The day is finally here!! The one where I write my friends and family to tell you that tickets are available to the show I am starring in, Annie Get Your Gun!
Even as I write these words, I still can't believe I will be playing this part in just one week. It is truly a bucket list role that's been given to some of my idols. Ethel Merman. Mary Martin. Judy Garland (before they gave it to Betty Hutton). Bernadette Peters. To think that 9 months ago I hadn't done a musical in almost 10 years! Wow.
Our director Drew Franklin is incredibly talented and so professional to work with (our lives have crossed paths through my old job working at Manhattan Movement and Arts Center!) and Paolo Perez, our musical director, who I previously worked with in South Pacific, has been so helpful getting me ready for the 13 gorgeous Irving Berlin songs I will be singing! As prepared as I may be, I am still TERRIFIED at the thought of captivating an audience for that long!!
So, it would make me feel a whole lot better if I saw your smiling faces =)
Although NCT may be a local BK theater company, this is a huge leap for me! And I would love nothing more than to share my voice and love of theater with you all. NOTHING makes me happier than when I am on a stage. And NOTHING makes me happier than when I see people I care about afterwards.
See the flyer attached. To see show dates and to purchase tickets click here, and let me know which night you will be coming.
Can't wait to see you there!
All my love, Jen
