id you hear that? That huge sigh of relief? Oh nothing, it?s just me finally seeing the light at the end of this Summer of Hell tunnel. If you read?last month?s column, you know June wasn?t all that cute for?ya?girl. I wish I could say July was a little better, BUT ALAS DEAR READER,?’twas?not.?Womp,?womp.?

But that?s not what this column is about. This month, I?ve decided to flex some of those designer/actor/creator/…gulp??artist?skills you?ve been hearing me blab about for the past six months.?

As I look ahead to the next two months, I?m gearing up to return to the stage as Lady Capulet in?Romeo & Juliet. I?ve never, ever done R&J, so to say this is a dream show? well, it is. Lady C is one badass bird,?y?all. And because I can?t just not go a little over the top, I played with a mood board.?

As of writing this, we haven?t yet started rehearsals and I have barely scraped the surface of getting to know this complex creature. What I?ve put together could completely, completely change by the time the opening night?s lights go up. 

We?ll just have to wait and see? ?cause that?s showbiz, kid.
