I eat a lot.... I'm always thinking of food. Especially during the show.... I know, I should be concentrating on what I'm doing, but after 12 yrs of doing this show, on and off, I have figured out a way to have it appear as though I am fully invested, and I am most of the time.... but I have to admit, I spend a lot of the second act thinking about where I'm going to eat after the show.... Sometimes when Michael Mc Elroy is singing the reprise so beautifully, and were all on stage in low lighting looking at him, he just looks like a big, tender and juicy roast chicken holding a coat like in the cartoons.
My second act duty: find a good place to eat in whatever city were in. I don't know what I would do without my iPhone.... It makes my mission so much easier. I'm sure it's pretty evident who my partners in crime are from the photos. I love touring with this cast, there are such foodies in the company! When taking the tour I was so worried about what it would be like touring as an adult. Last time I toured the States with Rent I was 23, single, unbearably skinny and couldn't gain a pound to save my life.... and had other things on my mind... Mischief! Now, touring as an adult is very different, especially when most of the cast are on the older side as well. We find most of our comfort in finding the best places to eat....and if not we've got our hot plates and pots and pans in our trunks to make sure were well fed. I basically tour with a mini kitchen. You open my trunk and it's ALL food and pans. Even my make-up kit has spices stowed away in it! If you ever see me come out the stage door on a Tuesday with bundles, now you know what all of that is.
So, I blog about food and my love for it, and the fun we have finding and eating it. Enjoy.....
