I thought of that headline yesterday. Then I did not write a blog post yet today.
Tonight is dress rehearsal. I don’t like the shoes I found for my character, but the rest of my costume is very nice. We have two ladies working very hard to make everybody’s costume right. I think they are doing a marvelous job.
I’m sorry, I’m a little distracted right now. I got mandated for overtime at work so am pressed for time. I have about an hour to finish this, get in the shower, fix my hair, put in my contacts, get all my stuff together, and get to rehearsal. I looked over my lines once today. Perhaps twice would be better. Oh dear.
On the brighter side, it is Non-Sequitur Thursday during All Roxy All The Time Week. What could be better than a little disjointed babbling about the play? Oh, I know, a lot of things could be better. Only I did not write any of them earlier and I can’t seem to write them right now.
Our rehearsal last night went pretty good. The dialogue in one of my scenes got messed up. The other actor in the scene and I had not noticed, but the stage manager pointed it out to us. After the scene we were both still a little puzzled about what went wrong. Imagine my chagrin earlier today as I was looking over my lines and realized it was MY screw-up. Everybody thinks I am so good at learning lines! I’m mortified!
Then again, that is the excitement of live theatre. Somebody might screw up. It might be me.
Right now I must get in the shower. Otherwise, even if I do know all my lines, I still might stink up the stage. Happy Thursday, everyone.
