What an absolutely amazing opening weekend. I am so proud of my cast mates, our director, musical director, stage manager, designers, musicians….every single person that has been involved with Under A Rainbow Flag since the first staged reading. Thank you all so much for the hard work that you put into the show to make this opening weekend such a success.
Our performance on opening night was by no means perfect. I know that I missed a couple dance steps among other slight hiccups (that only the people who have been with the show would notice) throughout the night, but, and I kid you not, they laughed they cried. We were all having a very fun time and the energy was fantastic. Everything you could hope for in an opening night. Overall I was pleased with my performance but I am also continuing to look for and make new discoveries with my character. Paul Gibbs is an interesting man.
This morning when I found out that we were Jeff Recommended I was so excited that I couldn’t wait to get to the matinee performance. The Recommendation means that 7 judges saw the show opening night and enough of them liked enough things about our show so that now the remaining 20ish other judges will come see the show. Now this does not mean we are Jeff Nominated, we won’t find that out for a few weeks, but I will certainly be posting about that if it happens.
Tomorrow night, we are performing a promotional segment of 2 songs at Sidetrack during Musical Monday. We will be going onstage at 10:30, right in the middle of busy time…peeps got connections I guess. Then hanging out, drinking and singing show tunes. Nice.
