long time no speak


i know it seems like a long time since I wrote. We’ve been literally running around. I start Les Miz rehearsals Monday…so I’m listening to the music again as I jog around the ROse BOwl. I havent’ sung it since 1990..and there are subtle changes..for one, I’m not Eponine this time..lol.But I had a nice coffee date with Michelle Maika who is playing Cosette this time. SHe was Eponine on the 2nd Nat’l Tour . SO we were doing it at the same time in different cities. She still looks like a kid ,but is now also a pschotherapist ,among acting,and a mother of a beautiful 5 year old girl.

I have an audition tomorrow for a play, no singing, but they describe her as ‘ferret -like, wiry, mismatched ,ill-fitting clothes, but fastidious in her work as a stage mgr ..for a bway show..(that is sposed to open at the AUgust WIlson” It s a sweet comedy, the only thing..I’m to be British. SO I have to lose my NJersey slang.

Lots of mvmt lately with adoption too so Ill let you know when I know more… signing off

    Sure hope u get that part in the comedy that’s “supposed to open at the August Wilson theatre.” That’s a riot! There IS some kind of magnetic attraction to that theatre!

    U don’t know me, & I’m just one of the millions of JB fans out there, but I saw yr fabulous performance in JB 4 x. The last time in March ’08 & I wanted 2 thank u afterwards for yr wonderful work & singing out so strong that night (usually it’s sung soft) in the duet w/ML. But all the girls ran away fast, zap, zap, zap, zap out the stage door.

    Good luck w/everthing. Stay well, u & Tim & whoever else might be showing up in the family at some point in time. Love yr blog! Zanna

    Nice to hear some updates. Glad the Les Mis rehearsals are going well. Sounds like you are having a really great time. Have you talked to JLY yet? It must be fun seeing him again.

    Good luck with your audition tomorrow. Sounds like a really fun audition. British?? That would be a really fun accent to get used to!

    I am so happy that the adoption is moving along. Can’t wait for more updates.

    Talk to you soon,
