I came home on Friday after a long, but very constructive day refining bits and pieces and going deeper into my new number that we roughly blocked just prior to Thanksgiving and will perform tomorrow. Then all the usual stuff … I came home, did laundry, packed a bag getting ready for my departure on Sunday morning. Then took a shower, washed my hair which is a major production, and as I was studying I fell asleep and woke up at 3am … the lights were on, the television was on, but clearly I was not going to write my blog. So today two for one!!! Almost as good the Black Friday sales.
And then Saturday we were called earlier than our usual time so many people arrived accompanied by their various pieces of luggage which the producers have offered to transport on their truck. Unfortunately, the building that houses the rehearsal’s hall of the New 42nd Street Studios has a rigid policy that their doors do not open until 9am – not 8:59 – but at precisely 9am. So there was a crowd of us on the sidewalks with suitcases having our morning coffee and gossip on the sidewalk awaiting the doors to open.
Our run-through had an invited audience of family and friends – they were wonderfully responsive so at the end we felt tired but good. All of us anxious to move on to Chicago and our next challenge.
Gotta go, GOTTA DANCE.
