the heartbreak jukebox…

Hello everyone! This weekend I finally take Love Letters & Other Pointless Scribbles into the rehearsal space! This is terrifying for me, especially seen as how this time around I have outside eyes coming out of my ears to work with me on this show, and I can’t just go sit in a room and spend even more time thinking and imagining. I actually have to DO SOMETHING.

So I shared this a few months ago, back when this blog was over on blogger, but I thought I would post it again on here. this is the Heartbreak Jukebox playlist as collected from LEAPs Pub Culture 2.0. The idea was people added the song they went to after a break up, some are sad, some are angry and some make you want to stand up and shout ‘YOUR LOSS’ (which are personally my favourites). I will have this playlist on repeat this weekend as I am making and DOING. I love the way a song captures a story and a feeling, to the point where even if the lyrics don’t really SAY that, they make sense to lots of different people in many different ways!
