Let Me Give You The Low Down....

I was in CRAZY FOR YOU! We had an awesome, tiring, amazing 4-day run in the Opera House. I can't decide if I'm sad that it's all over --I'll have to let you know what it feels like to have my evenings free again in a few days. But right now I am definitely enjoying sitting on the back deck writing this blog and not rushing off to rehearsal. I'm sure I will miss it though, it was really fun to prepare for such a big event, and it went off with only a few hitches. The scenery and costumes were huge --a once in a lifetime kindof thing, and I am so happy to have been a part of it. I also met a large group of new people and we've got plans to get together for the next few weekends to celebrate various events --The Derby, a birthday, we'll have everyone over for a cookout sometime--so hopefully I won't lose touch with all the great people I've met and gotten to know.

There was a professional photographer who took some photos during the show, so maybe I'll have some of those pics in a few weeks. Also, there is a DVD being made, so we can let those of you who live far away borrow it if you'd like. Here are a few snapshots we were able to take backstage.

LOVE the headdresses! Sounds like it was really fun. The DVD will have to make the rounds, I guess. I sure wish we could've gotten to KY to see the show in person!

As an aside -- I'm thinking about Wicked as a halftime show for next year. One of the band kids will be painted green for the show. I'm trying to figure out how I can make a band person appear to fly. Anyway, I thought the resident Broadway fanatic would enjoy that!
