tech week

Well, we've finally moved out of the barn in Weston and are officially set in our new space at the Boston Center for the Arts. I was in the Roberts Theatre from 8am to 11pm today working on getting lights hung, flats up, set spiked, and lights focused. I climbed a 20ft. scaffolding and used a drill, and I feel very manly right now.

It was a great day, and if I could figure out how to download pictures from my camera I could show you what three of my castmates look like doing "the Dolphin" in unison (we were all a bit punchy by the end...).

I'm excited to be moving into the next phase of this production--and performances are only two days away. But the closer we get to opening, the more I feel anxiety that the end is drawing near. I'm going to be very sad to say goodbye to this cast and this play. It's been such a fulfilling process and I'm definitely not ready to let it go.

Of course, I'm getting a bit ahead of myself. I think I'm just going to try to be present in every moment we have together--on stage and off--from here on out.

Hi Summer,
Just wanted to take the opportunity to say "Break a leg". I'm sure that both you and the production will be fabulous!
