We've begun rehearsals for the tour. The full-on, larger-than-life, two-hour, tour show. We're actually into the tech rehearsal mode - which means we've moved to a studio lot, in a gigantic soundstage, with full lighting, set, sound, the whole nine. Sometimes I take a look around at the surroundings that seem mundane (at times) now to me, and think "how on earth did I get here?" Here, rehearsing in a massive sound stage on a film studio lot, because no other rehearsal space in LA is large enough to accommodate the actual scale of the show I am involved in at the moment. Here, waiting to finish dance rehearsals so I can leave to go to a late night writing session with people who have made millions of dollars documenting the intellectual property that I am currently helping bring to life on stage. Here, preparing to leave the country for 6 weeks for the 10th time in 3 years. Here, feeling a little overwhelmed by it all.
