Hello from Ogunquit, Maine! It has been an exciting day and evening.
We spent most of the day visiting Kennebunkport. It is so beautiful there. We even saw Laura Bush and her daughter, Jenna. They were taking a walk along the shore with Jenna’s new baby….followed by 2 or 3 body guards. Fun!
We had lunch at The Clam Shack where Clay and the cast had meals a few times. The owners have three kids in the play and are very supportive of the Ogunquit Playhouse.
Friday evening we went to the theatre..What a thrill.
Unfortunately, I had a very poor seat. The biggest man in the audience was right in front of me and the second largest man was right in front of him. Sooooo….I had to try and see between their heads. I could not see anything in the middle of the stage unless they both moved at the same time. So,when Clay was singing his power song on the floor, I could hear it beautifully.
The audience was so responsive to each member of the cast. It was almost electric. There were lots of Clay fans there and some families with kids there too.
I was so impressed with the brothers. They really work well together and keep the audience laughing. Each one of them added something special to the show.
Clay was amazing! His voice filled the theatre and he sang every note with feeling and drama. Fortunately, I will be at the show again tomorrow and will be up close and hopefully will see what he is doing.
After the performance, we went out to the stagedoor. It was so crowded, but we wanted to at least watch Clay as he came out. Most of the brothers came out immediately and signed lots of programs. The crowd roared for each one that came through the door. Finally Clay appeared and the crowd went wild. He is so good at moving along and signing. He can’t even begin to sign something for everyone, but its fun to watch too.

Hopefully I will be able to write a better report after tomorrow’s show.
