Latest Update From Rachel!!!!!
Hi there everyone! Sorry its taken me an age from my last blog but as i'm sure you know its been a mammoth month! So where do i start? Well lets start at the beginning of this week! AGGGHHHHHHHH! was exactly my feeling at 7.30 Monday night!
Thinking back at it now makes me laugh-pacing back stage, going over my lines even thinking "I DON'T KNOW THEM!" And no one but no one can help me now! So i eventually get out there and the first thing i think is "Why are the lights pink?. . . . . stop thinking about the lights woman!" then everything just goes in slow motion for rest of the show! But I relaxed and really got into it and now its Friday and i'm totally loving every minute of being on there. And which part do you prefer? I hear you cry-well cant really decide but Meat is a part very close to my heart and I'm very lucky to do it every night and get to call her my own-lets put it that way!
Now from one accomplishment to well. . . .not such a one! Guys if you don't know already-yes I am the West ends Weakest link!!! Its aired over Christmas sometime but blink and miss me-don't think that needs any more explaining, does it! But we had lots of laughs and the rest of the guys were great fun and really up for a laugh and Ann was actually quite nice to me!!! Maybe thats because i gave her a WWRY Singing tooth brush! he he he!
And very briefly Phantom 2 workshop, well not much can be revealed but what a week! I was very kindly asked to play the part of Meg Giry again and boy is she a different person from Phantom 1! I had beautiful songs to sing and worked with some of the world's most amazing directors and performers-Jack O'Brien (Hair Spray, The Full Monty-Broadway) and the gorgeous Sierra Boggess who is currently playing the Little Mermaid on Broadway at the moment and who is just AMAZING!!!! So all to be revealed next year! Well I'll sign off but I'm sure I'll see most of you on Saturday night i hear? Great! Look forward to then. Lots of love and huge thanks for all the support (esp this week guys) Thank you x Rachel x
