Day 23: Proud Mama

The first performance of All in the Shuffle went beautifully tonight. I imagine it will be even better tomorrow, as the first performance in front of an audience changes the energy so much that it's always a bit of a shock. Tomorrow the actors will be able to relax into that new energy more.

It is always so interesting to witness an audience react to a piece (as either a performer or as a writer). To hear where they laugh, where they go completely still.... it isn't always what you expect. There were so many laughs tonight -- several that surprised me (in a good way). I can't wait to see how the audience reacts tomorrow.


  1. Natalie--

    It's a heck of reward, isn't it?

    Congrats and enjoy!


  2. Hey Ted -- Yes it is a heck of a reward! (sorry for the delayed reply). It's different from performing -- and in some ways more profound. I hope to have the opportunity to see one of my works performed on a larger scale soon. That would be incredible!
