So, I was so excited about this weekend, that I completely forgot to blog about going there. :)
On Thursday, I got to fly home. :D I flew from Tulsa, OK to Dallas, TX and then to Albuquerque, NM, I was just so overwhelmed with excitement and such that I just didn’t get to write about it! So I will now… I flew in a day earlier than my cast because I had a bunch of press to do since this was my hometown performance weekend. Well, actually, I grew up in Los Alamos, about 2 hours away from Albuquerque, but a great number of my friends and people I’ve known since I was a little girl were in Albuquerque or at least within driving distance of there. So many people came out to see it, I was just amazed and so very grateful.
The other amazing thing was, when I was little the very first big Broadway production that I ever saw live was CATS. Where did I see it? Popejoy Hall in Albuquerque. Where did I get to perform the role of Grizabella this weekend? You guessed it. The very same theater. It was pretty emotional for me… It was incredible stepping onto that stage doing the show that I had seen there all those years ago. It was almost like things had come around full circle, and I just had the most amazing bunch of people come out to see and support the show. I was just completely blown away by the amazing, phenomenal, generous people in my life.
