Tonight Nine opened. It was a fabulous night. I was so pleased with the show and the reception the fabulous audience gave it. We were Sold Out (at least on paper - there were a couple of empty seats in the house so I guess we had a few no-shows). I laughed and I cried and it was lovely. The audience treated us to a standing ovation which is always so gratifying and a wonderful surprise. After the show was the traditional Opening Night Reception and it was great fun talking to my Walterdale friends and the cast and crew. I realized that I know so many lovely, lovely people and I feel blessed. I will not be back to the theatre until Friday night for archive photos so it will feel weird tomorrow night to know they are all onstage and I am not even in the building. They know their stuff and they do it all wonderfully, but I will miss not being there. I came home to kudos on FB from friends and strangers. A perfect evening.
