Doing a Broadway musical

imageHave been home in the lovely sunshine Of California for a week of frantic catching up Great to be in my own bed even if I am sharing with six dogs and a Parrot who never leave my side.  Always looking for ways to bring in more donations for the foundation so we are offering a signed box set of my body lotion and fragrance called Rare Orchid for Valentine’s Day

Trying to stay in performance shape took two dance classes last week with more to come

Gotta go GOTTA DANCE

Doing A Broadway Musical … Chicago Closing Performance

Here on closing night with Susan Lindstrom who was the winning bidder for tickets to Gotta Dance that will benefit the William Holden Wildlife Foundation. She is a delightful person and we had a lovely time together after the show, and I thank her for her support to the foundation and our work.

Our last show was a joyful performance filled with the exuberance of the final performance that may see the return of some of the cast, but perhaps not all of us,  but it was surely a celebration of all we have been through together and wishing each other all the best in the months to come.

Now I look forward to going home to all my furry friends.

Tomorrow is our last show in Chicago so it will be a rather frantic period of time, but I will have the great pleasure of meeting Susan Lindstrom who was the winning bid on Charity Buzz where we auctioned two tickets to Gotta Dance and some private time with me after the show, so there won’t be a blog tomorrow but I will send a photo of Susan whose generosity will help our work at the William Holden Wildlife Foundation.

By popular demand I will be continuing with the blog … thank you all for your enthusiastic responses.

Gotta go, GOTTA DANCE.

Another longtime devoted fan from Texas, Stevie, gave me the most beautiful hand mirror which she made herself out of porcelain.

We have three more shows to do and then we put the baby to bed for a while. But if you like I can carry on with the blog which has now become a habit for me, so please let me know.

Gotta go, GOTTA DANCE.

Doing A Broadway Musical … Day 57

Thursday …

Here is a photo of a long time fan of Hart to Hart and supporter that goes way back to Love Letters and the Sarah Siddons Award, who even managed to let RJ know that we were all going to be together tonight.

With only four performances left of our Chicago run, the director, composer, lyricist and writers will now go back to New York to work on many aspects of the show that they think will make it better than it already is, and we all look forward to reconvening in the fall.

Gotta go, GOTTA DANCE.

Mary Lou, my darling friend and colleague at Sears during the years we
produced the line of clothing called the Stefanie Powers Collectables, sent these beautiful flowers. Thank you, Mary Lou.

These booties were hand made by my fan Marcia’s mom, who gave Marcia a birthday present of a ticket to come see our show with friends for the second time, so they drove from Indiana. Thank you mom!

Among my fan guests were two supporters of the William Holden Wildlife Foundation, who came from Salt Lake City, as well as others from Ohio.
It was lovely to see them all and their generosity and time to the WHWF is greatly appreciated. Thank you all.

Sunday was a matinee and tomorrow is a DAY OFF.

Gotta go, GOTTA DANCE.

Doing A Broadway Musical … Day 53

Thursday …

Last night I was nursing an infection which has made its way around our cast so I opted for antibiotics … a hot toddy … and, after having done two performances early to bed – so no blog.

Today we assembled in the theatre for more additions and subtractions to the play and the music. Haven Burton was given new lyrics and complicated musical harmonics to cope with, along with added dialogue that she had to learn immediately and perform tonight. It is such a difficult task to make changes to dialogue and music once you have established a certain rhythm, but Haven performed all the changes beautifully and deserved every bit of the applause she received while taking her bow.

After the show I met with a fan club member, Jeanne, who made her first airplane flight of her life just to come see me in this show. Jeanne was petrified about flying but she managed to make the trip so she deserves some applause as well.

Tomorrow there will be more changes awaiting us so …

Gotta go, GOTTA DANCE.

Doing A Broadway Musical … Day 52

Tuesday …

We only have 2 more weeks in Chicago so it is an ideal time for all of the creative juices of the writers to have an opportunity to try out new material that will ultimately benefit the show since as of the 17th of this month we close and will not reconvene until the end of August. So today we tried some changes that may or may not stay with the show, and the rest of the week will probably contain the same exercises.

We had a wonderful audience tonight, they were enthusiastic and very vocal, and that is what counts.

Gotta go, GOTTA DANCE.
