Here I go again….apologizing for not blogging enough. Well between work and “after-work,” it’s been hectic. Last night was the first night I was home early enough and got to enjoy spending time with my son. Either he or I are always doing something and we hardly get to see each other.
This week started out no different. I had a meeting on Monday and Tuesday night I didn’t get home until early Wednesday. However, I can at least say that my shortened night of sleep this week was well worth it.
My co-worker, Jill Moon, and I attended opening night of Tracy Letts Pulitzer Prize winning play August:Osage County on Tuesday at the Fabulous Fox Theatre. Both Jill and I wrote stories previewing the event. I interviewed Estelle Parsons for flaire. who won an Academy Award in 1968 for best supporting actress in Bonnie and Clyde. Today most people would probably remember her from her decade-long role at Rosanne‘s mother.
I enjoyed the interview and once I saw the play..wow….really it’s a must see for anyone who likes theater. The best part for Jill and I was getting to attend the cast party. Yes, we got to go and “schmooze” with everyone, but sitting down at a table with Estelle and just talking with the Hollywood legend- priceless. She really is a remarkable woman and the rest of the cast really admires and respects her as do those behind the scenes.
I’ve been backstage before, both Jill and I have to meet the people we’ve interviewed, but it was truly enjoyable to see everyone in a different atmosphere and be able to carry on a conversation.
I don’t wan t to give away too many details, but tickets are still available and the production is in town until March 14. It really is a must see and you will not be disappointed.
