The last few months flew by and my schedule was unbelievably hectic. This is why it would be so nice to not have a day-job when rehearsing a show. I likely had the easiest job on the production, and miraculously could turn it off at night (as opposed to taking a couple hours to wind down after a rehearsal), and yet still there was no extra time or spare brain space. We opened over a week ago and I’ve perhaps just now caught up with myself.
A few of the things I wish I had written about here include:
- I love watching actors work
- I’m constantly amazed at the limber imagination of some artists
- Directing a play is sometimes like making a clay sculpture – push a little here, pull a bit there, and see what you have.
All that work is being followed by a relatively short run. It’ll all be over before we even realize it.
