The Show Vortex
I only have Sunday's off, and due to the 45minute drive to and then again from work every day, means really long days. There's no place for me to go when I have a few hours off between some "morning" bit of work and then the "evening" bit of work, what this means ... I'm out of the house stupid early and getting back really pretty late. Now, it's not undoable, clearly, as I've been doing it. But it does make for 'almost instant crashing' on the couch or in bed when I get home ... and thus, the lack of blog posts I've NOt done over the past few days. (Is that even a semi accurate sentence? Probably NOt.) I also "fear" that this will likely be a continuing theme for the rest of this month. So ... yeah ... we'll see.
Anyhoo...the tour officially opened last night, and the first show, despite a few prop glitches, went really well. The talk back at the end of the show yielded some pretty good questions, and there was even a Mom who came up to the actor after the talk back to say how much she and her kids loved it. That the boys, who were all middle school age, started out sitting behind their parents and had to come next to them for the scary factor of "Pure Poe". :) And that they paid attention really well, well better than they do for other things, so GOOD!!! :o)
In other news ... I've got NOthing. Hahahaha.....
