me, with Vienna Teng in the cottage
I was a bit nervous during the show because Vienna had texted me earlier to inform me that she had lost her voice (the "frog" she alluded to while on stage). When we arrived, I wandered into the cottage and hung out with her while she prepared a bowl of lemons for the show and drank honey tea. I also snagged a bottle of C. Donatiello wine and a few glasses for our table. :)
Despite her pal the frog, Vienna was great! I've only seen her like this a few times, but I'm always impressed that she manages to get through shows without her voice in perfect condition.
Ivy Zenobi joined Bill and me for the show. It was great to see her, as well.
