Welcome to March. We had a two-show day today, sellout crowds that were ready to have fun. It should have been cake.
One of our actors threw his back out this morning while brushing his teeth. Laugh if you will, but it’s true, and frankly that’s usually the way a spasm will work. You’re doing something simple and it just seizes up on you. So he was in a lot of pain.
Then, at the end of Act I, another of our actors made a faster than usual exit because he was getting nauseous. Between the two of them it looked like triage in the green room.
And this is the first act of the first show.
The impressive thing is that neither of the two audiences would have had any idea that there was a problem. These are two pros that played through. We were all ready for anything, but they both did their jobs amazingly well. I’m very proud of how everybody banded together.
So tomorrow we’ll have Saltines with an Icy Hot chaser!
