New York, baby! I just got back yesterday from a trip to New York City with OKTC, which was an AMAZING experience. I saw 10 shows (8 Broadway, 2 Off-Broadway), tramped through the city, and took over 500 photos! There was a film being shot in Times Square while we were there too, called New Year’s Eve, so the Time Square ball was up too! Weird for March, but still pretty awesome!
The shows I saw were:
Thursday March 10 – How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying (starring Daniel Radcliffe)
Friday March 11 – Catch Me If You Can (starring Norbert Leo Butz and Aaron Tveit)
Saturday March 12 (matinee) – Treasure Island
Saturday March 12 (evening) – Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark (which was… interesting, to say the least)
Sunday March 13 (matinee) – Avenue Q
Sunday March 13 (evening) – American Idiot (my favourite show of the trip!! Last performance for Stark Sands and Davey Havok)
Monday March 14 – The Book of Mormon
Tuesday March 15 – The Addams Family (loved it! Starring Bebe Neuwirth)
Wednesday March 16 (matinee) – Memphis
Wednesday March 16 (evening) – Priscilla Queen of the Desert
The trip was really cool because there was no set itinerary; everyone on the trip could do whatever they wanted to do (as long as they were not hanging around in the hotel!) I’m so thankful for the opportunity and I can’t wait to go back to NYC again!
Since I haven’t blogged for quite awhile, here’s a quick update:
No Traveler Returns (Out of Sight Productions) opened in February and went very well. Here is an article about the show that was in the Londoner, and you can read reviews here and here (from Theatre in London and the UWO Gazette, respectively). There was even a note posted about it on Maureen Jennings‘ website!
OKTC’s Jolly Roger and the Pirate Queen opens Friday, March 25 at the Spriet Family Theatre in Covent Garden Market. I’m a bit nervous, as it’s been over a week since our last rehearsal, but I know the kids will pull it together!
Rehearsals are in full swing for OKTC’s The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. These kids have been working their butts off! We’ve got the entire show blocked already… and we don’t go up until late May. At least we’ve got lots of time to polish and perfect!
Lots of other stuff in the works at the moment… writing mostly, and gearing up for Fringe 2011! I can’t wait!
