BWW Blog: Ashley Ward of Off-Broadway's 50 SHADES! THE MUSICAL - Afterglow
After the curtain call we all came backstage and had a champagne toast and yelled and screamed like crazy people! It was great! So our run has officially begun. After saying a sad farewell to our directors and choreographer we are on our own doing eight shows a week.
It feels like graduating in a weird way. We used to be their babies and now we're all groweds up. It is a cool, fun feeling. Plus we got some amazing reviews, so that gave us plenty of confidence to keep doing what we know to do.
So how do you keep the magic alive doing eight shows a week for an extended period of time? Well, I'm not sure yet. I've never done a run of a show longer than a month or two. But I think the fact that we all love each other and really get along well help us keep things fresh as time goes on! Thankfully there are no odd men out in the cast and everyone is equally well liked. We're all great friends!
Until next time please enjoy these photos of the cast hanging out and enjoying each others company!!!
