The theater never sleeps…just last night we closed a fabulous run of BODY AWARENESS and today we are preparing for a design run of OUR CLASS.
* For those who might not be familiar, a design run is a rehearsal about halfway through the process where the entire design team comes in to watch a full run of the show, see how the cast can interacts with their designs and alter it if need be.
Enjoy! ~Becky, Director of Community Outreach & New Media
“Week two comes to an end!
I’m exhausted! We’ve been reading, singing, dancing and staging like mad and are two days away from our design run. Every day I realize more and more how mammoth this play is and how incredibly lucky we are to be at the hands of Derek Goldman. He cares so deeply about this story and is allowing each of us to bring our ideas, passion and talent to each of these complex people. He has this amazing way of speaking fairly
ephemerally about a moment or a character and yet being SO clear. I know exactly what he wants each time he gives me a piece of wisdom about any moment in the play. I trust him and I think that’s allowing me to allow myself to take risks.
This play reads differently on the page than what I’m experiencing. It’s so visceral and full of so much danger, heart, humor and the list goes on. Speaking of humor! We spend a good 40% of rehearsal laughing as an ensemble which is so refreshing and so needed working on this play in particular.
I can’t wait to share it with DC.”
