A little while ago, Evie, Jacob, Chrissy and I went to Discovery Gateway to see the Sesame Street Presents the Body exhibit. This is Jacob trying to figure out why Oscar the Grouch won't come out of his trash can.
We are almost ready to open our show, Big River. I feel very good about where it is, both as an actress in the show and as a member of the production staff. We are ready. It will be a fine piece of theater, and I hope you all come and see it! The best part is, we survived the process!
Josh's set is really amazing, carved trees from huge blocks of foam. It feels like you're on a ride in Disneyland when you first sit down...all the detail and atmosphere. I continually amazed and impressed at his talents.
This would all be so enjoyable if I weren't in such stinkin' pain from the dang muscousitis (inflammation of all the mucous membranes in my body) caused by chemo. I keep popping IB800's and gargling with Magic Mouthwash trying to ignore it. It helps to be busy focusing on the show and not laying around thinking "ouch" all the time. I am very hungry though and eating is torture. Guess I'm on a new diet, after all.
