Final Curtain

I have been performing with the Thrillionaires for about two years and have LOVED every minute of it. I have learned so much and have met some of the greatest people on this planet. I always looked forward to every show, always amazed at the genius that was created on stage. If you've ever been to one of our performances, you know exactly what I'm talking about.

At a meeting last week, the founders told us that we would no longer be performing weekly shows. They needed to put things on hold for a while to get some business things in order and sort of re-assess what they want the Thrillionaires to be. I had mixed feelings about their decision - I was sad to see the weekly shows go. Sad that we wouldn't get to perform together as often.

From my understanding, what they've envisioned for the Thrillionaires is true improvised theater - an actual play or musical that is made up on a whim. A big show every few months that runs 3 or 4 nights. A big show that has an amazing set, costumes, props. We would have weeks to really study and sink our teeth into a genre so we can put on a fantastic show. If the weekly shows were that successful and that brilliant, can you imagine what will happen when we can really work and polish and put on a grand show that will blow the roof off?

After all, the most important aspect is more than taken care of - the cast. The group that makes up the Thrillionaires is second to none. The actors that create these stories and songs out of thin air are the best in the business! They never, ever cease to amaze me.

So tonight is my final weekly show with Thrillionaires. It's bittersweet! Thank you to everyone who supported me and my fellow players by coming to our shows and spreading the word. I feel so fortunate to be included in this amazing group. Bigger and better shows (is that possible? Is that physically possible?) are on the horizon, so keep your eyes open for upcoming Thrillionaires theater! And if I'm lucky enough to perform with these golden peeps, I have nothing to worry about. Encore!

Even more so because I couldn't come to see you on Saturday!
