Where to start . . .
My biggest news is, a week from Monday I'll be back home (yeah!!!). I am switching from Jersey Boys first national tour, to the second national tour. This means I get to be home for five glorious weeks while I rehearse with the second company. I can't WAIT!!! I'm beyond thrilled to sleep in my own bed and see (hopefully) spring come into ole New York.
Last weekend my mom came to visit me. We did a lot of sightseeing. That was fun for me, since I mostly knit, watch TV, and do the show. That's it. On Monday we took a sightseeing bus and it was a FAB 80 degree day. Here are a few random tourist pics:
(China Town Gate)
At Telegraph Hill near the stairs to Coit Tower there was this house with these kind of cool statues on it's balcony
(Houses on Alamo Square)
I've also started a sweater of my own design. I'm loosely basing it on a sweater from the pattern a day calendar, but it's mostly my first design. I had an idea of mixing cotton tightly knit for the body, with a lacy mohair top and sleeves. I'll post some pics in progress.
Last big news is, set your TIVO & VCR's for this Monday night's Tonight Show. The first national cast of Jersey Boys will be making their network television debut. We fly to L.A. Sunday night after the show, arrive at the studio on Monday morning for spacing rehearsal, then camera rehearsal, then into costume and make up, tape the show, wash our faces, and back on a plane home.
Tell ya all about it later.
