NYC Cabarets!

Just finished reading the book "The Happiness Project" by Gretchen Rubin, and I have to recommend it to all of you. It is a very uplifting and just a fun book in general, and makes you kind of look at life with a little more perk even when stuff sucks sometimes. Now that I am done with that, I am starting my next book adventure. I am going to ready Harry Potter 1-7 all over again and I am so excited about it! Unless someone can throw a book recommendation at me to postpone the magic? Let me know.

Three days left in NYC until I take a little vacation back to my west coast. I am so happy. It is funny, I never realized how much I would miss the west coast until I moved here. I am spending four days at home and then about a week in LA for my birthday on August 7! It is going to be just the best time with my favorite people in the whole world.

Wanted to let you all know that I will be performing in a few cabarets in August both in New York City. One on August 16 that I posted about prior to this entry and the big one, VOULEZ-VOUS COUCHER AVEC MOI? A one night stand with five girls from “Spring Awakening”. Me, Krista Pioppi, Steffi D, Gabby Garza and Kayla Foster are coming together for a one night only cabaret about the greatness of being women. It is going to be such a fun night! Directed by Kristen Lee Rosenfeld, you will hear songs about love, sex, relationships, songs by our favorite women artists, and dream roles we want to play. It is going to be a night not to miss. This cabaret is on AUGUST 21 at 7pm at the LAURIE BEECHMAN THEATRE in NEW YORK. Please call 212.695.6909 to book your reservations! And please do it ASAP so you get a good seat. You will just be making reservations over the phone, and will pay when you get there. It is $10 cover + $15 food/drink minimum. We have been working on this cabaret for months and would love to have as much of you awesome people there as possible, so spread the word! It is a Saturday night, so plan a road trip, or bring your parents! We all cannot wait! And we are really hoping to see you all there! For more information please join our event group on facebook!

New York City Summer

SO, this is my first official blog entry post- Spring Awakening!! So strange still, but now comes a new chapter in my life and I cannot wait for it to start!

This is now my fourth week living here in the city, and I love it! But, I will be honest, it can get kind of boring sometimes, so I am calling on all you New Yorkers! What can I do here that is a) fun and b) inexpensive on my down time, which I have a lot of. I have been doing the usual, going to Central Park, rushing shows, taking dance, etc. I just am looking for some creative options. Also, to everyone in NY or not, what do you guys do in your free time when you are bored? Like hobbies and stuff I can pick up? I have started knitting and reading a lot, and watching shows online, but I would love to hear about what you guys do in your spare time to give me some ideas!

It has been really interested getting used to living here in NYC. It is definitely a strange adjustment because before tour, I was living at home, and then going on tour, I was living in a new place every single week. So now that I am somewhere I know I will be for a long while, it is kind of weird honestly. Very fun, but a bit weird. I love it though, I just know it is going to take time for me to get used to it, just like it took me time to get used to touring. It has been great though because a lot of my Spring family is doing the same thing, adjusting to life in the big city, and it has been great having them all here to hang out with and talk with. I am so thankful for Spring Awakening because I truly have life long friends from that experience. It has been so much fun seeing everyone here in NY and knowing that we are still so close even though tour is over.

Right now I am reading the book, "The Happiness Project" and I am in love with it! I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good, uplifting read. It is written by Gretchen Rubin and is all about her conquest over a year in her life to enjoy the little things and lead a happier more pleasant life. It is a wonderful book. I am only half way through, but it is already on my top ten favorite book list.

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far. It is a hot one out there today so stay out of the heat and become best friends with your air conditioner cause I'm cuddling with mine right now. :)
