A day off

Well, unfortunately Aretha Franklin didn’t make it to the matinĂ©e…we were disappointed but still had a great audience. Rick Elice, Roger Rees, Marshall Brickman, were present before the show. And that always delights my heart. They have finished the casting of the 3rd Company of Jersey Boys…cast tba…how exciting..this company takes over the San Fran companies spot and then goes to Chicago in the fall..Des McAnuff came on Friday to give us notes on shows he had observed this past week. He couldn’t have been happier and said he was shocked when the end of both acts came…and he has watched this show in many incarnations, over and over. SO that was a great testament to our stage mgrs, dance captain, and us as a group. I think when you love what you’re doing, and respect the material, it’s easy and a privilege to maintain its integrity.

I also got to finally meet Kathryn Hanson and her dad from Atlanta..they’ve been fans of the show and this was the first time they got to see it, and Beverly brought her daughter and her husband on Sunday…I got beautiful lilies from Dorian, and saw a lot of other fans ..Thank you so much..have a great week…off to two auditions today on my day off…yee ha!

    Hi Jennifer,

    Good luck with the auditions. Anything you can mention? Too bad about not getting to meet Aretha, maybe next time.
    Both Diana & Peter are over their current bugs and I hope there are no more for a while. We are going to the circus on April 3rd during the kids break and need everyone well. Peter loves the clown Bello with Ringling Brothers. If he isn’t dancing around & singing to JB’s, or the Beatles…he is pretending to be a clown acting with Bello.

    Say hello to everyone for us.

    Talk to you soon.
    Take care,
