The show must go on... break a leg.... and all that jazz
This group of women take this recital seriously. They start learning their routines on the first day of class. I remember thinking how LONG it was when the Queen was on the stage the first time around. Now that we are on our fourth year, it gets longer. And longer. And loooooooongggggger.
It was especially long tonight because...
The co-director of the business ... the daughter of the owner .... fell on some straw that was being used as prop right at the beginning of rehearsal. Boom. She went down. Crack. Went her arm.
Had to call EMS and take her out on a stretcher.
Now, I think the stretcher might have been stretch ... a little dramatic. I would have scooped her butt off the floor and taken her to the hospital.
But the show went on. Literally. Instead of going to the hospital with her daughter, the mother/owner stayed. The entire night.
We were there for FOUR hours. Four, people.
Tomorrow night ... is going to be ugly.
