The bad news is that I’ve done a woefully bad job of keeping up with the Director’s Blog this year. I’m not proud of that and I do apologize.
The good news is that the cast and crew have been working like mad and the show is in terrific shape. The blocking and choreography have been in place for a few weeks now. But it’s pretty intricate in places and has been taking a bit of time to learn and to work out the kinks.
I had to be away for a few days earlier this week to work on another production and charged the cast with implementing new notes and working out presistent problems in my absence.
When I returned last night, I was treated to a sharply focused, intricately nuanced, hilarious, and musically sound run-through of the entire show. Bravo to all!
We move into the theater next week and will then have just a few rehearsals to work out all the technical aspects of the production. But the show is in solid shape; and our designers, running crew, and technical staff can’t wait to get their hands on it.
