Somehow, I have a day "off". Which of course means I simply am not at rehearsal right now. When you're putting up a show, there's no such thing as "off". I got hand percussion at Guitar Center, checked in on music equipment rentals, ran lines, had a notes session with my co-wroter and director, practiced guitar, sent a publicity email to a writer for a possible story...oh, and teacher/parents meeting, kid pickup and drop off and general human stuff too!
We're about 2 1/2 weeks out from opening.
Today we moved into our temp space to rehearse. And got the whole band together. And had the joy of watching Alexis Krause discover her inner rock star! She and Sasha were throwing it DOWN in their duet - Hidden.
Brad Ellis is a genius, working stuff out, teaching, inspiring, and I get to learn and listen and absorb the way he treats people (and, honestly, ME) and his understanding of the root of the music and what a song needs to really fly! AND his wealth of knowledge and experience in the musical theatre and recording world is just...well, we're so fortunate to have him along on this trip.. And what a trip it is.
So. Here we are a week and a half into rehearsals and I've posted nothing! NOTHING! Why, faithful reader, why you ask?
We've assembled an unbelievably talented and dedicated group of people (far more talented than moi) who are SLAYING IT in the "room where it happens"! As I update the site and the press release goes out, you'll get more info - but let's just say; Sasha Sloan, Alexis Krause (who came in on a moment's notice and saved us- thank you!), Harrison White (who is our spiritual animal and has been with the show since conception - bless him), Niles Rivers, Trevon Davis, Gildart Jackson, James Patrick Stuart, William Watterson, Braxton Molinaro and Julia Harriman are amazingly talented folk. I'm honored to share the stage with them. And we are having a blast! I don't know when I've had as much fun in rehearsal - and still kicked butt...
Oh, yeah. That's why I haven't been posting - I'm playing Bobby.
So. A bit busy.
More updates soon!
