As much as I try to keep cheerful and perpetually bubbly, I can’t help but whine a little right about now. I had the flu (which explains the lack of posting, at least partially), school is starting to overwhelm me just a little bit, and, on top of all that, our production of BARE was canceled after two performers dropped out. I could attribute this to a number of things, mostly poor planning on the part of our “producer,” but really all I can do is feel disappointed about how a great opportunity was ripped away from me through no fault of my own. I mean, how often am I going to get a lead in a regional premiere of a musical that I really, deeply connect with? (And let’s not even begin to talk about how perfect the music was for my voice.) I feel like this was my chance to make a huge impression on a lot of people, and now it’s gone.
I keep churning, but I’m getting absolutely nowhere.
