You may be aware that I’m working on a show called Sexy Librarian: File Under Rock Musical. If not, we must not be friends on the Facebook or the Twitter, because it’s pretty much the only thing I’ve been talking about lately. ‘Sexy This’ and ‘Sexy That’ – I’m actually trying to see how many times I can get away with using the word ‘Sexy’ in my status updates before Facebook finds me to be inappropriate. So far, so good.
I’m really quite amazed by Joking Envelope’s following – our Friday night preview was pretty packed and our Saturday night opening was just a few short of selling out. This concerns me only because of something posted on my quote board at work. A coworker asked if they had to make reservations in advance to which I replied she’d probably be fine just walking up the night of.
“What if they’re sold out?” she asked.
“I’d pee… I’d be that excited.” I responded.
And here’s where the concern comes in. I’d really rather not have an accident upon learning our show sells out on any given night. But now that it’s been said and committed to the quote board, I can’t be held accountable for my actions.
Be sure to check this show out if you get a chance. It’s been getting really solid reviews. I’m thrilled to be working with Mike Rylander again – you may remember about this time last year, he and I were obnoxiously promoting Live Action Set’s The Happy Show. He’s fantastic as is the rest of the cast of Sexy Librarian. I’ve wanted to work with quite a few people in this cast and feel incredibly fortunate to now have that opportunity.
In 6 days, one of the hottest shows you will be able to see live in Minneapolis opens at the Theater Garage. On April 28th, previews begin for Joking Envelope’s Sexy Librarian: File Under Rock Musical and I really couldn’t be much more excited. This show combines elements that I’m a pretty big fan of: Sexiness, Comedy, Rock Music and did I mention Sexiness? Sexiness.
My character’s name is Ashley. She’s a local townsperson recently appointed to a new committee the city council just created. That’s all I’m saying about here for now. You will be able to get updates from Ashley during each performance. She’ll be hijacking my twitter account (LABol_25) to share crazy antics from the town of Dense Wood and it’s city council. I should warn you, she’s kind of a brat, so these updates may not be the friendliest you’ve ever read. #SexyLibrarian
In other exciting news, you can see me on another website! This is a group I recently connected with via a former college classmate of mine – Gabe Steinberg (his picture is right next to mine). They do awesome things like produce sketches and commercials for contests that may actually bring in this crazy stuff called money. I was a PA for the Acuvue spot and actually got to wrangle puppies and make cotton – Best Day Ever. Speaking of money, they’re hoping to bring in a small amount to help finish up a few projects. Should you be looking for a place to donate some green, I know it would be appreciated.
I hope to see you sexy people at our sexy show next week – there’s an opening night party on Saturday April 30th. I have a feeling it’s going to be sexy and I know you don’t want to miss that. In the event the 30th is a no go for you, here is more info on dates and times and such. See you at the sexy show!
