the tour this week was rough. we had a lot of driving, people were bitchy, 'tudes were flying and at some times it wasn't pretty- we got a little ugly too. we perform two shows, one on dating violence the other on acquaintance rape. we do the 'ar' play most of the time throughout the 8 weeks, with the 'dv' thrown in only a handful of times. we did 'dv' twice this week and for me, it was very painful that first performance. i literally was about three pages ahead of myself the whole time. i blanked on lines a few times and thankgod my castmates picked up the slack. i've never blanked on lines before, ever, and i was literally thrown for a loop- panic was setting in on my insides while on the outside i was going on with the show, smiling, touching emotions, and going on with the show while my mind was going a little loopy and my hands were sweating like crazy.
we were in maine for most of the week and i've never been in maine before so i was excited. maine is beeee-yeeeewwww-teee-fuuuulll, but somewhat, um, remote? i had a great time in maine, especially when a two hour drive turned into a four hour drive because our mapquest directions said go west when we were indeed supposed to go ummm, yeah, east.
we returned from maine yesterday and today kpr and i went to pa for kpr to buy a new car. he got a fancy schmancy toyota prius. HYBRID BABY!! this car has no, transmission, no keys and no gear shift. it's a little scary in an awesome way and will take some getting used to, but it is a truly awesome car. 60 mpg in the city and 51 on the highway! kpr needs a new car because kpr got a new job! wooohoo! a fun job, that can open a whole world of possibility for him and i'm so proud.
i drove in new york city for the first time today. hence the title. it was exhilarating and made me feel really awake, but i think i would turn into a gigantic stress ball if i had to do it every day.
we're in ma and upstate ny next week and then the week after we're in pa and then that's it. oh i have to start looking for a new gig. fun fun. i get my new headshots done at the end of april and i can't wait!
