Revisiting a piece of work that is so close to me has been interesting. I have had to drag myself back to the text, and then I’ve been delighted by it again. I have been shocked as how stage fit I need to be. I am surprised at how resistant my brain and body are to change after things get ingrained. And this is really only in a week of work. I am preparing for three shows of Drive With Me at the Alexander Bar next week.
But, the real gift is getting a second chance with the awesome Liz Mills. She is the most exciting, challenging, holding and inspirational director. And I measure the high regard in which I hold her by my desire to please and impress her. Acting is weird.
Every day I feel different emotions as I get closer to this piece we created and now re-create. And I can’t wait for new people to see it.
