On the Twentieth Century

5th row!  Kristin Chenowith made her entrance down our aisle!!
I LOVED it!! Jason Alexander and Bryan Batt sat one row behind us.
Of course, I had the original Broadway Cast recording in my head.  But, this was amazing.  I just wish Bruce Marsh had been with us!!

On the Twentieth Century

Saw these two posters next to each other last night outside the Belasco Theatre where I saw HEDWIG but with Michael C. Hall.
Tonight I see ON THE TWENTIETH CENTURY starring Kristin Chenowith!!  I CAN'T WAIT!
Am going with my friend Vito Caramia.
My co worker saw it the other night and loved it!!
I have been wanting to see this since Bruce Marsh and I used to listen to the Original Broadway Cast recording starring Madeline Kahn!
If ANYONE was meant to play this part it's Kristin Chenowith.  She has the opera voice training and comic timing and chops and beauty to be the successor to Madeline!!

Hedwig and Hall

Saw HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH last night at the Belasco Theatre with my friend Eric Robledo!
He had never seen the movie, which I love.
I wanted to see John Cameron Mitchell, who had finally stepped back into the role he created.
Neil Patrick Harris, Andrew Rennells and Michael C Hall had done the role previously.
I got tickets but then JCM hurt his knee. He took a week off and Michael stepped back into the role.
I was going to wait, but then Eric said he'd never seen it at all so it didn't matter who was in the lead, and I had heard MCH was very good, so we went.
Both of us were VERY impressed!
Eric was really blown away.
I kind of wasn't expecting much and MCH really showed me he has it!!
A very strong singer I had no idea.
I strongly suggest to go see it!!!

 Going to see this tonight with Eric.  Thanks to benefits from my job.  Should be interesting.
 We had great seats!!!  It was very good, a bit confusing plot wise, but the acting was very good!  Another perk of work!!
Ha and NO we didn't get wet...the people who sat down front on the other side might have gotten splashed when he was cleaning the fish and washing the dishes.  We stayed dry on land  hah

Paying Respects and Saying Goodbye

God Bless Stan Tomczak for taking me to see Cathy's grave.  I  never got to say goodbye and this helped with some closure.  Thank God for him..he let me cry then got me laughing so hard tears came out of my eyes, but happy tears.  Cathy brought us all together and what a fun merry band of misfits we were. She's with her beloved parents again and will always be a part of our hearts.  And and giggles!

Pooh and Mame

Yesterday I met up with my friend Tammy Scruggs who was visiting from Covington, VA.  We have known each other since college days.  She played Mame and she directed me in Winnie the Pooh.  How fun!!  Love long last friendships and she is one wonderful lady and friend.
and it was HER idea to be in bed..hah.
Fun and Friendship!!

Another Year Goes...Another Year Arrives Goodbye 2014 Hello 2015!

Grateful for this year, the highs and lows the good the not so good.
Glad to be Sober and healthy and loved.  And wanted and needed.
Started out last year FAT..lost 65 lbs...but then gained back 35.
Was in two shows, Sound of Recovery Music (I had the lead, which helped with motivation to lose weight), as well as God As We Understood God Godspell (I sang "Oh Bless the Lord" rewritten as "Turn Over Your Control".  It was fun.  I found we made quite an impact, contrary to my negative thinking.
In July I got a disappointment adn that got me back on the downward my NY Resolution one more time...lose the weight and keep it off.
I also had some health issues...a growth on my uvula, that was taken off, then grew back, but when lasered off...has stayed gone..thankfully..and it wasn't cancerous.
Then  I had some heart issue scare...long story short, my heart is in great shape but too much caffeine and stress, and I believe too much garcinia cambogia, messed it up.
All fine now...thankfully.
Lease is up in Jersey Jan 31 and I"m not resigning, so we'll see where I got next.  Stay here..or go back to LA...
I have a lot going for me here.  But things could happen there.
Stay go...
Back on track with food..and electronic time wasters.
I know the drill...just gotta go it.
Thank you all!!

A Very Merry Christmas

I had a nice quiet day, thanks to Eric and this lovely tree and lights.
Then, off to Darren's.  Thanks to him I had a place to go and a meal to eat and a silly nasty game to play.  It was wonderful, fun, filling and friendly!!

Christmas Eve

It's rainy/drizzly tonight.  Warm though.  I went to church at Marble Collegiate with Geri Wall and her son and his wife.  I sang LOUD!  Love Christmas songs.  A beautiful service.  Look for Jesus around us.  And I saw him...when a kid on the subway who looked so tired, maybe from working all day, gave a dollar to a woman who was begging for money.  I've seen her for years...still same old story...but whereas I looked away...he gave her a dollar.  God bless.
Rest of evening was low key.  Staying in the city at a friend's.  Very grateful for wonderful friends in my life.
Listened to some Christmas songs, YouTube videos.  Now, to sleep.
Missing so many, but holding them all in my heart.
Merry Christmas!
