Second cup of coffee, with flecks of glitter, and basking in the joyous and Magickal 19th edition last night at the Highline Ballroom. After last year we were worried that we couldnt top some of the incredible NOTS 18 moments on our new big stage, but the performers and audience helped to erase those fears and bring it up even higher.
It was the first night of MORE than 1000 Stevies in attendance, but with the greatest crowd, no incidents whatsoever. Never made it up there but heard that the balcony was a total blast! To every attendee in our most costumed crowd EVER, your obvious love and joy at being there uplifts us, and we can never thank you enough..
Everyone has their favorite performances, and certainly Jock Soto's opening Rhiannon number with Delirium and the Boys and Sweetie's Act Two reprise, Adam Joseph and company on Has Anyone Ever Written Anything For You, Mia and Adam's Landslide (wow!), Poison Eve's Sisters of the Moon wytches ballet, Jazmen Flowers' stunning Beauty and the Beast and Bella Luna's new definition of twirling were among mine. SO many great moments on that stage, wonderful debuts (Corey Tut and Patty Bruce, Lady Zombie et al..) and as always - inspired go-go from every one of our seven dancers.
To our Enchanted DJS and crew - Dany Johnson running the musical end, new crew members Dale and Seven, Enchantress Cynthia keeping the door flawlessly flowing, Torin ruling the dressing room, NOTS decor angels Pablo Maine and Muffinhead, and the whole staff of Highline - who were so first-rate - deepest thanks.
As always, we'd love to hear your thoughts and please, POST YOUR PICTURES HERE! For one month any registered member can post their NOTS 19 pictures in this topic - please share your favorites, and try not to post enormous images that stretch out the page too much. Pics must each be 300k or less in size or they wont post..
Thank you and we havent stopped twirling yet!
