In an attempt to make this interesting, I’m going to try to write on all show nights before and after. We’ll see how that goes.
So yeah, its opening night, i’m not that nervous, though I think my hair is in danger of having looked better last night than tonight. I’m really looking forward to saturday, when I might have some free time to catch up on some stuff that I have just not even bothered to think about at all. Working from 8am-11pm is a lil’ bit rough! Is it weird to say that I’m looking forward to being able to stay late at work these coming monday-wednesdays?
I’m sortof getting to the point where I have no idea what is interesting to talk about anymore. I lost my debit card last night, which was annoying (and debatably, it was stolen from the dressing room…maybe. I’m not sure, but no charges, so whatever). Did I mention that was annoying? But it’s all taken care of now.
Soooooo, I don’t really get nervous. I feel good about the music, lines, choreography, and all that. The music+band are all at tempos that make me happy, so I’m not dancing in slo-mo, so that’s that. I mean, hey. I hope people like the show, but there are hooks for us all to enjoy – Aretha, bruce, helllooo! Even I who, at first, was like, “omg why aren’t they just singing let’s get it on, what a lame-o song booo” – totally got it once I saw it live. I figure – as long as folks get that its like, Rob’s life took over all his favorite music and its now singing to him about what is literally his life (and not someone’s imagined life…pop music getting crazy personal) — they’ll like, totally love it and think it is clever, right?
That above description is pretty much exactly how I have explained the show to friends. Who will hopefully be coming to see the show in the next few weeks!
yeah, that means you.
