I haven’t blogged in a while, because like a lot of people, I just can’t focus right now. And I can’t think of anything to say that someone else isn’t saying better.
So…. How about another edition of ‘FABULOUS LADIES I KNOW?’
And today.. It’s LYNDSAY SWEENEY, because tomorrow is her birthday, and she’s fabulous!
If you have seen Lyndsay on stage, you already know that she’s HILARIOUS. I’ve directed her in a few shows and acted with her once, and her comic timing and facial expressions are always spot on. Even when she’s just joking around when we’re hanging out, she cracks me up.
She’s worked with a lot of theatre companies in Houston… The Classical Theatre, Catastrophic, Landing, AD Players, and others.. often getting nominated for awards for her performances. I’ve worked with her in my company, Mildred’s Umbrella, and she always cracks me up and brings fun to the rehearsal process. Here are some photos of her in shows I directed. You can tell by the photos that she’s an incredible actress. I do recommend going to see her in a show when we’re all up and running again. You won’t be sorry.
In addition to her massive talent as a theatre artist, she’s a teacher who works with tiny tots, through elementary school aged kids, schools and in theatres. They love her because she is patient, fun and kind. That is a talent that cannot be faked, and it makes me very proud of her. Here is her teaching at Brave Little Company. You can see why the kids love her.
Her kindness comes through in everything she does. When she decided to adopt a dog, she was super picky about it, and it took forever. I thought she was looking for perfection, but instead of picking a new puppy or an easy dog with no issues, she chose a dog who had been abandoned and neglected, who had some physical issues that needed help and some issues from the abandonment that needed patience and love to get past. She picked a dog who needed someone exactly like her, and she put in the work to bring her back to health and happiness. Watching her do that has impressed me more than any show I ever saw her do.
She’s one of the best friends I have ever had. She’s always there for me if I call on her, and always tells me the truth about things, even if it’s not what I want to hear. I love her and trust her, and I want the world to know how fabulous she is.
Thank you for sticking by me, Lyndsay. I love you. Happy Birthday!
