Next to November!

My amazing family

Opening night has come and gone and now we enter into November! Wait. When did this happen?  I can’t believe how much activity a single week can hold.  It’s been a unique time of celebration for all that we’ve accomplished in this show, but the work doesn’t end here.  Each show continues to grow and breathe  as each of us make new discoveries.

It was our first 8-show week and man was I feeling it Monday… (Who knew emoting could sap so much energy and be so physically demanding.)  I am fortunate though, in that I was able to take the majority of the day to just rest and eat.  Monday evening however, the entire cast had the opportunity to sing at an event at the Selig’s house. Cary and I sang “Superboy and the Invisible Girl,” Bob sang “I’ve Been,” Catherine sang “I Miss the Mountains,” and the whole cast (including understudies) sang “Finale: Light.”  It was the first time we had ALL performed together, and I just have to ask… can’t the Goodman family have a bunch of random neighbors that come and visit at the end of the show??? 🙂 It was certainly powerful.

In other news, my next project( Little Women: the Musical at Fabrefaction) has begun rehearsals and I am really excited about working with such a great group of performers. I will be playing the role of Beth – and it will be a nice change of pace and temperament from Natalie! I can finally take a break from the teen angst for a while.  It will also be the first time I am performing a show during the holiday season.

Next to Normal has been blessed to get such positive feedback from the media/press. You can see some of the reviews below:

As per usual I will close with a slideshow of the people who have come to celebrate this show with me.  Much love to all of you and hope to still see many more of your faces in the days to come!

SHOUT OUT to Margo Moskowitz perhaps my most dedicated reader- and temporary roommate. This blog was written from the comfort of her apartment.

Without her I don’t think I would survive these long weeks! Love you dearly.

Until next week,
