The Show Must Go(ld) On

I remember my first encounter with theater. I was in preschool. It was a production of Snow White. I was auditioning for the very crucial role of "tomato seller." I was in character, I had my line down (I believe it was something like "tomatoes for sale!" - gripping stuff, I know). When the time came for me to perform in front of my teacher and an audience (about 5 of my fellow preschoolers), the pressure of carrying this pivotal role was too much....I cried. I ended up being a flower - no lines, but I jumped around at the end of the play when Snow White woke up like a freakin' boss. I wore my paper bag with a face hole and purple construction paper flower petals glued on like a rock star. I was the best flower that preschool had ever seen.

I have come quite a ways from those days, and being a part of theater is something I still enjoy. One of my favorite spaces in this city is the Guthrie Theater. It has ridiculously amazing views and the inside and outside are gorgeous. I found an amazing, glamorific vintage skirt and thought it was perfect for the setting.

Walking the red carpet! No pictures please! Well, except this one.

As soon as I saw this skirt I knew I needed it. I love the shimmery gold fabric and all the pleats. So many pleats!

Look how happy I am about the pleats! I look a little crazy, but happy crazy. So that's a plus.







I'm glad I didn't let that childhood trauma stop me from having a (pseudo) successful (can barely be described as a) career on the stage. I can use it in my method acting. I know what that means, since I'm a super serious actress and all. With that, I will leave you with something anyone who calls themselves a thespian should be familiar with....
