Seems it’s time.
…Time to start down an old road, in search for some truth and hope. Time to deal with happenings in the past, drag them out into the light and face them once again.
In front of several hundred people.
…My head, already feeding on the script, I’ve started a companion album to the piece. I do it a lot, when beginning work on a character. Because music gets to the heart of the matter immediately…giving you a sort of soundtrack to play by. Something that can run in my head on the way to the theatre, and as I put on my makeup and set my hair every night.
…Something playing as I watch my everyday face, literally disappear in the mirror in front of me…replaced by this new being who has a story they need to share with a couple hundred people out there.
Two of the songs on the list so far, are the launching pad of where I’m coming from, and what the character’s journey means to me. We are sisters in a lot of ways, but I think her core of cores is one part love, and one part shame.
…Themes you can’t escape no matter how hard you fight them.
And I ought to know.
I’ve got your back, kid.
