This week is the big fun.
It’s all fun, actually.
From my first hearing of this play at our retreat a couple of years ago, I thought, this is fun. And weird. And oh-my-I-can’t-believe-she-did-that.
But this week, tech and opening, are the REALLY BIG fun times for me in the process. Tech is the time to watch the magic happen- to see the hard work of the diverse artists come together in an always surprising, always inspiring way. At this point in my age and career I am lucky enough to be working with the experienced, the proven, the truly talented who have their craft honed and are able to see things in a different way than you or I when we read a script. It’s always a joy.
Opening is the time to celebrate. And share. And say thank you. Thank you to the artists who collaborated with us. Thank you to the InViolets who worked on this show even if they weren’t cast in it. Thank you to our donors who make the show possible. Thank you to our patrons who come to the theater with open hearts and minds, looking to be entertained and affected. Thank you to the Creator, who instills in us humans the need to communicate, to express, and to teach. To tell stories.
It’s almost time to share this one.
