Things work out for the best.

Opening night went well, Cecily and I actually got EXIT APPLAUSE (when an actor exits and the scene isn't over, yet the audience decides to interrupt it with applause for the leaving actors)!  It's rare, and it rocks, and it's been about 4 years since it's happened to me.  So yay for that.

Unfortunately, last night's performance and today's matinee were called due to weather.  Our town got 9 inches of snow dumped on it, and the theatre didn't think that the Box Office would cover the royalties.  So yuk.  I did go to the cast party on Friday night and had a fabulous time...  theatre people are NUTS!  But woke up yesterday with a horrible cold plus a scratchy throat that has now settled in my chest.  So, all in all, it's worked out for the best, I guess.  No one wants a stuffy Gwendolyn.  And my voice has dropped an octave, which makes me sound a little like Oscar, actually. :)

They've added a show on Wednesday, which means Tuesday will be a line through (horribly boring, as actors just vomit out lines as fast as they can without doing any interpretation or any of the movements ).  

I've already got a little cabin fever, and I'm sure I'll get dragged out to make a snowman at some point today...
