Taking some advice

8 November, 2009
Rat Fink

Know what? I think I’m going to take Suz’s advice and take the day off. I shouldn’t. But I’m going to. I still haven’t watched Mad Men from last Sunday.

To all those involved with Bye Bye Birdie, from cast to crew to orchestra (yay!) to my fellow directors — a huge thank-you! It was great. Despite all the illnesses and other roadblocks too numerous to mention, the kids did it again. A fine show.

I awoke this morning (late — almost 7:15!) to find the customary post-show sickness setting in. I’ll just live on DayQuil/NyQuil for the next few days, and all will be well. Now to get this thesis done so I can go back to being Grammie…

But first: coffee and Mad Men and a holiday. Life is good (and quiet). Well done, cast. Next year: 42nd St.

To all those who read this wonderful blog – I went to the show last night. It was one of her best! Despite all the sickness going around, the directors, cast and crew were spot on. It was a FABULOUS show! Sam – you made me cry when you sang, “Talk to Me”. Beautiful voice.

42nd St.?!! YAY!!!!!

Gurl you better hurry up & get caught up on MM because I **think** the season finale is tonight!! How did that many shows go by so quickly? And what the heck is up with Sal? When they gonna bring him back?? LOL I’m SOOOOO thrilled for you & proud of how you & the gang put on such a great production this year! Wish I could have popped in for one of your shows ala your birthday party (LOL), but just wasn’t in the cards right now. Have a couple shots of DaQuil/NyQuil & get to feeling better soon!… Read more »

Just got back from dropping BV off @ the airport – headed to Vegas for work for 2 weeks. Was really strange-I’m the one usually getting dropped off @ the airport! I’m headed there for a 3.5 day weekend Thurs afternoon. Gonna see Cirque du Soleil: Beatles Love :-)

So 42nd Street, eh? Fun show! I’m guessing you’ll start your cuts in the book later in the week after the music arrives, eh? LOL :-)

LuvU!!

Great show last night! I was there and loved every second of it. The leads did well, and everyone on stage was alive at all times. The energy on stage was so high that you could tell these kids loved doing the show… or they’re just all really amazing actors and can fake it. Either way, great job to everyone involved!

Congrats to you and to everyone involved on a successful show. All of you worked very hard and overcame numerous obstacles. I was rooting for you — from Florida. I’m glad you took a day off. I assume you’ll be watching “Mad Men” tonight. Isn’t it the final episode? Take care of yourself.
