Fire is extinquished. But the damage was done!

We have firefighters for good reason.  When something is ablaze, much is destroyed.  Well, it seems, performing the theatrical play- Fire can be destructive for an actor as well.  Yes, emotionally speaking, the character, Cale, (based on Jerry Lee Lewis) is fairly self-destructive, but I’m actually speaking quite literally in this case.

Within the rehearsal process and short run of Fire I managed to break: Two tables, two belts, a radio, a pair of shoes, a piano string, a thumbnail, nearly a finger and on the final flourish of the closing night encore of “Great Balls of Fire”- a piano key was knocked sheer off.  Mind you, I was stomping on the piano 😉

Thank you to everybody at Blue Bridge – Brian Richmond, Darcy Stoop and especially Justine Shore; a fantastic cast and to all the people who attended and came with us on our journey.  Amen.
