Friends! This is the weekend to come see me slightly overreact to being rejected by a girl who knows her way around a tambourine.
Use the discount code “TOPSY TURVY” at the box office for $30 rush tickets. Only 3 more weeks to see this beautiful show, directed by the one and only @theevanpappas ! Just a quick trip from Penn on the LIRR.
See you at Notre Dame! @theargyletheatre #Hunchback #frolloproblems 📸: Richard Termine
HAPPY HUMP-DAY (or Hunch Day for this dude) 😂😱 it’s almost the weekend!! 🙌🏼
Top nine! It’s been a wild year. We did some great shows, pulled some some capers, drank some water, drank some whiskey, did some shopping, spent good times with friends and family, paid some bills, did some hiking and stepped on. Bring on 2019! Love y’all! @meggandbacon @wayfarer_way @ethanadrian #wayfarerway #colonel #hunchback #ethan
This was a fantastic weekend -- #Hunchback is going to be living with me for a long time. It was my first lead role, my first show with this huge a cast, and my first time as music director.The feedback I've gotten has been amazing. I've gotten tons of praise for my portrayal of Clopin (which is always touching, considering I'm not nearly as confident an actor as people seem to think I am), but also a ton of praise for the music (which I will argue to my deathbed was made easy by how attentive and talented my wonderful castmates are -- they made it VERY easy as my MD debut).Moreover, though, this was the biggest theatre project I've taken on, personally. Six months of rehearsals, and a year of listening to this soundtrack to internalize it all, have come to a close. I had one weekend in a manic state where I couldn't stay still (which made being a statue for half the show very interesting), then flipped and have been in a depressive episode for the last few days (which made giving the energy that Clopin needed and deserved way harder). And all this before I start my ADHD meds!
I had rehearsals where I was struggling to stay awake and focused because of med side effects; I had days where rehearsal was the light at the end of the tunnel; I had rehearsals I couldn't give it my all. It's been an adventure, but one that I think has helped me grow.
Now, on to the next one! #NexttoNormal opens in March, and we're starting that process this week -- I'm so, SO excited.
