Here we go. Today we do a matinee preview and then open Southern Crossroads tonight. We've got good houses for both shows and we're all excited, nervous, anxious, worried, and eager to get on with it. We had a small audience for the final dress last night and they uniformly loved what we have created. That was encouraging and I think it lifted all of our spirits a bit.
Today is the real test though. We've made no secret about how and why we are doing this show, everyone who pays attention in our community knows we are struggling to keep moving ahead. There is tremendous emotional support out there for the theatre, but in the end the reaction to the show will tell the story.
Are we ready? Yep. Will we succeed? I believe in my heart we will. We'll know soon enough.
