Spending the week in Tokyo working with The Broadway Experience, a program that provides a week of musical theater dance, voice, and acting training to young performers. The weather has been cool and rainy, but I caught the first few sakura buds blossoming in nearby Ueno Park. Back to NYC on Sunday.
Kicking off the 32bars Series with some Bach. Hope you all are staying warm and happy on this rainy Thursday!
I took Maggie on a walk to my friend Tao’s house this afternoon. Tao is one of those – to borrow a term from Emilie Wapnic – multipotentialites (see obligatory Ted Talk). He plays the trombone as well as he can draw a photorealistic sketch with charcoal, sight-read upright bass rep, make a bourbon latte, or lead a yoga class. Catch him at your local yoga studio until November. Then catch him somewhere in the US on the national tours of How the Grinch Stole Christmas and 42nd Street.
Well, we made it to Shanghai after a relatively comfortable 14-hour flight from Newark. We are here for a week or so performing with the My Fair Lady 2016 China Tour. I’ll be updating this site with our tour dates, photos, and information from the road. Can’t wait for all of the wonderful adventures! Happy travels.
P.S. – The above photo was taken today in a beautiful park near our hotel. These birds were incredibly noisy but beautiful to look at.
