Children of Eden, seek for your garden. by Keri G. '10

You and your children to come, someday to come home.

i was going to write a post about Thanksgiving and Drop Date and not dropping 18.02, but it was boring. So I deleted it. Don’t complain; I’ve spared you the trouble of reading something you really wouldn’t have wanted to read.

I will, however, grace you with this:

It takes up more time than everything else I’m doing this semester, but it is absolutely, absolutely worth it.

Our first show was tonight, and we all enjoyed an awesome dinner at Uno’s afterward. And here I am at 4:30 AM writing this post, but who needs sleep when you’re in an amazing musical?

    haha, i can TOTALLY relate with the not sleeping during musical season……ESPECIALLY during tech week.

    for example, my high school puts on their show the first weekend in may……which means the last week in April is a super-intense tech week, not to mention the first week of May leading up to the show… that means no sleep that entire week. Even better? AP exams are that week as well…..and I’m taking 5 AP Exams…..that leaves me about 2 weeks to be institutionalized before I am fully recovered and graduate from high school.

    Anyways, break a leg in your other shows!

    It really is an awesome musical. I have half a mind to see it again tonight.

    Totally agree with Jon….I have outdoor track with the musical and AP exams. For some reason all these activities love the months of April and May. So it is run dozens of miles, rush home just to shower, get back to school to sing and go over scenes, and then get home at like 10:00 to say hi to my lovely Princeton Review AP Exam book. And I have to say “Children of Eden” one of my favorites. Break a leg on the rest of your shows. What’s your role? And what other musical is the company going to put on? You guys put on musicals! Another reason why MIT is my top choice

    Mario –


    I’m Young Cain and one of the storytellers. Children of Eden is put on by MIT’s Musical Theatre Guild, which is doing Reefer Madness over IAP and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum in the spring.

    Evan –

    This is why I love you.

    Also, you are awesome to begin with.

    Keri!!! YOU WERE AWESOME! I was so impressed, the whole musical was just ridiculously profesional and entertaining. The flashback sequence (where you and young Abel were playing clapping games on the stairs) was so cute. Great job! It was the best one I’ve seen.

    Jon – My school hosts our spring musical around AP time, too! It’s always the week before or the first week of APs. I just don’t get their thinking =)

    I wish I could see you guys perform it! Hopefully I’ll see you guys on stage next year wink

    Actually, hopefully I’ll join you =)
