The Story:

Just in time for Halloween, Director Alexander Greenfield and Fabrefaction Theatre Company bring Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s chilling, suspenseful, heart-pounding masterpiece of murderous barber-ism and culinary crime to the stage. “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street” recounts the infamous tale of an unjustly exiled barber who returns to 19th century London to seek revenge against the society that wronged him. Originally focusing his malevolence on the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife, his thirst for blood soon expands to include his unfortunate customers. A tale of retribution and in essence, obsession, Sweeney Todd serves up a delicious portion of gruesome humor, sinister spite, and suspicious meat pies. Presented as an intimate and highly theatrical ghost story, Sweeney Todd is sure to entertain die-hard fans and newcomers alike with its visceral, intense drama and uncompromisingly dark humor.

An Hour and a Half on Forever…

The above phrase is actually a description of my afternoon this past Saturday.  I went into the studio around noon and did not emerge until 4:30.  For those of you who don’t like to do math that’s four 1/2 hours of singing, listening, and re-singing again. (I was allowed the occasional water break, of course.)  One of the most intense, taxing, and yet rewarding afternoons in September thus far!

It was amazing to work alongside my engineer, Harry O’Brien, and composer/writer, Dr. Lance Barry.  Both of them were not only tirelessly critical (constructive of course), but endlessly encouraging.  We began with the song, “Forever,” and brought the recording of that one to a close roughly around 1:30.  Then my “challenge” of the afternoon began… “More than a Dollar $.”

I’m still not quite sure why this song was so difficult to bring to completion, but I spent nearly thirty minutes on one section trying to get the timing “just right.”  As Dr. Barry referred to it later, it was my “#1 major conquest of the day!”  It was quickly followed by “conquest #2.” Chalk those two up to irritating song rhythms that nearly had me sitting in the middle of the recording room pouting.  The good news is that once that particular section was behind me, the rest of the recording was a breeze.

3:00PM came, and I sat down on the couch fully prepared to gather my things and depart, when behold, Dr. Barry whips out page of lyrics and grins mischievously.

“Surprise!”- Dr. Barry

Oh yes, that’s right. He and Harry had prepared a third song for me to face off with and subsequently defeat.  (Which I am pleased to say, I did.) Thus an enjoyable afternoon came to a close, and I was released to do what every good Georgia Peach should do on a Labor Day Weekend…go to a UGA game.

Once again, I thank Dr. Barry and Harry for their unceasing support on Saturday. They truly energized me when I had nearly nothing left.  -Well the banana helped too… 😉 I hope to have some audio for everyone soon, but until then I hope you enjoy the pics I’ve uploaded! (Though blurry.)  Much love to you all.

Studio Time and Sweeney!

Happy September everyone!

This Saturday I’m going to be going into the recording studio again to work on two new songs! This was a phenomenal opportunity and collaboration with Dr. Lance Barry, whom I had  recently worked with on the song “Renegade.”

<If you haven’t heard it yet, take a listen below!>

I once again look forward to the process, which never ceases to surprise me.  So far every time I’ve gone into the studio it has been like a completely different experience. (None any less adventurous than the previous.) I’m sure this time will not be a disappointment.  My plan is to capture some “moments” throughout the day to share with you later next week, so stay tuned!

In other news, for those of you who didn’t know, I have been working on a graphic novel over the past year and I am pleased to say we draw ever closer to its publication.  My artist and I have been working diligently on editing dialogue and tweaking the frames (well, she’s been tweaking…and I’ve been clapping my hands joyfully at her phenomenal talent.)  We’re hoping to soon be able to give everyone a brief glance into the world of RE:medy!

For my own personal book project: Everdavia, I promise I am working on it, but after being critiqued (by several trusted sources) there are some major areas which need to be addressed and refurbished before going to the printers. Nevertheless, I persevere on!

ANNOUNCEMENT! Tickets for Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street at Fabrefaction went on sale TODAY! So go ahead and pre-purchase or contact me with how many you would like to order. Hope to see all of you there!

Sweeney Todd!

Exciting news!

I have officially booked the role of “Johanna” for Fabrefaction’s production of Sweeney Todd!

October 25 – November 13. Just in time for Halloween, Director Alex Greenfield brings Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s chilling, suspenseful, heart-pounding masterpiece of murderous barber-ism and culinary crime to the stage: Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Presented as an intimate and highly theatrical ghost story, Sweeney Todd is sure to entertain die-hard fans and newcomers alike with its visceral, intense drama and uncompromisingly dark humor.

I got to pick up my libretto from the theatre yesterday as well as drop off my contract! (How stinkin’ cool is that!?) One of my old Berry College classmates currently works at Fabrefaction in the costume shop so we had the chance to do a little bit of catching up- which was wonderful!

I’ll begin rehearsals for Sweeney on September 11 and hope to see many of your wonderful faces when the show opens! I’ll be sending out ticket information as soon as I have it!
