Sorry for keep going back to the well of the Rocky Anniversary show… it’s something that’s sticking with me.
Getting up on stage is something that is some completely different from my normal way of moving through the world. I tend to stay in the shadows and not draw attention.
Not having a literal spotlight on.
I grew up shy. I owe Rocky and the cast a huge debt for where I am now.
As I looked at this picture that En took of me a minute into my performance. What stood out is that everyone is looking at us; in the spotlight, the rest of the world turns into the void. Inspecting the photo I now see the people from the darkness.
Maybe that’s how I did it. And got me the confidence to do a lot more.
