The Flower Drum Song Revival made me believe in possibilities

“A Hundred Million Miracles are happening every day!!”

Wow… I must agree.  After watching Lea Salonga perform today in the “Flower Drum Song,” it’s hard to deny it!  Geez… I swear the performance was heartstopping.  At one point, during the duet, I actually stopped breathing.  Shivers man, shivers. Wow.  It takes me back to my acting classes when one of my teachers talked to us about a play elliciting a visceral response… I think he said something about that being the true test of a production’s potential.  If it makes you respond viscerally, then the actors and the stage people, they’ve all done their jobs to fullest.  And believe me… today’s performance was… wow. Hahaha… I swear it makes me want to work harder… work with my voice more and my acting more.   It would be really, really great one day if I got to be on a stage like that, opposite some amazingly talented individuals.  That’s it… I’m gonna practice now…. la la la la la la la la laaaaa…. bumblebee, bumblebee… Damn… I can’t get it out of my mind… it was just jawdropping… heartstopping…  some would say, orgasmic…  hoodyhoo!! wow.

And to top it all off… we saw her and got her autograph!!  WOOOHOOO!!!!!  I’ve got a signed program that I’m staring at right now…  I’ll kill anyone that touches it.  I shall run thee through with my rapier… and stuff.   Dammit… I can’t study!!!!!!

Haha… my brain is filled w/ the beats of flower drums when it should be filled w/ the works of Aeschylus, Sophocles, Marlowe and Shakespeare.  Ekkyklema, Deus ex Machina, Skene, Parados…  it’s all not mattering too much at this point.  Who could study with all the music I have in my mind?  My father says.. children keep growing… rivers keep flowing…

Man… I should be doing my laundry too…  what the hell am I gonna wear tomorrow?

I’m gonna be on that stage someday though… I will.
