Can I make a Wrist to Forehead Sunday Post? I am feeling like swooning on a handy chaise lounge, dramatically posed with the back of one wrist to my forehead. Of course I have no such chaise lounge available. What I do have is a dreadful case of Post Play Letdown. Yes, it can kick in thus soon after the end of the play.
Full disclosure: I am mostly feeling happy right now. I was in a play! And people liked it! It mostly went well. I remembered most of my lines. What more could I ask for?
I feel very relieved that I have no rehearsals to go to in the coming week. I feel strongly inclined to never put myself in the position of having to have to go to rehearsals ever again.
People who know anything at all about theatre people know this is a lot of hooey. Not have to go to rehearsal? That would mean I would never do any form of theatre again. That’s crazy talk!
In fact, after the performance as most of the cast enjoyed food and drink at Mangia Macrina’s Pizza in Little Falls, NY (just to sneak in a plug of s local business), the subject of murder mysteries came up. OK, I brought it up. But several people expressed interest.
And so it goes. One show ends, another one starts. How soon does it start? We shall see. As always, I hope you’ll stay tuned.
