Closing was ridiculously amazing! The crowd was intensely amazing and showed the cast and the show so much love, and it was clear that the fans of the show were there in full force to support the show and the cast.

Each of the ladies got major love during their entrances during '9 to 5' and you could just feel the joy and yet bittersweet sadness with each loud cheer or huge applause.

Marc and Kathy also got major love when they entered, as well. Marc played up "Here For You", even playing with Megan's skirt at one point. I kept glancing back at some of the ensemble members, and you could see tons of them with tissues in hand during various parts of the show, which was so heartbreaking.

Antics were ridiculous and amazing, the highlights:
-Stephanie stuck her head in between Megan's boobs during the pot scene and kept poking them. The whole pot scene in general was ridiculously amazing.
-Allison pulled out a tape measure during 'One of The Boys' to measure the last gentleman at the urinal.
-During 'Finale/9 to 5 (Reprise)' Allison and Andy kissed and Andy picked up Allison and pulled her away as she was finishing her "Where are they now'-esque thing.

Something cool that a few fans did was put post-it's on the posters out front with various messages on them like "SUN LIKE THE SUN" and "9 TO 5 = love" amongst others.

I shed a lot of tears and just soaked up the show, because I'm not exactly sure if the tour will make it's way near me, but nothing will beat the amazing Broadway company.

As someone pointed out, stage door was a HUGE HUGE clusterfuck. Nothing was organized, and you had to sneak in and out of the corner near the Broadway merchandise store to get people to sign. I met so many people, including Joe Mantello (the director of 9 to 5 and my female green baby, Wicked) and Andy Blankenbuehler (the choreographer, who is apparently now doing 'Bring It On: The Musical').

I'm going to miss this show so much because it truly brought me so much joy on some dark days, and now with it gone, the sun shines a little less bright. Sad
