Well Hello Daniel!
Gaarggghh. I can't believe I didn't write about this.
Tonight is the first night of previews for Daniel's first show on a professional stage. He's appearing as a performance intern at the 5th Avenue Theatre's production of "Hello Dolly!" starring Jenifer Lewis and Pat Cashman.
Daniel has been working his butt off for the past 3 weeks rehearsing every day for the show (12 hours a day for the past week) and tonight the curtain rises for the first time on the production.
As a performance intern, he is a member of the ensemble. Most of the time he sits backstage in a booth with the other interns providing vocal support for the cast but he IS on stage for one big number (As the Parade Passes By).
Valorie and I aren't seeing the show until Thursday evening (the official opening night) but I can't wait to see it. I've been hearing so many great things about this production (especially the Waiters Gallop scene in the Harmonia Gardens - Daniel says it's completely insane) so I'm really looking forward to it.
Ok, enough gushing. Come see the show, it should be great!
