Petrouchka is here.
Tomorrow is opening night for the NY Musical Theatre Festival's production of "Petrouchka!" I'm excited to be a part of the show, and things are coming along nicely. I think we're ready. The director/choreographer seems pleased and calm, and the cast is really coming together with good energy. It has been a challenging process for me as I have been working on moving in another way, but it reminds me that I need to trust that I have good training and the ability to adapt. At times I have to remember to ignore the demons in the back of my mind of people in my past that made me feel inadequate at picking up different styles. I feel lucky that I was given the chance to stretch myself and begin to make a new impression of myself on the minds of other choreographers and dancers. So, here goes! I'm going to enjoy myself and feel grateful for the opportunity to perform on 42nd Street in the heart of Times Square!
