What the eff am I doing up at 7:55 am? Well, I have a cold and my friggin’ medicine seems to be giving me the jimmy legs…..and the jimmy mind….all I can do is run over my opening for Sharron’s Holiday Party ( info is down one blog, incidentally ) …..Now, I went to see a cabaret hosted by my young friend Klye on Monday…I was so struck by the work and time that went into it. This was no rag tag, hoge poge….slap-dash…..alright Sharron move on……fly by night thing….Kyle did alot of writing here…and figuring…..he was just lovely….he is a grand singer and easy on the eyes for a youngin’ but my favourite part….he is a fantastic storyteller. I remember when I was doing Showboat and I did a cabaret and George Grizzard came out to see it and after he took me aside and told me that I should never forget that I am a storyteller first…I was like….whatever….but that is something that has stuck with me and it is in instances like this that I recall the importance. People love a good story more than anything. And young Kyle told a few.
There were awesome guests….my pal Kristina from Hairspray The MOVIE!!!! was excellent…she sang a song from the Last Five Years and just knocked it out of the park, and Jordan Bell sang a tune I had never heard before and the side of me that is covetous wanted to steal it right away….but I am older and getting past those things….oh ya…and he sang it very, very well. All of the guests were just wonderful and I had a grand night. George and I both found it very entertainin and uplifting! Who could ask for anything more?
Well, there are only three more shows of “Songs” and we have fulfilled our little dream of a grassroots revolution.
This last week has been more and more packed every night. Everytime we walk out it is a grand surprise!
We love doing it! Here is my dream…..
tonight…Thursday.. which hasn’t had a huge presale….will have a huge audience and the last night, Saturday…will just be packed….so packed…..I put it into the universe.
What am I doing up?
