Rudolph: A Backstage Video Blog

Peter Mavrik of Radio Peter (and fellow cast member of the recently-closed "Rudolph the Red-Hosed Reindeer") posted this video blog this morning chronicling the last performance. See us all in our backstage attire! (Except me--I already had the damned suit on.)

I was thoroughly sick of being Santa by this time (GOD, he was hateful!), and you could see it in my reaction here. (It was meant in humor, but I was completely worn out by this time--plus we had set strike to do right afterwards, and I had a drive and gig to look forward to the next day). I didn't have the same last-day-choke-up that I got last year when it was over, probably because of all that's been going on.

Around 8 minutes in, you can see the result of my first makeup-buying expedition. This can be a disaster if you don't know which shade to buy (just FYI, never go for the "caramel" or even "light tan" varieties--if you have my coloring, stick to the ones with names like "arctic chill," "frosty," "winter pale" or "mortician's delight").

Anyway, enjoy! Thanks, Peter...

Yes, in that "Caryl Chessman" kind of way, no doubt...I've almost given up hope of any other sort.

Aaron - But you are famous. Hell, THE JOANS are going to be - - if they aren't already - - the hottest band in Chicago. They are THE band! Love you. Love them!

Thanks Stephen! I do enjoy The Joans most of all, really. We love you back!

I thoroughly enjoyed "Lyle," by the way. I'm going to come and see it again, once I finish my box of anti-little-kid garlic pills. (I want a whole row to MYSELF! :-))
