I've been busy with work this week, thank goodness (and thank ctan!), so I haven't had much of a chance to post, but I can't tell you how excited I am about my Bare Bones tomorrow night.  Working on this play has been such a joy; we've all had fun doing research on the characters and literary references and historical era, and every rehearsal someone has something new and exciting to share.  I've never worked on a show before where everyone was eager to do so much work, in addition to the internal work of really exploring the characters and making them as full and rich and real as possible.  We had the best rehearsal last night, when we were finally at the point where I could put down my script and just sit back and watch them and listen.  They made me laugh harder than ever, and there were even a few tears at one point.  I'm looking forward to the dress rehearsal tonight and getting to see it onstage, and I'm twitching with anticipation for tomorrow night, when a full audience gets to enjoy it.  Yay!

You know how you worry before you introduce a new partner to your friends, for fear they won't see in him all the things that you do?

I got to introduce an audience to 84 Charing Cross Road tonight -- and thankfully, they fell in love with it as much as I did.  I sat in the dark theatre and listened to them getting caught up in the story and living it along with the characters, until I myself got too caught up in it to pay attention to anything other than what was happening on stage.

I'm so very proud of my actors, and frankly proud of myself, too, for all the work I've done and the decisions I've made that helped this production to be what it is.  And I'm so grateful for a wonderful group like T@F that provides a supportive environment to have experiences like this.  I cannot wait until tomorrow night to do it for a hopefully full house!
