I'll be there on Wed. Should be a great show.
How long does the taping take?

Barbara said...

They take at the minimum an hour to tape. Then you have the option to stick around and ask George questions and take photos with him etc.

Trudy said...

Thanks - do you know how long will it likely be between arrival and the taping? We have to be there for 5:30pm.
It's going to be fun!

Barbara said...

Between Arrival and taping? Maybe 45 minutes at the most.

Barbara said...

I see it's a very large audience. I love the noise they make! There are some minor changes to the lineup for the Wednesday and Thursday shows.

Trudy said...

It looked like a rock concert last night.

We're getting there early - and I hear the Sedin's will be on tonight, so that is great!

Trudy said...

We went to the taping last night - George is so funny! We were seated close to the entrance so we could see everyone arrive, and George hung out there a bit too.

I was really impressed with James Moore and his ability to "spar" (live) with George.
Loved that the "Sedinery" was on too! It was a great time - the crowd really made it an experience.

Trudy if you would like to write up a few paragraphs about your experience there feel free to write us
If you have pictures you would like to include that would be great!

Trudy said...
