We opened up about three cuts today- one in a recit, and two in a quintet. For dramatic interpretation and for story line. Makes sense and adds about 4 minutes to the show in total.
Now if we could just re-open pages 326-329 I'd be a happy camper. Alas...it's almost always cut, and so will remain listed here as well.
Character work is getting trumped by plain old stage business for today with running about, fake falls, double takes, singing under a special, freezes, and generally just trying to figure out how to put this act I finale together!
