There’s a fun interview with me on Michelle Pillow’s Pillow Talk Blog here:</a


Yesterday was busy, trying to finish the changeover. The regular dresser was back in the track, and I was there to smooth the transition. The new cast members had their Broadway debuts last night, which was always fun. The understudy was on for the actor who was sick, so I got to see him in the role, and I thought he was terrific. This guy will take over the role in a few weeks; his interpretation is very different from the previous actors in the role, and he fills it with a passion and a vitality that then turns to pain and anger and despair – he’s going to be wonderful in the role on an ongoing basis. He’s such a passionate force of nature offstage and to see him translate that into the work is wonderful. If he’s this astonishing at nineteen, I can only imagine what he’ll be like by the time he’s thirty and fully grown into himself.

It was wonderful to see the show. I’d listened to it every night working it, but to see it from the front was an entirely different experience. It’s beautiful. I hadn’t realized the BEAUTY of the piece, the way the space is used to its full theatricality, and the detail work. It was a great experience. I can see why people connect so strongly to the show and the performers. I am truly proud to be associated with it.

Unfortunately, it meant no page proofs were done. I have to do them today.

But . . .I have to go in to the city this afternoon to take care of a few things, and then I’m supervising the show tonight, because the supervisor is out sick. I’m taking the page proofs with me.

What I really need is sleep, but that won’t happen until some time next week.

  1. One word: AMBIEN

    Then again, I suspect you work instead of sleep. In that case, never mind! Hang in there!

    Hope you manage to get some time for those proofs…

  3. The interview was interesting and I liked your answer to the paranormal creature! I hope you’re able to rest soon and also able to work on those page proofs. I also hope your day goes well!
