@clayaiken watching you at Ogunquit Playhouse right now- such a good show !!
Intermission – Awesome!!!!! – The man is perfection!!! OMG!!!
Place is packed tonight. We’re at intermission. Clay is in perfect voice. Land of our own freaking awesome!
Hi guys! We’re in beautiful Maine. Clay was magnificent…
I will share a silly conversation I had with the guard at the porta potty station this afternoon at the venue. I commented that I thought it was a great idea to have them set up outdooors because there were hardly any lines. The nice young guard said they were set up for only the full house shows and all ‘Josephs absolutely Sell out. They credited Clay and his Claynation. They are thrilled he’s here and doing fantastic in the box office and happy we are here for him. He was sweet and sincere.. It’s a win for him. I can’t tell you how many locals asked if we were here to see Clay. They are all sweet and happy he’s here and of course that we’ve (all of us and more to come) been around here too.
Seeing double,, it’s getting late… Show was more than what I expected…

Saw Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat last night at the Ogunquit Playhouse with Christy Cole-Burrows. Great show and Clay Aiken made an excellent Joseph!

Just got home from Maine late last night and want to go right back again. It’s beautiful there. We saw the show Saturday night and Sunday night. There was no show on Monday. We had such an incredible time. I laughed so much and cried and was just grinning from ear to ear. The show is fantastic. I have always loved Spamalot but this is so much better. Clay was amazing! We had great center seats so I saw all his facial expressions and just about died inside when he was being kicked and pushed and thrown into a hole. I don’t know what’s in the hole but it’s not that big. He’s on the brothers’ uplifted arms laying on their hands with his arms raised straight up in the air and they just jettison him into the hole feet first. I kept thinking he could be hurt because they just threw him in a flash and he was gone. Later they pull him up by his arms and he’s just fine. The second night I held my breath when they did it and still felt uneasy about his safety. Hopefully there are people in that hole who catch him.
The entire cast was first rate. We enjoyed everyone in the show. Our special favorites after Clay were Elvis, the brothers and the narrator. I could not believe that I was laughing through a bible story but it was done so well it seemed everyone enjoyed it a lot and had a great time.
During intermission we went to get some souveniers and the lady and man selling them asked us where we came from. We said Pennsylvania and the lady asked us directly if we came because of Clay. We smiled and said yes we did. She then told us that they knew of Clay but didn’t realize he had such a huge fan base that will travel to see him. She said the theater has never been this full and that Clay has the best fans. The man was very impressed how many people have flown in to see the show because of Clay. He said that never happened there before. Most people vacation there and come to see whatever is playing at the time. They were amazed at all the fans who travelled from across the country and Canada just to see Clay. They said he’s the biggest draw that they ever had and were very pleased at the attendance. I don’t have the exact figures but it looked 99.9% full for both nights.
So…this post is made up of many little nuggets. Each one adds a bit more excitement to the story of Clay and Joseph’s Dreamcoat! As always, a HUGE thank you to everyone for sharing all the information. It is really kind to those who cannot see the production in person.
On Thursday, there will be two more shows. Hopefully, we will get more information and we can share again!
