So I hugged one of my actors on Tuesday and he was full of flu and now I’m full of flu. Poo. But yesterday I went to Noah of Cape Town rehearsals for an hour. It has been very hard to stay away. When I got there the cast (except for Vuyo who also has flu) were sitting around Amanda Tiffin, who was on the keyboard, and they were ‘note bashing’, which, for those unmusical like me, is learning the notes of one of the songs. So, in the beginning it’s all unremarkable, and then suddenly, there is this song. Sung by fifteen voices. Omigod.
I am beside myself with excitement for this show. Frankie (who plays Gareth Martens) has done these unbelievable drawings. I went to talk to the sales department at The Baxter today, to introduce them to the show and encourage them to sell block bookings. I can’t say how much I am just bubbling over.
