Therese with the marvelous cast of Jesus Christ Superstar. (I’m the hippie with the white daisies in my hair, 2nd row 3rd from left)
Sorry I haven’t posted in a while. I’ve been busy the past couple of months as a cast member in a local production of Jesus Christ Superstar. This weekend is the last three shows, and I gotta tell you, this has be a wonderful adventure for me, and it’s a joy to get back into a little acting again! I’m in the ensemble for the piece, and I’m playing everything from a worshiper to a fish merchant to an angel!
Jesus Christ Superstar is the classic rock opera from 1970 penned by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. It brings to life the last week in the life of Jesus and his conflicts with the priests of the Sanhedrin and his disciple Judas. It’s a powerful musical, with classic songs like I Don’t Know How To Love Him, Gethsemane, King Herod’s Song and, of course, the title number.
Our show has been the happiest hard work I’ve ever done! It’s a joy to see it come together from audition to final piece, and I’ve made many lovely new friends.
If any of you live in the Binghamton, NY area, please come check it out! You can read a review here and get tickets here.
I’ll be back next week with Trek stuff. Thanks for your patience! 🙂 -Therese
It appears Scotty has the April bug too!
There will never be another like him. Unforgettable ❤
A very Happy (if slightly late) Birthday Wish for the marvelous Dorothy C. Fontana (March 25) who penned many of the original Trek episodes that deepened Spock’s history and culture, and made him the beloved Vulcan he became! (Amok Time, Journey to Babel), You can read all about wonderful and inspiring D.C Fontana here. (Thanks Corylea for the reminder!)
Hope you had a great day Dorothy! You are an inspiration to writers (especially women) everywhere! ❤
Hey Captain! Our Captain hits 86 today! Happy Birthday Bill! God bless you with another beautiful year and many many more!
BTW, Guess who I got my picture taken with last June at Star Trek: Mission New York? — I was wearing my Dr. Miranda Jones costume and had Bill hold a faux red rose with me, just like in the episode! (Silly me!) He looks perfectly flummoxed here, but it was totally worth it!
I’ll write more about my convention experiences from last year soon; very busy lately with my two jobs and also rehearsing for local production of Jesus Christ Superstar!
As I write this we are at 2+ feet of snow outside my door! (I live in NYS) This is a whopper of a storm, so naturally I thought I should feature Spock and company in a snowy backdrop today! Stay warm my fellow storm-bearers!
Poor Sulu. Apparently in The Enemy Within, The Enterprise forgot it had shuttlecrafts!
Spock kisses the howling wind in All Our Yesterdays.
You know it’s cold when your extremities turn white!
