So I just got home from seeing Woman In Mind…
This is the part where I do my standard “I know I say this every time” disclaimer, but you know what? There’s a reason I say that a lot. Jobsite puts on some really incredible productions. Woman In Mind was no different. I laughed my ass off (not that this is really something that wasn’t expected by those who have had me in their audiences before). I cried at the end. It was a wonderful, wonderful production and I highly recommend you go see it if you’re local.
Of course, if you want to do that you have to do it…today.
The last performance is this Sunday Afternoon.
The entire ensemble did stellar work in this cast, pulling performances out that are completely contrary to the types of roles you’re used to seeing them in. I haven’t had the pleasure of working with some of the folks in the cast, but I’ve seen or worked with them all in the past and I can say across the board that it’s some of the best work I’ve had the honor of watching them perform (up to and including the direction, costumes, and sets).
But Woman in Mind is, as the name implies, a story about a woman…and it was truly awe inspiring to watch Ami pull off the performance she did tonight. Seriously – if you’ve ever enjoyed her work in the past, go see this show. You won’t be disappointed.
