To paraphrase Parker Posey from "Waiting for Guffman," "It's the week of the show, y'all!" That's right, Unbroken Circle starts previews on Wednesday. We have a contest to give away two tickets to the first day of previews so save money and go to facebook.com/UnbrokenCirclethePlay
I'm seeing the first performance at 2:30 PM then hightailing it to Tampa where I'm presenting the upcoming season at the Straz. Then I fly a little west of Florida to New Orleans and do a show with Megan Hilty! Get my whole (headache-y) schedule/buy tickets at SethTV.com.
Speaking of New Orleans, I got back and felt extra fat from the non-stop eating. I decided to go jogging but thought that if I did it outside instead of on a treadmill, I'd have a better workout. I didn't want to haul around my whole wallet, so I just took a credit card. I feel I have to carry something in case I get the urge to buy something and/or I pass out from exhaustion and someone has to identify me. Anyhoo, I kept my credit card in the same pocket that my phone was in. When I got home, I discovered the card was gone! Why? I decided it possibly had something to do with me taking my phone out to check the time. Essentially, every five minutes on the five minutes, I would think, "Surely, it's been 45 minutes and I can go home now." I'd check my phone and then angrily put it back in my pocket. On one of those many trips in and out of my pocket, my charge card must have joined in and never went back in. I was in denial for two days and refused to cancel my card. Surely, I'd get it back from a passerby. Crickets. Finally, I got a new card and went a full three days without losing anything else. Then on Friday, I showed up at Unbroken Circle rehearsal to do some videos. They came out so well! Everyone in the cast talks about why the show is special to them, and they all have a hilarious comment about their character. Watch the videos at UnbrokenCircleThePlay.com.
