Just Call Her Mimi

Hands down, this weekend was such a blast. I adore any reason for my family and friends to get together and this weekend did not disappoint! My sister, an avid thespian during high school, dusted off a 4 year musical theater hiatus to star in the role of Mimi Marquez in RENT.

About a month ago I learned of the auditions through a friend who musically directed the show. Between my sister's natural talent and the fact that she has always wanted to be Mimi, I just knew she had to audition!
It.was.phenomenal. ...And I'm not just saying that because my sister is fabulous! :) 
The show was authentically held in an old warehouse right down to the below freezing, Ohio winter temperature. On Friday my grandparents drove in for opening night and enjoyed the show along with Corey and the rest of my family. Saturday, I went a for a second time with some family friends, my mom, aunt, and my cousin.
But not without first stopping at this cute little place to take advantage of running water. (authentic warehouse remember!)
What a fabulous weekend! Monica, I'm so proud to have such a beautiful, talented sister! Another great role added to the books.
