So today we had the first of our rehearsals to FINALLY finish Architecting. YAY!!! We are chomping at the bit to bring it to NYC audiences as part of the 2009 Under the Radar Festival at the Public, and then a transfer to P.S.122. But actually I have to say this is an incredible part of the TEAM process because so often during the majority of our work we are so busy writing that we almost never get to actually…how do you say…rehearse?
It’s a delight for all of us to sort of sit back in to the disciplines by which most of us define ourselves (director, actor, etc.) and work on the play which – by November 30th will be in what we call “lock-down.” Now as Matt our Sound Designer will tell you with a smirk, this is a lie. But we are getting better and better at switching hats.
Act 1 seems to be in good shape, and I think we’re on the verge with Act 2 of really seeing through the propositions of Act 1. With a project as massive as Architecting this is certainly the major challenge.
