Lisa: I don't know how I can ever wait to see

Sorry if I've been a bit one-note, but practicing three days a week has sort of kept the play at the forefront of my mind. Anyway, we open this weekend, so it will all be over soon enough.

The shirt is from Steve & Barry's, and I made the skirt myself using this pattern. The humongous, tulle-topped hat is my favorite of the ones I made. It's not so great for tight backstage quarters, but there's a certain satisfaction in forcing your stage husband to bend down and peer under the brim in order to sing into your face.

[Edited to add a shot of the hat in action. It is fully three heads wide.]

Can we have a tea party with your hats?

I was in "The Music Man" about 20 years ago -- and I even had a line.

During the opening scene, when all the salesmen are talking to the cadence of the train, two guys are reading newspapers, and deliver these lines:

Guy 1: Look, whaddaya talk, whaddaya talk, whaddaya talk, whaddaya talk, whaddaya talk?
Guy 2: Where do you get it?
Guy 1: Whaddaya talk?

I was Guy 2.

That's right, I got to say "Where do you get it?" every night for two weeks.

Try not to swoon at my fame.
