Jolson and Company "Open"

Well what can I say. It has been the best 4 weeks of my career. I have loved every minute of the whole process. Ed Curtis, (the director) Donna Steele (costar) Chris Howell (costar) have been a dream to work with. Michael Harrison (the producer) has surrounded me with the best technicians possible. Lighting, sound, musicians, designers are all the best I have worked with. I cant believe we didn't have one angry word in 4 weeks. Just laughs. We are all on the same wave length as far as humour goes. Captain Cherub (Ed) had the line of the week. My memory for lines is not the best in the world (that's an understatement) anyway at the tech rehearsal I suggested taking my jacket off in a particular scene. Ed said "yes but don't you have enough to forget" clever. Also on the same subject. Chris asked if a line had been cut because he forgot it. Ed said no. Donna said if that was the case the show would be called .....AND COMPANY. I think I've managed to hold my own though. 
So we open officially on Tuesday. So lets see what the critics say. I'm not holding my breath though you can never know what makes a critic happy. The audiences have been amazing the first three shows. Standing up and screaming. What more can you ask for. Also business up here in Edinburgh is incredible. 
So, oh....must mention Holly, our DSM, I didn't mention her in my last blog and she was upset. Holly Holly Holly.
Jane flew up for the first three shows and loved them. She didn't know what to expect and was totally knocked out. So we are off and running. I have a lot to do to get my performance to where I want it to be, but I'm at a great starting point.
Ok I'll let you know how the tour goes.
