How am i supposed to tell if i have a fever onstage tonight? High temperature? Sweating? Short of breath? Feeling faint? Falling to my knees? All of these things are a normal part of my performance … just warming up my monologue and my song in my living room left me breathing hard and vigorously mopping my brow. Of course, you might argue that i’ve been feeling like that in rehearsal because i’ve been sick all along, but i say it’s the intensity of my acting. Yup. That’s it.
