More dreams last night. Pretty sure the older guy I've been seeing is abusive. So that's fun.

In happier news it's almost Memorial Day weekend! Anyone have fun plans?

It was too good to hope I'd had the last of these Dreams.

[Marguerite]

It happened again. Similar Dream but different about us being orphaned in pre-Revolution France. No neat stuff this time, though.

In my dreams, there's a place called Ahtohallan. It's a river of memories, but frozen. A glacier. It's where the voice that is calling to me is.

In order to get there I had to cross a storm swept sea, which meant fighting the spirit of water. A water horse that nearly drowned me. But I tamed it, and arrived in Ahtohallan and then something inside me shifted. Changed.

Inside the glacier were memories. Mine. My sister's. My family's. Somewhere in these memories is the answer to what happened to my kingdom and the forest and why the spirits are angry.

But that voice? Was my mother telling me the person I was looking for all along was me.

Well, it appears I've been adopted by an Ewok. Cute, bit skittish. But he followed me to Pimpernel Outreach and the kids seem to love him. I'm not entirely sure he understands the story that's being read for story time, but he still seems quite taken with it all the same.

Misadventures in trying to make breakfast....

The smoke detector going off while pre-heating the oven. And then trying to make whipped coffee without an electric hand whisk.

Good times, good times. Well, I know how I'm probably spending the weekend now.

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.

Woke up this morning to find my prom dress, from the dreams, hanging on the back of my closet door. I'm not really sure what I'm supposed to do with it since it's clearly a prom dress and clearly from ten years ago. Has anyone else gotten clothes from their dreams that they just can't wear? What have you done with them?

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 :)

Now that it’s official I can announce - I’ve got another movie in the works! It’s not a sequel to my last one exactly but it is going to be in that same universe, so if you wanted to know what happened to some of the characters….this could be your chance to find out. And since it’s not a direct sequel if you haven’t seen the other one don’t worry. It’s going to stand alone.

Previews this past weekend were a success, and our official opening is tomorrow night.

Though I must say, after seeing some of the changes that have been made to the Broadway run of Six, I'm happy that we're able to keep the aspects that make Six unique. I understand Broadway and Equity issues but still. Ah well, c'est la vie.

Well, joke's on Skeeter. Makaila and I get along wonderfully.

Speaking of Six though... Two weeks until previews (February 27 through March 1) and then our official opening on March 3rd through the 29th!

Why couldn't I have attended a law school with a three-year program instead of a four-year program? I need a break. Just a few more months, then the bar exam. I just have to keep reminding myself that I'm almost done.

Anyone else feeling this way about school? Please tell me I'm not alone here.

[Marguerite & Percy]

Any chance we could do something this weekend that has nothing to do with law school or Pimpernel Outreach?

I was told that this place was good for networking and socializing. I intended to see about potential job connections, but there seems to be quite some talk about dreams here. Though this is the internet, I suppose oversharing and such things are to be expected.

I do love coming home to casting emails. Gold star for Cathy Parr!

It seems the only person involved that I have no knowledge of outside of our meeting at call backs is our Aragon actress, but that's part of the fun, getting to know new people. What will be interesting and new though will be seeing how the script works out as it seems there are essentially four (well five but there's no access to the Broadway revisions) main scripts for Six and we'll just read through each one in the next two days and the final script with be Frankensteined from that based on the principle cast and what fits each of us best.

Taking the unexpected nature of live theatre where anything can happen to new levels.

Double show day and a week left for Bonnie & Clyde, but that doesn't mean I haven't been thinking of the next thing. Which has now been set.

So, the next show being done at [theatre company] will be the musical Six. Auditions will be January 4-5, call backs January 11-12, and the show will run for the month of March for International Women's Month.

Since it's the time of year to make changes I thought I'd go ahead and make one that I'd been thinking about off and on for the past year. I don't have any projects going on right now - although I do have one or two that I'm in talks for so wish me luck - so there was no reason not to just take the chance. And if I decide I don't like it? The color will fade out in a few months or I can get it dyed a different color.

A play in three acts.

Scene: Rehearsal room in October
Me: You'll want to make sure you have snow appropriate jackets for December
Jeremy: What? This is Southern California, that's ridiculous
Me: We'll see.


Scene: Backstage, day after Thanksgiving
Jeremy: So the snow in LA County, was that what you were talking about?
Me: Well, Palmdale and Lancaster were unexpected though I believe it snowed there eight years ago. But no, not what I was talking about.

Cue yesterday backstage
Jeremy: Okay, I get it.
Me: =D


Anyway, we have three weeks left of Bonnie & Clyde so if you're interested and haven't seen it yet (or wish to see it again), there are still tickets available.

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.

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.

My husband is in my dreams now, I woke up ready to scream at him, but I forgot he's out on the boat.

In my dream he was such a smug bastard, but kinda charming. He annoyed me greatly and was doing it on purpose! Maybe it's a good thing he's out on the boat, it stops me from making an ass out of myself for yelling at him for something he hadn't done.

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.

Now that Roman and I have finally moved into our house, I never want to move again. Moving is such a fucking hassle and I've done it three times in the last two years. It's not happening again. Not only that, but I love this house. It's possibly the nicest house I've ever lived in.

Once we're completely settled in we're going to have a house warming party, which I'm very much looking forward to.

One of my favorite things about this house is how bright it is. It's perfect for selfies.

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.

No wallowing. No wallowing. I'm not going to. It's not what he'd have wanted. For any of us to do. I just have to act like everything's okay right now. I just have to...act. Keep August 2nd clear if you want to see Rock of Ages on opening night at [Theater Name]! We'll be running through mid-October so if you don't get a ticket for our opening weekend you'll have plenty of time to come and see the show!

[Private to Marguerite Blakeney]

I really can't thank you enough for all of your help in putting me in touch with your choreographer friend. Working with her made it so much more comfortable for me and easier to learn the routine and the suggestions she made really improved it so I honestly can't wait until opening night to see how everybody responds to it. Mostly that creep though if I'm being completely honest.

[Private to Minako and Logan]

I already arranged for tickets to be held for both of you and Daddy they'll be waiting at the box office whichever night you want to come.

No. Absolutely not. I refuse to spend anymore time than absolutely necessary with the Rock of Ages choreographer. I signed on to play Sherrie in the show not to have someone trying to grope me while "correcting my position for the move." I get that it's easier to do it by moving me physically but if my hips aren't right - there is absolutely no reason for your hands to be on my boobs. And there is never a reason for you to be practically cupping them.

And now I'm supposed to agree to "private sessions" to get the number that Sherrie does at the club perfect? No that's not happening. In fact if I can find a way to - I'll find someone else to help me get more relaxed and less wooden when dancing on a pole. And if I can't find anyone else? I'll bribe someone to come to the sessions with me if I have to. Even if they're just going to be sitting off to the side watching.

There are definitely times when I am relieved I'm not on social media like Twitter all that much and that I'm not a well known theatre name outside of Orange County. Because the entitlement you see in people is absurd. Yes, I understand the planning it can take to get to New York to see a show on Broadway. Yes, I understand wanting to see a performer you really like or that 'big name' and finding out they aren't performing that day can be disappointing. But that gives you no right to then harass them on Twitter for daring not to be at the performance. Actors are people, and this is live theatre, which means that life happens and you are not entitled to an explanation of illness or family emergency. Get a refund if you're that annoyed (even if that's ridiculous as well because of the very nature of theatre and it's not just one person and you never know who you might discover in an understudy) but don't attack people on Twitter or social media and expect not to get called out.

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.

Well, it appears that even when I am not in Orange County, if I am supposed to go see a show I've already performed in, I somehow get pulled into actually performing instead.

Why yes, Armand, Percy and I did go to New York this past weekend for the one night only concert-staged reading of The Scarlet Pimpernel. And yes, I did end up having to fill in for the role of myself. Which was certainly something given the minor differences and then new songs involved. Thank goodness the nature of the production allowed me a script if necessary. Though I do feel I was more off book than both Tony Yazbeck and Norm Lewis at the end of the day, even with the minor changes.

Still, now I get to focus on this weekend's performances for Leading Ladies of Orange County, as well as rehearsals for Jesus Christ Superstar which are underway for previews the last weekend of March and running through April.
