Miss Me Like You Mean It.

Cast: Me, Isaac, Jacklyn, Brian.

I’ve been missing my close friends lately. Being in a new town’ll do that. While totally surrounded by new people and adventures, my heart pulls toward something more familiar. So, if you’ll indulge me for a moment…a little Portland post. The last play I did was with Third Rail Repertory called “Kiss Me Like You Mean It“.

I miss this show and I rarely pine for shows once they have lived their life. But this one got all tangled up in my heartstrings. Ah. I’ll get myself all verklempt…

Set in progress. End of show.
