Bobby Spencer’s Favorite Halloween Memory

October 31st, 2008

Happy Halloween! BroadwayWorld.com asked many Broadway stars, ‘What’s Your Favorite Halloween Memory?’ Here’s Bobby Spencer’s favorite:

My all-time favorite memory of Halloween was living in York, PA… I was in the 10th or 11th grade and dressed-up in my dad’s farmer clothing, stuffed it with pillows, put on a scary halloween mask, sat on the front porch and waited for Trick-or-Treaters. I sat there motionless. As the kids approached I could hear them saying: “Is he real? Is that a person? No, it’s just fake. Touch it. No you touch it!” To which, at some point, some brave kid would reach for me and I’d come to life! They would scream and jump and end up laughing. And then I’d lift my mask and give them Halloween candy. It was great fun.

  1. Great Halloween story, Bobby. Ever since we met, I keep telling you that you and I should go out as the number 10….you guess who’d be the “1″ and who the “0″?? (Actually, I tried to do that with my tall, thin friend Bob Blumenthal back in sixth grade, but we had to do too much explaining at every house…)

    Hoping Priscilla and I can get down to DC to see you in “Next to Normal”. You’ll be a great Dan.
