The company has been on the road for four months and we’ve traveled to over 80 cities! Being in this warm climate is like a vacation! Musical Theatre, a tan and a pay check? How lucky can a girl get?!
Driving from Riverside, CA to Tempe, I had fond memories of my first west coast experience. In 2005, I spent four glorious months at the Utah Shakespearean Festival in Cedar City, Utah. The scenic drive was reminiscent of reciting Shakespeare among the Red Rocks.
One of my favorite things about touring the country has been to reconnect with friends and family in each city. In Tempe, I look forward to exploring with Elyse, my college friend and native Arizonian.
It’s also so exciting to visit America’s college campuses and to feel the campus frenzy anew. When I was a 17 year old freshman at the University of Cincinnati, CCM, I saw the National Tour of Urinetown at the Aronoff Center. What luck that my tour played the Aronoff in February and that my life came full circle in this venue! Never in my naive freshman mind did it occur to me that I might be ON THAT STAGE one day.
I'm so grateful for this tour, for the Tempe sun, and the warmth of the Arizona audiences from April 6 through April 11th. See you at the show!
