And we're off!!

And thanks for the flowers Jodie, Janet & Alyson!
I think Anastasia and I look like Jane Powell and Huntz Hall.
below, with the impossibly handsome Ian Parmenter
I mean, that's Prince Charming, right?

I was told I was allowed to bring in some personal photos to place surreptitiously on the set of my character's bedroom, so I looked for character shots of Aussie friends that looked in period for the 30s. I've got a shot of Jill Perryman in CAN-CAN, a pic of TT in CANDIDE, a shot of Mum from a Tivoli number and if you look at the blonde on the mirror you'll see it's Nancye Hayes as Sally Bowles in CABARET. A little touch of home in Houston.

2nd Day of Tech

with Anastasia Barzee

with Joey Sorge
and Jimmy Kieffer
Back in the frock
I managed to keep my birthday a secret on the actual day but a couple of days later word got around so I was ambushed back at the hotel after work and given an impromptu party. That's Aussie Leisa Mather in the glasses, with Charis Leos, Ron Wisniski, Lucas Thompson and Kristyn Pope.
Laura Cable was excited!
Robbie Roby less so....
But Lucas Thompson and Kinsland Howell were rapt
And Bernard Dotson gave me a birthday orange!

First Day on Stage

Not in costume yet, and I'm wearing my mike on a piece of elastic around my head which explains the slight Ena Sharples look.

Houston Eats

Most of the eateries in Houston are pretty terrific but one local hangout has earned our repeat business...the Grand Lux Café
The décor is grand indeed but the restaurant is situated in a strip mall on a main road and is usually packed with families and diners of all ages.

This bejeweled hamburger was not on the menu but is available to buy at the Galleria mall across the street for a mere $600.
