Jane also told the NOCCA kids about a lesson she learned when she was around their age. One time her mom was driving her to rehearsal for the Milliken Show, and there was traffic coming in from New Jersey. They finally got to rehearsal but Jane was five minutes late. She said that a man named "Tiny" (whom Jane said was HUGE) reprimanded her in no uncertain terms and told her that she should never, ever be late for anything. Jane said it was so effective (and traumatizing) that she is always on time for rehearsals, half hour, etc. I shall refrain from commenting on my own amazing reputation which involves many frantic text messages from people asking "Are you almost here!?!?!"
Right after Jane and I did our tech rehearsal, we filmed a promo for Disaster!. I sent Jane the Andrea Martin video and she came up with the concept for this one. So funny! It's most hilarious if you watch the Andrea Martin one first. Watch!
This week we start tech for Disaster!, but I'll still be able to do my "Chatterbox" on Thursday at 5 at Don't Tell Mama. The adorable Bobby Steggert from Big Fish is my guest and, speaking of Thursday, Unbroken Circle has a show that night at 7 PM! The final performance is Oct. 27 so get thee! Here's the page that has all the amazing review quotes and video clips.
Go enjoy the cool weather and peace out!
