The first week of being in two places at the same time went off very smoothly and so far according to plan. Week 2 kicks off tomorrow, after everyone breathes a bit today on Memorial Day. We've got Cotton Patch Gospel at Totem Pole Playhouse staged and ready to rock out. Tuesday night we tweak in the new sound system and then roll from there. We had a first run last night after a long day of rehearsal and things seem to be in good shape as we head to that opening night on May 30.
Back at Wayside Theatre, we spent all day Saturday blocking all the book scenes in Man of La Mancha and accomplished that goal in good time. This week we do musical staging and that will both speed up and slow things down a bit as we move forward. The reality here is that we've got a structure to the piece, not we work on smaller junks, and then hopefully next Sunday we'll be able to pull it all back together heading into the final week.
So far so good.
