It has been difficult to put my thoughts to paper recently.
I have this overwhelming sense of urgency. I’m anxious about moving. It’s a good feeling, though a bit stressful. A little bit of anxiety keeps me on my toes and moving in a forward.
I’ve been playing more ukulele in a feeble attempt to escape to my own personal island. Thinking about the sun and the waves, strumming some sweet major chords, closing my eyes and smiling.
Aside from the pressure of moving – Love’s Labour’s Lost has been an absolute pleasure to work on. I’ve got some very defined talent in the cast, a supportive crew and production team who challenges me, and a passion for the Bard. I think my cutting is good, and I’m going to keep it in my back pocket for next time this show rolls around. Eric Strauss, our music director, is a life-saver and I couldn’t do it without him. The sound is wonderfully balanced. Elyse Norman (SM) and The Clark Council have been so supportive to the production too – I couldn’t imagine this show without their help.
The long and short of it is that a lot of people are giving this show priority – and I can’t wait for you to see the finished result.
I didn’t know you were moving? I’m hoping it’s to Minneapolis. – J
To Chicago! I foresee some MegaBus trips to MPLS…
