1800 eyes later
The show was a success. Rather, it wasn't just a success - it reached monumental levels within the success realm. 2 evening shows and 1 matinee show later 900 people witnessed the story of Gypsy Rose Lee - the famed stripper of Burlesque in the 20's & 30's.
What have I learned? First off, this cast was amazing. Not in the way you think though. This cast was like a mini-family. Not the way you might think - not regarding talent and performance. This group, this mini-family seemed to merge into one tightly knit unit over the past 2+ months. From knowing one person in the cast to 2 people to 3 to 25+. Absolutely incredible. Thank you all for your patience, hard work, comfort, laughs, smiles, suggestions, etc. I don't know how else to thank you all - so I'll just say it again - Domo arigato gozaimashita.
What's next? Nooooooooooo clue. Okay I lied - next is this... I am going to find a way into the entertainment field as a means to day to day income. Meaning? I want to work in the entertainment field. I love the results, I love the opportunities, I love the people. All around goodness - of course there will be difficulties and hardships. If I have to choose I think I'd take that over the plateau that I've been cruising on now for quite sometime.
On another note briefly - Mare in Venezuela has been going through some STRANGE day to day activities. For what's it's worth, please try to realize how lucky we are, how fortunate we are to have the lifestyle and how great it is to have the freedom so many long for. My thoughts are with you Mare and I hope that the civil unrest subsides soon so that you and your fellow countrymen can focus on the good things in life again.
It's late so I'll go with a big ol. ZZZZZZZZZZ for ya...<- meaning -> out
