Kansas City Here I Come

Because of the miracles of modern technology, when this publishes, I will be packing my bags in Athens to head to the airport. I’ll jet to London for a quick overnight and maybe a spin on the Eye, then I’ll be trekking back to the great state of Texas for exactly 40 hours before I hop in my car and head north.

Goodness, I’m tired just thinking about it.

BUT

I’m so happy to be heading back to one of my favorite towns in the world to work in one of my favorite places!

I won’t actually be working with babies this size, but I love this photo and I think it perfectly sums up how I feel about the Coterie Theatre.

 

 

I’ll be in KC for about 3 1/2 weeks to Direct Shrek The Musical JR at MCC Longview with the Coterie Theatre AND to work with the Master Class students on their Summer Showcase.

 

I feel so lucky that the good people at the Coterie trust me and love me enough to hire me back each summer and give me the chance to play and create and teach.
It sure made moving away a lot easier, knowing that I was maintaining relationships and contracts there.

While I have to admit, I’ve been a little pre-occupied with Greece,  I have been spending a some time day- dreaming about all the things I want to do in Kansas City .
Of course, I will be working 6 days a week, but I’m sure I can manage some time for fun.

I want to
*Go to the Nelson
*Go to Loose Park
*Go to a Royals Game
*Eat at Oklahoma Joe’s
*Eat at Lulu’s and Cafe Gratitude
*Go to the River Market
*See everyone I love and miss dearly
*Swim at Woodside
*See lots of live music and theatre
*Go to Grinders and the Crossroads
*Take so many yoga classes! Especially at Boulevard Yoga, Karma Tribe Yoga, and The Nelson Atkins

***and so so much more I can’t even think of.

 

I love this town. I love it so much. I love it’s  energy and the heat. I love it’s heart and dirty rivers. I’m excited for the opportunity to stretch and flex my creative muscles and pretend like I’m in any way qualified to direct a musical. And of course you know I’m going to sneak a little yoga magic in for these Twisted Teens.

 

Help me out though.

What else should I add to my list ya’ll?

 

 

Well, I might take a plane; I might take a train
But if I have to walk, I’m going just the same
I’m going to Kansas City
Kansas City here I come
