Sorry I didn’t catch you up! I’ve been a little distracted with everything. Theater’s been taking a bit of a background place to a new research position I just started, being vice-president of the Coalition for Global Awareness (http://cgaasu.wordpress.com/), and a mentor for some high school science students in the Quanta program. Oi.
But I did just perform in a musical showcase type-experience that was imagined-up and directed by the wonderful Prue Dense of the ASU theater department. Her thesis was on emphasizing the joy of performing over particular acting methods to create a truly energized performance.
I got to perform the numbers Girl in 14G, Cellblock Tango (as Velma, it was fabulous)
Lady Marmalade (as Pink’s role), Song of Love (from Once Upon a Mattress), What is this Feeling from Wicked (as an adorable Ozian), and Totally Fucked from Spring Awakening (as another fucked up child).
Other numbers included: Therapy (from Tick, tick, boom!), Once upon a December (from Anastasia), and others!!!
It was a blast and I got to perform at the Madcap theaters in the NewTimes room. It was a great experience and I’ve made some very good friends. If I was smart, I would’ve posted before the show so you could’ve seen it. But instead, you can just imagine how fantastic it was 😉
Heads up! Prue is writing another capstone, this one combining ancient mythology with a modern career and a monologue based on song lyrics. Sound crazy? You bet 🙂
And this time I’ll keep you posted. Or just keep posting ?
