Onto The Second

First weekend of performances are in the can, along with all the Critic viewings.  Hopefully this will feed lots of good press to the masses and bring more butts in the seats for the coming weeks. 

…Intimate Sunday audience today, first of the four talk-backs to follow the show. People seem to be interested in the show’s history, and the fact that a nearly 80-year-old play has so much to offer in today’s contemporary world.  In short: people don’t change.  It works for Shakespeare…it works for Hellman…it’ll work 100 years from now. 

…Meanwhile, we’ve three weeks left to explore and work together before we scatter once more to the winds. And, I intend on enjoying the hell out of it…sweating, snotting, and crying all over the Dobie-Wright School For Girls.

Thanks to the peeps who chose to visit us this week and help teach us more about the timing and impact of the words we say…and the words we don’t. With each moan of sympathy, inhale of surprise, whisper of accusation, and spit of rage we hear coming from the yous, it feeds us even more and fuels the fire to burn even brighter.

So thanks for that.

…And thanks ahead of time to the audiences that follow.

Class dismissed, til Thursday.

Hope to see you ’round, after that 🙂
