I’ve said this before, but it bears repeating: One cannot do a solo show alone. I had great help from the obvious suspects, of course, like my director, Jen and the technical support of Joey and Andrew. But there were also others who helped with a variety of skills and talents, including, most definitely, my amazing opening acts! I was very lucky to have gotten so many talented people to open for my solo show.
In addition to all of these people on my list of “Who To Thank” I add every single audience member who carved out a bit of time on their schedule to see the show. Life is busy and it can be hard to make time to see a bit of art on a Thursday night. So I’m grateful and honored for everyone who took the time and came out. Beyond that, I again thank the audience members who were generous enough with their enjoyment of the show to tell me (an actor’s ego thanks you for that) and to tell others. I had quite a few audience members over the run who had heard about the show because someone they knew saw it, loved it, and suggested it. And let me tell you, it certainly gives a performer a warm fuzzy feeling to look out into the audience and see so many familiar faces! Yet it gives the same performer another type of joy to look out into that crowd and realize she doesn’t recognize every single face; that there are people who came–not because they’re supporting their friend–but they just want to see a good show, and heard that this was one.
I hope I gave everyone–friends and strangers–a good show.
