Tonight is our second opening night for Prelude to a Kiss. I can’t wait to see what the actors bring us tonight…they have entranced me each night so far. I also look forward each night to what I call the “wander” scene…the two actors meander from the bar to her apartment through a wonderland of […]
Needed to start my Thursday morning with a little alliteration…it is that kind of day. Thursdays aren’t Monday, with Monday’s attendant beginning of the long week blues. Tuesday is a chance to catch up with what didn’t get finished on Monday. Wednesday is hump day and Friday is…well, Friday. Thursday is just that day that […]
After I posted yesterday about our incredibly delicious thin crust pizza orgy on Sunday, a couple of you asked about the recipe. Ummm…well, this time, we used store-bought pizza dough, the kind that comes in a squishy ball in a plastic bag in the dairy section of the grocery store. We normally make our own, […]
After a satisfying opening night Friday, followed by one too many cosmos at the local watering hole, I slept in on Saturday morning…slept until 8, didn’t get out of bed for a long time after that. Ahhhh… After another performance Saturday night that had me grinning like a fool in the balcony as I watched, […]
Final dress went well last night, with just enough “crisis” to ensure that opening night will be brilliant! I am so pleased with my actors…a combination of seasoned actors and newcomers. They are awesome. Plus, I hopefully found someone to run sound for me on closing night, one of the last little details that has […]
Final dress rehearsal tonight for Prelude to a Kiss…it is always thrilling to see a show come together. And I have a GREAT ensemble cast…they have been fun to work with and I will miss them in a couple of weeks. Here’s hoping that my intimate little audience set-up has all the seats full for […]
What do you do when you are well known for having a smiley face and cheery demeanor and your smiley face and cheery demeanor get up and go walkabout? Don’t feel like me without my smiley face. But don’t feel up to pretending today. Maybe tomorrow.
I am watching a close and beloved relative come to terms with the end of his driving days. At age 95, this is the last of his lifelong pleasures being taken away from him by the aging process. My heart aches for him and I completely understand why he can’t let go, but sometimes facts […]
I haven’t had time to blog lately, as all my mental and physical reserves are being expended for the benefit of Prelude to a Kiss. I’m wearing so many hats, I remind myself of Bartholomew…director, set designer, furniture mover, publicist, program creator, psychologist…all of this while juggling two jobs and a med change. Needless to […]
