The night before the curtain goes up...
Well finally a night to relax. Not really, because I have actually been working on a number of things that have to get done before tomorrow night. The show is ready. I have an awesome cast performing a fantastic script. And now it all comes together, in front of an audience.
Acting is cathartic. Becoming someone else and sharing that with the people in the seats is the magic. It's an awesome feeling being the wizard that controls the magic. Being a director however is like being a parent, and opening night is graduation. I am extremely proud of my entire cast.
The downside of all of this, is that I am drained. I have spent a lot of time and energy on this project and I am exhausted.
I wouldn't trade it for the world.
