I had a few people from the cast of Les Mis tell me who they think I should pick. But everyone had different opinions and ideas on how to pick the winner. So I finally went with the random number generator and contacted the winner. (It was Lacey Daily) Augh!
The rehearsal process has been downright exhausting AND exhilarating. I haven't been getting to bed before 1 a.m. for a few weeks now. But I wouldn't trade it for the world. I.LOVE.PERFORMING. It is in my blood. But it's not the actual "being on stage and singing and dancing" that I love the very most. It is getting to know incredible people! You do realize that theatre people are crazy, right? They are the best! I get to spend hours and hours with "my kind of people". We are a unique breed, there is no question about it. I feel so alive and happy when I am with these people. I think it has something to do with sharing incredible music with each other. I truly believe music is its own language. A language that far surpasses this mortal realm. When you harmonize and blend and belt and articulate and everything that comes with a show like this...you communicate spirit to spirit. You share something that is so much bigger than you are. It is transporting.
Here are a few photos from the wonderful madness of Les Mis:
Tech Week--Finally getting into the space and using sets and props.
Crazy people whom I love
Dress like your double day. (The shows at the Hale are double cast. They do so many shows each week that they divide it into two casts.) We totally won.
Hope to see you at the show!
