Today, we made it through the show for the first time. Starting at the top, we went through scene by scene and tried to assess the state of things. When all was said and done, I think it looked pretty darn good. Yes, there is lots of work to be done still but we are in a great place, considering we still have two and a half weeks of work time left and nobody has had a nervous breakdown or "artistic difference" with the show. I get the feeling all the players want to make this the best show we can and are all working with that in mind. It may come as a surprise to some of you out there in Bloglandia to discover that this is, tragically, not always the case. The machine is humming along and yes, there are many rows still left to hoe, the crew seems ready for the task and making great things each and every day.

Yes, the running time was a little longer than ideal but hey, it was a first run through. If we left it right now, it would be suitable for a Lincoln Center kind of Euro import thing that you watch over the course of a couple of days with box lunches provided. It is not at its fighting weight at all, but is just in training and will in two weeks' time, be lean and mean and ready for action. I was proud of everyone that we all made it through and with a minimum of stoppages and no disasters.

Go Team Super Vision!

More partying detritus on the bridge today. I guess Thursday night is a good night to hang up there above the river and pound back a few tall Buds, smoke some Newports and contemplate the nature of life in the big sparkly city. Maybe we should consider having our cast and crew wrap party up there. I will pose it to the group.

peace, togetherness and malt liquor,
