We thought our show was to be in the smaller Globe Theatre but it was in the big, 200 seater one with a large stage and all the cool things of a properly spec'ed theatre. Look at the amazing set! I love how different it looks in different lights.
Well, who was the star of this ensemble piece? Me? Hans? Lola? Nope. It was Chase, the Circus Dog. A rescue Pomeranian of extremely even temperament (a polite way of saying he simply can't be arsed doing anything but sit)
|Blue wash for mystery and magic|
|With the working lights on, it's still gorgeous! That's our amazing producer on stage talking to someone...Doug? Can't tell.|
|Chase!!! He is the cutest fluff ball and was amazing. He did NOTHING, which means Lola had to fake all his stunts and it was hilarious!|
|Dressing room selfie - I never got one with Hans - trouble with running around in your undies is there's nowhere to put a phone so I only took a couple.|
|I took this one to show Jack my eye makeup, which is the living embodiment (in my mind anyway) of the line from "Ne me quitte pas", which I translate as: "When evening falls, does not the dark make perfect love to the sunset's spark?"|
It was a beautiful, delightful, magical show and a huge tribute to our darling friend Lola Illusion.
I am really busy, I've had four shows this month already and one big one to go. The year is filling up, but who knows what will happen with this awful virus though. International travel is required later in the year but we can't book yet so we'll have to see what happens. I wish the world all the best with love xo.
