It’s official, I’m going to Taiwan at the end of September. The day I found out about Shirley’s death I also landed a gig with a Broadway tour in Taiwan through a contact in NYC. It was an up and down day.
I’ll be flying to NYC at the end of the month for a few rehearsals, then taking off to Taiwan for 2 weeks and 9 shows.
As I’ve found to be typical of international gigs, I have very little knowledge of any details of the job, other than I will be in Taiwan, and I will be playing music.
I do know that it will be a Broadway review with half-a-dozen singers and a pit. I think it’ll be a musicians-on-stage, singers-at-a-microphone kind of show. But I don’t know.
So…I’d call this a pretty positive improvement over last year. October 3rd of last year I was heading in for my 5th chemo treatment. This year I’ll be having a day off in some place called Hua-Lien, blowing all my salary on cheap electronics and hoping I make it back to the tour bus on time.
