Today is a very special Valentine's Day, because it is closing night of Murder on the Nile. I have grown so much during the course of this show. Jacqueline de Severac has proven to be one of the most challenging characters I have played in a long while. I am so glad that we had a nice long run so I could sink me teeth into her.
We have been performing for SOLD OUT houses night after night. Agatha Christie really knows how to bring in an audience.
Tonight two of my friends from the Shakespeare Institute (now living in California) came to see my final performance. Tanya flew in from the bay area and Red drove nearly 2 hours to share this moment with me. I am so blessed to have such supportive friends and family. I feel like I can take on the world!
Opening weekend for Murder on the Nile at the Long Beach Playhouse was SOLD OUT! We have also sold 3 private command performances in addition to our regular run. I feel so blessed to be a part of this fabulous production. The turnout has been no less than amazing. Tonight we hosted out champagne gala. It is rewarding to finally have an audience after weeks of rehearsal. Our audiences have been engaged in solving the mystery and the feedback has been very positive thus far. I cannot wait to get back out there next weekend and continue the journey of Jacqueline de Severac.
Last night the entire cast of Murder on the Nile were together at last! We have been slowly piecing together the show in segments and out of order for the last 3 weeks. It feels a lot like working on a film. It feels good to finally have everyone in the same room at the same time.
