Hearts on Fire

        I just came back from Ojai and saw the "Hearts on Fire" and it was amazing. I waited to long to get the tickets and they were sold out but I decide to go there anyway with my friend. We drove almost 4 hours because of traffic not even expecting to get tickets. When we got there I was a little nervous but we asked one of the guys helping with parking if there was any extra tickets and he said no he was working on that earlier but instead of just leaving I made my friend come with me to ticket pick up table. The person before me  turned in a pair of tickets because part of their party wasn't coming and I was stoked so then I asked and the very nice woman at the table said if you wait over to the side we might have extra tickets. Finally before it started the very nice woman came over and said " She had two tickets left and asked if we were fans of Zach and of course I looked down sheepishly and my friend said "Yes" ..I felt like fan girl for moment which is actually true though.. Thankfully to that woman we got tickets and I'm so appreciative of her..
   The seats we got were really close, I was just happy to get in at all.. The reading was really great I've always loved Sally Fields and she started it off.  Anyways it was so amazing to see him in person I didn't get any pictures of him though.. I hope some of the fans that went to the dinner afterwards did. I did met some nice ladies from this community, ZQC and Sarmy..

Did anyone go to event too and/or get pictures?

ZQ's newest project is with Spielberg!

Since he dropped out of Harvey, Steven Spielberg’s first project under the reconstituted DreamWorks has been a subject of much speculation. Now I hear who's at the center of the director's biopic of George Gershwin, which DreamWorks acquired last fall. It’s Zachary Quinto -- Sylar in the NBC drama-fantasy Heroes, and Spock in the JJ Abrams-directed megapic Star Trek. Quinto will play the famed composer and pianist, who with brother Ira was responsible for more than a dozen Broadway shows before dying at 38. DreamWorks is even supplying accent and dialogue coaches for Quinto, and shooting could begin as soon as April. Doug Wright wrote the script, and Marc Platt and singer/pianist Michael Feinstein are producing. A DreamWorks insider says this is one of 3 projects Spielberg is looking at for his next pic. I think it is and wouldn't be surprised if there's an announcement later this week.
