STN Blog #11: Rehearsal

Christopher Bibby 2

Rehearsal last night was intense. Amongst some great ensemble pieces, we worked on an critical dramatic scene that’s essentially the impetus to change for one of our characters. If it doesn’t work or isn’t convincing, you won’t buy the rest of the show. I re-wrote this scene after the read-through because it was actually a little too harsh (and abrupt). Now that it’s a little smoothed it’s, ironically, more uncomfortable to watch. As always, our actors are doing fine work, finding things between the words.

Next is full re-draft, probably the last extensive one. And next week, you’ll start seeing some video blogs.

Have a great weekend!
