It was bittersweet. We have had a glorious run and much fun. We became a sort of family, and the wonderful audiences some of whom came back to see it again and again—it can take several viewings cause there is so much to absorb. I will miss all this.
It is hard for me to think I will never play Dr Katharine Brandt again…then again, I’ve learned never to say never.
I was very moved by friends who came backstage and the others who then joined me at the party to benefit The Women’s Media Center which we held in the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. There will be more photos from that event but I wanted to get this posted tonight.
We partied till late at the Brasserie next to the theatre (the best Hot Toddy—for my throat!) and today I am a zombie wandering aimless it feels—no theatre to go to. No pre-play nap to take. No rush of preparing to go on stage and take people on the fascinating trip with me
And yet..and yet…I can take a vacation; begin my next books about adolescent sexuality and gender and start preparing and rehearsing the next 2 Prime Time workouts I’m going to do. I am very excited about how these are shaping up.Tags: 33 variations, Annette Bening, Catherine Keener, David Binder, Forest Whitaker, Kathy Najimey
