Pressing the Flesh

Grease is doing Ottawa this week and there was a special guest in the audience for opening night – Prime Minister Stephen Harper.  What fun for all of them!    No matter what your political bent, meeting the head of a nation is (almost) always a thrill.

Originally reported on Broadway World:

Taylor Hicks, currently starring in the Broadway tour of  GREASE had a visit from Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper last night, after the opening performance at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa, ONT.
