***”PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT” AT WATERFRONT PLAYHOUSE…MARCH 11-14 THIS WEEK…. We were at the amazing and fabulous Opening of this Musical on May 5  and it was  a constant WOW!!!!!  EVERYONE in attendance had the time of their life!  From start to finish you were totally caught in a fabulous whirlwind of great music, dancing, glitter and glow!  Congrats to artistic director, Tom Thayer,  who did a superlative job directing.   He chose a super deluxe cast that knocked it out of the park with this superbly entertaining, hilarious, and sometimes poignant and moving Musical, that will have you smiling  and humming songs, long after you leave the theater!!!  Tickets are flying out of the box office so if you do not want to be disappointed,   get tix NOW at 305-294-5015 or go to
www.waterfrontplayhouse.org!  Congrats to Michael Boyer on the most magical sets…..musical director, Michael Fauss and his terrific musicians….awesome choreography by Carolyn Cooper, who also starred in the show (and stole the show as Shirley!)…. The cast was over the top sensational…. Dave Bootle was divine…..and Christopher Peterson was sublime…..and he created all of the seemingly hundreds of over-the-top Costumes which were GLORIOUS!!!!!  Others who are great in major roles are the talented Connor Cook and the always beloved, David Black, who never disappoints (He garnered applause just walking on stage!) …..The Ensemble was about the best I have ever seen onstage…. and how Carolyn Cooper got them to perform so many challenging dances blows my mind!  The remainder of the cast, having so much fun onstage, are Belle Jampol, *Lauren Thompson, Jake Furguson, *Rhett Kalman, *Donavan Pavlicek, *James Harcup, Aaron Duclos, DJ Mills, *Arthur Crocker, Tori Gregg, Sabrina Fosse, Nana Tatebayashi, Ervin Tumm, and Kelci Grooms.  This gifted ensemble play multiple roles and have what seems like a zillion costume changes.  The audience had the time of their life and the raves were all well-deserved.  Many told me they were going home and getting tickets for another night so they could enjoy it once again.  (We have tix for two more nights, by the way!!!) I also want to give a special mention to  Stage Mgr., Trish Manley….house mgr., Wendy Allen, box office mgr., Debra Falciani and the great crew!  Bravo to all!  (Note * were given to all onstage who sang for me for Aqua Idol!!!  I was a proud ‘Mother’!!!)

*** THE PISCES PERSONALITY….FEBRUARY 20 THRU MARCH 20TH ***

This is either the sign of the saint or the sinner…or BOTH rolled into one! The symbol of Pisces are two fish swimming in different directions….and this describes the way Pisces can hit the heights or sink to the lowest depths. It’s a sign of extremes. Pisceans often come off as ‘otherworldly’….they are swayed by their emotions. The result is that Pisces is the sign of the Dreamer…the Visionary…the Saint! One of the most outstanding attributes of a Piscean is their kindness. They have a bottomless reservoir of compassion for others, even when they suspect they are being conned by them. They work hard for their favorite charities or local good causes….though you may not know anything about it as they don’t like advertising their good works. Many Pisceans say they go through life as in a dream, drifting and floating and at the mercy of whatever fate has to offer them. They have a great capacity to show emotion, and are easily moved to tears by TV shows that present suffering. They also struggle to face up to harsh reality. They hate unpleasant situations, harsh facts, and confrontations. They hate the awfulness of what is in the news….preferring to look at the world through rose colored glasses. They can actually deceive themselves into thinking things are better than they really are. They wear their heart on their sleeve, and what a huge heart they have!

They are born romantics, but that makes them very sensitive to hurt and pain. They pour out their affection to their favorite people. Most Pisceans are faithful…but some have a big capacity for deception and may be juggling a string of lovers! They see the best in others, which is why they have so many admirers. However, it also puts them at risk of potential heartbreak because it makes them blind to a loved one’s failings. The best signs for a Pisces are Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio, Libra, and Capricorn.

Pisceans are drawn to professions that are incredibly glamorous and artistic or those involving service to others. They are interested in careers as actors, photographers, dancers, designers, the cosmetic industry, and fashion. Many devote their lives to looking after others especially in hospitals, prisons and hospices. They can be totally self-sacrificing. They may also be attracted to the religious or contemplative life. Needless to say many are also living on the wrong side of the law. The best signs for a Piscean are Libra….Scorpio….Cancer and another Pisces.

WE LOVE OUR PISCES FRIENDS & FAMILY MEMBERS & WISH THEM A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!
