, 2015.   See More.

 

So I finally had time to look into this event a little more.  It's not just an appearance, Jim is actually the moderator of the launch event, the actual title is:

 

Book Launch: I'm Special: And Other Lies We Tell Ourselves by Ryan O'Connell in conversation with Jim Parsons

I love how he completely invests himself in projects he believes in, even if it occurs during the midst of a Broadway run.
