Giants can be good.
You decide what’s right,
You decide what’s good.
Someone Anonymously requested I sing “The Letter” from Billy Eliott… so here it is!
Also - I’m not making excuses but I recorded this once and by the seat of my pants.
Just me singing… Tumblr friends.
“I Can Hear the Bells” from Hairspray!
Oh what one does when one is bored… and between musicals.
I have fans!
Well… I have “fan” at least.
A woman said to me this morning that she recognized me from theatre and she’s seen all of my shows and I’m wonderful!
My heart swelled and my head, just a tiny bit.
This happens to me a lot but every single time it makes me a bit giddy. It’s nice to be appreciated!
The dress rehearsal for Nunsense was tonight and the crowd loved it! Yay! Mere days now until we open…
I had to warm up for rehearsals today so I thought - I’m going to sing my favorite song from The Addams Family musical - Just Around the Corner. Then I thought, I’ll record it and upload it to Tumblr because I’m really nerdy.
Hilarious side note: My recording matched a third party copyright… my voice is not that close to Bebe - sheesh. I wish.
It’s family first, and family last and family by and by. When you’re an Addams, the standard answers don’t apply. When you’re an Addams you do as Addams do or…
Somebody asked me to post an audio clip from my Nunsense rehearsals - but I thought I’d do one better and post a video.
It’s not in costume (obviously) AND we’re still very raw… so please keep that in mind! (Apologies, apologies, apologies)
But there you have it…
I am playing Sister Hubert - and I’m the one singing most of this (not as though it’s obviously me with the red hair or anything)
Oh dear, the first advertisement including a publicity photo for the show I’m in. I think I look evil… strangely not holy at all.
