Casting is now complete. And I’m very happy with the talented cast we’ve assembled for this year’s production. Our first sing-through, this past Thursday, was a good indication both of the incredible talents of our cast and of the beauty and complexity of the score. I’ll meet with just the actors playing principal roles this coming Tuesday to begin discussions on the script and approaches to individual characters and relationships. After that rehearsals will focus primarily on music for a while.
On other fronts, I’ve at least touched base with all the designers and will have further meetings to develop the concepts for sets, costumes and props in the coming weeks.
