Yes, Scout, we’re moving again.
Soon, I have to start packing everything up. Again.
Patience, Claudia, patience.
I’m just hoping that Little Miss Scout adapts to this new apartment. For someone who didn’t want to deal with the hotel and the walk to the park from here, I’ve actually grown to like it. So I’d be perfectly happy staying here, but I’m sure the theater would not be in favor of paying the room fee for another three weeks. There are four other members of the company staying here, as well. We all move today.
The section of the park that is directly across the street from the apartments is busier, a lot more people and dogs walk through that area, which is good and bad. Lots of dogs in the apartment building, as well. Oh, Scoutie, are you ready for another adventure?
We had our first run-through of Hamlet yesterday and it went very well, considering most of the actors have been in rehearsal for only two weeks. Two weeks! Hamlet is one of the greatest plays ever written and the actors playing Hamlet and Claudius have massive amounts of text to memorize. That in itself is a little miracle. It’s going to be very good. We have another week in the rehearsal studio and then we move onstage next Saturday. Don’s production of Our Town starts previewing this week and opens on October 15th. Different plays, different schedules. But, we’re both working at the same time. I have to remind myself of that. It’s a good thing.
Thanks so much for all the wonderful and insightful comments on yesterday’s post.
More later. Have to get going!
