mark, my words

April 6, 1998

T minus one day and counting. Wednesday night is the beginning of Threepenny's tech rehearsal week. The four shows open on the 16th. We're supposedly recording music again Wednesday morning, just in time for our crew run through. I just hope it works out and everything is okay. It's pretty much the last thing I have to do... soon things are out of my hands. That's not as easy as it may sound. This project has been my "baby" since early December. Four months later I have to let go, step back, and see the product of all the work...

The little things that I have to get done are coming together, slowly. I don't know why it has to be so difficult to get hold of people. I leave messages on answering machines, with human beings, pagers, I send smoke signals, and release carrier pigeons. But, no, it's still impossible to reach someone you need to talk to when you really need to talk to them. I'm bitter.

Woods is going well. Lines are close to being learned. Now it's more just needing rehearsal time to flesh things out. Unfortunately I stop rehearsing on Wednesday, just in time for Threepenny tech. Then Notre Dame has their spring break the week of Threepenny's run. Here's hoping that show falls together when everyone gets back just in time for that tech week.

I'm blowing up red balloons about this possible New York gig. For those of you who don't know what I mean by "red balloons" and have this huge urge to find out, email me. I assume most of the people reading this already know. Anyway, no news about it yet. When I know more and can say more, you'll know...
