I’m singing a wonderful character* in a brand new musical, An Extra Penny. I love the music, the story and the chance to work with a whole new group of people. I’m in North Carolina for the month, rehearsing every day, marking the changes to my script and counting in wild meters. I will write more as rehearsals go on, but I am thrilled to have completed a week here, near Raleigh, where it is steamy as all get-out and the iced tea is sweet unless you ask for another kind. And…I have never before been in a musical, always operas or concerts. It’s really fun to get to SPEAK lines…in English!
*a mother, of course, because altos always play moms.
