Sweater weather is upon us! I couldn’t be happier! Something about crunching leaves under your boots and wearing a cozy scarf while drinking warm apple cider makes me smile. Summer has been wonderful and I love the sunshine, but I’m ready to watch leaves turn red and drink/eat everything pumpkin!
Just a few updates for you guys:
In the theater world:
WAITRESS! How do I even begin to explain the beautiful piece of theater that is on its way to Broadway! I took a weekend trip up to Boston to go and see the out of town try out at Boston’s American Repertory Theater two weeks ago to see Waitress (based on the 2007 movie). WOW. Not only was the set perfectly created and incorporated to the show, but the cast. I can’t think of better people to be in this show! Jessie Muller is hands down one of the most talented actresses of our time. What a voice. She puts so much heart into her performance as Jenna. Kerala Settle and Jeanna De Waal also give extraordinary performances as Jenna’s coworkers and two friends. Drew Gehling a personal favorite actor of mine gives a hilarious as well as heartfelt performance as Dr. Pomatter. Each member of the cast gets their time to shine which I love.
The music for the show, written by Sara Bareilles is so beautiful. I can’t explain how gorgeous “She Used to Be Mine” is (the big pivotal song for Jenna the main character). The show is so well done and I can’t wait to see it again in March of 2016 when it makes its Broadway debut at the Brooks Atkinson Theater!
I have some new photos on the page. My youngest brother Timothy decided to restore our older brothers 1964 Harmony Rocket H4 as a surprise and gift for him. It took about a year of hard labor, putting in as many hours as he could daily to restore it back to its old beauty. He sanded down all of the old chipping paint, repaired cracks, and even rewired the electrics inside to make it sound amazing again. The piece came out beautifully and Lee (older brother) was shocked when he saw it! I am amazed by the two of them on a daily basis. Both have such intense music ability and can pick up anything and start playing it. Timothy is so creative and shows extreme dedication when starting a project. Timothy asked me to take some professional pictures of the finished product, so they are up on the photography page! Take a look!
So I said I was working on a short film, and I am finally ready to show it. I am my own biggest critic and I don’t think it’s perfect, but I like how it came out. I may go back to make some edits, but for now I will leave it alone. Go check it out on my film page and let me know what you think! ALL critiques are welcome!
Personally I have just been working and trying to fit as much as I can into my weekends. Commuting is definitely tough and tiring, but it will get easier I’m sure. Holidays are coming up so lots of baking to do! That cookbook is still in the works, but just taking some time to compile and edit recipes/match up pictures to each recipe. Hoping to see some sort of final product by next year! Hope all is well with you guys! Enjoy the end of summer and the beginning of Fall! I’ll be back to update soon!
