Want an audition? Book a trip!

Last year I was supposed to be in Cuba for two weeks, but had to come back early because the Maria callbacks fell in the second week. This year I booked a trip to New York City from May 3rd-10th, but have just found out I have a callback I don't want to miss on the 4th.

Changing travel plans can be tricky, but it's nice to know that if I'm having a slow year I have only to book a trip and suddenly I will be popular.

I'm down to the last three days of my Smile tour of Extraordinary. What a rewarding and unique experience. Yesterday we performed in a real theatre and were so giddy about it you'd think we'd never performed on a stage before. Usually, because we travel to seniors' residences, we perform in small rooms that aren't designed to house theatre . But that is part of the charm of the Smile experience: every venue is different and you never know what to expect. That said, it was nice to perform on the beautiful stage at the Algonquin Theatre in Huntsville yesterday. I also enjoyed my post-show Bacio gelato. Anything that involves chocolate, nuts and ice cream is okay by me.

That's wonderful for your career, Alison. I'm very happy for you.

Except next time I think I'll let you book your trip first, wait a few weeks, THEN book mine.
