Curtain Call

This is an emotional post for me. I am writing this as it nears 11pm on Sunday night. "Legally Blonde" w/ the Downriver Actors Guild has had its final show. Some people, I saw for the last time. Some people, I will see again. But THAT SHOW, that cast, that crew, will never be whole again. And, yea... it breaks my heart a little.

I have to say... this all happened as accident... that turned into a curiosity... that turned into an experiment... that turned into one of the most amazing experiences of my life. So... the first thanks goes to my friend Ashley Helper for dragging me to the audition workshop.

The course of working on this show has had its ups and downs, but in the end, EVERY SINGLE PERSON IN THIS CAST AND CREW BROUGHT EVERYTHING THEY HAVE TO THE PERFORMANCES. I'm so blessed to be a part of this amazingly talented group of people.

I can't even begin to thank everyone that made me feel welcome and loved, people who let me into their circle, into their lives, and let me, and everyone who was a part of this show (including the audience), experience their talent and passion. There are no words to describe everything I've experienced in this show.

I had so much more I wanted to say, but I'm so emotional that it all escapes me in this moment...
Thank you everyone, and I can't wait to see you ALL again.

  1. I am so glad you were a part of that amazing cast JT--it would not have been the same without you!!! I feel exactly as you do and for me that's saying a LOT since I have been on stage for 46 years! "Legally Blonde" was a magical experience and I'm so glad you were part of it!!!
