Last night I was talking on the phone (on Skype) with one of my fellow cast members about 45 minutes before the earthquake hit. She is in Xian, China, and I found out today that she felt the earthquake and was terrified. Thankfully, she was able to get online and let people know that she's ok. The earthquake happened very close (60 miles) to Chengdu, the first city we toured in, and also close to Chongqing, our second city, and we know many people there. The next two cities where we'll be performing are also quite close, but after that we'll be along the eastern coast and not so close. I just can't believe that this happened -- it's so sad.
