The show was actually really on tonight, though. People hit their spots, the soloists sang better, and I was an even bigger ham than usual. Of course, this was because I was playing to the crowd, in which scarlettina, Nick, varina8, Mr. and Mrs. ironymaiden, kafulea, Dug, and shadowdaddy were cheering me on (hopefully - they might have been laughing at the show, too). It was great to have so much support in the audience - thanks, guys!
To keep energy levels up, I brought in a big spread of nice cheeses (chevre, fresh motz, havarti with basil), prosciutto, good crackers, gingersnaps, and cinnamon/sugar almonds - which was devoured as if by pirahnas before intermission was over. Yum! This earned me "goddess" status for the night, but of course my reward was having something I wanted to snack on in the middle of the show.
The Saturday call is even an hour earlier than last week - around 11:30, as we are taking pictures of act one. I suspect I will be very ready for my break on Sunday.
