I thought I’d show you a couple of pictures I took at rehearsal last night.
“What!” you say. “Who wants to see that? I came here because I thought you’d talk about interesting like that Vick post or updates on the big sites–”
But remember, I just got a new camera phone, so I’ve gone back to taking photos of everything! It’s like when I show you 209 photos of my dogs or looking at 147 photos of a baby smiling the exact same way and then you find out the kid had gas. This is better though because there’s only 2 pics… and I think everyone is gas free.
Here’s John! I caught him right before he gave me that hand gesture that says how much he loves me. He does that a lot in photos. In case you missed it a couple of posts ago, it looks like this:
We’re playing a husband and wife in this show: Paul and Penny Sycamore. It’s such a joy to work with us in a show, as our friend Suzanne, who’s directing, could tell you. Last night, for example, I crossed the stage to stand near John during a scene. The WHISPERED conversation went something like this:
Me: Suzanne wants me to come to you at some point in this scene. I think this will part is good because it refers to the big discussion we (our characters) had a minute ago.
John: I’m supposed to interact with Alice soon.
John: So go back over there until Suzanne tells you to come over here.
Me: She did tell me to come over here!
John: Oh… you said you picked this spot to cross over.
Me: I said she told me to find a spot! Stop directing me!
John: I am not directing!
Suzanne stopped the scene at this point, laughing, and told the 2 actors doing their scene that she had to stop because “I have an insurrection going on over here.” I thought we had been quiet. Maybe I shouldn’t have hit John with my script; that might have kept our “discussion” under the radar.
