More blocking yesterday. All day. Although, I must admit, it was a great rehearsal. We're getting into 'crunch time' despite the inordinantly long rehearsal period. This is a show that swings every club in the bag. High comedy to kitchen sink drama to flat-out farce. It's quite a journey, to say the least.
Yesterday was especially beneficial to me (aside from the very necessary blocking, of course) because it gave me a place to start, physically speaking, with this very long and very hard song, Zero's Confession. Until yesterday, I didn't quite know what Ron had in mind for it. Now I do, and I must say, it's absolutely riveting. In fact, it's such a powerful image, I won't even write about it. Don't wanna ruin the sight of it if someone comes to see this.
Also got to sing it while blocking it, which was very helpful.
Long day today. Meeting with the director and producer of From the East to the West this morning, we're blocking out one of the scenes for the cameras. Then an audition for a short film this afternoon and then, of course, rehearsal all night.
I was asked to send, via email, some photographic images of myself to our graphic designer for the show this past weekend. She is in Europe and yesterday sent back our flyer/poster for the show. She's done a very striking, yet unflattering likeness of me for it. I'll post it as soon as it's completed.
Tons more to write about today, but I'm afraid I'm pressed for time. I'll catch up tomorrow.
See you then.
