I find it amusing that the two people I was closest to in the Touring Company were the two people that I didn't know through the Training Center before hand. The first, Tim, I've already written about. The second, Trish, is pictured above.
Trish actually didn't start rehearsing with us until about two weeks after the rest of the new people started. I remember being VERY impressed with her right off the bat. She had teh ski11z, man. And she's a terrific person to boot.
A joy to perform with, and fun to hang out with.
She flew into SF tonight, for a meeting tomorrow morning, then she's off to Hawaii for more meetings. She twisted my arm and had me come up for dinner, which I was happy to do.
There are just some people that you just "click" with, and no matter how much time passes, you can always pick up right where you left off. Trish is one of those people. We just sat, drank Newkies (well, I did) and bullshitted all evening. It was awesome. And she looks GREAT. She's lost 48 pounds, I believe. Doctor prescribed and monitored diet thing. Tres chique.
Anyway, she's just a phenomenal human, and deserves to be recognized as such.
