This evening I had the chance to be part of a play reading for one of my very very favorite Chicago companies – this meant dashing home between the afternoon rehearsal and the performance (some great luck with buses and some very quick changing involved – AND I still grabbed dinner!) so I could shuck my T-shirt and jeans (needed for the morning’s running around) for something a little more stage-appropriate;
(I told you you might recognize the dress . . . it’s an impulse purchase that is now evolving into one of my favorite camera-and-stage friendly finds – fits well, flatters, and is a lovely color without distracting the eye too much).
And then there was French comedy of manners, a lovely post-show discussion, and a sparkling battle of wits and words – all in all, a delightful eve.
The director did tell me she thought I resembled my t-shirt . . . and I think she might not be wrong about that . . .
(Also, I absolutely would have worn that red polka dot top. In a heartbeat.)
See you tomorrow with a whole new week’s worth of adventures.
