  • It’s A Small World After All

    During the second week of Chimes rehearsal, Whore began rehearsing down the hall.  Obviously artistic staff would pass in the hallways, and Day 1 I recognized Whore's ASM.  I couldn't figure out how I knew this girl, but I would have recognized her anywhere.  Every time I walked down the hall, I would stare at her, trying to figure out what I knew her from.  It was driving me nuts!  Just when I was starting to feel like I couldn't get any creepier, I realized how I knew her.  She went to high school with my boyfriend, and I recognized her from his facebook pictures!!  Can you say CREEP?  A couple days later, I was assigned a crew position on ( you guessed it) Whore.  Throughout the run Brittany (Whore's ASM) and I got very close and are now good friends.  All I have to say is... It's A Small World After All.

  • An Australian

    The show opened last night. Its been a great, and fast!, process, if somewhat unnerving realising the margin for error is zero. It is literally jump and hope that its ok. Most bizarre has been seeing the show completely transform into some sort of parable on the American Dream. The play is certainly about ambition, but of course it wasn't written specifically for here, so its been strange to see the piece transform into something that resonates deeply with an American ideology. But I'll still take credit for it! I think the themes of alienation, ambition and the media are more resonant here than back in Australia. And NY is that sort of city- its such a cliche but everyone knows of someone who went balls to the wall and ran home crying, something that really doesn't happen quite as much in Australia.
