Yay, Fame and fortune, mine forever. Or at least, maybe a bigger NYC audience.
Turn up your speakers on this one, it’s hard to hear me. (Ha! That’s a first!)
I woke up this morning to a scratchy throat and was surprised by an early period. And my whole body was sore from the inside out. I was like, “No!!!! Please not now!! Not this weekend!” It was definitely my body’s way of telling me to take it easy.
It figures because I’ve been running around so stressed out in this city like nobody’s business ready to punch the lights out of any man who whistles at me within arm’s distance. Carrying all this crap on the subway from sun up to sun down. Plus this place is filthy. And I blow out black soot every morning from my nose.
My friend LeVan did his show at the NY Fringe here last August and I don’t know how the guy was able to still stand after. I’m still in my 20s and I’m tired by all this running around town.
Doing a show in NY can kill you. But I won’t let it.
So Marjorie and I had an easy day at the apartment. My tech, Jen said, “Tech’s orders to you are to relax, stay warm (because it’s been cold the last two days) and take it easy.”
I can’t believe my show is in two days. Right now our reservation lists are ok. Saturday and Monday will be pretty full, if not sold out at this rate, but our Sunday shows could be a lot better. I’m trying to not get too nervous about the fact that a lot of theater presenters will be there and some of my funders. Also I’m nervous about the reviewers. I’m not really fond of post-press. And I know reviews are necessary, but I really don’t like them. I much prefer pre-press.
Anyway, so as promised, here are the pics of me in the Mayor’s Proclamation.
And here is where my show is mentioned in the proclamation! Yay!
And here is the flyer with the show info.
Tell your friends!
And here is D’Lo kissing me.
