"The second act begins with probably the strongest number in the show, focusing on those who work the second shift. A sketch tells the story of Delores, quite possibly the world's greatest waitress, played by the dynamic Molasses. Throughout the number, Delores equates her job as being an art, taking so much pride in her job and getting so caught up in her dream of being the world's perfect server that she finally loses all consciousness to the tables she is serving. Molasses dominates the stage, belting out her song to near perfection, leaving the audience hoping Delores's shift will never end."
Color me speechless.
So something you have to know about me: I've been told many a time I have a great voice. I can belt it out better than anyone. But I was stunted as a child with my insecurites and never really believed I could really sing (it didn't help that my HS music teacher said I wasn't good enough to be in the girls chorus). Even to this day, I've been in shows that have gotten reviews and I've been mentioned, but not like this.
This blew me away.
I almost started crying.
It means one thing: I have to really get, deep in my soul, that I'm good. And for me, that's hard since I don't believe it. But here it is, in black and white. And I didn't even pay this person. :)
Today I'm kinda floating on air. My throat is sore (going to the doc's in a few) and we've got 3 shows this weekend. I'm worried I won't make it through.
And I can't wait to get on stage.
Happy, happy day!
