This time of year is simply insane for me and that is no exaggeration. With the festival right around the corner, scheduling for our summer concert series, TONS of theater stuff, and trying to have a LIFE outside of all that…it’s cuh-razy.
I’m definitely suffering a terrible case of I’m-not-good-enough-oh-my-Lord-when-will-I-ever-catch-up-my-life-is-so-overwhelming but luckily Jeff is the most amazing man in the world. He has gone above and beyond the call to make sure I’m taken care of. I have a moment about twice a week where I call him and ask him to tell me I’m good at my job. And he tells me I’m good at my job. And somehow I feel better.
We opened Almost Blue last night on the Alpha Stage at Renaissance; my first go-round as a producer. I was off work Friday, so we spent the day at the theater, cleaning and getting everything ready for it. The theater ended up looking totally gorgeous; Bob and the guys created a beautiful lobby area in the large room next to the theater. The crowd naturally gravitated to that area and I felt really good about the vibe. The show is intense and really REALLY good. Really.
Now that I’m writing all of this and looking at the past couple of weeks…I feel good. Not everyone has it as great as I do, and I really should be more appreciative.
So I will.
