During the show tonight....we got onto stage...which is always a bit out of body for the first few minutes after a couple days off...but as soon as we started it was like AMITYVILLE HORROR!!! The flies....they were everywhere...and while Louise did her intro monologue I watched the Huntress known as Andrea Martin squish 2 of the 800 flies before we got to the first group scene.
I even killed one...it was...um distracting...I mean we are professionals...but holy crap...there were so many and it seemed like they were the size of birds. They blocked the light when they flew past them.
Louise even drew them in her picture tonight!! The flies...holy crap.
I said to Mary...it was like we were covered in shit...which she repeated giving me the credit a number of times.
Thank you Mary!
Still..the show was super fun and the AUDIENCE WAS AMAZING! And vocal! You go ladies...and man!
