So, week 2. More of the same. But the warm up we do w Maija Garcia (associate choreographer) is incredible. Very similar in some ways to the Fin warm up for Equus, but longer, less breakneck running, more breathing/stretching, and most importantly more music!!!!!! LOL. Another interesting tidbit, we re using the EXACT same rehearsal studio we used for Equus too. The similarities end there though :-). Too much to get into for now, but basically there is tons of singing….. did I say tons, lots of dance/movement/staging…….yup. The band & music is INCREDIBLE. If you don’t know anything about Fela Anikulapo Kuti do some homework, google, wiki,  Barnes & Nobles/Border’s Bookstore, whatever it is you need to. I’m saying: come on y’all get with it. Fix Ya Faces!!!!!!!!! LOL. Suffice to say it will be a very unique show for Broadway. LOL…….trust me. Oh did I say Bill T Jones is directing & choreographing? No joke. Ya have NO clue. It’s Not  A Game x 50…………

Lets’ see what else…..well we lost a musical icon, genius, trailblazer, trendsetter and much more this past week! Michael Jackson left to join the ancestors. No matter how you look at him, he changed the world with his art and opened people’s hearts, and that is a great thing, right? Right!!!!! We should be thankful because NOTHING is promised nor guaranteed.  So with all that being said, and more left to meander between the lines, phrases and paragraphs let’s see what this week has to offer. Or what I can offer the week  :-)
