BWW Blog: Ashley Ward of Off-Broadway's 50 SHADES! THE MUSICAL - Having a Ball!
Hello again Broadway World readers! Things are trucking along nicely with 50 Shades! We are all finally coming down from the high of opening and going about the business of doing 8 shows a week with a bit less fanfare. Still we are having a blast and enjoying strutting our stuff for our amazingly fun audiences! We are also continuing to enjoy hanging out with each other and just having a ball!
Last week, after our Thursday night show, the whole cast came out to see Chris Grace and me do our improv thing with our musical improv group Baby Wants Candy! It was such a fun night and we couldn't have asked for a better, more supportive audience. We got the title Tim's Fault (shouted out by one of our cast mates based on a game we play involving Tim Murray- who plays Jose in the show) and we created a full musical (entirely made up and not related to the game at Tim's expense)! The cast loved it and it got several of them interested in taking improv classes! Hooray! It was also really cool to have our new friends in our old stomping grounds (The People's Improv Theater) for the night.
Well back to the salt mines (aka the Elektra Theater)!! Laters, readers!
