Two Rehearsals Left

I realised tonight there are only two rehearsals left of Blithe Spirit before Preview.
Holy crap that’s a bit scary.

I’m knackered, doing the show the way we have has meant I’ve had to rework things a few times. Nothing major, but enough for me to notice that the process is drawn out more than I’m used to. Typically I’ll attend rehearsals for a few weeks to a month, watch what’s going on, see the blocking unfold, giving me an understanding of when, where, and  why the actors will be, so I can design the plot in my head and on paper. The Sunday before a Friday or Saturday opening is usually when I get to rig, focus and start plotting. Not so with this one. The extra time in the venue has been good in that I get a chance to play a bit and get an understanding of how I can make things work in this space, but what it’s also meant is I was rigging and focusing before I have the full understanding of what the whole show looks like. The resulting rework though, by and large, hasn’t been too much of a hassle, it seems I’ve done lots more work, when the reality is I’ve done about the same, just stretched it out a lot longer.

We’re close, very very close. I have a load of work to do on the weekend to get things ship shape. From now on we have to run it as if it’s a real show. Tomorrow night I’ll be sorting through my endless lists of notes of things that need doing, doing some of them, resolving not to do others), marking up the Sound and Lighting scripts, fixing portraits and generally getting my shit together. Tonight we lost a dimmer channel (twas an almighty pop, none of the smoke got out though) which is a right pain in the rectum, but fingers crossed it’ll be solvable before opening, either that or I’ll be reprogramming the desk, of course it would have to be one of the channels that is in almost every fucking cue.

On the whole Im really happy with how tonight came together. It could have been a lot lot worse. One more practise run, then Sunday we have to nail it.
