Tonight I hop on a plane to LA for the studio recording of bare: A Pop Opera.
I am beyond excited, but very sad to be missing the last day of several performers in our cast. However, tonight I had the fortune of going on with Gideon, Robi, and Rob...who will all be leaving our cast on Saturday. I played Otto tonight and Rob and Robi were on for ensemble. It was nice to have tonight with them, I respect them all so much and value what I've learned from each of them.
It's kind of the end of an era! I cannot believe that I have already been with the cast for 5 months, but I feel so fortunate that I have had the opportunity to work with the original cast members for so long. It was an honor to come in as an added cast member.
I'll be back in on monday, taking over the "Stage left Chair of Rock" (as our stage managers affectionately call it). I have known about this for quite sometime and I'm flattered that I have recieved so many excited emails from fans about this recently! I didn't know it had been such a secret!
I am extremely excited about the work I'll be doing over the next few days. I'm sure it's all going to be a total blur! I'll be in the studio in about 15 hours...and I'm still in New York!
I cannot believe that I'll be missing 4 performaces. That's a very strange thing for me. I get nervous on mondays when we don't have to be at the theatre until 7:00. I always feel like I should be doing something...so being on another coast is going to be strange. I'll keep updates throughout the process if I have access to my computer much.
