6/16/06 – Well, opening night is upon us. CD pressing continued right up until Wednesday afternoon when we left for Greensburg. Our 4-hour ride out here was uneventful, with the exception of one cool van that we saw. I took a picture, but will have to wait until I get back to post it because I forgot my USB transfer cable.
Yesterday’s rehearsals went well. Our first cue to cue showed that I had to do some serious restructuring of my notes to make sure I stayed with Steve. He made lots of last minute changes and cuts, and percussion is playing larger role than before. Another runthrough, and then a final rehearsal with tech brought us to about 8:00 on Thursday and at that point we felt like we did about as much as we could do.
We’re trying to bring the show closer to 90 minutes, since it was running a bit long. We’re adding an intermission just to be on the safe side. We’ll probably do some cue to cue reviews tonight, but won’t be doing any more full-blown rehearsal in favor of keeping things fresh for tonight.
For those of you in the Bloomsburg area who can’t make it out to the show, the CD will be available shortly via the web, and we’re going to see about bringing the show to the area possibly next year.
