To Our Fearless Performers

Ooh, I’m getting old(er) or something.

Immersed in these pieces and music and I find myself crying far more easily then I used to when I first started this process in 2008.

Absolutely crushing on this band Blue October.

Their song “Fear” resonates with me over and over and reading these pieces just makes me think of everyone dealing with their daily struggles.

We have pieces that shed perspective on a Russian adoption, a late term miscarriage, thinking your pool man is a little too hot and stumbling and tripping over how to connect with your kids.

Our shows always provide laughter, don’t worry. At any rate here is the song I’ve been drooling over.

A big thank you to our fearless performers. And yes, I know there are nerves and yes, we share some wine backstage but you are doing it or you’ve done it.

 

Saturday Night

Kiddos are asleep and I’m re-visiting the upcoming pieces that will be shared with our Chicago audience members.

Listening to music to pair with the pieces and crying.

Thank you for sharing your stories.

I’d never heard of this band, Blue October, but enjoying “Sway” by them. This is the only video I could find, starts around 2:20 but resonates. I think about the couple of intimate hours that are held in the theatre and how I treasure that time.

We sway
Grabbed her by the hips and hand
Then off we went
Across the sanded floor
She said “that’s not sand, it’s salt
It will get worn like we did before”I only wanna dance with you
Every time I try
We only get an hour or so
It’s time to get personal
We’ve got these times of our lives
Lets take this time to let it show
these are ours.These are ours

We sway
The moon shines down
And everybody’s safe.
Christmas lights all day
And rightly so
We feel high as fuck
And everything is good
Good to go

I watch the snow fall down
Feels great to be honest
Forget about the trouble
Forget about the drama
Cause I ain’t Casanova
Baby I can dance for days
This time with you
Is just amazing in so many ways

I only wanna dance with you
Every time I try
We only get an hour or so
It’s time to get personal
We’ve got these times of our lives
Lets take this time to let it show
these are ours.

These are ours

We’ll stay until we want to
That’s how it use to be
We never fell apart
We stay here until we want to
Now we just sway

Come on…. Dance with me

These,
These are ours
These,
These are ours

We sway
