Dear Scott...

I was mad at you. It was a dirty, rotten trick you played on me yesterday morning. You KNEW it was my Christmas. You KNEW I was so excited I could hardly sit still. And still you chose to do this to me:

I'm so sorry to send this to you. You can try calling but I suspect they'll be gone.

Your Mom is going to be super disappointed.

Subject: Performance Cancellation 4/28/09

Due to a gas leak at the Capitol Theater discovered after last night's performance, the Tuesday (4/28/09) and Wednesday (4/29/09) performances of Wicked will be cancelled. Ticket holders should call EDITED immediately for refunds or re-ticketing options. This performance will not be rescheduled and only 100 tickets were held for reserve. Tickets will be sold at face value to the first 100 callers.

Our apologies,

When you walked to my office space, you KNEW I wouldn't see the grin on your face because my head was in my hands.

To your credit (and this might have saved your life) you put me out of my misery quickly by answering YOUR phone with "This is Scott, and I just got you GOOD." My heart didn't stop pounding for a long time.

Your life is saved, and now that we've seen the play, all is forgiven. Thank you for offering to purchase tickets for me so I could get the discounted rate. Thank you for staying online with me ALL. MORNING. LONG. on Halloween Day trying to get tickets. Thank you for going to ArtTix to pick up tickets when we were unable to make the online thing work. Thank you for being excited for us. Thank you for remembering that yesterday was Christmas (even if you did pull a rotten trick). Thank you for asking me first thing this morning how it was. Thank you for not ruining some of the plot twists, especially the ending. Thank you for not rolling your eyes when I sing along with "Popular."

You are a cherished friend, and now I will forever connect you with this awesome play!

PS. Thank you for letting the rest of us laugh with you even though we didn't work for the joke. And I'm sorry for saying you are dead inside.
