And on this, the 231st anniversary of storming the Bastille... my stage husband reaches out to me about a tribute cabaret to Frank Wildhorn and how isn't it such a coincidence that my brother, husband, and I all share names with someone from The Scarlet Pimpernel, which of course will be on the set list?

I mean don't get me wrong, I've loved the Frank Wildhorn shows I've been in and of course agreed. But he just had to make a comment on the names. Though there is no one better to sing the role of myself, especially as I've done so twice now. And of course Percy thinks this is hilarious.

It's been awhile but I guess my dreams are back. There was some weird obsession with this necklace from one of my best friends and also the asshole older guy I was seeing. But thankfully that relationship is over and I seem to be moving on. Maybe my dreams will start getting better now.

In other news I have decided to hire an assistant for Picture Perfect Events. If anyone is interested let me know!

So.... is there any sort of consensus or whatever on how similar the Dreams mirror your lives? Obviously not like magic or the time period or anything like that since that seems something only here. But....events or dynamics or something?

Also...can you have a nightmare in a Dream? Is that a thing? Like you wake up from a nightmare but you're still in the Dream that people talk about on here? Also why is part of my hair white?

Hope everyone is having a happy and safe Fourth of July. Currently just hanging out in the backyard and having a BBQ, which is definitely nice and relaxing.

Morning started out weird with some more dreams of living in Roswell, New Mexico and gotta say dreaming about how weird high school was isn't exactly my ideal way to start up a Saturday/Holiday. Although doing an interpretive dance to protest Sarah Palin during homecoming senior year definitely feels patriotic. But at least it's now July and I'm excited to get started figuring out what to do my birthday!

Super weird weather, right? I mean, okay, getting re-routed to LAX because of fog is one thing. Not even being able to get past the county line for like two and a half days? That was new. I've seen bad marine layers but that was something else entirely!

Oh. Right.

Hi! I'm Anna. Maybe I should have led with that? But maybe not because really, what was that weather?

I totally get that June weddings are a thing, but holy crap am I up to my eyeballs in wedding cakes right now.

I've had my employees start telling people we're not taking anymore requests because they are non-stop. Maybe I should work on getting the machine message to say something about it, but I'm pretty sure 90% of people don't actually listen.

Oh well, at least the first round of weddings are this weekend and then it'll be smooth sailing.

The new Lady Gaga album, Chromatica, is GREAT! I had way too much fun listening to it a couple times while in the back room helping my mom sort things for the shop. It really makes me want to get out to the club and start dancing. I'm just excited about her getting back to dancefloor pop music.

I've finally had one of those dreams that you all seem to be so keen on. I've seen so many of you talk about how your dreamselves are nothing like how you are in real life, so I was a little worried.

But in my dream, I purchased an ancient, abandoned castle in Scotland and had it shipped to America so I could build it on top of the tallest skyscraper in New York. My dreamself has pizazz. I think I'm going to enjoy these.

I didn't leave my house all weekend and I kind of hate myself for it.

I got one of this stupid Diamond Dotz paintings, which is basically a paint by number but instead of actual paint you put these little colored "gems" on it and it makes it a shiny 3D type painting.

I got totally sucked in. It was terrible, but I'm almost done with it now, but I'm not letting myself touch it until the week is over in case I get sucked into a black hole again.

And it looks like I have my next two shows lined up.

LA Fleet Week (September 4th through 7th), we will be bringing back a full production of Bandstand! And then after that, it's rehearsals for the US Premiere of & Juliet, which we will be opening in November.

A bit of a longer lull between shows then I'm used to, but such is life.

I wanted to more than just have a barbecue to commemorate those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. I did some looking online at different ceremonies and decided to attend one. It was really interesting to watch the wreath laying, the rifle salute, and listen to one of the local high school bands. Not gonna lie, listening to Taps always makes me tear up a little bit.

Hope everyone has a safe holiday. Don't drink too much and forget to put sunscreen on.

I’m starting to have second thoughts about the fact that I used some of those lemons I got off that tree in the pies I made that afternoon and gave to my neighbors. Apparently fruit from my dreams can affect people who eat it in weird ways. Especially if they came out of dreams there like the tree did...Nothing weird seems to have happened to any of my neighbors they’re all looking and acting the same as far as I can tell but...I don’t know any of them well enough to actually tell if it’s changed them. This is all so confusing…I did learn that the animals there aren’t immune to it since I told Cheshire there that if he ever ate something that made him bigger I’d just use him to draw my carriage. He didn’t seem to find it very funny but I did. It would be a pretty funny thing to see though wouldn’t it? A cat drawn carriage.

When I woke up something had knocked over my bubble bath and there were little paw prints tracking through it and throughout the apartment but I didn’t see any cat or other animal in my place so...maybe they just showed up from the Dreams since I dreamt of Cheshire Cat again?

Hey everyone, my name is Peeta and I'm new to the network. I'm a veteran and owner of a couple of bakeries called Mellarky. We make breads, pastries, cookies, cakes, pies, tortes, etc - I'm currently testing out bagels and doughnuts so hopefully that will get added to the menu soon. My main bakery is located in Santa Ana and I have a smaller satellite bakery in Anaheim near Disneyland that does mainly sweets and some bread.

So, let me ask you fine people - what's your favorite bakery item? This is a purely selfish question because I'm always looking to add new things to my menu.

So according to the manager on the construction job all of my renovations should be done by the end of this month! Which means that I’ll actually be able to start moving in the furniture and getting ready for Pink’s Treats to actually open! Right now I’m shooting to open the physical location in middle of June but just a reminder for all of you with graduates or June brides in your life - I am taking small orders to make at home and deliver to you!

[Caroline and Izzy]
It would be a really bad idea for me to go ahead and buy the furniture to put into a storage unit right now wouldn’t it? I found the tables and all that I want and they’re on sale right now for less than I’d budgeted but I’d have to rent storage and from where I’ve looked that would eat up most of what I’d save.

When I left California ten years ago, I went as far as I could get with the thought to never look back. I started a new life in New York, and it was a good life. It's my life, you know?

I never intended to come back to California. But now that I'm here, I'm thinking about staying. Why the hell would I do that? My childhood was miserable, there's so few good memories here for me.

I came back for my mother's funeral. I didn't come back to stay. But there's something...holding me here. I can't rally explain it even though I feel it. It's like I've already forgotten my life in New York.

So, yeah. Hi. I'm Alex. And I'm staying.

Made it back home. If I can even call here home anymore. New York sort of became my home these past few years. But right point is I made it back to Orange County. What a time to return.

Since I can't really go anywhere social media is probably the best way for me to reconnect and meet people here.

I'm Caroline. I'm an event planner whenever that's needed again. I love shopping, the beach, getting my nails done - pretty much all things I can't do right now. So please keep me entertained :)

As...interesting as that was, I'm certainly glad to be myself again. Especially with tech week starting today. That would have been hard to explain. Though I'm fairly certain that "Don't schedule rehearsals on or around Halloween" is in the unofficial putting on a production while in Orange County handbook at this point.

C'est la vie. Onwards to tech, then previews running the 12 through 14th with the official opening for Bonnie & Clyde the 15th and running through December 29th.

So, not only did I seemingly miss the entire month of October, and thus Halloween. But then I come back to the area and it would appear as though my business partner for Pimpernel Outreach, his wife and I think his brother in law all seem to think they're from Australia in the 1920s and are busy solving a murder mystery because....of course they are.

This year I’m ahead of the game I think! I’ve already figured out my and Kurt’s Halloween costumes for this year instead of scrambling at the last minute to figure it out and just pulling out my old cheerleader uniform like I did last year. No I’m going as a witch and taking advantage of his walking stroller to get out of trying to figure out how to carry him and the bags. He’s still not a 100% steady on his feet yet so this way it’ll be safe and good practice for him and I can use felt and fabric and fabric paint to make it look like he’s in a cauldron being turned into baby stew.

I must say, it's always rather interesting to see what Dreams end up on repeats when they aren't the ones that feel like they have a strong meaning or that could be counted as a 'major moment'. Instead it's the random interactions with people in the streets, buying an apple from Louise Audu and talk of marching on Versailles or the Bastille, going to salons put on by Sophie de Condorcet or with Olympe de Gouges or reading L'Ami du peuple and Robespierre's previous speaking out against capital punishment.

Such is life though.

A week into rehearsals for Bonnie & Clyde and I can already tell that it will be amazing, which of course it will. It's been a little over eight years since I was last in this show but it's as if it was only yesterday in that regard.

To everyone who came to either concert this weekend, thank you.

And as the concert is now done, along with the hints, I can officially say what show auditions are for next weekend. But first, the hints as filmed by my brother.

cut to spare the friends list, visible to all )

Yes, that is Jeremy Jordan who showed up. Yes we are going to be doing Bonnie & Clyde this winter. (And yes, Armand is clearly quite excited about this fact).

So again, auditions are next weekend (the 21st and 22nd) with call backs the following weekend (the 28th and 29th) at [theatre]. Then the show itself will run from mid November through the end of December.

I hadn't had any new dreams for months before Caroline and I went to New York earlier this month, and now I've had two since I came back. It's almost like the County is punishing me for going on vacation.


I'm really not loving these new ones, by the way. I might have started off like an asshole in the first set and in real life, but at least I tried to get better. But in my new dreams, the person I became better for is almost as terrible as I am. So much for trying to improve myself, I guess.

Something that never gets old when performing onstage is the reactions from the audience. Even when we begin the show by stating it's a sad song and tragedy, by the time we get to the end, there are always gasps and murmurs of 'no'. I'm fairly certain Brian has had to hand his kerchief to someone in the front row at least every other performance so far.

I guess I should probably at least make the attempt to get to know new people, so here I am, on some web forum I've never heard of in my life even if the internet tells me it's the best place to connect with locals.

I'm Peter Parker, coming all the way from New York. I'm a photographer and I... don't really know what else to say. So I guess I'll just leave you with a random fact:

Did you know that beavers, those furry Canadian mascots, mate for life? Can you imagine? Meeting someone, building a dam together, and then just growing old enjoying one another's company until you die together at the ripe old age of 15? It's beautiful, isn't it?

The role of Hermes? Brian Stokes Mitchell
The role of Persephone? Heather Headley

Alright, so I’m thinking that there has to be something to that whole phone addiction thing that people keep throwing around. I had the weirdest dream last night, and considering some of the other dreams I’ve had since moving here that is definitely saying something. But this one - was all about my phone. I was sitting in some doctor’s office looking room, just scrolling through some website on my phone when this random redhead woman comes stomping over to me, snatches it from me, throws it to the floor, and stomps on it. Breaking it in half. And that was when I woke myself up crying. Over my phone being broken in a dream. I would give it to my new assistant to hold onto but… how would I text my boyfriend randomly to spice up his work day?

Just a reminder that next week is Orange County Miscast, where a bunch of different actors and actresses from the community will put on a show where we all perform songs and roles we would never actually be cast as - a lot of us currently in productions have chosen songs from the show we're involved in as added incentive.

And on that particular note, with Jesus Christ Superstar having it's preview weekend at the end of the month, I can now announce that Anthony Head, probably best known for his role as Giles on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, will be performing the role of Pontius Pilate.

I have a lot of questions about the dream I had last night. Like why I let D pretend I was his boyfriend why, when deciding to research how to defend against vampires, my first choice was to crack open a Playgirl magazine. And why Playgirl actually had answers. And what the hell is D And why my dreams decided I needed to have said magazine and a photo of D's grandpa. Who, coincidentally, looks exactly like D, except wearing normal clothes. It's downright creepy. That's definitely going in the bottom of the sock drawer.

We’re heading into my favorite time of year - Halloween. These are the best parties to plan, and since I stick around during them to make sure everything goes smoothly I get to wear some of the most fabulous costumes thanks to my amazing roommate.

[Margo]
Speaking of my amazing roommate - think I can steal you away from your boyfriend to go costume shopping? There have to be one or two new ones on the market Bambi.

[Felix and Caroline]
So the thought occurred to me that with Halloween coming up and all the insanity lately - everybody could probably use some fun. And the three of us are the best at making fun happen right? So what do you say we work together to make something unforgettable happen partywise?

While waking up to flowers is always a nice thing, the fact that these were the signal for me to get out and to safety. Of course it's when I'm supposed to meet Chauvelin and he's caught on. Either way, it seems that the Dauphin has been found and we are taking currently care of him back in England, so things did work out despite the typical things getting messy for a moment. I suppose now it's waiting to see what the next adventure will be.

Though a break would be nice as we're getting into crunch time with rehearsals as we open in less than a month, and thus start tech and dress rehearsals soon.
