The Rush of Opening Night


Well, Opening Night was…amazing. It was truly, truly amazing. I can’t describe how incredible it felt to have an audience watching our show, to see them reacting to it. And it was sold out!

Standing in the booth with the other writers and our director, it was crazy to think about how far we had gone in a year. Four of us have been together since Writing 1; we’ve picked up a few others along the way, and somehow we created this thing that has life.

Watching one of the scenes, I leaned over to the woman who wrote it and marveled at how strange it was that we’d talked about the concept back in Writing 4 and there it was on stage. It was incredibly surreal.

I’m just happy that we have three more shows, though I know these weeks will fly by. It will be sad when it is all over, but I suppose that’s the way these things go.

Meanwhile, if you are not in Chicago, but want to see the show, apparently you can stream it! Tickets are $6. And if you’re interested, I wrote the first two songs in the show. If you are in Chicago, come check it out! Audience members raved!

OK, those audience members were my parents, but still, they have pretty good taste.
