This was huge fun, if nerve wracking, as we got one rehearsal with the orchestra for songs most of us had never sung before. I got to fulfil my fantasy of playing three roles I'll probably never get a crack at with "76 Trombones". "I've Grown Accustomed To Her Face" and "I Don't Understand The Poor" from A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE AND MURDER.
Plus I bonded with my three FABULOUS co-stars, including the wonderful Laurie Wells. I even made the journey to see her mad '60s Vegas style songfest TRIP OF LOVE the following day, also starring my PRISCILLA mate Kyle Brown (left, pictured with Nick Adams)
Conor Ryan is gorgeous, young and can sing anything so I should hate him.
But I want to be able to say "I knew him when".
And here's Gizel Jimenez with the gorgeous Bushnell Theatre in Hartford behind her. We had a packed house for the show.
