cuts and changes
last night was great- we had rehearsal from 4-6, and it was good, helpful. The show ran just a little over 1.30- that's good- much quicker. Last night i was able to see some stuff I needed to cut and change and tweak and work on. I got to bed late and i woke up early. I did the cuts and e-mailed them to all. I feel better. I feel a sense of satisfaction at getting rid of the muck. i know i have not answered all questions perhaps, but i feel closer. my hope is that the cuts and changes will stream line things for the actors, (and audience!) so that scenes can run without that halting feeling of stop-start. i made subtle changes and maybe i am being optimistic because i hope for big returns on small clarifications. anyway, the good thing is- this development process allows me to do this- give it to the actors and director, have them implement it and see how it goes tonight. i suspect there will be more as the show goes on. have a good day, thank you for calling Parner, Moft and Gape.
