(Cross posted from GGDP) Lindsay has arrived! No, that’s not her – that’s the new curtain up in the doorway. It’s all hands on deck for the next few days as we enter the final week of preparation for PHANTOM WING! Time to get to work! I wasn’t able to bring a lot of stuff, […]

Yikes! I’m a bit panicky about all the things I still need to do for <a href=”http://girlgangdanceparty.tumblr.com”>GGDP.</a> I think we may have a tendency to go a little overboard with our expectations and wants for this piece.
