"All ve heard vas yodeling"

It's preview night, and I'm gonna try this live blog thing again.

7:35 p.m. - Pep talk (and some notes) from our director, choreograper and stage manager backstage.

7:49 p.m. - An odd "calm before the storm" has fallen over the dressing room.

8:02 p.m. - Curtain speech, overture and "Opening Night" (the butterflies in my stomach have begun).

8:22 p.m. - Leo is hysterical. Audience is laughing (whew)!

8:35 p.m. - A bevy of beautiful showgirls just passed by on the way to the stage for "I Wanna Be a Producer." Roger, Carmen and I pace backstage.

8:55 p.m. - Roger (Buddy) makes his entrance. Time to "Keep it Gay"!

9:25 p.m. - Sweaty, exhausted, Intermission. Wait...we still have to do Act II!
