Suds at Actors Theatre of Louisville

I thought I would add these photos of a production of SUDS i did in 1993?? at ACTORS THEATRE OF LOUISVILLE. Steve Gunderson, who was one of the creators and performers in the original production, sent them to me. He’s about to start rehearsal in a new musical at La Jolla Playhouse, and had to dance for Sergio!!!!!!!!

Speaking of choreographers…Javier Velasco was our’s for this show. I don’t think I ever worked so hard in my life. He was so patient with me. I was totally retarded and slow at picking up the stylized dances…it was all Bacharach music.. I played the lead..and it was great training for everything that followed.

I loved Louisville, except I had bad allergies.And the Actors theatre Of Louisville is an amazing place to work.

Thank you Steve for reminding me of my youth..and the character Ingenue..yee ha..

    I love to see stuff like this, especially since I haven’t seen you in person for a while! I had surgery on my knee this morning so I’ve been able to catch up on my “computering” :-)

    I hope you had a wonderful 4th and hopefully I’ll be seeing you in CA in a few weeks! My plans are still up in the air, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed!!!

    Hey hey! Love the pics! Is that Norbert Leo Butz in some of them? If not it’s his twin. Hope all is well in Cali! I, and NYC, miss you!

    Just thought I’d stop by to catch up on what’s going on with you, Jen! :) Love the pictures- YAY character ingenues!

    Packy sends his love- he and I went on an audition TOGETHER yesterday here in New York. Yes, together! The two of us even wound up reading a scene opposite each other- the director thought we had “great chemistry”! lol I’ll let you know if anything comes of it, but whatever the case… it was a blast and a laugh and a half!

    Jen – how great to see those photos of you. They must bring back some great memories. Are you getting excited for Les Mis? When do rehearsals start? I so wish I could be there, but I will be in NYC Aug 3-9. I even have a ticket to see JB on the 6th. Can’t wait, but it will be my first time since you, JLY, and Daniel left. I’ll try to keep an open mind :) Hope you and Tim are doing well. Take care. -Melissa
