Last night was opening night! And the house was really full! And there were minimal problems! The audience cheered and laughed and the faces of the audience, from what I could see, were oh thorough enjoyment. A couple faces of friends made me laugh during my dances. We all had so much fun. Which is the whole point right?
My brain is starting to come out of the all-consuming fog of Planning A Show. It took me an hour to get out of bed this morning but as I was showering, I wasn't mentally making a show to-do list. I started thinking about the paper I need to write and the presentation I need to prepare. I picked out clothes instead of throwing something on to run out the door.
I still feel like there are a lot of cotton balls between my ears, just from exhaustion. My friend (and co-director) and Seana had her mom in town for the night to see the show. After, she took a few of us out for a late dinner, and it was lovely. I love moms. My mom is incredibly sad not to be around for the show, and she really liked someone's mom was around. Seana's mom gave me a big hug and a congratulations after the show, which made me feel good.
We did it. We really did it. I can't believe it.
