Rehearsal

Tough Tech

Today, I took a day off from work to participate in a technical rehearsal of my show for tomorrow's opening night performance.  A professional play would typically have what is called a "10-out-of-12".  That's 10 hours to set your show's lighting and sound cues with a 2 hour dinner break.  In the world of FringeNYC, you're given twice the running time of your show, which for me, is 3 hours.  As you can imagine, that wasn't much.  

To my surprise, the member of my tech team that was there today was not the one who knows how to program light cues.

Beach Rehearsal

Yesterday, my husband insisted that we go to the beach, because of the high humidity.  He gets like that on hot days.  Even though I had something else planned, I decided to make the best of it.  I mean, it IS the beach; that's not exactly the worst place in the world to be on a hot day.

Since my show opens 8/11/12, I can't afford to miss any chances to rehearse.  So I grabbed my script (reading glasses in tow), went into the water up to my ankles and ran my lines.  It always feels great to have your feet in ocean water with something creative going on in your head.
