8. First Time Director: Final Rehearsal Before Showtime

November 11, 2010

It has all come together.

At the final rehearsal, the play lit up in a way I had never seen before. Francis entered, not from stage right, but from the chilling blast of the Arctic wind sweeping the ice outside his ship. He opened the letter as if for the first time. Sophy relaxed her haughty reserve just enough to finally reach through his dementia to touch his heart.

And the director’s. . .

Tomorrow night, the world (at least 45 seats worth) gets to share the experience.

    If I were in Marin I’d definitely see your play! I just read all the posts–your vivid description of your staging and directing experience is wonderful. Makes me feel like I’m there. Congratulations!
