The show... the journey
How do you document real live.... when you are exhausted and need sleep.
I have been numb all week long!
For the last three days I have been waking up with headaches ranging from simply awful to massively dreadful. I wake up with my shoulders pushed up against my ears! My shoulders and neck are so tense that just the thought of wiggling them in La Vie Boheme sends painful shivers

We are coming down to crunch time! The show opens with 7 rehearsals left (one of those being LONG Saturday on the 4th of July!)
The platforms are set up, the stairs in place and with each piece of the set that goes up, the show gets that much closer to completion, and ultimately ending.

The tables, DEAR GOD the tables.

You tell me.
The first time Scott cast me it was in Wait Until Dark. I played the part of Roat who was a bit of an evil psychopath who kills his partners, torments a blind woman and threatens to burn down her apartment around her.
I then was cast as Caleb in Spitfire Grill The Musical. I had a discussion about my character in during rehearsal one
What a great rehearsal last night.
Prior to everyone else getting to TAS, I stepped into the main office and David and I chatted a bit about our "Soprano issue".
We had a rockin' incredible soprano cast in the show early on but after a few rehearsals, she learned her previous show in Reno Nevada got extended. One day she was there and the next day she was gone
