A Must See Production 

What was nice that before the performance began all the cast members gathered in front of the stage and while the music played the French Anthem “La Marseillaise” each of us stood with our hand on our hearts listening ~ very heart warming and a touching reminder of the recent tragedy in France as a gesture we wanted to show our support for France, the victims and as one of our cast members is from France to dedicate this show to the victims of this tragic terrorist attack…the entire audience stood up with us as the music played…then the show began …

The first number was done to the sounds of EnigmaReturn to Innocence” a very gorgeous song along with everyone in very dreamy costumes danced across the stage…really set the tone of the play as you could tell by all the applause…the next song was such a haunting melody called “Broken” that was performed by Richy…

After that the stage was set with special lights and effects for Kyle’s performance of  “The Fifth Element” and oh my Kyle nailed the costume with pure perfection….

Kyle ~ Fifth Avenue

The audience really let him know it too ~ bravo KYLE! After that we had Red & Steve performing Beyond The Invisible another really good song …so haunting ~ the choreography and costumes to this number were outstanding ~ you just have to come to see how gorgeous they both looked on stage and the dancers that supported them in this number… *winks*…

The songs, the sets just got better and better and you could feel the audience really getting into the numbers as the applause got louder and longer…especially when one of the cast members walked out onto the set to do his solo performance..As Othon came out strutting his stuff to perform “Sweet Dreams” you could tell he was in his element…

Othon ~Sweet Dreams 

As you just had to be there to see his moves on stage and listening to him sing those lyrics…

“Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree?
I travel the world
And the seven seas…..”

The stage was his ~ he owned it!!!  The set, the costumes were great ~ fantastic job as I still hear that song in my head…The tempo did not stop with that song but continued as Beezy came out and performed The Siren Song  but you just have to see the set and costumes for this ~ with someone commenting on ummm feathers, thick drumsticks *giggling* I will leave this as another for you to come see what just am speaking of…ooh what did Steve say again oh yes you as an audience member just might say “what the flock” laughing harder….Then Red entertained everyone with her performance of Wuthering Heights that just a really great song and Red put it all out on stage to again the audience letting her know how great it was by all the applause…and Steve came out and just knocked it out of the park with his performance of “In the Arms of The Angel” that still brings chills as I sit and listen to these words…
In the arms of the angel
Fly away from here
From this dark, cold hotel room
And the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage
Of your silent reverie
You’re in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here
What a great performance Steve gave us with this song ~ it has always been one of my favorites and can always bring tears to my eyes…Bravo Steve for such a touching performance…then it was my turn to perform as I take a huge gulp and look down to make sure my costume is on straight, my shoes are on, make up looks good ~ mic is working and am ready to go out and make my stage debut…

Me ~ Performing “Dear Jesse”

As I burst out singing my heart is pounding only wishing that the audience will enjoy this as much as I am ~ oh my ~ oh my am thinking to myself as I dance around singing  what fun that was and such a really colorful costume ~ just loved, loved the song, the choreography and the costume that Kyle chose ~ big smiles on my face as the number ended…YAY song was over and I listen to the congrats from all the cast members ~ and it was fun ~ all the hard work truly pays off ~ Then there came Red performing “Run” ~ and I just stood backstage transfixed on the words, the music and how powerful that song and emotions it brought me ……. WOW

Red ~ performing Run 

She was like a goddess out there on stage ~ her red hair flowing in the breeze as she just performed her heart out singing these words…

“I’ll sing it one last time for you
Then we really have to go
You’ve been the only thing that’s right
In all I’ve done

And I can barely look at you
But every single time I do
I know we’ll make it anywhere
Away from here

Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I’ll be right beside you, dear”

The performances still continued with several more songs but my thing is I cannot just let you see it all in my review because I want to entice, to tempt you to come see it LIVE yourself so will stop now but ~ this show even without me performing is one of the BEST if not the BEST shows I have seen them perform ~ amazing, electrifying, dazzling and many more adjectives can I express over how good this performance of Mysteria is ~ truly, truly you have to see it to understand, see the cast members and the gorgeous sets to know just why I am saying all this…BUT please come early as there is limited seating and some cast members family and friends could not get in due to that….All performances start at 1pm SLT so make sure you get there early to grab a seat ~ Hope to see you next Monday, Thursday or our final performance next Saturday ~ OMG almost forgot here is your stretch limo to the Oval ~ please click HERE ~

Until next time my loyal readers and followers please stick around as I still am opening boxes from all the Hair Fair demos…hugzz and huge huge thanks to all my fellow cast members ~ GREAT JOB!!!!
