Fact #77: Goodbye Beatrice

We closed Much Ado today!

Endings are bittersweet. It's always a little sad to say goodbye, but then it's on to the next thing. Ah, we actors are so fickle!

I will say this though -- I hope, I hope, I hope that I get a chance to revisit this play and this character again sometime. That's definitely not something I say after every show I'm in. But I can say absolutely that I would play Beatrice again anytime, anywhere. Even in a production where we're all dressed as clowns. Bring it on.

So, goodbye Beatrice. For now. Maybe I'll see ya 'round.

Beatrice and Benedick share a tender moment.

Til tomorrow!

Ah, how I miss theatre! I remember closing shows that I didn't want to say goodbye to, it was always hard. Then there were the shows that went on too long, those were much less fun.... Glad to hear that you had a good time with Beatrice.

I loved your Beatrice. And look forward to seeing her, played by you, again.
