rehearsal all day, but fun, and tim and family come tomorrow

Well, I just came home to eat really quickly before going back to show tonight. We were called all day basically do the entire show with mics sans costumes except for Colin who was put in for Bob Gaudio, Graham Fenton put on for Joey, Jonathon Hadary as Bob Crewe and Donnie Kehr as Tommy, DeVito…they all did a great job..And it was cool cuz Rick Elice sat in on it and our Asst. Director West…

I came home and decorated my apt for Tim’s arrival tomorrow with his parents and sister Dorothy, His parents are in their early 80′s and never have been to NYC or for that matter a Bway show. They did see me perform this role in La Jolla. But this will be very special. And it was Tim s BIG BIRTHDAY on Wednesday. Thus the streamers in my apt.

Tonight I have Tim’s relatives coming, tomorrow my tax man and his family and then Sunday Tim and family…then the night off and tourism begins. And meals. because I won’t have to zip up my costumes till Tuesday …then I’ll be complaining that my costumes are too tight because of all the meals I ate…

Cabaret rehearsals continue. Usually every Sunday and Monday with adjustments for family visits, and auditions…ok got to go back…you’re in for a treat seeing any of these new performers in these roles…

Oh and I forgot…San Francisco JBoyers …you were amazing at the Emmy’s…

    Sounds like everything’s going great! I am definitely going to go to your cabaret. It seems so far away.

    I’ve always thought Donnie just really looks like a Tommy, so I’m glad he got put in. If you know any dates that Donnie be going on as Tommy or Colin will be on as Bob, would you mind posting them on the blog? :) I love seeing new people play the parts. I’ve actually never seen an understudy for Mary Delgado, either!

    Happy birthday to Tim, and I will see you soon!
