NYCITYCLAYFAN at The Clayboard had a chance to talk with Hannah Waddingham this weekend in New York at Spamalot. Hannah sent a really nice message to all of Clay's fans and here, along with some additional comments from NYCITYCLAYFAN, is that message:
Yesterday I took my daughter with me to see Spamalot since we knew it was Hannah's last weekend (and next week David Hibbard and Jonathan Hadary leave). Anyway, we were waiting for some of my friends from work who were also attending and ran into Hannah on her way into Shubert Alley. We had met her earlier this Spring and she always stopped to talk to us. She was touched that we came to see one of her last performances and we told her she would be missed. We got to talking about her run on Broadway and her time here in New York and how much she missed Clay and his fans and the "energy" that we had as an audience.Hannah and the whole cast of Spamalot were so talented. Though we went to see Clay in the musical, we found ourselves with a bond with the whole cast. Best wishes to Hannah in her future endeavors.
She also asked me to post on whichever fan board that I post on and thank you, the fans, for voting for her for the Broadway.com award for Best Female Replacement! It really touched her that we voted for her and she was touched that we went out of our way to make sure she won. She also wanted to thank the fans for all of our suppport for her during her run in Spamalot and making her feel so welcomed and loved and she said she will miss us all and she wanted to send all her love to you, the fans, for that support.
