Nice!! I actually saw him earlier this month (live in Boston and took the mrs down to NYC for a weekend) got 3rd row seats!. I agree he was better than expected. He's not a dancer but didn't look completely lost being surrounded by the professional dancers. Very solid,
We didn't go backstage though, that's awesome! We did meet him after the show, took pictures, he signed the playbill and a card I had of him from his OSU days. Another guy had Eddies Tennessee Titans Jersey that he signed. Really nice, good guy, and appreciative and genuine. He was understandably exhausted so didn't hang around to long, pretty much got in a cab right after.
But also, def recommend if you happen to be able.
