Grueling GREASEPAINT

Have I EVER looked more glamorous?
Easily the most physically demanding show the three of us have ever done. Relentless.

Off and Roaring

Now Playing

It's a controversial production to say the least. A radical take on the material.
But we are a close-knit little group and we keep each other afloat. Here with my castmates Michelle Aravena, Caesar Samayoa and Gregory Treco.
Also, our director Don Stephenson and choreographer Liza Gennaro.

An outing

Went to see a new musical at the Long Wharf Theatre in New Haven, a bio of Toulouse-Lautrec called MY PARIS. Great pedigree: music & lyrics by Charles Aznavour adapted by Jason Robert Brown, Book by Alfred Uhry, Directed and choreographed by Kathleen Marshall.
I got to hug some lovely mates in the cast including Darius Barnes, Tim Hughes, Tom Hewitt, Nikka Graff Lanzarone and fellow Aussie Jamie Jackson.
Gorgeous Tom Hewitt and I were a little bemused that we were sporting such similar looks, right down to our grandpa shirts!!!

On this day in 1954

THE PAJAMA GAME opened on Broadway. I've always been so impressed that Mum had her name on the sheet music for the Australian production.
Dad introduced "Steam Heat" with Tikki Taylor and Kevan Johnston

East Haddam

We're ba-a-a-a-a-ck!! The only shop near the Goodspeed Opera House is a 20 minute walk along this scary highway.
There's no footpath and on a windy day it's hard not to get blown into oncoming traffic.

But we did it for three months during HELLO, DOLLY! so we were prepared for it.
A welcome addition to the neighborhood is a coffee shop which was still being built when we were last here.
So now we have somewhere else to sit that's not our living room.
We're at the end of Week One of rehearsals for ROAR OF THE GREASEPAINT
It's a bewildering piece but we're slowly finding our feet. Here are the gorgeous Michelle Aravena and Caesar Samayoa, my partners in this adventure.
