If you are really lucky, you get the chance to be in productions where you wish it wouldn’t end. At least once. I have been crazy for Crazy For You.
The reasons can be for anything; you love the role that you are playing, the show is going to Broadway, or like my case, the cast works so incredibly well together. We have celebrated birthdays for multiple people every single week of performances. We have laughed, been silly, stressed out, and danced ourselves sticky sweaty these last 10 weeks of rehearsals and performances.
It isn’t every show that I truly look forward to seeing every person every day. I feel a wee bit sad that I won’t get to see them as much. Even though I have left the theatre at the end of the night sometimes with the need to soak in an ice bath or a tub of icy hot and bruised up, I have had a truly wonderful time working alongside such an outstanding group of people from every aspect of this production.
Every drop of sweat, every achy muscle, and every bit of glue has been well spent. I think this little gem sparkles just right. But just for two more performances. Friday and Saturday…
I am going to be a sad mess on Saturday.
Maybe even Sunday.
I am not looking forward to this.
