Last Thursday the coolest thing happened to me.
I stood on the stage at the Gershwin Theater.
I was in New York City for the SheStreams conference and on the first night, I got tickets to Wicked. I (along with three other fabulous women) sat in utter amazement as the cast performed. It was simply fantastic. Actually, fantastic doesn’t cut it.
Afterwards, we were all in for the treat of a lifetime. My friend Jamie knew a guy in the show and got us backstage afterwards for an up close and personal tour. In high school, I won the “Most Likely to Perform on Broadway” superlative and THIS…this was my moment. Sure, I didn’t burst into song. (The actress that played Glinda was inches from me and it was beyond intimidating.) But it was tempting.
Now maybe that excitement will help push me to actually audition for a local show….sometime in the next 10 years.
