"Another opening, another show!" Any of you fellow thespians out there should be breaking into song about now...wait...I think I can hear you! (Okay, stop with the dancing already.) The famous Cole Porter lyrics illustrate so perfectly the enthusiasm and energy that a cast feels on opening night. Opening night is certainly special. The actors are nervous and excited, waiting in the wings, make-up on, costumes ready, props set. The audience, full of anticipation, waits for the lights to dim and the curtain to part. Then, the defining moment, curtain up, lights on, and....MAGIC!
No matter what the run of your show is, one week, two, a month, or more, there always comes a time to close. Closing night, the bittersweet end to a part of an actor's life.
Keeping with tradition, the cast and crew finally get to play the pranks that they have been thinking about, no--more like plotting, since before the show even opened. The performance is an absolute riot as everyone struggles to keep in character through changing lines, odd props, and hilarious mishaps.
Then, as the curtain falls for that last time, the energy overwhelms you. You squeal with delight as your heart starts to break, just a little. You say goodbye to that quirky character, check in those costumes, hang up that wig, and help strike the set. Hugs and kisses are loosely distributed with promises to meet again at the upcoming cast party.
Gifts are an essential part of any cast party; after all, everyone wants a tangible memento of the time that was spent together. Sometimes coming up with the perfect gift for a much loved director can be tricky. A gift card to a nice restaurant, a certificate for a much needed massage, or a great pair of sterling silver cufflinks to wear on the next opening night. Broadway sign cufflinks for the director, and treble clef cuff links for the music director would be perfect.
Now all that you need to decide is what to sing for the next audition and clear your schedule for the next big show!
Whether your interests are in silver, gold, artistic, sports, or other theme-related cufflinks we've got you covered. Cufflink Aficionado carries a broad range of men's cufflinks designed to meet each connoisseur's individual style and interest. Our selection of cuff links are sure to top off that perfect look.
