Hiya! Things are lookin' pretty good. I say that after many times today
thinking I'd have a different report for you. But, at the end of the day,
I think I can safely say we'll be okay. We finally recorded the final
tracks and will get those to the cast tomorrow (or so I'm told, at this
point I'm not sure whether or not to believe things like this...).
We cue to cued this evening and that went as well as a cue to cue can
go. We got through it in under two hours. For a 25 minute show (plus
four or five minutes of 'Pirate Jenny' in act two) that's nice.
I've gotten several private emails from people who plan on coming to see
Threepenny. What's so cool about that is these
are people who have somehow found out about the show on their own. Yes, you
heard it here first, people who I don't know, people who are not involved wi
th the production, aren't friends or relatives or crew or cast members...
real people are coming to see this show!
I'm going to Great America with some of my Into the Woods cast tomorrow.
That should be fun. I haven't been to Great America in years. And it'll
be another chance to get to know cast members. Speaking of Woods
and cast members, it appears Dax will indeed be joining the cast,
playing Rapunzel's Prince. I'm pretty happy about this. As well,
Jackie (the director) is attempting to get us a better theatre (smaller
and more intimate, already equipped with lights and sound, fixed reserved
seating). So, things look good with that show.
And now, I sleep.
