My Mom asked me what the first thing I remembered about each city we went to on tour.
Rehearsal at the Baryshnikov Center was in NYC, but I started with that:
I was very very shy. I had a lot of fun laughing when I met Charles in Trial rehearsal. I thought, am I going to know all of these people’s names? Before we got the cube, I used Charlie’s plastic salad bowl.
Ann Arbor: the Michigan basketball game with my tutor Jim. The time my Mom let me go to a place called Buffalo Wild Wings. The party we had closing night and the NFC championship game was on.
Reggio Emilia: Dad was there. The best tortelli verde. Trash can basketball.
London: Hamleys toy store. Walking everywhere. The time we found the Sherlock Holmes place on the way home and ate there.
Brooklyn: I was at home and it was really hard not staying closer to BAM. The burger place!
Berkeley: Yogurtland. The Giants won World Series.
Not a tour city but we stayed on West Coast instead of going home when they had the big hurricane:
Los Angeles: Disneyland on Halloween Night!
San Francisco: Trolley. Going to Alcatraz. Almost missing the plane to Mexico.
Mexico City: Orly in a cow suit! The pyramids and climbing both. Churros filled with chocolate. Chinese food in Mexico.
Hong Kong: Going to Big Buddha. Seeing everything!
Melbourne: The costume exhibit. Our whole day trip to the country. When the koala photobombed me.
Los Angeles: The creepy walk back to the hotel at night and it felt like zombies were after us! Our 50th show.
Paris: Every single tourist attraction we went to and I usually DO NOT like places with a lot of people.
