Tom LenkTom Lenk - ’Will You Be My Special Friend ?’ Play - Fan Report
Thursday 27 January 2005, by Webmaster
Hello, i was at the final Tom Lenk show "Will You Be My Special Friend" at the Acme Comedy Theatre in Los Angeles (though I hear he’s added a Saturday night show this week). Anyway, I noticed Jane Espenson in the back row. Cool, I thought. Also, Tom’s guest was Danny Strong so there was the Jane/"Gilmore Girls"/Strong connection. Then, before the houselights dimmed, Joss Whedon and the Denisofs (Alexis and wife Alyson Hannigan) walked in. To the "oh my God’s" of the rest of the audience. They seemed to love the show, especially Joss. Joss loves himself some Tom Lenk. It was almost more fun watching Joss watch the show than watching Tom, almost, because "Will You Be My Special Friend" is wonderfully funny, in a messy sort of way. And Tom is hysterical. The red-headed annoying SIT (Alecia Fey ? can’t find my playbill) was also a guest star.
