The cast and crew of ONCE UPON A ROM COM:
THE Bill Pullman STORY - a play focusing on Bill Pullman's attempts at finding true love with the help of his fairy godfather, Jeff Goldblum - have been trying for months to snag the attention of these celebrities and get them to attend a performance. After handfuls of emails, Facebook postings, and Twitter updates, the cast and crew hit Pullman paydirt! After conversing back and forth with GT Executive Producer Dan Abbate, Bill Pullman sent flowers and a personalized good luck card for the September 26th performance.
And the fun didn't stop there! On October 1st, Bill Pullman was interviewed by Neil Conan on NPR and began the interview with mention of the Chicago production, the flowers, as well as the thank you video he received from the cast in return. With all the attention the production has received from Mr. Pullman, we can only wonder what's in store for us next. Jeff Goldblum? We'll be waiting for you.
