Broadway On Broadway!
HD News is covering the entire A Tale of Two Cities process from beginning to Opening Night and so they accompanied me on the journey today.
We arrived in Times Square at about 11:45 am and went to the holding area for all the performers. It was a "who's who" of Broadway with every show represented.
It truly reminded me just how small the Broadway community is and how important it is to support each other in our endeavors.
It was about 85 degrees out there today and I was, of course, wearing my "Carton Coat" which weighs about 300 lbs... ok, maybe 15 lbs but it was HOT!
As I waited my turn to sing (right after The Little Mermaid) I could look out beyond the stage to Times Square. It was filled... and I mean FILLED with people packed right up to the lip of the stage. I try to remind myself everyday just how blessed I am to be able to do what I do and that was easy to do today.
I walked out onto that stage, the sun was shining, there was an orchestra behind me and then I heard the first note of I Can't Recall. I began to sing and the song was over before I knew it and the audience was ever so kind.
Sometimes it happens that way... I kinda get in "the zone" and time flies by.
As I left the stage and walked toward the reception area... I just smiled. I just got to sing quite literally ON Broadway!
Thanks to all who came and thanks to all who are supporting the show!
