We were returned to the audience last night after our 10 day hiatus and it was a fabulous show. The emotional energy in the space was the best and other than a few issues with mics, it was another awesome show. So pleased and proud. A friend of mine, who has seen almost 50 shows this season, was there and she related the following on FB:
"I just had the best experience I've had all season at the theatre. And since I've seen nearly 50 shows, that's saying something. I laughed a tonne, I wept for the pain of childhood. And I was blown away by the incredible performances - on stage and off. Congrats, Kristen Finlay and the rest of the 'Bee' participants - you are all T-A-L-E-N-T-E-D!!"
She's also someone who wouldn't just say that to be nice, so I was very touched by her post.
For my really good friends, I really do not want to hear you say to me next week or the week after that, "Oh I wanted to make it, but I missed it." Even thought I am not onstage myself, I am so very proud of this, that I will be a touch disappointed if you don't try harder.
Anyhow, tonight I must stay home. I am glad that I went last night and saw it again with an audience, but I wasn't feeling well then and it has gotten worse today. It's that bone-aching exhaustion thing that tells me I really need time off, and since I want to be up for Closing Night, I figure I better rest now.
