Denny’s Adventures in Allee’s “Soup To Nuts Party Mix” – Part 4

We all gathered ourselves together in the studio for a meeting.  After tripping on a cable in the studio, we all thought it best that Allee stayed off her feet as much as possible.  Our jaws dropped to the floor when we found out Allee took a tumble.  Not good timing at all.  Here is Allee getting a little workout from her masseur.  I forgot your name, please forgive me!  That’s Susan Olsen in the foreground!

For a while there we all thought Allee would have to use these during her show.

The best shoe laces ever!

    I took more than a tumble. There was a giant 4 inch round cable that hooks on my ankle and my whole body hit the ground at once. I thought for sure my knees would be crushed but was surprised to get up and not really hurt that much. Something did, in fact, happen to my knee that had me at the knee surgeons 8 AM Monday morning, just what I needed before breaking my 37 year pattern of stage fright. Ended up being nothing serious but I did use those crutches until we got to the theater Tuesday morning.

    Martha Patterson, giving me the shoulder workouts, is my hand therapist. She’s literally saved my hands. So many people I work with have completely screwed up hands that ache all the time after years of pounding every conceivable sort of keyboard. She’s a miracle worker. It was a total fate that she offered to come over when I saw her the week before, just to give me a little tweak before the show. The 1st thing that started aching was my neck and shoulders and I completely believe she averted that from turning into something major. Shout out to Dawn Smith too!

    I’m happy to see my blue speakers finally making your documentation. These are the sneakers I wear when I have serious work to do or on plane flights. They’re unbelievably comfortable. I got them online when I was in Atlanta when The Color Purple opened regionally in 2004. We were working around the clock so I very much associate them with Purple ( though they are blue).

    Love having you, Susan, and Windup Kitty in the room while we were rehearsing “Neutron Dance” and “Stir It Up”. Really calmed me down between the show only being 48 hours away and having just taken my tumble.

    Poor, poor Allee and that poor, poor knee! I met so many truly nice people and Martha was certainly one of them…She is so sweet and kind, it must have made you feel better before she even fixed you! She also happened to be wearing THE BEST boots EVER at your show….

    And Dawn Smith, well, she’s a saint too…can’t say that enough….
