And thus it ends
Almost as quickly as it began, my friends, my leg of the Wizard of Oz tour comes to a close.
I have so much to write about the entire process. And believe me, it will come.
It began with the audition: just another playbill.com open non-equity call, which my boyfriend encouraged me to go to.
Then callbacks. I got bronchitis, and the boyfriend's mom made me some kind of magical Chinese crack tea which made me sing well.
Then the call that I never expected, which changed my life entirely.
Then waiting for the contract, which almost drove me nuts.
Then rehearsals, which were a challenge, mentally and physically, and an adventure all in themselves.
Then the leaving, which was sad and exciting all at once. Then the great process known as the tour.
I am so, so lucky to have known with all of you wonderful actors and become your friends. I am a better performer and person after this wonderful, insane, sometimes awful, sometimes hilarious, crazy time of my life. Thank you to all of you.
