Happy Birthday to Me!

I had a pretty awesome birthday celebration last week: cupcakes and champagne at rehearsal for Burning.

Spent much of school vacation week in New York working with this terrific group of folks. Now back in Boston, where Housekeeper team is back from break and going full steam ahead toward production week.

I’m feeling kinda giddy.
