Tonight, tonight, my show opens tonight!
That's why I haven't posted in forever. Again. I've been running around to practice every day for the last week. Tonight we find out if it was all worth it. Oh, anticipation!
All day, people have been telling me to "break a leg." You know the origin of that phrase? One theory is that, in Ancient Greece, audiences would stomp their legs on the ground in lieu of applause. Cast members would wager that if they performed well enough, someone would break a leg from stomping so vigorously. Thus, when they were wishing one another luck, they were actually telling each other to break someone else's leg, not their own! Nice, eh?
I doubt any audience member will break a leg on the carpeted floor of our arts center tonight, but if they do... I just might be responsible.
