Glamazon Jessica is a suburban girl who left a quiet New Jersey town to pursue her dream of becoming a journalist. Fri I left my house at 7:30am with poeks to go to Canadaway or Fredonia as it is now known.
I'm looking out my window and can see the friggin' Verrazano Bridge from here in Bklyn Heights.
The food tray and plates are red, the airline peeps wear bright colors of yellow or green, pink and purple, red and white, etc etc. We landed in Thailand around 4pm on June 1st and had a cigarette, got a little buzzed from it and jumped into a cab. After we saw the Reclining Buddha and walked around a bit we made our way to the Grand Palace by following some other tourists who walked REALLY REALLY slow.
Once upon a time there was a giant king (called Tosakan) on the island of Lanka who won a battle against the god Indra and then sought to achieve the rule of the whole world. Vishnu is reincarnated as Prince Rama (Phra Ram), son of the mighty King Tosarot of Ayuthaya. Even in the seclusion of their forest retreat, however, Sita's beauty does not go unnoticed, and the evil giant King Tosakan decides to lure her way from Rama. All of them now return to Ayuthaya, where the unlawful king, the son of the envious concubine, resigns and Rama again becomes king. In the park we saw some kids and probably their teacher playing traditional sounding music and singing the words in thai and then english. We changed our clothes and walked over to the restaurant section to eat- it was closed to the general public but open for guests. We booked our transportation through AS Travel for Tiger Temple and bummed about till dinner time.
We had a bathroom where the toilet wasn't a flush, instead you had a big bin of water - like a big sink and a pail. Originally we had booked the transportation to go to the National Park and see the Erawan Falls in the morning and then Tiger Temple in the afternoon but the others who were going to be part of that trip changed their minds. That night in one of the other rooms- some women from I think AU - started laughing and screeching. If you look at that pic, you'll see a piece of metal running down the middle of the tracks for people to walk on- looks ok right?
1: give you camera to one guide, another holds your hands and escorts from lazy tired tiger to lazy tired tiger - you get about 30 seconds to a minute with each tiger - your pic is taken and you move onto the next.
2: pay 1000 baht=30 bucks - you get to do option 1 and have a tiger's big bony head placed in your lap for a pic.
After J and I got to pet the tigers we watched them and then walked with the last one back to their cages.
The other passengers with us on the truck were from England and Holland, 2 guys, both had been travelling for weeks. We stayed in a guesthouse that was super cheap, right around the corner from the skytrain stop and across the street from the mall.
We ended up eating dinner in the MBK mall - cuz we just couldn't find any local place that had stuff we could order. We walked around MBK till about 9pm and then watched some breakdancers on the overpass which brought you from one side of th street to the other.
Makes me want to start playing with my music applications again and I moved the M*Audio so it's easier to access and plug my guitar into. The following post was contributed by Justin Gottlieb who is the founder and creative director of Social Shark NYC.
When first pursuing a woman, one of the most difficult things to gauge is: How often do you contact her?
Sparkology is an elite, exclusive dating experience serving young professionals in the cosmopolitan dating scene. Dolce Vita (the brand behind some of my favorite shoes) is closing down its Elizabeth Street location in late May. The next project was a reading of an exciting new piece called Reigniting Embers, by Benjamin James Halstead and Patty Weinstein. We closed Show Boat in late September, and the majority of our cast filtered back to NYC to join the ranks of actors seeking work.
After a great vacation in mid-May, I headed up to the Goodspeed Opera House in Connecticut for the summer to do a production of Show Boat. After only a week back from tour, an opportunity came out of nowhere to guest-artist teach at Nebraska Weslayan University for a week. I met some talented eager young performers, and I wish them well as they continue to train or begin their careers. After Nebraska, and a trip to my own alma mater to attend a wedding where I saw friends I had not seen in almost 20 years, I returned to NYC and hit the auditions again. After a very slow time in the biz during November, I got a call to go out as a temporary replacement for 8 weeks on the Broadway National Tour of South Pacific. Ii?? am excited to be doing a play, and in beautiful Vermont during the height of New England autumn: Amadeus, at Northern Stage.
As for dancing down to my skivvies in front of thousands of people, well, after doing The Full Monty, this was easy! On July 15th, the boys of South Pacific sang a€?Nothing Like A Damea€? at the annual Broadway in Bryant Park concert. On Monday, March 15th, I participated in the chorus of composer Stephen Sondheima€™s 80th Birthday Concert performed at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center. On Thursday night, the producers and director of South Pacific called a company meeting and told us that the show would have its final performance on August 22, 2010. So here we are in the peak (slump?) of the low season for Broadway: the deadly early February weeks post-holiday and pre-Spring Break. I am excited to be doing a play, and in beautiful Vermont during the height of New England autumn: Amadeus, at Northern Stage. Being a swing, I have an added challenge of never knowing when my last show really is.A  Ia€™ve tried to take in the last few shows I was on as if it were my last.
In late June, I participated for the first time in the annual Broadway burlesque fundraiser: Broadway Bares, now in its 20th Season.
On Monday February 22nd, I performed in a benefit concert for Broadway Cares called Broadway Backwards 5, where men sing womena€™s Broadway songs, and vice versa. After landing an internship in the fashion closet at Marie Claire, she somehow ended up in the wonderful world of fashion.
Our plane left at 12:40pm (give or take a few min) and we were in the last row, in the middle aisle in big pink and purple seats. Our first place- a guesthouse in Banglamphu- an area that seems to have a lot of travelers who are of the backpacking mentality, lots of street vendors, and lots of random places to sit, drink, eat, and watch the world go by. We got ready, got breakfast and walked up to the Express boats to go to the Grand Palace and Wat Pho. It's a demon holding up part of the chedi and is a character in the "Ramayana." The tale was adapted and changed somewhat when Rama I and II rewrote it and it became known as the Ramakien. The gods knew that only a mortal man would be able to stop the invulnerable giant and sent the god Vishnu down to earth. Rama and his faithful brother and friend Lakshman (Phra Lak) become famous heroes and Rama is appointed by his father as successor to the throne of Ayuthaya. When it turns out that Rama and his followers are going to be victorious, however, the evil giant Tosakan manages to sneak out of the palace and takes lovely Sita with him.
Everybody could be happy now, but Rama is still in doubt about Sita, who is expecting a child.
After a small rest and shower - we went and ate a late lunch from one of the street vendors. J was getting more worn out than I was and we ended up in the park in the sun, which wasn't really a good idea but we felt better after a while.
We walked down this one thin street looking for a place to eat that was in the guidebook, however we didn't know it was just a vendor and thought it was a restaurant.
It wasn't air conditioned but you know- the place was sooo freakin' nice I kind of didn't care and figured we'd just deal. Well, there was two way traffic and some people were walking on the unstable water logged wood planks on the side- like me- and feeling the wood bend and stuff. They sleep in these fairly big cement cages at night to protect them and probably to ensure that they don't leave the place. So we took our time the next morning - ate, hung around and played with the puppy some more - packed up and made our way back to the bus station.
There were 2 stations within a block of each other- one was first class, the other was the main station. It was J's idea to try and stay in a different area - preferably one near the skytrain to cut down on taxi rides.
We had a lizard in our room - it was awfully cute and hid from us the whole time we were there. Every woman has their number of Preferred Text or Call Occurrences (PTCO) over a period of time. Now throw in the fact that the number of PTCO can change based on her level of attraction to a guy, her personal situation, how she met you, and her mood that day. That number is a fluid equation filled with human emoticons that simply has too many variables to be predicted.


The company is revolutionizing an industry fraught with low standards and dirty business practices by respecting members' busy lives and upholding their high dating standards. With the weather and my social calendar heating up, I felt like now was a great time to bring that old thing back! It was performed at the Tisch school at NYU and included two very talented actors and myself. I didna€™t think some were a good match for me, and others didna€™t think I was right for their office. Goodspeed is a two-time Tony Award winning regional theater that dedicates itself to classic American musical theater. I guess I just like the adventure of discovering new cities, finding a great coffee shop or pub, the after-show unwind with fellow cast, and the sightseeing. Having had a nice 3 month break from the Broadway production, I find myself pretty excited to be hitting the road with the show. Ia€™ve spent some autumns in Connecticut, and the color even farther north is even more amazing in the Vermont mountains. During a short trip to Missouri for a family wedding, I had a chance to speak to the Drama Club at the high school where I attended, North County High School. Nearing the end of something you have spent several years of your life with, you start emotionally saying goodbye, you take pictures, you feel happy, sad, excited, bittersweet, and a little apprehensive.
Broadway Bares presents Broadwaya€™s sexiest performers in a sort of burlesque show- one of the most popular events in New York City. We had a few cast changes in the ensemble of South Pacific, and our original Captain Bracket (Skip Sudduth) has returned.
It was star studded: Florence Henderson hosted, and it included Broadway stars Robert Cuccioli, Ann Harada, Julia Murney, Gary Beach, Len Cariou, Lee Roy Reams, Tonya Pinkins, Aaron Lazar, Douglas Sills, Raul Esparza, Lea Salonga, Seth Rudetsky, and Tituss Burgess.
I performed in 6 numbers, and worked closely with Florence Henderson, Gary Beach, and Douglas Sills. The cast has been hearing rumors since before the holidays that we would probably run until the end of the summer, so this did not come as a shock to anyone. Nearing the end of something you have spent several years of your life with, you start emotionally saying goodbye, you take pictures, you feel happy, sad, excited, bittersweet, andA  a little apprehensive.
Thai Airways has colorful seats and purple blankets, pillows, and purple printouts about their menu. We took a walk that night and got some water, ate foods, and decided what to do for the next day.
It's all plaster in gold coating, has 108 images on its feet in mother of pearl showing the lakshanas - helps distinguish who is the true Buddha.
I think we saw about 60% of the stuff here but we were slowly dying from the heat and humidity so we had to retreat to a store outside of the palace where we sat in front of the AC and drank waters slowly.
The tales of the Ramakien are similar to those of the Ramayana, though transferred to the topography and culture of Ayutthaya, where the avatar of Phra Narai (the Thai incarnation of Vishnu, who's also known as Narayan) is reborn as Phra Ram. When Rama manages to win beautiful and chaste Princess Sita as his wife, their happiness seems complete. I suppose it's like seeing the Stations of the Cross in a Catholic church and not understanding why this dude is carrying a cross and what each station depicts. One part of the complex had a shrine with little buddhas covered in gold that were flaking off, the paint was coming off. We gave it another half hour of walking around the market and then caught a taxi to Chinatown to eat. Then it started raining and J got annoyed at the crowds, rain, and overall mess we'd gotten ourselves into.
We also walked by some guys playing what looked like Go, with their chipmunk hanging out on the table. Apple guest house isn't on the water but it's the one that offered cooking classes, had its own restaurant, massage, and tours.
Another modded taxi truck drove by at some point and there were guys holding onto the canopy railings and standing on the bumper.
I mean I think in some ways we got a lot of days off- holidays and stuff - but yeah, the notion that you could save your whole vacation and travel for 4 weeks is pretty awesome. We ended up taking a 2nd class bus back to Bangkok - took about 45 minutes longer, no bathroom, and seats were worn out. Some of the more independent women may only like to get texts once or twice a week from a guy that is “courting” them.
So, maybe she is really into you and with every little envelope that pops up on her phone with your name under it, jubilation and joy runs through her veins warming her heart. However, more often than not, you can lose a woman’s interest by being too available, and yes that does include texts. There will be a live painting exhibit, prizes for best dressed, specialty cocktails and more. In April and May, I did a lovely short run of a musical called The Butterfly, based on the book by Patricia Polacco, produced by Making Books Sing. We performed at the Al Hirschfeld Theater on 45th Street, where How To Succeed in Business is playing six nights a week.
The opera house didna€™t experience wind damage, although there were downed trees in the area. This is my fifth production up here, having previously done productions of Brigadoon and A Little Night Music (2001), King of Hearts (2002), and 1776 (2007).
From December 14th through the holidays until mid-January, the tour of South Pacific played The Kennedy Center in Washington DC for 5 weeks. Ia€™m particularly excited to be spending a month in Washington DC playing the Kennedy Center, and then a week in Ft. The PBS Broadcast a€?Live At Lincoln Centera€? of the musical aired on August 18th, the Wednesday before. It was great to meet these eager young artists who are just now discovering the world of acting. It was a fun, if hot afternoon, and most likely the last public event our cast will perform before the live televised performance on August 18th, and before we close. Luckily theya€™d seen most the touristy stuff a few years ago, so they did museums and indoor stuff during the torrential freezing rains. Myself along with 300 other Broadway performers sang in the eveninga€™s finale song: a€?Sundaya€? from Sondheima€™s musical Sunday In The Park with George. It was held at our theater, so I was very comfortable in the environmenta€¦but with over 50 different chorus members, and celebrities in every hallway.
We knew it wouldna€™t last forever, and the show has already run longer than anyone expected. The crowds for South Pacific were a little lower over the holiday season than expected, but that was true of the entire Broadway community, not just our show. We performed at the Al Hirschfeld Theater on 45th Street, where How To Succeed in Business is playing six nights a week.A  I performed in BB5 two years ago, working with Florence Henderson and Richard Kind and other celebs. Chances are slim but not impossible that I could be on sometime during the last two weeks - but it feels over for me. On any given day, you'll find Glamazon Jessica blogging like a madwoman, adding to her collection of Louboutins, interviewing celebs and sneaking off to red carpet events---all while having a blast. However, an envious concubine of King Tosarot convinces him to favor her son and to disinherit Prince Rama. Lakshman, however, does not obey and brings Sita instead back to the hermit in the jungle where she and Rama spent fourteen years during Rama's exile. People were making offerings, lighting incense, and would then dab the flaking buddha with a tissue and then place the tissue on their head- similar to someone blessing themselves with holy water.
The noodles weren't too soft, the taste was fresh, and a cat came over to us crying for some food. It looked like they had a pet chipmunk, it had a little hamster cage and was sitting on top of it.
Other women may want assurance of a man’s interest by way of more frequent texts and calls. On the other hand, if she has a lot going on in her personal life (sick family member, lingering ex-boyfriend, problems at work etc.), maybe your texts are a burden.
Auditions were fairly plentiful in February, and I even booked a short-running off-Broadway gig at the Mint called a€?The Butterflya€™ for April. I spent the next two months interviewing various agents, going to open calls, and working on self-generated projects. You have to know what you are looking for (not to take the first thing that comes along), and its helpful to have a thick skin. This production of Show Boat is garnering interest because a 25 person cast of this show in a space as limiting as the historic opera house seems un-produceable. Broadway Cares is now the #1 charity organization in the country for AIDS research as well as helping to fight breast & ovarian cancer. It was a more subtle, less swanky affair than the 1 Year Anniversary- but still incredibly generous of Lincoln Center. I could certainly pinpoint specifics, but mostly it was just a general feeling that I needed to move on. It certainly is a whole new ball game, not just for me, but for the industry as a whole as the economy has evolved, and is still evolving. The whole experience has been magical, and we are all daily thankful to be a part of such a successful production with the incredible organization Lincoln Center.


This year, we had Betty Buckley, George Takai, Mad Mena€™s Bryan Batt and Fraziera€™s Dan Butler among others.
Behind the Reclining Buddha are 108 bowls where people were dropping money into - a sign of good luck.
Rama, Sita, and the faithful Lakshman are expelled from the royal palace and have to flee into the jungle where they spend the next fourteen years hidden in a hermitage. That allows Prince Rama to successfully fight (in an exhausting seven day battle) and finally kill the giant and to win Sita back - although in the beginning he does not believe in Sita's faithfulness and she must undergo a trial of fire to prove her chastity.
There she gives birth to a son and the hermit, a powerful magician, forms a twin brother of the child and teaches both arts and mystics. I had to pet a cat I saw- this happy chubby black one that purred when I scratched its chin. Unfortunately our screen door didn't close tightly enough and there were gaps where bugs would get into the room - so we couldn't leave the door open for air to come in. Perhaps she’s upset and the triple header text combo you just sent her made her delete your number in fit of rage.
The piece is a bit of an a€?Anne Franka€? story, taking place in France during that countrya€™s Nazi occupation. Agents may pass on you for various reasons: they represent predominantly young talent, or they may have an actor just like you already in their a€?stablea€™. Our director Rob Ruggiero has been given artistic freedom by the Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization to reconstruct the show for the space. I wona€™t lie, it was nice to have the extra nights off at home, even if it was blizzarding outside.
We then play Newark (where I can commute from my own home in NYC), then a final two weeks in Cleveland. Many of them had never really seen professional theater, but it was nice to see that spark in their eyes. My goal has been to be adaptable to that evolution, and ready myself for the new career roads that lie ahead.
By the time it ends, South Pacific will have played 1000 performances and 37 previews, making it the longest-running Broadway revival of any of the Rodgers & Hammerstein musicals. But we still are holding strong, with an expected drop during the bleak next 2 winter months before the Spring Break-ers arrive in March.
It was sort of odd - when we were given things to drink or eat she'd come out of the blanket like a bear from a cave and looked more and more disheveled each time. I knew going back to the guesthouse would make me too lazy to get out and do something later.
Getting into the tuk tuk I slammed my knee on the metal side and later it turned into a nice purple bruise. The next morning the women were at breakfast and talking about it with their friends- looked like a large group had decided to vacation together - they were describing the whole thing.
As much as the front desk woman tried to keep hookers out- I suppose there's only so much you can do.
The unique challenge for me in this play was playing two parts completely opposite of each other - that of the Nazi antagonist Walter, and of the benevolent Jewish father Hoffman. Ia€™m confident in what I have to offer, so it was really a matter of interviewing until the right match happened. As economic times make smaller shows more attractive for regional producing organizations, a 25 person Show Boat should be of great interest if it proves a success.
This area is very theater savvy, and people recognize the actors at restaurants, at the gym, etc. I wish them all well in their acting endeavors, and expect to hear of great successes from them. So after having a chance at a stable schedule in a Broadway show, when the end comes, it feels big.
Actors can be amazing performers onstage, and be terrible auditioners, or terrific auditioners and be awful onstage. Wea€™ve still been having decent crowds before now, and we expect it to go back up in a few weeks. Since my building is a twin building - there's a walkway on the roof that connects the my building to the twin one and I take the elevator there. At one point she was sleeping with her head on the seat and her legs on the floor, in a kneeling position. After a final battle with the remaining rebel giants, Rama's mission is fulfilled and he returns to heaven. Once the rain ended -- big big snails were out and about, lizards were on the outer walls, and worms. At first they thought it was a lizard and two of them stepped out of the room to look at it- meaning, they opened the screen door that the scorpion was attached to.
That's the one thing I wish I would have done but I am pretty satisfied and happy to have gotten the chance to see a really peaceful sanctuary and touch tigers.
It's weird, the room was a decent size, the AC was fine if not a tad bit cold - but there was something sort of lacking about this place compared to the other one we stayed in the first few days. Both were significant roles that required much character work in order to make each one transformative and different than the other. We will have our first performance on July 1st, and I have to say, it looks like its going to be a great show. DC because its a theater town and the military aspect of our show appealed to them, and Fort Myers no doubt because of the general age of the audience many of whom remembers WWII personally.
I played the same theater (the Palace - see left) here in Cleveland a decade ago on the Parade national tour.
I have not been on tour since 2003 with The Sound of Music, and Ia€™m eager for the adventure. We all know everything on the internet isna€™t accurate, but researching time period, and listening on YouTube to a particular accent (Italian for my character), or music (Mozart, obviously, and some of Salieri and other composers of the late 1700a€™s) has proven invaluable.
Ia€™ve known Achilles socially for a couple years, and Ia€™ve been impressed with how he represents his clients. Both were significant roles that required much character work in order to make each one transformative and different than the other.A  Playing a Nazi (which I have done once before in The Sound of Music) always presents a unique challenge - being true to the character, knowing that what your character thinks he is doing is a€?righta€?, and fighting against becoming an evil caricature. The murals i believe are painted onto the walls like a fresco thing - and seem to be under constant repair. I was ready for a change and ready to do something creatively different than being a swing.
Laura is universally loved by our cast and it was really tough to say goodbye to her 2 weeks before we close. A tow truck guy pulled in and jumped the car which started it but after about 5 minutes it died again. The opera house sits alongside the beautiful Connecticut River, a perfect setting for the show. The backstage is way too small but therea€™s a romanticism to the drafty stairways and cramped hallways. So with a final farewell with a lovely closing party atop the Empire Hotel, we all parted ways. The inside of the theater has a horseshoe-shaped balcony around a house that has a remarkable resemblance to the inside of an actual show boat. It was also hot - of course- and that took its toll on us after a while but I wanted to see it all. The feel of the grand old opera house built in 1876, about a decade before the our show takes place should add an extra bit of authenticity for our audience. Its at times like this that it helps to remember whether its 1 or 1,000 people in the audience, they have paid their money to be entertained, to take a journey, to escape from their world for 3 hours - and its our job to give it to them.
But therea€™s something about those old theaters that brings out the romantic idea of a tour. But therea€™s something about thoseA  old theaters that brings out the romantic idea of a tour. The lion has a thought bubble that reads "What?" and on the back the snail says, "I am snail!" Jen's is even odder.
There wasn't much of a town to see from this area and reminded me of the strip mall style that is common in NY and NJ.
Possibly common in all of America for all I know.Finally we got to Fredonia around 4pm and checked into The White Inn.
I don't think i've been that tired in a long time and I got sick.At the funeral home I had to step outside and puked.
I am like 90% sure that my year was the first super official year that kids could graduate with the minor.
I was good at falling down and rolling away - Judo - you spend a great deal of time rolling away and falling down.
