6/12/13-6/13/13: Akron, OH

I know we were just there - but to tell you the truth, I don't remember much about Akron, OH.

And that's not the city's fault or the venues...You see my cold continues and has gotten worse - so even though I'm still performing every day, I'm spending my non performing time lying in bed and blowing my nose...

I do remember that this is the 3rd time we've been to Akron on this tour - twice we stopped for lunch here at the Akron mall (once on my birthday when our bus broke down).   But this time we were more downtown.  It seems like its a very nice city - lots of public art everywhere.  And I can tell you that the venue is nice.  I've actually seen a show here before.  A few years ago we were in Cleveland with Curious George and heard that Avenue Q was playing Akron.  Some of the cast had friends in the show and got a bunch of us comp tickets, so we drove over for the evening.  

This time a group of our cast went over to Cleveland to see the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame - a venture headed up by Jesse, our Gomez (seen here in his bus 'office' setting up the tour).  That's one that I wish I'd been able to do - oh well next time - maybe we'll be in Cleveland next season...
