I must apologize for the briefness with which my blogs will be plagued the next several days. I will be a little bit MIA as far as the internet is concerned.
Why, you may ask? Because I am woefully behind on my FAUSTUS work and we saw clearly how quickly the turn-around will be after last night's rehearsal. I am excited and I want to do well for you, so accept my apologies for being slightly less entertaining in the near future.
That said, man what a great day yesterday!
We had a solid performance of MIDSUMMER with a good array of dear people watching, perfect weather and then lunched at Uno's with most of the cast. Bummed that we have to say goodbye to 3 of our number in 4 short days. : ( But we'll dwell on that later.
After lunch Cameron and I looked at our lines. He is doing great! No surprise there. I'm up to my neck in it. Two hours later, with a brimming brain, we hit the Zoot studio and saw just how amazingly abstract our puppets will be for FAUSTUS and added another small scene that really rounds out the cutting. I'm *very* excited about this project.
At 8p, our new cast member for the TEMPEST (JJ) showed up and we had a chance to read-through the play. I love that piece. There are many tangles to be solved, but I am confident that we will. It will be a nice capper to the summer.
After touching on all three plays, I was spent. I got home and stayed up late with my folks as they finished watching the very uplifting film, The Impossible, and then I sacked out like a dead-wet bag of potatoes.
So there you have it.
