Yesterday we had our last rehearsal before today’s opening night. What a day. The emotional level in the dressing room before we started was so intense, that I felt I could smell it. Even over all the makeup and hairspray. The last minute hugs, looks of encouragement and thumbs ups and then onto the stage.
We went through the show well, in spite of a good list of “things to improve”. The energy was good and the feeling on stage as well. There were moments, when I was not acting but rather living the role I play. That is good, I suppose?
