Tonight we had a stop-and-go run through of Act II. We sharpened a lot of elements, fixed some spacing and timing issues, and made great progress throughout. I also had time to add some additional blocking , and to work on the final moments of the show. I think we’re in good shape. As with every production, we’ve had our setbacks… illness, weather, scheduling, accidents — and we’ve dealt with them. But from here on out there can be no more excuses. Every day needs to be spent getting us up to top performance quality. Every rehearsal must show huge improvement over the last. Tonight was a good indicator that we’re on that ascendant path. If we can continue to grow more solid and more confident with each rehearsal, we’ll be just fine.
