Saturday rundown

Started rehearsals for The American Clock today, which I’m directing at Michigan State University!

It’s a wonderful challenge, and the cast and production team are going to be great to work with.  Today was a lot of fun.  It’s always exciting to start a new project, and this one is no exception.  The script is very collage-like, with lots of scenes depicting life into, through, and out of The Great Depression.  It’s extremely relevant to the current state of the world, and I think we’re going to make a very moving show that audiences will really relate to!  Just the staging of it is the kind of challenge I love, and working with the student actors, crew and designers is a treat.

"If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours."  – Henry David Thoreau  (1817-1862)

In other news:
-We start rehearsals for Blue Door at the Williamston Theatre on Tuesday, and I’m really excited about having that beautiful show in our space.

-Poor Maggie has been sick for 4 days, she’s got a sore throat and fever and is just miserable.  The doctors say it’s just a virus, and the only cure is to keep her comfortable, cool and hydrated.  Boooh.  One of the single worst feelings on the planet is that of a parent who can’t help their sick child. 

-Amazingly, I start teaching my class at MSU on Wednesday!  This Summer ended much quicker than I expected!
