After several days of record breaking 80+ degree heat in Bangor, we went into tech as the temps dropped back to freezing. Some are sad to see the beautiful days go but I gotta tell you, it makes two long tech days easier to get through if you aren’t yearning for the sunshine outside! (Besides, I already had to go out and buy cooler clothing and now my suitcase is going to be overweight for the return flight.)
And our tech went really well. You know you have a fantabulous team when you get through the show fast enough to have time for scene work on Saturday night and get in two solid dress/tech runs on Sunday. It looks and sounds BEAUTIFUL!!! The story telling continues to grow and strengthen. Now it should get “stronger, faster, bigger, better”!!
Tomorrow is our first audience and it is a “Pay what you want” so it could get VERY interesting! Alice joins us tomorrow as well so I am anxious to get her response.
We open this weekend and then I am back to LA. Actually, on to Laguna Beach to assist Martin Bergman on his and Rita Rudner’s new comedy TICKLED PINK at Laguna Playhouse. Thanks tons to Annie Wareham for bringing me in on the project. I can’t wait to work with Martin and spend several weeks at the beach! Thaw out after Maine, right?
Cheers to all!
