It has been another FABULOUS festival week! The production teams rose to the challenges of time and space, brought new and exciting ideas, took risks with unconventional thinking, putting hearts and egos on the line and on display. This is not easy "fun" that we choose to do, but it has significant and tangible rewards that cannot be measured by the number of awards that are distributed. Let us measure the week in moments that made us smile, moments in which we connected with a character, related to a situation, felt the small hairs on the back of our necks prick up. Moments shared over food and drink, moments from the past relived and absent friends remembered fondly. Moments of joy, moments of pain, moments of understanding, moments of grief, moments of rebirth, and moments in which we embraced each other with intimacy and without fear. I am honored to be part of this creative, inclusive and fearless community.
Cheers, Sharon
