Yes, it's me. Maybe this is my New Year's resolution four months too late: to revive this blog.
I don't know why I have such an aversion to blogging; maybe it feels too much to me like a diary or a journal, and I always considered that stuff to be private. So, I just need to wrap my head around the face that a blog is NOT private thoughts ... it's public thoughts ... although why anyone would care about my two-cents' worth about anything, I don't know.
But, you did click on this blog, so maybe you DO want to know what I'm up to. I'll give it a shot.
It's been a busy spring for me, doing the annual "Gridiron" comedy show at the Orpheum Theatre, and jumping straight into another show, the musical "The Full Monty" at The Forum Theatre. "Gridiron" closed on April 13th, and "Full Monty" opened on the 25th, so I had to learn an entire Broadway musical in less than two weeks. Very challenging -- but very rewarding. My house is a mess -- but I got my lines memorized!
I hope you come see "The Full Monty" ... it is a bit risque, some adult language & themes, but it's a pretty clever show with some catchy music, and great characters. It got 10 Tony-award nominations when it ran on Broadway on 2002. The only reason it didn't win any that year is because it was up against "The Producers", which won just about everything.
"The Full Monty" runs at The Forum Theatre on Thursday-Friday-Saturday nights, and Sunday afternoons, through May 19.
Hope to see you there!
Ted, my daughter and I came to the show last night and just had a blast. We both thought you did a great job! As usual with Kansas audiences, we seem to be some of the few people standing at the end when an ovation is deserved; you guys earned it and we can't figure out why Kansans won't get on their feet for just about anything. Anyway, it was a really fun night and we were really impressed with the talent of the whole cast...some really nice voices there. We will be back to check out the Forum's next offering.
