I cannot stop listening to "Who Loves You" from from the Jersey Boys recording. It's the only song I play when I'm at my computer. It's bad. I want to just like, dance crazily around my basement when it's on.

I should update more. I'm doing things, it's not like there's nothing to update about.

I just watched a Travel Guide Channel "Passport To Europe" about London... there's one about Paris at noon.

We got our orientation-week schedules! This is the first show we're seeing:
Frost / Nixon -- David Frost's interviews with Richard Nixon, following the Watergate scandal in 1972 and the President's humiliating resignation, drew the largest audience for a news interview ever. Could this British talk-show host be the one to elicit an apology from the man who committed one of the biggest felonies in American political history?

I am so excited. Ahhdjkaf.

I just re-read The Perks of Being A Wallflower & The Virgin Suicides. My plays / novel for London should be coming soon, so I started Our Town again (rumored to be done at Adelphi within the next two years) since I haven't read it in a while & I can finish it shortly if my others come. There's nothing I hate more than being in the middle of a book & not being able to finish cause you feel the need to start reading a book for homework or just something else you've wanted to read really badly. That's why I was so hesitant about starting The Da Vinci Code at the end of April... I thought finals would interfere.

I like this Virginia Woolf quote: Methinks the human method of expression by sound of tongue is very elementary, and ought to be substituted for some ingenious invention which should be able to give vent to at least six coherent sentences at once.
I don't know what it's from.

DoloresHaze: I might have to kill you now.
DoloresHaze: seriously though I miss you tons and I feel like I haven't seen you in like a year

It is highly unfortunate that I am PMSing the last few days here, aka the saddest days ever.

Apparently, West Newbry etc. is flooded fairly hardcore. Can comeone give me specific details on how they think roads will be by Friday? It's supposed to rain here until then, too. Depressing weather.

I can't even think about leaving in less than 3 weeks. Shiiiit! Everyone's talking about being so excited about going home or school being over, but I just don't want it to be. The only reason I'm looking forward to the summer is for The Wiz & knowing that on September 6th I will be in fucking LONDON. Seriously, if that thought can't motivate me to deal with my job at Shaw's I don't know what will.

I've had a really great two weeks or something. Lots of random, fun, silly, happy, entertaining, original, once in a lifetime moments.

I just can't deal with the fact that I won't be seeing a good 90% of my closest friends until January after I leave in two weeks. It's gonna be hard, a lot harder than last year because it's for such a longer time AND I'm so much closer to so many people now. But, the light at the end of the tunnel, if you will, is like superhugewickedawesomehuuuuuge so... yes. Plus, I think I'm in a better state of mind to go home than I was last summer. Let's just say 2004-2005 was uh, rough for me.

And now, a random quote.

it's a question of finding a new window
of opportunity
of always being ready
of always doing research
of committing yourself to
the rehearsal
the training
the practicing
for when that
one golden moment
shines

the only good thing about being wounded in the buttox... is the ice cream. [April 30, 2006 @ 9:10pm]

Comment on this entry and I will give you a letter. Write ten words beginning with that letter in your journal, including an explanation what the word means to you and why, and than pass out letters to those who want to play along. Michelle gave me "P"

Patrick - as in Wilson. No explanation necessary, right?

Paradise - I really like the word & the connotations that come with it. Plus, "Almost Paradise" was on a commercial today.

Playing By Heart - My favorite movie. Gillian Anderson, Jon Stewart, Jay Mohr, Dennis Quaid, Madeleine Stowe, Anthony Edwards, Angelina Jolie, Ryan Phillippe, Gena Rowlands, Sean Connery. "Talking about love is like dancing about architecture." Has many of my favorite quotes & people. I love the story, it's like an American Love Actually.

Purple - Please.

Pantomime - I doooon't like doing pantomime, it's one thing about theatre that I don't particularly enjoy very much.

Potato - is what you use to make french fries, duh. Idaho's also a cool name for a state.

Proof - My faaavorite play & my dreeeeam role [Catherine].

Panera - Their Greek salads are amazing. Great lemonade, too. Yummy bread. It's fantastic & wonderful & I'm glad I discovered it on Long Island!

Panaro - Huuuugh! My favorite Phantom (although I've only seen 2, & I really enjoyed the other one) & I love watching the Lestat videos on broadway.com even though I doubt I'm gonna actually see the show. I will enjoy the cast recording though.

Plum Island - One of my favorite places to hang out at home-- a beach. Nice at night, near a playground, chilly summer atmosphere at night, there's a lifeguard stand you can sit on and listen to the waves & stuff. I know the sun sets in the west but the entire sky turns such a nice color at sunset that even looking out at the east off the shore it's still sooo brilliant & wonderful. It's close to Newburyport so we can get ice cream & bring it there or go get ice cream & walk around the Boardwalk after... I really do love New England.


Anyway. It's May tomorrow. Hoooly crap. I don't want to say goodbye to people.
Forrest Gump is on. Brilliance. I finished The Da Vinci Code today, I cried a little bit. I can't wait to see Tom Hanks & Audrey Tautou. Gonna be fabulous.

"That's all I have to say about that."

If anyone's interested, me & my friend Katrina are seeing Hard Candy tonight at 7:15 at the City Cinemas on Houston St ( http://www.fandango.com/TheaterPage.aspx?mid=86248&location=10012&tid=AAECI ) if anyone would like to meet us there! Call my cell & let me know if you wanna join.

Also! On Monday, if you are not doing the Rent lotto for the anniversary or you lose & want something to do, hop on the LIRR & come to my school to see me in our Broadway Revue! It's not staged or anything, but we're seeing group numbers from Godspell, A New Brain, Rent, & I'm singing "Moments in the Woods" from Into the Woods & then "Follow Your Heart" from Urinetown with my friend Chris. There's gonna be a guitar there & stuff which we've never done at one of these things before. Also, Jeanne's doing a kickass version of "Out Tonight." It's free!!

IT IS SO BEAUTIFUL OUT. I'm gonna get ready then sit outside the theatre til my math class & enjoy the day.

Waiting for a download thing, so... I stole this from myspace.

80 Questions I Guarantee You've Never AnsweredCollapse )

Well, that was pointless.

I didn't mess up my lines tonight or anything, woooot. That's what I was worried about, since I obviously saved it til the last minute to memorize a 7 page monologue. But we cut it to 4.5 so it was alright. It's a cool group of people up there in Salem, NH, aaaaand I found the scene I want to direct next spring for directing class. It was presented tonight, one of the actors wrote it. Two guys, really funny, short & sweet.

Back to AU tomorrow, Happy Easter!

The "official" e-mail from Mr. G. I wish I had been around to hear it in person..

"Hello all.

Sorry for the group email but I have a large number of people to correspond to today. I wish I could have spoken to each of you in person but the reality of the situation made it impossible.

I am emailing you to let you know that I have accepted a tenure track job at Winthrop University as an assistant professor of theatre. I am going to be teaching theatre courses to those students interested in becoming theatre teachers themselves. I also will be directing, choreographing and teaching other courses as per the needs of the department (acting, musical theatre, etc).

This is exciting but bittersweet news. I am excited about our move to the Charlotte, North Carolina area (the university is located in Rock Hill, South Carolina which is twenty minutes south of Charlotte) but I will certainly miss all of the students, community members and parents that I love so dearly. Susan, Hannah, Rebecca, Doron and I are so grateful for the love and support you all have shown us over the years. It is quite difficult news to give and still harder for you to digest.

It is important to think about the future. It is my sincere hope to work together to find someone to take the Pentucket Theatre Department in a new and exciting direction. If anyone is interested in being a part of the process to help find a new teacher for the department, we need parents and students to assist with this. Please let Ellen Hart know at hart@prsd.org.

If you have questions, etc. please email me or come talk to me in person if you can. If you know someone who should get this email and didn't, please let me know and I will forward it on to them. Thanks for your understanding. There is no good way to share this information without it coming as a shock to people. Using email was not my first choice but with many so far away and with busy schedules, this turned out to be the most efficient route, but not the most sensitive one.

love,

Stephen Gundersheim (Mr. G)"

Wow. I'm uh... wow. That's absolutely wonderful for him, I'm so happy he found something more suited to what he's looking for at this point in his career, but... wow. I would be so upset if I was still there, Mr. G was a guiding force for most of high school for me, & I know for pretty much everyone else heavily involved. Yowza.


I'm uh, in a show on Saturday night? A night of one acts / monologues, kind of cabaret-ish but not really. It's $15 which blows BUT it's totally a fundraiser for Ghostlight Productions, they're located in Salem, NH & they're trying to get up off their feet a little more. So if you're interested, let me know.

workworkworkworkwork. MONEEEY. Therefore, I shan't complain.

This means that if I try to see Barefoot in the Park tomorrow & I don't get to the box office until like 7:35, I'll get tickets? Caroline hasn't seen it yet & it's a favorite of hers & hell, I want to see Patrick Wilson again. Not gonna lie. Maybe the show's, uh, improved since I saw the opening preview?

I'm playing Rent lotto tonight with a friend from school & I think Caitlin's playing too... so if any of you NYC ladies are around to help with that, that would be cooool.

I had a dream last night. I was somewhere that was representative of Adelphi, with all the theatre majors. There was one booth that looked like the booth in Post we always sit at before classes Mon-Thurs. For some reason I just started sobbing & Sam Adams was like what's wrong & I said that I suddenly realizes that there was one day left before I said goodbye to everyone until January. Now, reality, we don't have one day left, but it really kinda feels like that, since time seems to be going sooo fast & all the seniors are sooo busy & I feel like in some ways we're all falling apart a bit in terms of keeping relationships up. We're all to blame, but communication here blows now, & I feel that nothing's going to be the same, & that when I come back to Adelphi in January it's going to be so weird.

Anyway, just a thought. It's so gorgeous this morning, I couldn't sleep once I woke up.

This is sooo random, but does anyone have Beethovens 7th Symphony online that they could send me? We're doing a scene from Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf in class & they play that song in it, & my character has to hum & dance along to it, so I'm trying to figure out what it is. I can only find midi files & those are a bitch to listen to. Anyone?

I just saw the ad for Adam Pascal on Cold Case (which is AWESOME & y'all are gonna be hooked after next week) & it looks great. Remember to watch! He sings. So does Tracie, I hear.

That's it. Weird weekend.

I watched Bastard out of Caroline today, where Ron Eldard like abuses Jena Malone to no end... & it was weird having seen them in Doubt together. But Jena was like 8 in that movie. Ron's scary. But so excellent. Hence, the icon.

we're flying too fast, running to free
happy just to be in heartbreak
jumping too far, crashing the ledge
dancing on the edge of heartbreak
red velvet ropes around the door

nevertheless, here we are

So my right leg decided to crap out on me today? I can hardly walk!! What the fuck? I woke up, I was a little sore from the gym yesterday cause I did some new weight machine things I hadn't tried yet, but I could MOVE! Then I went to Nick's class & I did my scene with Joey then as I'm leaving & going down the stairs I get this awwwful pain in my leg! Not shin splints pain, either, but like, muscle closing in around my bone pain. Then it went away & I figured it was a cramp or charlie horse or something, but then it came back after dance & only goes away when I'm not moving, but then it hurts extra when I start to move again. It's so weird!

Anywho, we're watching Mary Poppins in the lounge tonight & stuffing our faces. It will be amazing.


OH! I also cut 8 inches of my hair. It's a little darker now, too, but it's more noticable in the light.

John Cullum (who I love on the Urinetown recording) was in a movie called 1776 in which one of my great-great-great-great-etc. uncles or grandfather is a character... nifty. All because I was looking at trivia on www.imdb.com for Reese Witherspoon. A relative of hers signed the Declaration of Independence & so did mine. I'm sort of becoming obsessed with Reese. After her Oscar speech I got sosooooo many "You are so her!" comments which made me happy. Maybe we can play sisters or something one day. Gillian Anderson can star in it, too, with Justin Kirk. And Mary Louise. And Don Cheadle. Johnny Depp, Patrick Wilson, Laura Linney. You know, the usual.

I am easily amused.

Last night I saw Joanne! And we saw a cabaret-esque performance at the Duplex on Christopher St. Sebastian sang some awesome songs, Stephanie J. Block sang an amazing Scott Alan song, Jeffrey Kuhm & Christopher Hanke are adooorable, the 3 songwriters are very promising based on what I heard/liked. I would like to go back to see another performance. I was sad Wayne Wiclcox wasn't there, though. It was fun & short & I got back to campus at 10:30 which is earlier than normal after doing something in the city.

Tonight: half off appetizers at Applebees with some people. I am SO craving boneless buffalo wings. I went to the gym for the first time in 5 days & i ran for 30 minutes, did the elliptical for 35 minutes, and did some weight machine things. It felt great. Obviously I have to defunct the purpose with eating lots of appetizers, but you know, you can only do so much until cheap non-campus food comes your way.

Zeljko Ivanek is on Cold Case next week!! Sunday at 8pm on CBS. Such a good show... Adam Pascal's on it soon, too. I never realized that it filmed in the NY area, but it must since they're both NYC-centric actors. Unless... well, you never know. But that would be cool.

Guys & Dolls was excellent, guys. I felt like a proud mother or something, once again. I could gush for a while, & I have work to do, so I'll leave it at that.
