It had been 17 months and 1 day since the last time we had our work performed in person for an audience, but being back onstage at Don’t Tell Mama on July 23 felt like no time had passed at all!
It had all the elements of live performances that I’d been missing (and some that I’d happily forgotten) – the joy of the rehearsal process, the thrill of hearing new material, the stress of a time crunch, the warmth of a great audience, and the bonds of collaboration. We became a momentarily magnificent six as Jeanna wasn’t able to perform with us, but I wouldn’t have changed a thing!
Thanks to the crew of our favorites – Alex, Allison, Ally, Amy, Ellen, Jeanna, Lynne, MinJi, Roslyn, Sam & Tori – for donning the warmup jackets and bringing it all back to life.
Thanks to all who watched – both in person and online (especially those that braved the technical difficulties!) If you didn’t get to see it, or if you want to watch it again, check out the video below. (And read a nice little write up about the concert on BroadwayWorld here!)
