What we did

We had a late start to the morning in order to recover from last night’s late dress rehearsal. After a restful morning we dove into rehearsal in the afternoon. We debriefed on the dress and rearranged a few moments. We did some Zumba before spending the afternoon walking a few actors through new tracks. 

Quick and Quotable

  • From the company: 
    • “I can be a strange shape!!!” – Molly

Production Insights 

Going into rehearsal today after our dress in the Blackfriars I was so excited. As RDA Daniel said, the moments that sing really sing. Does the Company have things to adjust and tweak? Of course. Do they have plenty of time to do so and a phenomenal show already? Also yes. Every time they come together they discover something new. I can’t wait to watch the Company perform on Sunday.
