It's Opening Night

After two weeks of rehearsals (the last two of which were twelve hour days), the show is set to open this evening.

I can hear you now: "Your show is opening on a Tuesday? What's that about? Did you take stupid pills this morning, AC?"

The answer to the basic issue posed by the previous three questions is that the theatre that is putting the show on is part of a resort which tends to be filled with vacationing folk who still reminisce about the "Great War" in their day to day conversations. These folks are looking to be entertained on a Tuesday night with a classic musical, and we are just the people to do the entertaining. It's a good thing that there's not a bingo hall close by, or we'd face some serious competition.

But seriously, it's a great show, and it's going to be a great run. Believe me, legs will be broken, and I mean that in the good, theatrical way.

A day late but I hope lots of legs were broken in that good theatrical way!

Thanks very much to both of you. It went very well, other than a minor scene change issue where a few techies were left dashing for the safety of off-stage as the lights unexpectedly came up.

You know, if techies are hit with a spotlight, they melt.

Continue the leg breakage.
