Coming home to some great news & photos of my trip!  
Just got confirmation from Kevin that he has been cast in "Sleeping Beauty Wakes" at the Kirk Douglas Theatre this spring!! It's a joint production with Center Theatre Group and Deaf West Theatre - and like "Big River" will incorporate hearing as well as deaf actors. It's being directed by Jeff Calhoun - who also directed "Big River" a few years ago. I'm very excited and have already made plans to fly out to LA to see it in late April (I'll be there from April 26th - 30th) My question to all of you is - anyone interested in seeing this show with me that weekend? :)

I've also been spending time installing programs on my new laptop (which is sadly why I haven't been around since I've been home) and the good news is that since I've installed Photoshop, I'm able to FINALLY post some pictures of my weekend. :) If you're interested, they're under the cut - but I warn you, there are some pretty silly food pictures as well - what's a vacation with silly food pictures? ;)

Got to meet the incredibly talented Jason Robert Brown - who wrote 13
as well as a few of my other favorite shows - including, Last 5 Years and Parade. :)

It was wonderful to see Carrie at the wedding!! :)

We all had a wonderful time at Stacey's wedding. :)

I just love my handsome hubby!!

The best part of the wedding was getting to finally meet Stacey!
She looked so beautiful in her wedding dress!

Of course, no travel photos would be complete without the requisite silly food photo! ;)
We LOVE Red Robin!!

I'm just in love with the salad bar at Sweet Tomatoes!! :)

Mark was a little disappointed that the cornbread at Sweet Tomatoes had real corn in it! :D

Sorry, no pictures at the Wonderettes... Sometimes it feels a little too "fangirl" to pull out my camera and start asking for photos - especially when they were all being such great friends... Next time I'll be sure to get some. :)

Aside from the theatre stuff, work has been VERY busy since my return - yesterday I woke up early to fly out to Kauai with my BIG boss to do a branch manager meeting and last night I attended a dinner with one of my reps and a wholesaler at the Honolulu Country Club which lasted until about 9pm... so it was a VERY LOOOONG day... :P

Hope you all have a lovely Friday!! Big *HUGS* to you all!!

Awwww! You're SO sweet, Angela! And those onion rings were SO great! We love Red Robin - sadly, there isn't one here so we have to go there each time we're in LA. :)

I love the photos! And the one of Mark... hahahah, I have some of Joe like that too!

Thanks, Andrea!! And I love the one of Mark too - that expression has become known as his "corn face." :)
ajayne on January 28th, 2007 06:32 am (UTC)
*giggles at Corn Face* ;) Mark doesn't like any corn?
Was I in it?: asl: ALLIGATOR AND MEalligatorandme on January 19th, 2007 05:54 pm (UTC)
OMG! I wish I could go!

Is Kevin going to get a crash course in ASL now? ;-)

You know, you were the first person I thought of when I found out about this show. :) And Kevin's pretty excited about it - but hasn't mentioned anything about having to learn ASL - though I think he's going to have to. :)
BOOM! goes the dynamite!: aw JJ smiling againmslauren2930 on January 19th, 2007 06:19 pm (UTC)
OMG when we saw "Big River" a few years back, it was seriously one of the single most moving theater experiences of my life. I wish I could see "Sleeping Beauty Wakes," because I'm sure it will be equally moving. :)

You are so lucky to have seen "Big River!!" I always seemed to miss it - by weeks whenever it was anywhere (LA, Ahmanson, Broadway) all my theatre trips happened to be scheduled a week or two either before they opened or after they closed. :( I'm really looking forward to "Sleeping Beauty Wakes!!" :)

Horaay! I betcha I'll see Sleeping Beauty Awake! Boy Kevin has to learn ASL quickly as all hearing actors sign when they speak :)

I'm not sure if I can join you at the end of April, I might go the following weekend (pending on my friend's schedule), but if not, I certainly would love to see the show with you!

BTW cute photos!

YAY!!! Please let me know when you'll be in town - I'd love to see you for a show!! :D Please keep me posted on your schedule!!

These pictures are fabulous! :) Maybe I'm biased since I'm only in three of them. ;P You look great as usual. :) Stacey's wedding was beautiful. I'll have to email you the pictures I have once Roger sends them my way. :)

I think I and at least Roger would love to join you in seeing a show that weekend. I'll have to see what his schedule is and possibly what Laura's schedule is and get back to you about it. I know Laura would love to see you since she hasn't in a while. You know we always love to see you when you're here as well. :) I see that you might have another person that might like to see the show w/you so I suppose it all depends on how many times you'd like to see the show. ;)

I hope you have a nice weekend! *HUGS* Love ya!

Oh, Carrie - you looked so stunning at the wedding!! And I'd definitely email you some pictures as well - sadly the one of the 4 of us is a bit out of focus (but I still love it and will send it to you anyway.) :)

And YAYYYYYY! You know I love seeing you guys and I think you will both really enjoy "Sleeping Beauty Wakes!!" :D Please let me know what day you're free!!

Hope you're having a nice weekend!! Big *HUGS* to you!!!

That's Carrie and I's birthday weekend. I think I'd love to see Sleeping Beauty Wakes. I will have to see where I am job wise, but I should know that within the next month or so. :) I miss seeing you Sheri, and would love to. I may have class that weekend too, I'll know for sure with in the month. HUGS!

Great pictures!

Thanks for sharing the photos. :) You all look great and it looks like that you had a nice time. I'm sorry that Mark was disappointed because of the real corn in the bread but if I'm honest, this picture made me smile too. ;)

Wish you a wonderful weekend, Sheri. Big *hugs* to you! :)

That face that Mark made was so hysterical! I now call it his "corn face" :) - the poor guy hates corn with a passion! ;)

Hope you're having a nice weekend, Sabine!! Big *HUGS* to you!!
I'm so cool too bad I'm a loser: (dogs) pug!audienceawaits on January 23rd, 2007 02:34 am (UTC)
Jason Robert Brown! That is so awesome! I was surprised at how nice he was when we met him here in Toronto. :)

I love your photos. Especially the one of you and Mark at he wedding. You guys look so beautiful. :)

I know exactly what you mean about the photos - I feel like that sometimes too. Especially during Songs for a New World. It just never seemed right!

Jason Robert Brown is just so nice!! It was funny when we told him we were from Hawaii, he mentioned a "hapa" girl in the cast. :D

Thanks for the sweet comments on the photos! HUGS!
