Back In The City And The Cold

I'm right back in the thick of it. Took a little time off to visit with the fam. With my uncle being sick, I really hadn't seen much of my parents spite living in their house, so I stayed an extra week and hung around with them. Watched lots of Downtown and began my first knitting project. (Mom had to catch up on the soapy sillieness so she could chat about it to her friends. I was working on a potholder that ew rather large. It is the beginning of my knitting career. All my friends should expect silly knitted gifts from now on. ) I'm currently killing time before heading back to the open cal for the non union Mamma Mia tour. Even though they had calls last month, this one as still crazy busy. My were union/not union half life has me spoiled when it comes to this big nasty open calls. More than anything I just need to get going again. With a carrot cake muffin! In other news, I got some lovely pics from miss Caitlin Cannon. She is an excellent carpool buddy, a terrific tapper, and takes some beautiful photos. Check them out and check out her website at Here is a link to my photos. Let me know what you think.

It Just Keeps Rolling Along

Another one down. We closed Showboat last night. It was a great experience and a great first job as a swing. Like Michele told me early on, it isn't as much fun, but I was blessed to get to journey on the Cotton Blossom for just a few nights with such an amazing group of people and a great company to work for. Hopefully it is just the first of many productions to come!
My fellow swing extraordinare took this from the balcony during my stint as "the girl without a costume." I did make a lot of friends that week. :-) In other news, I was crazy and went up Thursday and auditioned for Richard's Stafford's production of Guys and Dolls for Westchester. He and his associate Jonathan were bother super sweet (as they always are) and it went well. They kept me to sing and I had blast kick ball changing my 8 bars with Ted Lundy (my favorite accompianist. He is always so cheery a nd he likes my go to songs). Hopefully it leads to a nice long contract that keeps me in NY for the heavy audition season. Thankfully, I made it out of Newark right as it was starting to snow and had plenty of time before my last journey on the old Cotton Blossom! Some clips of the fierceness I have enjoyed for the last two months. He also gives great hugs. :-)
