Getting back into the swing of things

My mini-break is winding down. Oklahoma! and Snow White left me with four weeks off, with only production meetings for the Oedipus Duplex that I'm costume designing to fill the month. Mostly I've been filling the time going out a lot and enjoying having a life for a change.

Now, however, it's back to the grindstone. Storybook starts rehearsals on Tuesday, waitressing is winding down, and Wednesday night I've got to go take measurements for the cast of Mother Phoeker, Thursday night for Blinding Pains. Snow White opens October 21st.

I've seen a play a week for the past month. Having someone with access to professional comp tickets is a lovely perk (Handy, that). I saw Forever Plaid at Renton Civic, The Secret Garden at Driftwood Players, The Producers at Seattle Musical Theatre, and tomorrow night I'm going to go see the premier of Contact the musical at Center Stage. Good or bad, it's nice to see friends. (Actually, it's more fun to see the bad ones, as you can make snarky comments throughout)

I'm also finishing up a retro coat for Lachellybelly to add to my repro sundress with handstitched pin tucks. I'm trying to get another set done before I have to set it all aside to costume Oedipus.

Happy one month anniversary, Alan!
