The audience was full of compliments for our musical. After the last show I even met some serious fans of Tommy who kind off grew up with him. They had the LP and the dvd besides having been to all Tommy performances in Holland. These fans told me that our Tommy had really amazed them and that we, as an amateur club, had put down a near professional show! WOW great words to hear from others!
But now it is all over for the whole group. Especially the actors call today black Monday. They have been working so hard on Tommy for more than a year that it feels kinda strange now that it's all over.
Immediately after Tommy the crew starts removing all our stage settings. Decor pieces are loaded into a truck for transport to the material yard. We have to leave the theater empty for the next show.
It always makes me feel a little melancholic when I see the theater like this.
A last peek into an empty hall.

This morning I took a shadow shot of some shadows I saw here at home.

On the next picture you see the Glienicke Bridge in Berlin. It spans the Havel River to connect the cities of Potsdam and Berlin. It's also known as the Bridge of Spies because the Soviet Union and the United States used it to exchange captured spies during the Cold War.
When in Potsdam we made a cycling tour and cycled over this famous bridge. Here you see us approaching the bridge from the Berlin side. A closer look before cycling over.

A few months ago I watched the DVD Tommy to get the idea and I must say that it couldn't appeal to me. It just isn't my kind of story and the music is not my genre at all.
After having seen and heard a tryout of the 2nd part of the musical this past weekend I now have the feeling that it's going to be an incredible show once again. This musical group keeps amazing me with all the great ideas they have and the way all members are able to live into their roll. In one word sublime!
Of course this all wouldn't be possible without the help of a large group of volunteers. Men who have spent a lot of time making the right stage setting and who are now busy building this setting in the theater. Women that have been sewing perfect fitting clothes for all actors. An orchestra that is filled with people that love making music and are really good in it.
Again I am glad to be able to help this musical group and I am looking forward to the coming performances. In the theater with the right lights everywhere, a sound that is fantastic, beautiful clothes and a great stage setting, everybody will be able to perform to their utmost and that will give all of us a wonderful feeling!

It always gives me a happy and energetic feeling when we get to see the sun and even though it is freezing cold outside, on sunny days it appears to me as if Spring is slowly approaching. Yes!
