I am such a sap when it comes to closing weekends.
I have spent the last 2 months with a bunch of wonderful people bringing to life this coming of age story. I am a little sad that it’s now coming to a close.
I have a process that I tend to go through when it comes to Opening and Closing nights. About a week before the show opens, I have my little panic attacks and butterflies. Then come Opening Night, I am fine, just excited to get things under way. Then during the week of Closing, I feel the pangs of sadness hit me. I get a little sad, because there are people that I probably won’t ever see again. This always happens though. You can promise to keep in touch, but eventually things begin to slip, and you just lose track. So I make sure to say my thank you’s to the cast on Opening Night. I would be a hot mess if I had to write those cards during the week of Closing.
So while I am living in my verklemptiness, I look forward to meeting up with those same people on Friday to begin closing out Bless Me, Ultima.
For those of you who have yet to see it, you have three opportunities to catch this show. You will laugh, and if you have a heart, you will definitely cry. The end of Act 1 messes me up, every time.
Get your tickets HERE or go to TeatroVision.Org and click the “Buy Tickets” link. Showtimes are 8 PM on Friday and Saturday and 2 PM on Sunday. The theatre is located on the corner of Alum Rock Ave and King Rd. Let me know if you can make it so I can look of you in the lobby.
I hope to see you there!!
