There are times where I unfailingly believe that we’ve all bit off more than we can chew as far as completing the set and compiling all the props and costumes, but then I take a water break, and walk back into Harbach, I unfailing do a double take at the amazing thing we’ve created. With our own two hands, mind you! It’s a lot, but every hour we come closer to completing one of the most elaborate and grandest sets in Knox’s history and that feels amazing to be a part of.
With Secret wrapping up it's cue-to-cue and tech rehearsals today, the company gears up for Neverwhere's cue to cue on Saturday. I took a peek at the sound cues on Dakota’s, our sound designer’s, computer. There were over 100 of them. I asked if that was a big number and he said he usually works on show that have a little over 20, SO, that’ll be a blast and a half incorporating into the show. If we thought that the set was a lot to take on, I don’t think any of us are mentally prepared for the focus and stamina that will be necessary for a productive cue to cue. We just have to remember, that we love this. We choose this. And it will absolutely be worth it. Come see RepTerm! We deserve an audience after all this hard work...
and tech week, hit me with your best shot!
