Still not stopping for sleep or food
Hey team. I’m just checking in again in the middle of my marathon of work. Arabian Nights is finished, and opening a week from Friday. We’ve got a lot of work to do in that time, but luckily the cast is very talented, and very devoted, and I think we’re going to open strong (::knocks on wood::), even though we’re opening on Friday the 13th. Check out the Theatre Hopkins web-site for tickets. I’ve also got another job, writing songs for the Baltimore Shakespeare Festival’s production of Twelfth Night. This is the summer of plays for me, and I’m loving it. The production is set in 1920s New Orleans, but we’re not putting up a sign saying ‘New Orleans’ or anything. I think that’s a great way to go, and so far I’m very pleased with everyone I’m working with. This is a lot to write in a short period of time, but honestly, that’s exciting for me. One last thing, we scheduled the Seafarer shoot, and are going ahead with the river at dawn scenario. Managing the truly preposterous number of details involved with a film shoot is a great, but difficult, new experience for me. I am, though, going through metaphorical stress-balls at a rate hitherto unseen on planet earth. Good thing I love my job, and love long hours. I’ll check back in when my blood pressure is enough to form diamonds.
