Way back in olden times there was a production of Jesus Christ Superstar. I played both an apostle and a leper as well as various singing pieces of human scenery. One solo line I had to sing as a leper was, "Look at my tongue, I can hardly talk.", which is a pretty ridiculous lyric if you think about it. A man with a rotting tongue is probably going to sound like, "hnnth fmthurf nermble therp...", or just go with a sign. Still, I sang it the best I could and had a great summer sweating to death in the Wheel of Fortune ballroom. Good times.
I had an opportunity to act at Stage 212 during my last spring before I moved away. I even landed a lead on my first try. I played Susan in 2012's Don't Drink the Water. I can say I've never had more fun. There is a photo... somewhere.... of me during our rehearsal when I was first confronted with the best prop I've ever seen. Larry Kelsey on a copy of Time Magazine. I'm clearly cracking up and trying to remain in character. I can only hope someone still has that magazine.
