I keep telling myself – Monday, auditions start. Monday, Odd Couple starts being something that’s “more real”. Monday, other people beyond the merry band of crazies start believing in this idea as well.
After Tuesday’s workshop, as my technical director, lighting designer, photographer & stage manager were there, we wound up having an impromptu discussion about some of the set design ideas. I have some very pie in the sky desires and floated them out to see what technical solutions might be had. What was interesting for me was that I wasn’t immediately laughed out of the room and told flat out no. Now – we see if they can make those pie in the sky concepts actually possible, but the way the discussion went, right now, the technology is the only limitation. If they find the machine will fill the space desired, then we’re golden. Or at least a very nice pyrite.
I’m also doing last minute finishing to my notes about costumes & props and the like. When I get the finalised set design, I’ll be able to finish up the blocking notes.
It’s getting close.
I can’t wait to see who comes to auditions…
