Hi hi! Remember how I repeatedly used the phrase "blogoscopic fantasia" to describe today's post? Well, it's been postponed, slightly-- but for good reason! Today, beginning at 1PM I have my first Elphaba staging rehearsal (I believe we're doing musical numbers first) and, as such, I've been really getting my booty in gear with line and lyric memorization. Whether or not this is the expectation, I think it's way important for me to prepare as much as possible because, let me tell you, in becoming more acquainted with the script and score, I am realizing just how much of a beastly role Elphaba is, and I mean that in the best sense.
Oh, and this is SUPER FREAKING COOL: beginning March 2, Eden Espinosa will be San Francisco's new Elphaba! Such an honor and treat to be able to understudy her, after also having been fortunate enough to watch Teal Wicks, who is ridiculously, mind-blowingly great.
In breaking news from Dork City, last night I took a photo of a wardrobe rack on which both Eden's and my Elphaba costumes were chilling out, side by side Not sure if you'll be able to read the names unless you click on it, but nevertheless, behold!
That's all for now... But soon, my friends, so soon.
Off to memorize,
P.S. Oh, last night Halle Berry was in the audience! I thought that was kind of cool.
