On Saturday August 27, 2011, BroadwayWorld.com's CEO/Editor-in-Chief Robert Diamond, in the midst of Hurricane Irene, married actress Jennifer Hallie Rosen after a 17 month engagement. The two were introduced by a friend of Rosen's, who wasn't able to make the wedding, as a result of the weather and warnings throughout all the boroughs. The BroadwayWorld.com News Desk stayed feverish all weekend while the couple said "I Do", as news was coming fast about theatre cancellations, schedule changes and travel advisories in addition to all things that were happening in other parts of the country and the world, not affected by the Northeast's local weather.
The wedding took place at The Yale Club on Vanderbilt Avenue in New York City, across from a deserted Grand Central Station and the couple and both sets of parents, James and Robin Rosen and Steve and Marcia Diamond were taking phone calls, emails and texts right up to the last minute that diminished attendance by 25-30 people. In spite of everything, we all know that 'the show must go on' and the wedding did indeed go on in a spectacular and memorable fashion...without a hitch.
The couple will be honeymooning in Hawaii and are awaiting their flight, which was delayed due to, what else, weather. Congratulations Rob and Jennifer Diamond. We will see you back at the desk when you return.
