Baring it: Theatre Thursday

I'm still out hiking through the hills, so I will sate your Theatre Thursday lust with these gratuitous photos from backstage at Cabaret. When I auditioned I told the director that I would be comfortable wearing lingerie on stage, but that after giving birth (nearly 2 years prior) no one really wanted to see my bare stretch marked belly.
I'm second from the left. I LOVED those big fishnets, and wish I could find the guts to wear them in real life. Mein Herr. Singing in German and dancing on a chair. Good times.
Money makes the world go 'round. (I'm on the far right)

Oh! That reminds me about how I would practice the songs while driving in the van. The May Queen was about 20 months old, and would ask me to play Money over and over again... she loved the part when the EmCee would make the raspberry sound! She would giggle and giggle and do it herself and giggle some more!

Don't Tell Mama that I posted this picture a few weeks ago when I wrote about understudying.

There were some people from my church at the time... you know, the one my husband was a pastor for... who came to see the show. They were only mildly scandalized. After all, I had already done The Vagina Monologues, and was just getting them warmed up for Angels in America. I didn't bare much flesh in that show, but I did share a stage with a naked man.

(and may I just say that now I am singing "Money makes the PANTS go down, the PANTS go down, the PANTS go down..." Do the PANTS never end??)

Wow. You are brave (and adorable). I can't imagine doing those shows in front of my fellow church goers. ;)

I'm intently curious with thoughts on how your congregation took in the triumvirate of controversial shows? All have historical and political significance -- but do push socially touchy buttons. Did they just sort of take it in, in order to support you, and then shake it off later? Or did it make an impact in the sense of changing how they may think about war, or disease, or sexuality?

And yes.

Money most definitely makes the pants go down.

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info.
