Because I like doing it, and even have brought work home not because I had to, but because I really wanted to finish something up. Today was great. I was a little worried because part of my job involves the Opening Night invitations of VIPs. It is complicated and there is not enough information written down about how to do it, but I figured out a system that will work for me and that I can refine on-the-go and for-the-future. What was so cool was how many people responded with excitement over seeing the show - not any show - but this show. So many people said that it was one of their favorite plays and that they couldn't wait to see the cast we had doing it. I knew I was in the "Long Day's Journey" Club, but I didn't realize how big it was! Even for the declines, there were many mentions of seeing the play later in the run. Of course, they could have just been polite, but it all felt very sincere to me. In any case, it made me happy.
I am dying to see some theatre though. Fringe feels too far away. Luckily I am going to the new Workshop West/Brad Fraser play, Kill Me Now, this weekend. I was supposed to go last weekend but I couldn't stop coughing and didn't want to be that person in the audience that everyone wishes was somewhere else. So I decided to be somewhere else that night. So I will see it this weekend and I am really looking forward to it. I have some other things on the calendar (Warhorse, Long Day's Journey Into Night, The Daisy Theatre) and on my wish list (Midsummer[a play with songs]) so I am anxious for the rest of the month to get a move on!
