And above all, remember to have fun. It’s just a stupid opera. – R. Wilson
After we got dressed, we had a toast in the Green Room. Jeremy got a hammer and Jenni let me smash the swear piggy in front of everyone. It had euros and pesos and Hong Kong and Australia money in it. It had a couple of American quarters and dollars. The worst thing was there were RICOLA WRAPPERS and a HAIR CLIP!
Linda made a speech. I am not going to forget Linda and Alisa. I’ll probably go by the Pomegranate office to visit sometimes.
Goodbye Berlin. Goodbye everybody. Goodbye Einstein on the Beach.
I really don’t know what to write. It was the best show. The dancers gave me a bag they signed with gummies in it and my mom gave me a shirt with gummies from KaDeWe. I cried a little bit. I wore my paper airplane necklace under my costume.
People did all kinds of things in the show that they weren’t supposed to because it was the last one. It wasn’t big things but we knew what they were. I was going to do an ollie in Building but I didn’t.
At the end for our curtain call, lots of people were crying. Brad and Linsey were throwing roses on stage. I surprised my mom and brought her out during my bow. She started crying and told me she was so proud of me. I felt really proud that I was the only kid in the show and I worked hard and had a good time traveling the world for two and a half years. My mom helped me a lot. I did my last run across the stage with Lonnie and I finally got to go on the Spaceship with Joe!
We had a really good show! The theater gave us a party in the lobby after the show. I signed a lot of autographs. I didn’t want to go at first but we danced and I had so much fun. I wore Kate’s jacket and hat. She is going to be my friend for a long time.
I started to get kind of sad on the way back to the hotel because we have one more show left.
Elke Koepping interviewed me for Einstein. Here is the interview.
It’s written in German but my part is in English.
The only thing is I am 11.
Ann Christin took some of us to the theater where Bob does most of his shows and we met some of the Berliner Ensemble people rehearsing. Tom, my tutor met us there. The theater was really old and had secret doors. It had a raked stage like in Reggio Emilia. After the tour, we stayed at the Berliner Ensemble Cafe for school. I tried Bouletten and loved it. I got another one and fries! The actors on break came in with weird costumes on, but I know what that’s like after doing Einstein!
On our day off we went back to the TV Tower and ate lunch. It was good.
We walked around to all of the museums. My favorite was the DDR Museum. You could touch things and open drawers and doors. You can drive a Trabi. I thought I did pretty good but my Mom said I crashed a lot.
We got Ampelmann gummies. They are the red and green people in the crosswalk lights.
I had a GREAT NIGHT!
I had an interview for a kid’s website here. One of the questions was “Is it hard to work with Bob?” I get asked that a lot.
It was our preview and people ran to the doors to get a seat. The best thing was my friend Benjamin stayed backstage with me! He lives in Berlin but we met in NYC when we were little.
Bob made a speech and said for everyone to listen to each other and have fun. I like when he says that because I wouldn’t be doing Einstein if it wasn’t fun! That’s why I like GobSquad, too.
Benjamin and I played a lot of Minecraft. He has his own server. It was so great to have him with me.
Oh! I got SHORTS! At first I was upset because I didn’t want to be humiliated but I like them! The only thing I don’t like is my legs are painted.
Benjamin came on stage to watch Knee 5 but he had to run off so he wasn’t in the curtain call! It was funny.
Bob pushed me up in front of everybody during the curtain call! That’s what makes Einstein fun. It’s not hard to work with Bob.
Today is OPENING NIGHT!
We slept really late, had breakfast, slept some more and then we went to the Brandenburg Gate for lunch.
We are regulars on the train now. We got off at Potsdamer Platz and walked up to the gate. We saw the Holocaust Memorial first. It’s a big maze.
The gate is really big. We walked over to the Reichstag building and tried to get in, but you have to make a reservation and I didn’t want to wait.
We went back to rest because we have a Preview tonight!
