A place to appreciate the many things in my life that I am thankful for

A Special SM

I still have a lot to catch up on, but I had to write this quick post about one special Stage Manager.

Nick Alain is stage managing Evolution Theatre‘s upcoming production of [boxhead]. I am grateful for that alone, however that’s not what drove me to write this post.

I’ve been swamped with things lately. Between raising a baby who’s getting more active everyday, managing a theatre company and  everything else on my plate, a few things have slipped through the cracks. I feel like I’m running to play catch up and I’m exhausted.

Today Nick e-mailed me to bring one of those things to my attention. I felt awful and quickly replied with apologies and a an attempt to right the situation. His response was extremely understanding. I know I’m running on a low amount of sleep today (Nathan is teething and kept me up last night) and am extra emotional, but his response made me cry.

So not only is Nick is a fantastic SM, but he’s also a really great person. I am so grateful to be working with someone who’s so patient, understanding and kind.

Thank you Nick.
