I want to thank all of you for kind words and wonderful comments. It is greatly appreciated. I just got back from an amazing week in New York City getting my mojo revved and theatre juices flowing. We went to a taping of the Letterman Show and even made it onscreen from the third row. Neil Patrick Harris was one of the guests and tonight's host for the Antoinette Perry Awards (the Tonys) for achievement in the theatre and my vote is cast for the incredibly moving and creative musical, Once. Congratulations on 11 Tony nominations. If you saw the movie and loved it you will even love the musical more. I did. Both leads were phenomenal and the direction was innovative and precise. All the cast members play an instrument and the movement with the songs was creative and evocative. If you get to Broadway don't miss it and if it tours to your city, be sure to catch a performance. I walked out a different person. I always love that when it happens!
Steve Kazee plays the Guy and he's got it all. Looks and talent. Break a leg tonight, Steve.
UPDATE: 8 Tonys including Best Musical and Best Actor in a Musical. Congratulations, Steve and I loved your acceptance speech.

I'm not going to say good-bye, just fare thee well and I wish all of you happiness and may all your dreams come true. Our fledgling theatre company just received our non-profit number and we are getting ready for our first show this September. I leave for New York City on Sunday for a week of tourism and theatre going. Now all I need is someone to share all this with. Wish me luck or break a leg. Like I said I may post from time to time, but for the most part will not be posting on a regular basis. Email me if you'd like to keep in touch.
