Herr Director told us tonight that he felt this show was ready for "off-Broadway." (this is NOT a Broadway type show so that is some HIGH praise!)
In my 30 some odd years as an actress, I have NEVER had a director tell me that I am doing work of that caliber. And I have to tell you – THAT FELT GREAT.
I have been VERY nervous about this show since we decided to do it almost 7 months ago. 7 months of "Am I Good Enough?" 7 months of "will anyone want to see it?" 7 months of "Should I get an understudy?"
And tonight, a man whose opinion I respect VERY much made me feel like a rock star.
He might have been blowing smoke up my tush (although he really isn't the type) but I don't care. I am on Cloud 9 and I don't care who knows it.
So take that all you doubters (self included)! Tonight Sami kicked the crap out of this show and there is NO going back from that.
