Question: My friends and I are huge Keri Russell fans and we will definitely check out her new play with super-hottie Jeremy Piven ("Ask Ausiello" 12/1). Any tips on how we can get backstage like you did? Love your column. — Ginger

Ausiello: Well, only VIPs are allowed to go backstage. Your best bet would be to wait for her outside the stage door after the show with all the other stalkers/autograph seekers/obsessive journalists. Now, don't go telling her you know me. That's how trouble starts.
