We had lots of fun in today’s rehearsal.
With only the principal actors (and understudies) present, we read through the scenes which are sprinkled between the songs. We focused on the words and on telling the story. And played liberally with character choices. We experimented with accents and acting quality; and discussed the power and effect of unusal/out-0f-the-norm character choices.
It’s all fun and games right now. But we may have stumbled upon some insights which will carry over into future rehearsals and performances.
