The 2 week reading

The official website is up-- albeit sparce, its HERE!

Its very exciting. We only had a few hours of rehearsal today, but we learned quite a bit of music. To be honest its not clear at this point how involved the ensemble is going to be! So far there are only 3 songs for us, the opening, the finale, and a few aaahhhs here and there. The music we learned is GORGEOUS though. I really like it. Nathan Lane and Bebe Neuwirth are doing this reading, but who knows if they will continue on. No official casting has been announced yet as far as the the one production that is scheduled, which is in Chicago this coming fall. So we will see. In this economy there are no guarantees, heck there are no guarantees in showbiz no matter WHAT the economy is like. But nonetheless its VERY exciting for me to be part of something like this. I am totally thrilled and excited to see what the experience holds.. and in less than 2 weeks I will be flying off to chicago to start the Mary Poppins tour. Thats my life right now.. I basically haven't done A THING since august except travel and audition.. but now I'm finally working again.

To say that I am grateful would be an understatement.
