I'm so sorry that I haven't been around in a while...  
...last week was amazingly busy at work. We're all gearing up for our big annual referral contest (Race to Retirement) and we've been spending the last couple of weeks traveling from branch to branch to kick it off. I think I've caught up on all of your posts that I missed, and I completely apologize for being so bad about posting and commenting lately...

Mark & I got to see "Lend Me A Tenor" at Diamond Head Theatre on Thursday night - which was surprisingly funny (for a really slapstick sort of play.) The show was pretty enjoyable and the slapstick was pretty understated, which I enjoyed. :)

Speaking of theatre, Mark & I are off to LA again this week. :) We leave on Wednesday night and arrive in LA on Thursday, just in time to catch Kevin and Bets in concert in Long Beach. :) It should be a really nice trip for us and a REALLY nice break for me from all the stress of work. :)

I've also tentatively scheduled my April theatre trip:

Thursday, April 26th (eve): Possibly Hamlet at the Rubicon, we'll see...
Friday, April 27th (eve): Sleeping Beauty Wakes at the Kirk Douglas with Lily :)
Saturday, April 28th (mat): Possibly Sleeping Beauty Wakes with Carrie, Roger, and maybe Laura?? :) (I'm not sure... we really haven't set a date yet...) Maybe that evening??
Saturday, April 28th (eve): Possibly Altar Boyz at Musical Theatre West
Sunday, April 29th (mat): Sleeping Beauty Wakes with Linda! :)
Sunday, April 29th (eve): Beehive at the El Portal

In other news, I finished the second season of Six Feet Under this past weekend... I'm entirely addicted to the show - the writing is simply brilliant and the acting is just beyond words!! Michael C. Hall has THE GREATEST body language - and I'm SUCH a fan of actors with great body language...

Kevin is one of those actors... I remember seeing him as Billy Bigelow in "Carousel" and there's this scene where he nervously shifts his weight from foot to foot while talking with Jigger - apparently uneasy about the impending crime they're about to commit. He does it absent-mindedly and when Jigger points it out, he stops, only to clutch at his chest because his "heart can't stop jumping around under the knife." His characterization was beautiful and in these few minutes, he literally turns into a scared little boy in front of our eyes. It was absolutely brilliant. Michael is the same way... In one episode we see him shaking his foot nervously as he receives a call he knows is Keith and then sitting up and hugging his legs close to his body as he's speaking with him almost as if to shield himself from being hurt by Keith again... SOOO beautiful...

Anyway... Enough talk about Kevin and Michael C. Hall (since I could probably talk about both all day long...) I should probably run and get ready for work. :) Hope you all have a lovely week!! :)

"Altar Boyz" is a lot of fun and the tour cast is great. I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
Is "Sleeping Beauty Wakes" the Groovelily/Deaf West production? Last year, I seem to remember it being referred to as "Waking Beauty" but I think I heard they had changed the name. I'm really looking forward to it. ~annemarie

Thanks! :) I'm actually seeing the touring cast of "Altar Boyz" this weekend at the Wadsworth. :) I'm sure I'll enjoy it - I've heard so many good things about it. :D

And "Sleeping Beauty Wakes" is a joint production with Deaf West Theatre and CTG. :) It sounds really great - and even if Kevin wasn't going to star in it, I think I'd want to see it. :)

Wow you'll see SBW more times than I will! Has Kevin started the rehearsal yet? He has to learn ASL real fast!

Spoke with Kevin last night and he says he's learning sign language (he even signed a little as he spoke to me - which was cute) :) Should be a great show!

I'm ever so impressed with your theater life. I'm jelous.

I just feel so thankful that I can actually travel out to see the shows that I do - I think that if I didn't, I'd go completely insane at work! :P

If you get the chance, opt for seeing Altar Boyz. It would definitely be a fun time... I left the NYC theatre still bopping my head and singing.

On a side note, you've intrigued me about Sleeping Beauty Wakes so now I feel the need to go learn more about it. :o)

Thanks for your comment! :) I'm definitely going to try to see "Altar Boyz" at MTW! I'm also seeing the touring cast this weekend at the Wadsworth and I'm getting pretty excited about it. :)

"Sleeping Beauty Wakes" should be a great show! I just spoke with Kevin last night and he said it takes place partially in a clinic and partially in a fairy tale world. He plays A LOT of different characters, and I think he said that he's the voice of the prince. He's also been learning sign language like crazy. It sounds like it'll be wonderful. :)

Roger and I would love to join you on April 28th for the mat. showing. I'm not sure if Laura is available, but I'll remind her that you are asking. :)
