Well, I wish I could say I had performed "on Broadway" this past weekend, but that isn't entirely accurate.
You see, I wasn't actually in a Broadway show, but I performed ON A BROADWAY STAGE (!), which was totally and completely awesome. I was in a children's workshop version of Wicked and had the chance to portray the iconic Elphaba for an audience of about 1400 girl scouts at the Gershwin Theatre.
Green's a good color for me, right? Hah.
It was an intense experience to get outfitted for body mics by the actual Wicked sound techs, get cues from the actual Wicked stage manager, and step out onto the actual stage where so many Wicked greats have gone before.
I was surprised that it didn't feel like there were 1400 people in the audience -- I expected the house to feel much larger, but it didn't feel as obscenely large as I had expected.
Overall, it was a wonderful day (one short day in the Emerald city...anyone?) and I certainly hope that it won't be my last time singing on a Broadway stage. No, scratch that. It WON'T be. Until we meet again, Broadway!
