We left the relative safety of the hot pre-fab rehearsal room yesterday and we start working on the stage today. This is it. Now the work shifts focus from the beautiful process of discovery into technical mayhem. Lighting, sound, costumes, props and set time. The one version of the play literally replaces the other as it has to settle into a new way of being. Rehearsals in a rehearsal room are fun. They are alive with possibility. They are where huge experiments happen. Now the decisions are made. Now the whole thing becomes a product. Any guesses to how nervous I am. I suppose a giveaway is the time of this entry.
No question about it though. I’m loving it.
