In many ways, it feels like summer flew by in the blink of an eye. In other ways, I feel like things that happened at the beginning of the summer actually happened 5 years ago. Maybe it’s because my summer was generally very full of activity, but I’m happy to look back and share all of the fun stuff I did in June:
OSLO Wins at the Tony Awards
I mentioned in an earlier post that I was working on a few Tony-nominated shows this year. Well, one of them won two awards! OSLO (by J.T. Rogers and directed by Bartlett Sher) took home one of the highest honors of the night – the Tony Award for Best New Play. In addition, one of the actors in OSLO, Michael Aronov, took home the award for Best Featured Actor in a Play. Needless to say, this was an exciting night, and the energy in the party room (at P.J. Clarke’s, across from Lincoln Center) was insanely energetic. I feel so incredibly proud and honored to have worked on this powerful piece of theater. (If you’re in the U.K., you can catch the West End production this fall!)
My First Spin Class
As I’m typing this today I’m reminded that I survived my first spin class. I’m not going to lie or sugarcoat anything – I don’t exercise, and I’m pretty out of shape. Since I would love for this to change, my friend suggested that I come to a spin class with her. I eventually caved into the peer pressure (ok, ok… I agreed and was actually excited about it). We met at a Chelsea Flywheel studio and spun away. It was pretty fun while it was happening, and the hour flew by. While I’m not sure if this will become my primary form of fitness (I wasn’t walking normally for the rest of the day and suffered from this for the rest of the week), I know it’s something that I can handle and have fun while doing it.
My boyfriend, Gavin, and I celebrated our anniversary in June. We didn’t plan anything too major for the actual day since we knew we would be going to Orlando at the end of August, but it was fun too look back on the years of memories we’ve built so far. Here’s to many more years.
A Night at the Museum
As I type this section, I’m realizing how ridiculous I might come across, so here goes: my birthday is kind of a big deal. Or rather, birthdays in my family have always been celebrated to the extreme. As an early birthday gift this year, Gavin treated us to a night at the American Museum of Natural History (yes, the same museum from the movie!). It was one of the most fun nights I’ve ever had, and I got to live out my childhood fantasy of hanging out all night in a museum, exploring – sometimes with flashlights! – and sleeping over. Needless to say, Gavin outdid himself this year.

I’m planning on sharing what I did for the rest of the summer, along with some other fun posts over the next weeks. Stay tuned!
