Today, Peggy tells us how she met Neil Patrick Harris, the How I met your Mother actor, a while ago.
Well my twin sister and I were born and raised in Minnesota. In the mid to late 90's RENT the musical hit the scene and as teenagers, we fell in love with it.
If you could not afford tickets, you were allowed to RUSH for seats. The theater would not sell tickets in the first two rows, these were set aside for rushers. If you chose to rush, you had to wait in line for tickets. One person was allowed to buy two tickets so if you were rushing with someone you could take turns waiting in line. My sister and I would rush for days on end, sleeping outside of theaters across the United States. Sometimes we would have to sleep outside 2 or 3 nights just to see the show once. By the time we were 20 years old we had both seen the show 40+ times and decided that we would never see it again.
In this picture we are outside of a theater in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Neil Patrick Harris is from New Mexico and even though he had left the touring cast he came back for these shows in his hometown. As soon as we caught wind of this we packed our bags, jumped in a beat up car and drove 20 hours straight. We were the first in line!"
Thanks a lot Peggy
