Another Sold Out Sunday

Wow, another huge day at the theatre. A packed house and a tremendously responsive group at that.

Its great to end the week on a high note (literally and figuratively). I must confess that I am sometimes tired at the end of the week but the life and energy that pours out of the audiences and the people I meet at the stage door fills me back up again. I'm like the Energizer Bunny.

So, thanks everyone for that!

We have a nice day planned for tomorrow's day off. Some friends are coming into town and I've got to get to work on another little project I've been putting off (more on that later) and I've got to get back to some reading. I'm in the midst of three different books.

By the way... Andrew sent in a photo he took of us outside the stage door. It is up on the Facebook fan page. And Alex gave me the nicest gift of a plaque with a great quote inscribed "Life Is A Song, Love Is The Music." I'm going to put it up in the theatre for everyone to share. (Thanks Alex).

There are so many great quotes that I've kept with me over the years. Quotes from Presidents, Spiritual leaders, Business people to Poets, you name it.

I'm a big fan of the poet Charles Baudelaire 1821-1867. I began reading his works while in a comparative literature class in undergraduate school and got hooked. He was a contemporary of Dickens, 1812-1870, but Baudelaire lived in France. He was quite controversial and "dark" for his day... Carton probably would have liked him.

Hi James,

Evan's friends saw the show on Saturday and loved it. They mentioned that everyone was up on their feet and loving "A Tale".
Other friends will see you soon and we will be there on the 11th.
Sooooo happy the audiences are loving it!

I like the quotes too, above all those from Oscar Wilde.

"I'm like the Energizer Bunny", ja, ja. You are a little bigger than the Bunny, aren't you? Ja, ja. But I think you are as cute as it is ;) Anyway, don't miss your energy!

Oh, charles baudelaire!! I became his fan since I read his french translations of Edgar Allan Poe
(Baudelaire was his fan and I have to admit that some of Poe's translated poems are better than the original)and then loved his "Fleurs du mal"!
I wonder which three books you are reading right now (Just curiosity, I'm a bookworm :P )
I suggest you a book that is quite beautiful and inspiring : Life, by Paulo Coelho. It is filled with quotes from all of his interesting reading!
Anyway, as always...keep up the good job! :D
