Watching My First Show
Life has been mundane and boring up until today. I was so happy to have gotten some donations over the last two weeks. The nee amp not working has crippled my hustle game. I'm thinking about going it solo on the trains till its replaced. Idk why I'm so hesitant. Today I put all that aside.
I Wasn't able to get the audition in But Mr. Faison was cool enough to let me come to the show! It's actually an old firehouse! The cutest theater! I know Phaidra of Infinite Arts back in Atlanta would flip to use this stage! Although this is the matinee, seats are filling up pretty fast. A lot of the patrons are older. I get the feeling that these people know there stuff when it comes to good work. I've never seen "Ain't Misbehavin " live or even since I was a kid, watching it on TV. The air here is vibrant with excitement and chatter as we wait.
As Mr. Faison opened the show he introduced me! OMGS He even told me to stand up and sing a quick song. I was in shock but opened my mouth. And what comes out? The title song. I sung the first verse of "Ain't Misbehavin " and immediately received applause. After I sat down I felt like a total fool. Of all songs, that came out of my mouth? I really felt that was in poor taste on y account. I thought I was prepared to sing just in case he asked but not like that. I even brought my songbook for belters. I didn't let on that I was mad at myself but I was punching myself mentally. He also introduced his very special guest and friend, Dionne Warwick!
Maybe that's why I was so thrown off. I've got to get the star struck thing under control. I didn't want to approach her because many people were. I knew she was there to enjoy herself so I figured I would try to get in a picture with her after the show. Cab you say AMAZBALLS! The show was on a small set but if felt larger than life! The 5 singers who's names I MUST learn were some real show stoppers! I couldn't help but applaud loudly at each song. I want that stage. I need it.
