"Earnest" closed last week - SUCH a great show! Easily one of my favorites, this was an incredible experience. We never had an 'off' night, we always felt so great about our performances and had the biggest blast every night. It was such a delight! I don't know how else to describe it, truly a delight. Such a light spot!
I have only a few pictures of the show, more to come! More to come! Here is the scene where Jack has just proposed to Gwendolyn...even though I basically talked him into it, every girl must act surprised when she's proposed to, no?
"The simplicity of your character makes you exquisitely incomprehensible to me!!"
The carnival of corsets.
Charlie doing her hair - every night she had thousands of curls to make...and she always made that face.
Tom and Tanya came to see the show closing night! My love for her is as big as my sleeves.
Me and my Mom flanking Jeff.
Me, Luone, Jeff and my Mom.
My favorite leading man of all time, Jeff. Truly the most stellar gent around!
Me with Bert and Charlie! These two crazy kids, I love them like family.
I will miss laughing with the girls in the dressing room before the show, lacing ourselves into our corsets, I will miss my garden scene with Charlie that I loved so much, I will miss (terribly) wearing the beautiful costumes, and I will definitely miss spending so much time with all those wonderful people. I love them all so much...
And of course, working with my Mom was the biggest blessing of all. How can I even put that into words? I know we'll work together again, but doing this play together was amazing. She is amazing. I love, love, LOVE her. After our final bow, we hugged.
I'm done with shows for a while, but I'm so grateful to have ended my run with a high note!
