"We ladies of a "certain age" know that being under stage lights can trigger hot flashes (especially if you're wearing a wig or a heavy/tight costume). Peppermint oil has saved me on a number of occasions. A dab applied to the back of your neck is an instant cool down that lasts for up to an hour. It really DOES work. During MY THREE ANGELS (at Florida Rep), I had to have a wig, hat, corset, stocking, etc. --peppermint oil REALLY helped. No hot flashes on stage. And this show too (HEART SONG), which is very physical.Peppermint oil is the bomb."
The one and only, DOWNTOWN DIVA! Stephanie Davis is an actress, director, writer and legend in SWFL, y'all. We love her and can't get enough! She is the Liz Smith of the Florida. And let me just take a moment to talk about Stephanie's photography. This girl has MAD skills. Check out the exit sign photo on the contact page here.
"Well, I am addicted to and paranoid to not have White Flower oil. It's great to take a soothing bath at night. And I love to rub a tiny bit on muscles. And it really opens up the nose. The problem is most people get annoyed if you over use it because of the heavy eucalyptus spell. Sometime it can drive other actors nuts. Your very own hubby (Brendan Powers) can attest to that. So it's best to apply it before you get to the theater dressing room."
White Flower Analgesic Balm -- around $12! And I found this balm made of White Flower oil which looks kind of interesting for $3 here!
Alex was my FIRST guest artist! Presenting the Amazing Alexander Thomas, ladies and gents! Bren and I got to know Alex during our time at the Kitchen Theatre in Ithaca, NY. He and Brendan were in a production of Opus by Michael Hollinger directed by Rachel Lampert -- such a wonderful play and really well done there. Alex is an all around wonderful human and a truly special artist -- playwright, director and actor. His one-man show has been seen world-wide. Alex has also written a two-man show and one full length. His newest show Schwarz Gemacht just premiered in Berlin, Germany where he and his lovely wife call home (for a few more weeks!).
