I’ve been a bad blogger. Since my last post: we’ve had a public sing-through of the score; we’ve held auditions; we’ve announced the cast list; we’ve had production meetings and set both design and publicity plans in motion; and we’ve been in rehearsals for over a month.
Act I is completely staged. There’s still much work to do and many things to fix, but the staging is solidly there — and that is a great accomplishment in this short amount of time.
Act II is largely staged as well. Also a great accomplishment.
I must admit that I’m setting the staging at a rather fast-and-furious pace. I want us to have the production solidly in order so that we can spend the final weeks honing and perfecting our work. And when time allows and the need arises, we should also be able to add more layers to our creation.
