a word from Chad…

…and the word is:

Acceptance.

i like to watch

now that we’re on broadway i get to have an assistant (Mike) but what’s really fun is having an understudy…his name is David and I watched him perform today and i was in heaven…
/s

the tv cameras were here today…

…filming us rehearse…interviewing us…we gave them a taste of the Real…

day six of rehearsal

STEW
ok,
so we didn’t exactly update the blog in what you could call a “daily” manner.

TOM
Ok, see you Tuesday…

TRIPP asks inappropriate question…

MIKE
Do you know why that is?

STEW
Yes, it is because blogs are unnatural. If it were an analog journal…actually, I don’t update those either.
And by the way, in ear monitors are great idea for the whole family.

MIKE
that’s true: parents could control the volume of their children…and guests.

STEW
Mike, what is wrong with your generation?

TUNE IN NEXT TIME TO GET MIKE’S ANSWER

first day of rehearsal

Hello,
this is the first in a daily – YES DAILY – series of internet communications with you, dear reader.

MIKE
Daily until when? Forever?

STEW
Yes.

does winter own a calendar?

the berlin snow having missed her christmas cue by a week comes in late and stumbling as if having partied all night spilling packages everywhere and with her usual sense of calender conscious bravado our seasonal drama queen makes her big entrance into the capital of the last century on new years day.

And its all Capra-esque right now.

the backyard
(see the back of guest host *)
looks like a glamorous movie star’s flat
from some 30s movie

Or like Iowa:
Everything is white

Mimi (my daughters cat) and I stare out onto the falling whiteness, hypnotized.
We share the same opinion of snow:
Its a miraculous inconvenience…

My daughter was supposed to have cleaned the cat box yesterday.
But Mimi prefers to go in the wild.
And right now its a big cold cat box out there.
And Mimi is ready to bust a move.

Besides, shes far more curious about snow than i am
She probably doesn’t even remember it from last year
…i do…

My daughter and her friends roamed the streets of Berlin last night
Freezing cold and deliriously happy
Just like me and mine did many years ago.

We start band rehearsals on Thursday.
I will go directly from Newark airport to the rehearsal hall.

My resolution is to be in a Broadway musical.
