Practically Perfect Two-Show Day with Kara Lindsay at Mary Poppins
Started off this two show Mary Poppins day with a delicious iced coffee from Lucettegrace and a peanut butter and jelly macaroon...WHAT?! Mind. Blown.
These two lovely gals share in my coffee addiction and were the best brunch pals. Hope Michelson (Kathy Fitzgerald's wonderful daughter) and Kelly Bolick (our Dance Captain extraordinaire).
We decided to go to a nearby cafe called Morning Times. We thought it'd be adult of us to get a proper breakfast, other than just sweets. We also got MORE coffee. 6 coffees for 3 chicks. Yes, we have a problem.
Kelly is VERY adult with her breakfast. Sriracha art:)
Mary Poppins was a quick one week run, so we all did opening night celebrations/ gifts and closing night celebrations/ gifts in the same week. There's lots of love in this company! This eyelash dish from Kelly is one of my favorite gifts EVER. A fancy place to put your fake lashes instead of the yucky plastic thing they come in? Girls, you should get one!
Cast member, Leilani Carr, is a gal of many talents. Some lovely art work that she let me have:) Also, my sunglasses are still on because its really sunny indoors? I don't know.
Andre Cerullo, our associate MD, stopped by every day with some 'Neleus News' to post on my door. These were hilarious! Neleus is mentioned quite a bit in Mary Poppins so the music department decided to get super dramaturgical and provide us all with a new tidbit for each show. Y'all should look up some Neleus facts. Fascinatingly messed up stuff there.
Getting my wig on at the 5 min call and getting a visit from these lovely gals! Lydia Tart and Elise Dwenger ready for the first Act!
I'd forget to bring my hat to the wig call on multiple occasions...probably all 8 times we did the show...so Lisa Acevedo, our hair supervisor, would have to run back to my dressing room to put it on my head before rushing onstage. Ooops. Brittnye Batchelor designed all of these beautiful wigs for us!
A visit from THE Lisa Brescia and THE Granny (Kathy Fitzgerald)! Mrs. Banks and Mrs. Brill giving you some model behavior.
