As I entered her house I handed her a bottle of Fireball whiskey and jokingly said, "Let's all drink a shot each time we are nominated."
And then we sat around her living room and waited.
We drank our first shot when we were nominated for best sound design.
And our next for best lighting design.
Then we were nominated for best stage management.
Then best actor.
Then two for best actress.
Then best musical direction.
THEN BEST DIRECTOR.
THEN BEST MUSICAL!!!!
Needless to say, I was pretty drunk by the end of the night. And pretty damn happy!
The awards ceremony will take place at the end of August. Honestly, just being recognized in this way is enough. I am so excited!
