My alarm goes off at 11:30 AM, which can only mean one thing: TWO-SHOW DAY!!
Exercise is essential when prepping for a double header. Mine comes in the form of Wii's "Dance on Broadway" game.

My scene partner, Mrs. Brill (Valerie Boyle), has taught me to always check my props before going on stage.
She also taught me that 90% of character acting is done with your eyelids. "Treat 'em like Olympic athletes, guv'nor!"
