The last 6 months of my life went by in a flash and I'm just catching up! As they say in Sound of Music, let's start from the very beginning.
My show got produced in London!!! It was truly an incredible, artistically inspiring experience. I LOVED my cast and creative team. The piece got a wonderful reception, and over 6000 people came through our UpStairs Lounge at Soho Theatre. I love London- in fact, just about the only thing I think the USA does better is Air Conditioning in summertime, which was nowhere to be found (certainly not on our opening night, but hey we were serving New Orleans summer realness)
Just look at this lovely cast!
My cast performed at West End Live for approx 1 gajillion people:
And sounded flipping amazing:
Even Stephen Schwartz dropped by rehearsal
Here is a trailer of our cast in action/full costume:
I showed up to opening night in one of my signature lewks of course:
At the end of the day- we got 40+ 4 and 5 star reviews from critics, and the people who hated my show REALLY REALLY hated it, which frankly I wouldn't have it any other way. Although I was back in the states by the time reviews started pouring in, I was so moved by all the love I saw online after every single performance from our audiences.
And as before in NYC, the UK production inspired some incredible fan art!
London, I love you! You have not seen the last of me, though I had to leave before I spent all my pounds at the vintage stores in Brick Lane. Til' next time xo
