Last night was a good rehearsal. As it turned out, it was more of a tech rehearsal than anything else. Cue-to-cue. Mostly for the benefit of the sound and lighting guys so they can sync up the cues to the action that happens on stage.
But the set is built! We got to see it for the first time last night, and it looks snazzy! It's not overly intensive, but it's not simple and "representative" either. What we need to play with in on stage, we have. Furniture, walls, bus seats, etc. And, what fascinates me is, the part of the set that takes place in a small two-room apartment, is actually on a large platform that moves upstage, disappearing behind the curtain when not needed. It looks nice!
We didn't actually finish the cue-to-cue for all seven scenes last night, so tonight, we'll start with what's left, and then move into a full-costume run of the show. I've been looking forward to that part too. I always feel more in-character when all the details are in place. Costume, set, lights, sound, etc. Rehearsing a show is fun, but putting all the pieces together in the final week is even better!
So, here's to a fun rehearsal later tonight. It'll be a long night again. Perhaps tedious too. But worth it. We've got a great show, and we're just about ready to bring it to life.
We open on Friday. Come on out and see us perform
