OK – now that I’ve written it down, I’ll probably forget a bunch of stuff for our next rehearsal… but being off-book doesn’t mean you can’t review the script anymore… I just have remember which blocking notes to read and which ones to ignore.
Last night’s rehearsal was really helpful – we had all the right people in all the right places for the most part. It was also good to see our Susan understudy have a chance to run some scenes as Susan for the first time. It’s a lot to sit through without getting a chance to do her thing. Hopefully our other Susan gets well soon (strep!).
Working with a real human pianist was pretty nice again, too. We’ve been doing the Accompanease thing for long enough, and having actual formatas and ralls in the right spots is nice to get used to again.
Now, back our regularly scheduled programming (literally…)
more later – joel
