On Broadway, there is the tradition of shows that are currently in production sending “Happy Opening Night!” letters to a show when it opens. This tradition has not yet made its way to Chicago; there are anywhere from 5-10 shows opening each week and sending a letter to each one would be time-consuming and costly.  Nevertheless, I’m hoping to help establish that tradition here.  I have decided to send out two “Happy Opening Night!” letters a week from now until Beautiful Thing opens in January.  These shows will be picked at random, unless someone within our production would like us to send one to a particular show.  

Up first is Kinky Boots, which opens today.  We all signed the letter at our rehearsal last night and I both faxed and sent the hard copy via snail mail to the theater.  But may I say here as well, happy opening from the cast and crew of Beautiful Thing! 

(**I must apologize to my castmate Patrick Rybarczyk, who did not get a chance to sign the letter.  We were supposed to do this at our rehearsal on Saturday, but I forgot.)

Until next time, have a beautiful day!
