Rehearsal rehearsal

So what have we learned thus far?

  • Multiple people calling out "Don Pedro is approaching" is far more funny than one person doing so

  • Don Pedro thinks he's a Southern Baptist Choir all in one

  • Mike as Don John is a really, really good sport...because when Ryans are finally allowed to hit someone, they enjoy it

  • Gayle as Hero taught us the joy of a slooooooooooooow burn

  • I can't wait for the reversible arm band-y thingies

  • "Ooooohs" and "Aaaaaaaahs" add so much to a scene!

  • It is possible to be off-book by day two: provided you're swordfighting at the same time

  • It is also possible for the directors to leave before 9:15 p.m. (yaaaaaay!)

  • To dance manly, you need straight arms

  • Sometimes, it's helpful to have a Father with a replica of an original Star Trek phaser

  • And, for Jess, the very quickly edited Brigadoon funeral dance

    Mood: Busy busy
    Music: "Run" by Snow Patrol
    Thought: Forget Boston in the the Spring it's gorgeous
    AND! Midsummer Night's Dream is this year's Shakespeare on the Common. I am so there. Huzzah!
