It's Over . . . .





It's true - Arsenic and Old Lace is over. It's been three years since I was last on stage and having such a fantastically fun return has made the ending even harder! It's always hard to say goodbye to a show when I am the director but I had somewhat forgotten the moroseness that follows a show you have acted in.

Perhaps it is simply because it had been so long since I was last an actor that it was all over way too quickly. Perhaps its because I felt a connection to such good folk in the cast and crew. Perhaps it is because when I am the director - the saddest, hardest week is not once the show wraps but when once it opens and you realize you must let go . . . .


One thing is for sure - it wont be another three years before I strap on those character shoes again. I've rediscovered some things about myself. I love to be on-stage. I love not being in charge every now and then. And I love the camaraderie that is a part of being in the
'cast'. Arsenic and Old Lace - I will miss you!
