So it’s July the 4th, and I have been out of commission for a bit. Things are getting hairy in the rehearsals for Shakespeare, and in my head I am screaming my face off with panic, but my exterior is smilely and peppy. I have been building sets with my fellow actor who is also the playwright, producer, and set designer for the show. Mr. Craig Engen. He is a great fella and I have learned a ton of new things as I have never quite helped to build an actual set before. So it’s been eye opening and difficult. Especially in this HEAT!! Dear Mr. Sun, CAN YOU CUT IT OUT ALREADY? Thank you. Sincerely, j.
Second weekend of Breaking Up is complete, and it was a decent size crowd. Listening to the sound check on Friday night, I could tell that things were going to be awesome. During opening there were a few times when the band overpowered the cast, but with the new adjustments, the band could play full blast and make you feel like you were at a concert. And according to the response on after that opening number, you could tell it was going to be faboo!!
I will be back on in a few days with some new info and hopefully a new podcast!
