I saw Side Show in previews (review coming Monday, November 17, when the show opens) and took advantage of the opportunity to meet the last major cast member of Desperately Seeking Susan who I had yet to meet: Robert Joy. Joy plays the original daddy/conservator in Side Show and was, of course, Madonna's punker boyfriend in DSS.
Waited afterward at the theater's incredibly awkward stage door area (actors find themselves walking down a long hall with patrons after the action ends) and Robert was, well, a joy—very nice. He signs with his right hand, but holds the Sharpie in his fist as he does it. He happily posed for a picture (I was bummed he'd just put on his hat).
Joy recently turned 63.
