And so it begins.


  • Ian approaches Jessica about living together on tour.
  • Jessica breaks the news that she has already agreed to live with Brandon in the next city.
  • Ian and Jessica begin their crazy talk, a plan has begun to take root.
  • They realize they could save lots of $$$
  • Together, they approach Brandon with their revolutionary, albeit unconventional idea.
  • Brandon sees the potential for fun as well as the $$$ and seals the deal.
So here is a recap.

We have Ian.
And together they make up The Alliance.
Tonight is the first of many in which the three of us live in one hotel room. We split the cost three ways and so doing, have rumpled the feathers of others in the cast by forming this Alliance.

But really, they could form one too. Nobody is stopping them.

Not being a great bedmate (as you can see from this), I opted to sleep on the floor. Ian fashioned me a little bed of cocooned pillows and it is quite comfortable, actually.

Wish The Alliance luck; I get the feeling this is the start of something beautiful.

And just for fun, I thought I'd share this.
This was the art for our show that Bethany Moore (who plays Judy) painted at the Fox in St. Louis. She did an amazing job and it's an honor to sign the same walls that are already filled with signatures from the likes of Tori Amos, Jason Mraz, Bill Cosby, and Chita Rivera.

Jess, that painting is awesome...and how very cool to be able to be a part of such a neat tradition by signing your name on those theater walls, where so many have gone before!

Jess said...

Thanks Kathie--I couldn't agree with you more!

Why would this ruffle feathers? And how long will you be sleeping on the floor??

Love the painting!

Baaaahahahaha Brandon's PJs hahahahaha!!!

I can't believe you're on the floor. I'd be the one on the floor too.

Good luck. Hope you all have fun and get the space you need too. ;-)

omg brandon is so cute in his footie pajamas! and that painting that bethany did is so good. loves it!

Jessica said...

Jase--The boys inform me that we are definitely rotating on who gets the floor--though, I really don't mind it at all. It's actually perfectly comfortable and don't you remember how, growing up, I spent a lot of time sleeping on the floor, despite the fact that I had a bed right next to me?

Oh and it ruffles some feathers because one person said that we are all the people he lives with and now he has no roommate options left (which isn't true, since he has never lived with me OR Brandon, actually!) and then another person expressed annoyance that we were saving so much $ and then showed interest in joining The Alliance for a few cities and he will actually be doing just that for a little bit!

jessica said...

and yes, Brandon's footie PJ's are amazing. ;-)

Those hallowed halls are also signed by the infamous (and soon to be famous)...deana marie kirsch. The magnificent "money" wall was her brain-child you know.

First of all, I'm loving The Alliance, especially your recap of how it happened.

And that painting's completely awesome, as is the fact that you guys are now part of the Fox's history. Go you!

jessica said...

deana marie--of course, how could I forget the amazing YOU!!!!
