Playing Jane Porter in Disney's Tarzan is a fabulous distraction from my Master's thesis.
And working at the Hale Centre Theatre is such an exhilarating experience. The production staff is made of artistic geniuses, every single one of them, and the aerialists are pure magic! The things these people do with their bodies! I'm lucky I'm playing Jane because there's NO WAY I could do what the ensemble does. Everyone constantly posts pictures of their fresh bruises, and I'm proud to share that my wrist has started bleeding and callusing from the little aerial adventures Tarzan and I have on the silks. I love how demanding this work is!
It's just about four weeks until the show is up and running. I seriously can't wait.
Oh, and I made the connection yesterday that I'm doing aerials in my Ariel wig. That's pretty special.
