Well, the show opens tomorrow! I’m nervous and excited and not sure, exactly, what to do with myself. We have to dress up a bit. Fancy.
There is honestly little else going on in my brain right now, though I’m probably not as big a bundle of nerves as the actors. They’re pretty amazing, and I think they will have it down and do an incredible job.
It’s been a year of meeting and working with some remarkable people, and through that, some growth. I tried on a new medium, couldn’t get it to fit quite right, tried on something medium-adjacent — comedic songwriting — and found it felt warm and tickly. Or should I say, warm & fuzzy.
OK, that is a joke only I would get, because one of my songs in the show is called “Warm & Fuzzy.” So it was hilarious, but really only to me. I digress. Ish.
I promise the whole show is much funnier than that.
So by next week, I will have much to report, after the audience reacts to our work for the first time. Assuming there is an audience. Let’s hope there’s an audience.
Hey, if you’re in Chicago, come see the show!
