WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 108
You should see my dinning room table, it's covered in new to me weird dolls. I'm still waiting on a couple of boxes. So much for not buying anything. I'm going to wait until the rest of the boxes show up to start taking photos. I will have to reorganize the cabinet.
Shhh, she's sleeping. I've got no information about this one.
This not working hasn't set in yet, as I usually don't work in July. I'm sure I'll start feeling the change next month. Wherever we end up I still want to work. It's a whole lot of fun making costumes and being around theatre people. Cue "There's No Business Like Show Business"

"...THE AVENUE I'M TAKING YOU TO, 42nd STREET"
About time, right? 42nd St premiered in 1980, based on a novel and the movie of the same name from 1933. It has a very simple plot: Peggy Sawyer comes to NYC and wants to be on Broadway. Does she succeed? Let's find out........
All the photos by Genny Sutter
The show opens with an audition for Julian Marsh's new show "Pretty Lady"
Mr. Marsh ( Micheal Hadary) wasn't impressed. The, slightly, over the hill Dorothy Brock (Desiree Dillon) shows up with her Texas oil man boyfriend Abner Dillon (Blake Fountain). Dorothy gets cast as the lead because Abner is putting up $100,000 to finance the show.
Dorothy comes back to the theatre, but the audition is over. Maggie Jones take her to lunch with some of the chorus girls
Let's have a run through of "Dames".
It's opening night of Pretty Lady at The Arch Street Theatre
(Megan Wheeler, Sarah Arnett, Tanisha Moore, Christine McNeal)
Cue major tap dance number "We're In The Money"
Maggie tells Julian that Peggy's leaving, but he should go get her, because she's really talented and she can save the show.
Two days later, it's the opening night of Pretty Lady on Broadway!
Dang, that was a lot of photos. It's kind of bittersweet for me, because it's the last show I'll be working on here at VSU. I've worked here since 1992! The Doctor retired and I resigned, our new phase of our lives await. Wish us luck!
And enjoy the show
