I have been waiting for this moment. I wanted to speed up time to get to this weekend. This will be the first (and final) weekend that our entire cast performs together.
Due to scheduling conflicts, I’ve been sharing my roles with Nick. He was there the first two weeks, I was there the second two weeks, and now we’ll both be performing this week. I wish I could have been there on opening night to see the whole performance, but now even better, I get to live the show with everyone. We’ve enjoyed great audiences throughout the run of this show, and even though this is our last weekend, I still get a little nervous before going on stage. But, as with many actors, I love to use that “nervousness” and channel it into adrenaline. And all this waiting has me feeling like I could lift a car while I cook myself dinner. I just need to get on stage and share that wonderful stage with my cast mates. The show has evolved over the past month, and it almost feels like a whole new play!
I hope you enjoy the show, because if the audience enjoys it, I enjoy it 5 times more.
I am READY!
Well… you better be! Watch this classic novel live on stage.
P.S. The music is great, especially the singing. (Whoops…I hope I didn’t give away too much information!)
