Opening Night of Damn Yankees was this past Friday. *Gulp*
Yes, there were the typical opening night blunders, but overall I felt pretty pleased with what happened, especially considering where we were just 6 days beforehand. I would have loved another three weeks of rehearsal, but the schedule is set and you have to go with it.
Anyway, I feel like screaming, "They liked me! They really liked me!"
I found a review online this morning. Granted, the overall show review is not one I am particularly proud of, but I am proud of my individual performance review, and the fact that it was "surprising:"
"In a surprisingly stand-out performance was Larissa Villers as our nosy, investigative reporter Gloria Thorpe. This character has conviction, tenacity, sass, and skills. I never doubted her. She picked up the slack in the scenes she was in, and compensated for the other actors lack of conviction. I give Ms. Villers two thumbs,way up!"
Moments like this make all those hours of sweat and tears totally worth it! :-)
