For fans of Broadway music, it would be like a dream if every scenario could play out like a scene from a musical.
It’s a dream that grandmother Maureen St. Pierre has often mentioned to her kids, saying that life can always be vastly improved with a melody.
For her 85th birthday, the musical theater actress got the surprise of her dreams when her children arranged a flash mob. Her daughter, Danielle Digby, spent months planning the event and told her mom to meet for a photo before her birthday dinner. While at the first location, actors broke out in song, surprising St. Pierre by performing two numbers from “Hello, Dolly!” Moments later, the teary-eyed grandmother got up and joined the performance herself.
