We had a great preview last night. I think more than a few of us felt strange for the first two scenes – that general oddness of “there are people here watching this again,” but that quickly went away and hit our groove for the rest of the night.
And that’s what previews are for, right? Knock the dust off, or adjust to having real bodies there.
House report shows we had around 50 – which ain’t bad for a preview. Here’s my crossing my fingers that’s a good sign of things to come. A few (or all) sold-out shows this weekend would be fantastic.
I took a few photos in the house during notes after the run, but we only had the works on and my flash was dying, so they’re pretty dark. You can get the idea though.
I’m damn proud of this set. It’s the best we’ve had in a very, very long time. There’s a tremendous attention to detail. In addition to the projector and screen which we invested in, we were loaned several thousands of dollars in coffee bar equipment (THANKS, EVERYTHING ESPRESSO!) and the additional help we brought in really allowed us to do the sort of detail on the set we normally just don’t have the time for.
I’ll try to get a better one in the light tonight. Or, you know, you could come see it yourself …
