That's the thing about theatre

You never know when it's going to surprise you. Last night that happened for me and I was totally blown away by our production of Nice Work if You Can Get. I'd been watching and listening to everything going on about the show, mostly bad stuff, annoyed actors, even more annoyed stage techs and a decidedly grumpy director. None of that came out on stage last night. From the very opening, the cast grabbed you with their dancing skill and I felt an immediate empathy for the slightly soused young playboy, lucky in money, unlucky in love and his unlikely love interest, a young female bootlegger named Billy. The old favorites were perfect and our newcomers totally owned the stage. It was perfect from start to finish.

It's always a great joy when this happens and when it's my own theatre, it's even better. I'm so happy that they've put together such a great show and the audience proved it. We only had about 40 unsold seats last night and I'm sure the sales have been brisk online today. I'm also delighted and relieved that I don't have to go into work tonight.
