HOOOLLLDDDDDD THE FUCKING PHONE.
Riki Lindhome, half of the musical comedy duo ‘Garfunkel and Oates’, one of my favorite ladies on the planet, will be playing CONRADE in Joss Whedon’s MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING.
I am gasping for air.
for it so falls out/That what we have we prize not to the worth/Whiles we enjoy it, but being lack’d and lost,/Why, then we rack the value, then we find/The virtue that possession would not show us/Whiles it was ours.
So, pretty much I’m completely overwhelmed. I have so much to do within the next week + some days. My sights are set on October 25th. Preceptor day. I plan on laying in bed all day and just having rehearsal at night.
Right now I need to; Choreograph three more group numbers for Broadway in the Box. Go to the library to find a painting. Use that painting to make a color plate. Makes two costumes designs on Romeo and Juliet from this color palette. Write a critique of Much Ado. Study for a test on IPA. Do a ridiculous design thing for Graphic Methods. Plus do four more performances of Much Ado, four rehearsals for Broadway in the Box, one performance of Broadway in the Box, six rehearsals for Dancing at Lughnasa, some brunch thing for Much Ado(?), and hope to see my aunt who is up here from North Carolina for the first time in over a year next weekend. All the next eleven days. Including today. And I think I’m forgetting something.
So this post is really whiny and annoying right now, but the point of it is to say that my priority out of all of these things are the performances of Much Ado. I wish I could care about nothing but this show. Last night I remembered that Beatrice is my dream role, and I could not be happier to be playing her. Especially with the cast I have, especially with the direction I’m under. I am so sad, because I cannot bear for this to be over. I love everything about being Beatrice and being in this show too much.
This is a role that already was and will be a part of me forever.
Sorry for the long, sappy, ranty post. But I don’t do it often, and I think it’s justified right now.
