While feeling has its pits and the sporadic stab, generally, it is a wonderful thing. I now wonder why I used to deny it and hide behind the entire stoic façade. None of us go unscathed anyway. So why not just lose yourself in the emotion and feel the way you do? And doesn’t it … Continue reading Once more, with Feeling
I'm on a Sister Act high. I was fortunate enough to see it on West End, with Whoopi Goldberg in the cast. She doubled as the show's co-producer and as Mother Superior in the new smash hit musical. The set was magically thought out and crafted, the music divinely put together by Mr Menken and, the … Continue reading Oh Whoopi Day.

Since I’ve seen the rest (with the exception of Priscilla, and admittedly, I don’t know what the hell it’s about! Haha!), I opted to see Hair. A bunch of … Continue reading GSA Field Trip: HAIR.
It isn’t about doing things perfectly. Sometimes, it’s about doing them. PERIOD. Today, I plunged into one of my insanely ridiculous fears—singing in front of a crowd. Yes, that sounds crazy. At least for someone in Musical Theater. I should be used to it. I should be flippant about getting criticism- objective or otherwise. I … Continue reading GSA Workshop 2
