On July 11, I turned well -- let's be real, I am not going to reveal that to the world. As I think we all know, we need all the help we can get out here in the wild world of theatre, film and casting...Like I want another reason for Casting Directors to think twice..."um no, I just don't see you as 30-35 any more. " Ugh.
I had a lovely celebration filled with all my favorite things this year. Some things good for me, some things not so good for me...Come on! It's my birthday! And on 7-11 you get free slurpies from 7-11! The Gods' must be crazy... So of course I got a Coke Slurpie! I mean it was free! It was by far the worst thing I have ingested in months...And was strangely delicious. I received lots of calls and cards and a couple of very sweet care packages from home filled with lots of wonderful goodies from people I love. And Brendan of course made the day very special -- even giving me a hand-made Birthday card. Oh to be married to a fellow artist! Life is so sweet. We aren't in rehearsals yet and are not running a show -- ie, we are out of work. Soooo, always looking on the bright side of life-- we had the whole day to share together by doing lots of things we love! Free birthday lunch with mild humiliation wearing a sombrero -- see pic here (Ha! Lucky for all us their site is down)! We had a beautiful dinner eating one of my favorite foods (sauteed blue crab claws!) and enjoyed G&T's and a fabulous sunset! And the best part of it was sharing the day with my man!
Time to get to work!!!! Ok so we are about to start rehearsals for a funny funny series of One Acts at Theatre Conspiracy here in Fort Myers. We have never done a show with them are really looking forward to this quirky show. We are in Act 2 and Act 3! So suckas, I better go get them words down because this process is fast and furious...SUMMERTIME in the theatre! Stay healthy! Can't wait to share my dressing table with you! #healthyactor #whatsonourdressingtable
What's your must have products? What did you choose to put in that tiny handbag of yours for the #TonyAwards tonight? Or what are you making your personal assistant lug around for you??...As we sit on the couch watching eating chips and dip & blackberries and cream, I image that these products would be at the TOP of my list...#RosebudSalve #YoungLiving Peppermint Oil #ReedsGingerChews #Riccola #Olba #VirginMary and a Hanky (I am a southern girl, I never leave home without one...). Please keep it interesting this year kids. We have a game of Cards Against Humanity waiting in the wings just in case...
What products are you superstitious about? Please share!
Stay healthy, y'all~
I'm a southern gal with liberal politics who has worked my ass off and sacrificed a lot in order to be a working regional theatre actor. There are lots of working actors who are out here grinding without begin famous. And we consider that we have already MADE it. I really like to tell stories and solve the puzzle of the text. I LOVE untangling scripts and unlocking characters. I really give a damn about the planet and am an avid gardener. I love to get my hands dirty. I am completely fascinated by fellow journey(man) actors and how we survive and thrive. Ballin' on a budget, Baby. http://www.rachelburttram.com/
