Breathing Again

By happy accident, ended up directing tonight and widening the pull of the swirling black vortex. It's like breathing again. I'm about to go into hyperdrive:

  • Birdie goes up not this weekend but next

  • English Made Simple starts rehearsals Wednesday of tech for Birdie

  • Then I have a week off, where I'm going to Steubie-U for with Jules to clear the brain and reconnect (and hopefully pitch musical theatre)

  • Then I'm back for a week only doing English

  • But the following week, on Wednesday, I hold auditions for Wallace's Will after which I run to Boston for another English rehearsal

  • Then I'm into rehearsing two days a week for WW, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, with two more Wednesdays full of going into Boston after WW to rehearse English

  • Then it's performance week for English while still rehearsing WW

  • Then it's four more weeks of WW, judging on the Thurs., May 15th, performance on Sun., May 18th

  • And right into auditions that Tuesday, May 20th (and Wed., May 21st, and first read through Thurs., May 22nd) for Romeo and Juliet.

    And I wouldn't have it any other way. YES.

    Mood: Fwah
    Music: None - although my brain is trying to tell the rest of me that my fingers are cold and I should do something about that
    Thought: This directing tonight, getting AJ for English (only need one more guy, Lord! Amen!), acting last night - which was a blast (I directed in class, too, which was fun but not as...well, as the acting). I have acting thoughts. I'm not sure I want to publically blog them - because the subject is so raw for me that after I act I feel - naked, exposed, one big nerve, in need of a soothing word or affirmation or something - it's delicate for me and I need to talk it out with someone, I think. Anywho - but yes, so good to be back and drawing people into my swirling black vortex. Je susire.

    Once more into the vortex, dear friends! Somehow, I never experienced you directing while I was at Steubie with you. Well, except for Living Chess. Other than that, no. That might be an experience worth having some day. Anyway, best of luck with the vortex!
