The play officially premiers Thursday. And no, it’s not a musical. And no, I had no idea what I was in for. Looking back now I believe that’s a good thing. If you’d tried to tell me, I wouldn’t have believed you. I never do. I’m an experiential learner. Besides, who would have believed this?
You’ll sit in costume, in the near dark, for 14 hours a day, for a week solid.
You’ll get a stomach ache from nervously eating so many Altoids.
You’ll understand the meaning of the term “tech rehearsal.”
You’ll move at the painfully slow place required to button up every detail, from the positioning of the stage lights, to debating the color of your pants (white, or off-plum? Plum).
You’ll never be so tired and so thrilled at the same time.
You’ll never see so many creative minds coming together on a daily basis.
Your knees will knock at the top of the first song at Sunday’s preview.
You’re in for the biggest adventure of your life.
