We are happy to welcome guest celebrity blogger Montego Glover, a 2010 Tony nominee for her performance in Memphis. Glover, who has also been seen on Broadway in The Color Purple, will blog for Playbill.com all week; her second entry follows:
Today is Tuesday, first day of the work week, and it's already off to a marvelous start. My angel of a publicist, Lisa Goldberg, has just sent over my dress fitting schedule for this week. That's right! DRESS FITTINGS for the TONYs!!!! So exciting. I've got appointments with design houses and showrooms around the city so we can find a pretty pretty dress for me to wear! I love being a girl!!
I've done this before for opening night of Memphis and other events for the show, and the experience is just so refreshing. You have an appointment, the people in every house are so gracious, you can try on everything that catches your eye, and just when you think it can't get any better, there may be shoes and handbags to see! It's my own little version of that scene in "Sex & the City 1" when Carrie is trying on the gowns. I'll also probably do a good bit of picture taking in the pieces I really like and send them to Lisa on site so she can weigh in. In addition to being a fantastic publicist, she's also got a great eye. Fun fun fun.
Now I'll tell you many of my friends are asking me what I'm wearing. The answer is I don't know yet. I do know what I'm not wearing. Probably no black and nothing that doesn't flatter or fit properly. That sounds really simple, but these simple rules haven't failed me yet. Wish me luck this week.
In the meantime, Memphis curtain is at 7 PM tonight, and I need to continue to return all of the amazing voicemail messages I got on nomination day!
See ya soon!
