I'm overwhelmed and honored by the positive feedback we've gotten from audience members since Previews and Opening Night.
I can't wait for our next performance!
Love this quote, as I feel very much the same way about playing Alison in the show:
"She was just simple and she was trying to get by on a daily basis. She's not sentimental about her pain. I had to have the same kind of attitude." - Lupita Nyong'o on playing Patsey in 12 Years a Slave
Previews have been spectacular! I'm enjoying working with this ridiculously talented team, and I'm loving how I get to know Alison (the role I play) better through each show!
Now getting ready for the official opening night on Thursday. Can't wait!

"My thing is, I like playing guys who have a really interesting internal monologue." - Lennie James
Opening night is on Wednesday! I'm so fired-up for this!
"He told me, 'Don't you ever give up!' and I thank Kiefer every day for that advice."
- Robert Knepper on when Kiefer Sutherland told him not to quit acting
This week was full of awesome rehearsals! It's so fun to see a show come together as you put more time into it. I can't believe opening night is only a week and a half away, too!
"I guess I'm drawn to... I think, even when I read serious scripts, the moments that I connect to are the little glimpses of humor, because, you know, I think every script, no matter how serious it is, has bits of humor in it." - Anna Kendrick
Tim is recovering well (he had knee surgery), so very good news! He's even gotten to the point where he doesn't need me to help him move his legs. He'll be feeling better than normal in no time!
Rehearsals have been a blast, and they're getting much more interesting, too. When you have more time to develop a character, it's fascinating what behaviors and nuances come up. Can't wait for today's session, and I can't wait for the show dates!
"I expressed myself through hyperactivity and disruption. I wanted to play rather than study."
