It's been fun to be in a show with my husband. In fact, this is the first time I've been in a show with my husband; we've done things together in the past, but we were only friends, back then.

He's still a cutie.

I don't have a lot of stage time in this show, but it's still been fun. I've become proficient at Plants vs. Zombies and caught up on a lot of reading. I also costumed this show as well, since I had so much spare time. When you're looking at the pics, you can tell me what you think of the clothes! There were several good shots the photographer took of Nolan and me, and I'm sure I'll link the slideshow when she gets it up, but here are some she texted me yesterday:

Our characters do a lot of fighting in this show. On more than one occasion, we've been driving home from rehearsal and one of us has remarked, "I'm glad we aren't these people." Ethan found us after the show last night and said, "Please don't ever fight like that in real life."

My character does a little attempt at seduction to get back at her husband.

I'm having this one framed and sticking it on the wall next to our wedding portrait.

The photographer dubbed this one, "Attack of the great hair."

If you don't know the script, this won't make any sense, but this is a cake that the director got for us. It's an ear that's had the lobe shot through.

Ew. It tasted good, though. The red was cherry pie filling. ;)

So it's been a good time, is what I'm saying. There have also been some challenges, big ones, but there always are, aren't there? I'd do it again, though. In a heartbeat.

*claps and bows low* You and Nolan totally rock. That's all.

PS: girl, I'd frame the hair toss pic too if I were you. You looks like a million pounds btw. ;)

No matter what you *think* you may weigh, you look utterly gorgeous.

Y'all look great!! And everyone's costumes look great. I love your dress, in particular. It's totally a Marilyn Monroe dress :D

Okay - so firstly - YOU look Hot! That is a super cute dress and you are looking awesome! Nextly - Nolan is a babe! You guys are the prettiest couple ever!

And it's SO SO sweet that the kids are able to recognize that you and Nolan are totally not the characters and would never fight like that in real life!

I'm SO thrilled that you got to do this together! I wish I could have seen it - When Bloody Ears are an in-joke it totally sounds like something up my alley. :)

Nolan IS a babe. He's very cute.

We aren't those characters. And we're so relieved.

The whole show focuses around a couple that are celebrating their anniversary - that the audience never sees. The husband has a gunshot wound through his earlobe and the wife is missing. The characters deal with the aftermath. Rumors abound. :)

Oh it sounds SO fun!! :)

Thanks, sister! Hope everything is going well at your house with your new little one!

We're getting there, I think. Not to say there aren't ginormous bumps, either, but I think we're doing okay on the kidlet front. It's calmed down quite a bit, and that definitely helps to promote parental sanity. ;)

And yes, Nolan is...more than a cutie. *nods* Yes, indeed. *g*

We have had fun!

Marriage is a lot of work, but the dividends are totally worth it!

I hope you get to keep that dress/that is your dress because you look HOT.

I love the idea of framing that one and putting it next to your wedding picture! Hilarious! :D

That is my dress. I found it for $50 a J.C. Penney's. (A sort of mid-priced bargain department store.) The problem is, though, once I've worn a dress for a costume (wherein you wear it a lot for the rehearsals and then for the run,) it loses that special something that makes you want to wear it again. I have so many dresses in my closet that I've worn in shows that just hang there and stare back at me. :(

Yes, but if it's been a while since a show, isn't it almost like new again?
Carrie Leigh: Extremely stubborn and suspicioucarrie_leigh on March 5th, 2012 01:02 am (UTC)
Maybe I'll try to convince myself. :)

I didn't know Nolan acted. You two look GREAT together. The costumes look fantastic too. But your red dress??? I hope you get to keep that. You look absolutely hot. Not to mention the hair toss. And Ethan's comment? Adorable, as usual. :D

*hugs* (b/c I can).
Carrie Leigh: We're actorscarrie_leigh on March 5th, 2012 01:01 am (UTC)
Nolan has the same degree that I do: a BFA in theatre performance. That's where we met. :)

And yep, that dress is mine.
