One Day Before Opening!
The support of the audiences has been astounding and we're looking forward to an incredible evening tomorrow night. Needless to say that most everyone is a bit fatigued from the long hours but nothing is going to get in the way of our great night. It will be a celebration of all the hard work we've done.
I can't echo this point enough how truly amazing the cast and crew of A Tale of Two Cities is.
It's been a filled couple of weeks. I do wish my parents were alive to see this show. One or both of them has come to every opening I've had on Broadway. I will miss them tomorrow night (as I do every night).
The circle of life has been so clear to me during this time. The incredible birth of our daughter two weeks ago and the loss of my uncle (an amazing man) to cancer just one week ago. He did get to see photos of the baby before he passed which made him happy.
And today... today we got some great news. My father-in-law (one of the strongest men I've ever met) has been battling cancer for quite a while and today he got a clean bill of health from the Oncologist!
I don't take life for granted anymore... come to think of it, I never really have.
But with the events of the past few weeks I'm looking at our Opening Night as a celebration not just of our show and the hard work we've all done, but also as a celebration of life and the lives of those who could not be here to share it with us.
Life is a blessing... live every minute of it.
