Let me open by saying all of the Blockheads are nothing but proud of you. Your drive and ambition to put on something as monumental as a one man show is inspiring.
“The Kid” is your story about the highs, the lows, and of course family. To see you turn this from concept to full production is such a motivator. That example of dream turned reality in this tough time means so much to me.
I graduated from the University of Oklahoma in May. Ever since, I’ve been sending out applications, going to interviews and nothing has turned out successful yet. It’s tough feeling like all that money and time invested in bettering myself didn’t pan out for a HUGE successful career afterwards. This time off taught me a lot about being patient, and knowing that God has HIS plan for me. It also gave me time to bask in the wonderment of watching my idols chase after their dreams.
This letter is for all the fans that couldn’t be there for opening night, and who can’t be there during your run. We know Blockhead sisters near and far are representing us well in those seats. We also want you to know that near and far we’re behind you 100%. You made me smile in this tough time. I’m sure you made thousands smile as well.
Yesterday morning, I just wanted to send out a simple tweet to show you that you were in my heart the whole day.
Little did I know so many #BHs would jump on board with the hashtag, and even heartily attempt to trend it for you. Seeing that love and support made me grin from ear to ear. You deserve it, because you’ve worked so hard to see this moment.
*raises champagne glass* I’d like to make a toast: To Joe: May your run at the Dever PAC be all that you’ve dreamed of and more. Here’s to dreaming big to Broadway. To the Blockheads seeing the show: cheer loudly for Our Kid, he’s earned it.
Oh, and one last thing…
I will always and forever… “Love me some Joe.” 😉 Break a leg… and know that you were always “The Kid That Was Born A Star.”
