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.
