Here's hoping that the adage in the headline of this post is true. In case you've missed the news, Friday was my last day as Artistic Director at Wayside Theatre. I will be continuing to direct the next show, Boeing Boeing, which starts performances on July 13 and opens on July 14.
Thomasin and I have no immediate plans to share at the moment, but I imagine one of the things I will be doing is returning to this blog more frequently, hopefully about new adventures. For the hundreds who have already called, emailed, or reached out via Facebook, Twitter, and other ways, thanks for your comments and support now, and through the years. We're blessed with great family that includes a very large and wonderful family of artists who we have had the distinct pleasure and privilege to work with through 15 seasons at Wayside Theatre. Together we created a lot of joy, shared a lot of pain, and built memories that will last a lifetime. We have also been blessed with the opportunities we have had to share some wonderful theatre memories and by those we have shared them with. Being a part of a performance as an artist or an audience member has always been a truly special thing.
We will miss the many who love Wayside Theatre. We will miss the great times, the difficult and often excruciating challenges, and we'll miss more than we can possibly think of right now I'm sure. But that's life.
Now, where is that door?
