I had my first true rehearsal with my artistic team yesterday for Out Of Costume and guys, I am JAZZED!!!! My creative team is AMAZING!!!!! I'm freaking excited for my show!
Honestly, my favorite thing about this whole process, other than the fact I get to challenge myself by doing something I've never done before, is being surrounded by such incredibly talented artists who I love to work with and who I trust artistically without question. We are having so much fun! Cause' let's be real, as elated as I am to do this, it's a daunting and scary undertaking.
But I am proud of the work we are creating. It will continually evolve until opening night. I really do hope to see all of you in the theatre.
About the show:
You know her as the booming voice of The Witch in Into the Woods, the hair-impaired Daphna in Bad Jews, the passionate wife of Leo Frank in Parade and the quirky half of the couple in The Last Five Years. Now, one of this area's favorite and most versatile performers is getting "out of costume" for a premiere event at JCC CenterStage.
Finally, Janine Mercandetti sheds her theatre skin in her first ever cabaret performance! No quick changes, no huge wigs, no outrageous characters or costumes. Just fantastic music from a woman with a heart, soul, and voice that will rock your New Year’s Eve! End 2015 at the JCC with Janine. You’ll be ready to greet 2016 with a song in your heart and a dream in your soul!
With special guest star Mrs. Kasha Davis from Ru Paul's Drag Race.
