Jenna Fischer Blogs About Seeing Obamas on Date
Jenna Fischer got an unexpected surprise when she went to see Joe Turner's Come and Gone on Broadway last Saturday: Barack and Michelle Obama.
The Office actress -- who is in NYC this summer shooting the indie film A Little Help -- writes on her MySpace page that she and her boyfriend "had horrible seats, but we didn't care because we got to see a play with the President!"
"Security around the theater was intense," she says, noting that they had to walk through a metal detector, get patted down and walk past a canine unit. "They blocked off the street around 7:30 p.m. People with tickets to the show had to wait down the block until after the President had arrived to the theater."
After the play ended, "the President and First Lady made a quick exit," Fischer says. "I'm not sure what we'll do this weekend, but I can't imagine it can top seeing a play with the President."
