BWW Blog: Molly Tynes of PIPPIN - Up and Running Join Us!
Since my last post we have gotten about a week's worth of previews under our belt. I figured the crowds would settle a bit after those first couple of absolutely wild preview audiences, but it appears the audiences are only getting more enthusiastic as we go! Each crowd is a little different and has its own personality, but they are all incredibly encouraging and vocal which we absolutely love! We are greeted daily at the stage door by smiling fans with posters, playbills, and sharpies in hand waiting for autographs. The support has really been overwhelming, and we could not be more grateful for the love our audiences and fans have already shown us. After all, what is live theater without an audience? Thank you all for spreading the word, for tweeting and posting about us, and most importantly for coming to see the show!
The next few weeks leading up to our opening night will be very busy ones! We will rehearse everyday and continue to perform the show eight times a week. Additionally we will be filming promotional footage, recording our original cast album, and participating in several other interviews and press events that will come up as we continue to promote the show. And then of course there will be our opening night on April 25th!
One thing I am really looking forward to is having my parents come see the show. My family has been so incredibly supportive of me. They have always believed in me and encouraged me to follow my dreams. And now they will get to sit in this beautiful Broadway theater and watch those dreams come to life. It will be a very special day!
Sadly, I must now bid you farewell! This will be my final post as BroadwayWorld's guest blogger of the month. Thank you all so much for reading! I especially want to thank Christina Mancuso of BroadwayWorld for giving me the opportunity to share my experiences with all of you. I hope you have enjoyed them. If you missed any, there are links to all my blog posts at the bottom of this page. And if you have not gotten your fill of all things "Pippin," don't forget to follow us on social media! Go to www.pippinthemusical.com for info on the show and for links to our social media pages. You can also follow me on twitter @MaryTynTyn for continued updates and behind the scenes photos.
