TT: Happy happy joy joy
The first preview of Satchmo at the Waldorf in New Haven went smoothly and satisfyingly. Yes, there were a couple of glitches, but nothing you would have noticed if you weren't already familiar with the show, and at the end the entire audience leaped to its feet and cheered wholeheartedly.
We have another six preview performances left before next Wednesday's press opening. No doubt we'll do a certain amount of tweaking between now and then--that's how it works--but I'm feeling good today.
I have a couple of shows to see in New York, so I won't be in New Haven again until Saturday afternoon. If you catch Satchmo in my absence, let me know how it went!
