Martin Short - Fame Becomes Me

Last night after work I ran over to the Opening of Martin Short's new Broadway play - Fame Becomes Me. I have to say it was probably one the best opening I have ever witnessed. Every Iconic comedian was there - Chevy Chase, Tom Hanks, Billy Crystal, Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn, and Jerry Seinfeld to name a few.

Chevy Chase and family

James Marsden stars in 10th and Wolf which opens today in theaters. The story is set in my hometown of Philadelphia. I love the tagline "The intersection where family, honor and betrayal collide." It's about Marine Sgt. Tommy Santoro (James Marsden) thinks he's left behind his family's ties to organized crime. Returning home to South Philly, he meets up with his brother, Vincent (Brad Renfro), and cousin Joey (Giovanni Ribisi), who both become mob thugs. Soon Tommy finds himself on the wrong side of the law. Bernadette Peters; Bette Midler in backgroundElizabeth Stanley soon to be seen in the Company at Ethel Barrymore Theatre starting in Nov. Chris Elliott Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson and Chevy Chase (again) This is a good view of the "Red Carpet" where you can see the celebs go down one side, and their guests and non-celebs (people who don't sell magazines) or people don't want to be bothered doing the press line (Lauren Bacall, Martin Scorsee, Katie Couric) go down the otherside and right into the theater's door. Andrea Martin from My Big Fat Greek Wedding, currently in How to Eat Fried Worms (2006) Brian Stokes Mitchell & Allyson Tucker; Christine EbersoleJerry Seinfeld wondering where his car is parked? His wife looking like she just finished sucking on a lemmon. Matthew Morrison is to the right with the hat on.I almost lost my life getting this photo. To get a shot like this you have to get right in front of the celeb and walk backwards. Well I did that with the other photogs, but what I didn't expect was there would be a mounted cop on the sidewalk - BOOM - I hit the horse with full force, shocking the horse, the cop and making Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn crack up. But it was worth my aching back to get this shot.Martin Short exits the show with a smile on his new face. Paul Schaeffer from Letterman is behind him. I got this great shot of my two favorite people at the After Party held at the Tavern on the Green. Celebs can be so nice when there's only a few people around. SJP thanked us for waiting for them and mentioned that she hope that we had eaten before we took on the task of waiting. Have you ever met nicer and sexier people than these two? After I shot this picture, Matthew walked SJP to a waiting car, kissed her goodnight and sent her off to home without him. He ran back into the TOG and about 15 minutes later came out with James Marsden, a group of guys and 2 tall blondes. With great merriment they all got into cabs and waiting cars and in a caravan made a left onto CPW. Billy Crystal walked outside with Chevy Chase as the latter had a smoke. Chevy posed for one photo with a guy who started quoting from "National Lampoon's Vacation"Eugene Levy has got the American Pie franchise sewn up; he's working on the 7th sequel, is that really necessary? Bernadette Peters tells me that she doesn't plan to go back to Broadway anytime soon, but will do a few more concerts next year. She was sweet, and after I took this shot she insisted I take a photo with her, which I did.Martin Short calls it a night and takes his souvenier glass with him...
