I am sitting in my dressing room about to go on stage at Carnegie Hall, narrating the concert opera of “Grapes of Wrath.” I am so excited bevause it’s such a powerful show with so much talent. Everyone has been so nice. For everyone, performing at Carnegie Hall is a life’s dream. I love this show. I hope one day the full opera can be done in New York as it was in Minnesota. I have loved getting to know Christine Ebersole. She is lit from within, basks in a golden glow–like marilyn monroe used to, but Christine is grounded and solid (and deeply talented to boot!) I can hear the musicians warming up. The stage manager just called 15 minutes. Feels like being on Broadway last year. I have missed it. I can hear the audience coming in. I will go down now to prepare and will blog at intermission about how the first act went.
See you then. X
