Looking so great in dress rehearsal. Hope you can make it!
They got the goods…
Really fun to watch it come together. Loads of photos on Flickr, please check it out.
Here are a few of the sets and actors all combining talents and energies to come up with a magic production.
Have had the privilege to catch some rehearsals for “The 39 Steps” — a table read and a walk through — and that cast is killing it. So to speak. That’s a joke. Btw.
Seriously, though, one of the best things about the theater thing is when the actors take that step from being, like, regular people in t shirts and sneakers and normal hair and faces, and start reading — and they BECOME the characters. They mutate: accent, posture, attitude.
So there we are in the “living room,” or whatever you call a space with old sofas and a dirt cheap soda machine in a basement, and these four folks go from weary after workers to: clowns! a debonair Brit on the run! a vamp!
And they do it well. Very well. What reads as an odd sort of funny farcical version of a Hitchcock play suddenly comes to life. Very funny, very cutting, very fast life.
