What a fun and fabulous weekend!

Got to work on a photo shoot for Time Out on Friday, which was just difficult enough to be really interesting. "Rollin' Outta Here Naked" opened that evening and we KILLED it. Good sized "Opening Weekend" audiences both nights. I think everything went off really well - without a hitch, even with the last minute hiccups! I'm very happy and so proud of our cast for upping the ante this year.

The studio was full all weekend, with bachelorette & private parties, which meant we couldn't have fun that was too far away from the studio, for the most part, but we still found a little time to relax. In a couple weeks, I'm going to Montreal to see a friend's wedding and take a much needed vacation! Sigh! Can't wait!

Last night, I went to see a production of Don Giovanni, to support one of my singers and also do some research for the show I'm directing next - an opera called Forest Fantasies, which is produced by Lingerie Lyrique. (http://lingerielyrique.wordpress.com/) All of the acts are based on seasons and take place in the Forest.

I'm directing an act from Cendrillon and another from Cunning Little Vixen. Rose Freeman is directing the other two acts. It's a really stimulating project - my imagination has been working over-time, and I've got a bundle of playful ideas that are peeping out of the bushes at me.

Every day I count myself lucky that I make a living as an artist, and that expressing myself is one of the major perks (necessities, really!) of being one! I'm very grateful for the other artists who work with me, the clients who hire me, and the people who inspire me.

There's nothing I'd rather be doing!
