Megan Reinking (u/s Sheila) - Easy to Be Hard - Hair

As one journey ends, another begins...

Spring Awakening closes this weekend. Ilse was and still is my dream role and I will never forget the experience of being able to stand in the spotlight and sing Blue Wind to an auditorium full of people. This has been a magical time in my life and I’m sad that it’s ending.

A couple of my friends from Spring were auditioning for Hair at my school. I had never worked with the theatre here but I wanted to work with these friends again and get into some more theatre. This morning I found out I was cast as Sheila. This is the first time that I will ever play a lead in a musical.

I’m so excited about Hair, but so sad that Spring is closing.

Life is weird.

So like, right now for example. The Haitians need to come to America. But some people are all, “What about the strain on our resources?” Well it’s like when I had this garden party for my father’s birthday, right? I put R.S.V.P. ‘cause it was a sit-down dinner. But some people came that like did not R.S.V.P. I was like totally buggin’. I had to haul ass to the kitchen, redistribute the food, and squish in extra place settings. But by the end of the day it was, like, the more the merrier. And so if the government could just get to the kitchen, rearrange some things, we could certainly party with the Haitians. And in conclusion may I please remind you it does not say R.S.V.P. on the Statue of Liberty. Thank you very much.

  • Berger:I think, for us, kissing is pretty much like an opening act, y'know? I mean, it's like the stand-up comedian you have to sit through before Pink Floyd comes out.
  • Claude:Yeah, and — and it's not that we don't like the comedian, it's that — that... that's not... why we bought the ticket.
  • Berger:You see, the problem is, though, after the concert's over, no matter how great the show was, you girls are always looking for the comedian again. Y'know? I mean, we're in the car, we're fighting traffic... basically, just trying to stay awake.
  • Sheila:Yeah, well, word of advice: bring back the comedian. Otherwise next time you're gonna find yourself sitting at home, listening to that album alone.
  • Woof:Are we still talking about sex?
