This week I joined the circus. Rehearsals started Wednesday for Stand Up Eight, the show I’m currently working on and talked about here. The title refers to the Japanese proverb, ‘fall down seven – stand up eight.’ There won’t be any terrified trapeze for me this time. We’ve got two and a half weeks to go from script to opening night.
The short rehearsal span is really nothing new. You just need to be super focused and uber organized. Super focused and uber organized are my middle names. Really they are. Ask my parents.
It’s going to be hard work but it’s hard work being the utmost creative. You know, boo hoo to me. I have to be ‘creative.’ It’s been an interesting couple of months seeing the pieces fall into place and it will be interesting to see the production rise to completion. Stay tuned for updates!
