At present, I am sitting in my dressing room, preparing for tonight's preview of THE BACCHAE - the second one of the run. As I reflect on last night's first preview, exuberance and gratitude fill my cup. Part of me keeps asking myself, how did I manage to get to this point? Not from a place of self-deprecation, no; it just amazes me how things happen in such a way, even when I think I'm procrastinating or not doing "enough." The other, bigger part of me affirms, and so it is.
I remember when I first moved to New York, I was all about getting on Broadway; Broadway, Broadway, Broooadwaaay. A couple of years in, I resolved that it will happen when it will and that my focus should be more on doing work I can be proud of. It has served me quite well, because here I am, loving the very project I am working on, along with a dynamic and highly supportive cast, at a prestigious theater. Knowing that my commitment to the quality of the work has brought me this far, I can only be ready to embrace what is next to come. Until soon...
