Whew. We’ve had a fun, but very hard first week of rehearsal on Unnecessary Farce. This play is packed with so much action that we spent what seemed like an eternity blocking what would turn out to be 10 seconds of stage business. All good stuff and the show is blocked.
The play is so funny, that I think the cast is auditioning for a remake of the Carol Burnett Show the way they keep cracking up, and I have to admit, they are cracking me up as well. We had a newspaper photographer in today to snap shots for a pre-opening article, and he was cracking up as well. Everyone is having a good time and working their tails off.
They’ll hate me next week though as we have to drill and drill in order to get the timing just right.
