Now that I have had time to reflect and process, I can write this blog with a clear head and a better understanding of my birthday. I’m not afraid to say it, but turning 35 has been quite the adventure. Not that the day was an adventure, but just the journey from 34 to 35. Suffice it to say, I’m a late bloomer! After graduating from high school, I floundered around trying to find myself like most Generation X’ers.
But in this last year, I’ve accomplished several life changing things. Graduating from college was something I thought I would never be able to do. I’ve been blessed to have that opportunity. I’m not going to go into a mushy post, I’ll save that for another day, but I will say this. Never Give Up, the immortal words of John Cena! Yes, I’m a wrestling fan, don’t judge me!
I’m looking forward to what the next year has in store for me. In the meantime, I’m in rehearsal for “The Hound of the Baskervilles” at Port Tobacco Players and “Ragtime” with The College of Southern Maryland.
Happy Birthday To Me. August 19th will forever be my day of celebration! I’m happy to have friends that never fail to surprise me and to show me that I’m loved. Thank you guys for always being there for me.
I'm a guy blogging about what he loves to do, theatre. Also, I may post about other things, like shows I see, events I go to, stuff like that! Or just random musings and life updates. Granted, I'll have to keep up with it. I'll hold myself to that!
If nothing else, the performance of Kenneth L. Waters, Jr. make this a must-see experience. Waters portrays Mitch, the “comfort counselor.” Mitch is completing his community service hours by performing this job at the Bee. Waters was so convincing that I first wondered if he was just really this type of character in real life. The major brilliance of the performance by Waters is fully revealed when he also play the one of fathers to one of the characters. Waters transforms from knife-wielding thug to cake-baking nurturer. Waters even further shows his amazing technique and skill when he briefly plays a different character’s father and just as seamlessly transforms into a third, completely different character. Waters demonstrated strong vocals and he has an especially rich and pleasing tone. Overall, one of the best performances that I have seen in local theater." - a review on 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee with Tantallon Players from Showbiz Radio
