Hello. My name is Kerry McCue. I play Claire in Actors Theatre's upcoming production of Augusta. And I am a blog virgin.
Though I lack the primal instinct to blog, I may magically trick you (like David Blaine) by exhibiting blog wisdom and quirky punctuation beyond my meager experience. I have attended The School of Blog - Professor: Ron May. Sorry to say, Ron has the lower case thing all locked up. I think he has it, like, copyrighted and s**t. So don't nobody go copying, don't be lazy with that shift button. Capitalize that s**t. I tried my own signature style and went the other way with ALL CAPS. Just looked angry.
Thank you Ron for opening this forum, even if you and I are the only ones who read it (Janice too, of course). I must say you have set the bar quite high with your description of this creative outlet as 'Wet & Wild'. You had me at No Porn, Ron. You had me at No Porn.
But down to business...
Like many women in the theatre I find it hard to balance work and home... with being crazy. But seriously, this role in Augusta is my favorite job I've had in a long time. There were a few long days- 12 to 6 @ rehearsal, 6 to 9 @ performance for 4.48 Psychosis. But well worth it, I just love it. I haven't connected so immediately with a character since playing Aunt Debra in Kimberly Akimbo @ Stray Cat Theatre. Not unlike George and Weezy Jefferson, I too know what it feels like to be movin' on up. From transient. To training-wage Merry Maid.
Mad props go out to Mr. T and Pats (Rich & Patty), and a special shout out to April Smith stage manager extraordinaire for doing a slammin' job so far.
Blog tidbit - sometimes people think it's cute to confess embarrassing things in their blogs. Here's mine - Someday I hope to attain a deep sense of satisfaction from Googling myself. That'll just be our little secret. Welllll... yours, mine, and anybody who has access to the internet.
No blog is complete w/out a survey. Here goes--
Q: What are you going to do after you finish reading this blog?
Thank you, Good Night!
P.S. - Did I mention that Sarah Silverman is my hero?
