Daniel Robinson has watched his fiancé, Josh Daniel Green, dance as a flying monkey in Wicked on Broadway 10 times since he got the part a year ago.
And at Wicked's recent Christmas Day performance, Robinson put on a monkey suit for the first time — to surprise Green with a proposal in front of his castmates.
As the cast gathered for a postshow group photo, Robinson sidled in next to Green, totally incognito with his monkey mask on.
Robinson then took an unsuspecting Green by the arm to really get the ball rolling.
Like a true flying monkey warrior, Robinson ripped off his mask, to Green's delight, and delivered an A+ proposal speech.
Robinson flew in Green's family from Minnesota to watch the show and the joyous celebration afterward.
"I originally had the idea of proposing to him at curtain call a year ago when he made his Broadway debut," Robinson told BuzzFeed News. "Then a few months later I contacted the 'Wonderful Management of Wicked' and they graciously made the appropriate arrangements to make the magic happen."
"What was going through my mind honestly was, 'just keep talking.' If I stopped I would probably cry, which would make him cry, and then the company would cry. The show would go over the three-hour mark, the union would get fined, Josh would get fired, and we would be homeless! But seriously, I thought that if I just look at him and speak it would be OK."
