Here we are, the first DonnaBlog. I’m excited. So you’ll always be able to find the blogs about Priscilla and New York. This first blog is about having measurements done.
So a week ago last Tuesday I went to Manitoba Theatre Centre here in Winnipeg to meet the lovely Lorraine to have measurements done and sent to New York so they can start working on my costumes. Good God, people. They took every measurement you could imagine. They could literally make a whole other “me” out of muslin now. Seriously, every inch of me, it felt like, was measured and notated – from head to toe. Including foot tracing, measurement all over my feet, ankles, and calves for boots to be made, measurements for tights. Tights – a 6 letter word for “what have I done to deserve this?” I’ve seen the youtube videos and we pretty much have to wear everything you can imagine wearing.
Oh, in other Priscilla news, they have finally cast the role of the third part of the trio. Nick Adams, who was originally cast as ensemble, is now playing Adam/Felicia. I’ve been looking at youtube of him. I don’t even know the guy but I feel so happy for him. He’s been doing stuff on Broadway for the last few years but this is his first lead. He seems like a really nice guy so it’s a big break for him. Love that.
Other than that, we start rehearsals in 4 1/2 weeks, y’all. Woohoo. There will be so much more to come.
