SAT, July 21
We had a fabulous opening performance Friday afternoon. The cast made Darius’ arrangements shine. The staging was smart and sexy. I heard comments like ‘This is better than anything I saw in the Fringe last year – and I went to 30 shows.’ ‘I’ve got to see this one again.’ ‘Fantastic.’ ‘Truly funny.’ Music to our ears.
Then Nelson Pressley of the Washington Post asked “so where has this show played before?”
They were seeing our second run-thru. When we showed up at Source for tech rehearsal at 11:30 Friday morning we had never run the show from front to back. Got in one run-thru, where we discovered we had a 45 minute show, Michael Bobbitt made some last minute tweaks, cast took a short water break, while the house opened, and we were on!….
Photos coming tomorrow.
