I just returned this afternoon from our trip to Joppa, MD where the new musical, “The Witnesses” performed another sneak preview at Mountain Christian Church. This church is the church were the writer of the script for the show, Gary Richardson, grew up.
We did a performance on Friday night and on Saturday night as well. The church really spoiled us and treated us like royalty. We got awesome home-cooked meals and 2 large rental vehicles to tool around in while we were in town. And the kindness and hospitality of the crew at the church was top notch.
What a treat!
For me personally, Friday was just a little rough. It has been since May since we’ve performed the show. But Saturday was a blast. At some point in the show I remember looking around at the rest of the cast – Zoe & Betsy on the violin and cello, Bobby on the bass, Scotty & Craig on percussion, the vocalists Aaron, Dave and Neal, the chilling story telling of Gary and the amazing song writing of Danny. I was quite humbled to be on the same stage with such talent.
For those of you who were able to catch the first show, “The Rock & The Rabbi“, you’re going to need to see this show. I don’t know how many people came up to us in Joppa after the show saying they thought nothing could ever top that show – but they were pleasantly surprised how much they enjoyed “the sequel.”
We’re coming to Indianapolis in September and to Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center in October. Keep checking The Witnesses website for all the details. Once we get firm dates, it will be posted there.
See you there!
