Last week was crazy!  I started rehearsals for Tony and Tina’s Wedding, and after only 4 rehearsals the show opened. I have never in my career had such little rehearsal time, or such little script.  Most of the show is improve, so its completely different than any show I have ever done.  To say I was nervous was an understatement.  I was nervous about the improve, and nervous about how I would feel wearing a baby belly.  Not knowing what to expect from the audience was exciting but also scary.  You have to be completely prepared with your character’s background, and the other characters story and be “on” for 2.5 hours.  I have to say I am completely in love with this show.  It’s different every night, depending on the audience, and action is happening all around the room.  Chatting with people is so fun and interesting, most of the time I feel like I am at a real wedding.  The cast is amazingly talented.  They have me cracking up every night, and working to match their talent and energy.  They all feel like family to me already.  It will be sad when the show closes.  I can only hope I get to work with them all again.  If you are in the Bethlehem area, please check out Tony and Tina’s Wedding at Musikfest Cafe/ArtsQuest.  It’s such a fun show, you won’t be disappointed!
