Going back into Captain Overlord's Folly rehearsal today, working The Invitation at night. Same thing tomorrow. Then Friday we pack it up and fly over to Edinburgh for six days. While there, we drink much whiskey, catch up with friends and present a "workshop" showing of Overlord on the 19th and 20th. Home on the 21st, out to Pennsylvania on the 22nd and then into The Invitation technical rehearsals, opening the show down at the Ohio the first week of September.
No sleep til Brooklyn and all that.
I'll sleep in September.
Had our "Blood Night" for The Invitation last night. Not to give anything away, but holy Gob there's some blood in that show. Wanted the actors to feel what it was like looking around the room and doing a scene with someone drenched in blood.
It's different, we discovered.
And must send random props out to Oliver Butler. Saw Robert Lyons' Red Haired Thomas at the Ice Factory last weekend and the direction was outstanding. Oliver did Hostage Song at the Kraine a while back and everyone told me I had to see it and of course I didn't as I hate going to the theater. Really wish I had caught it.
Well done, Oliver. I'll look out for your next show.
First I've got to talk to some killer clowns, mix up some blood and find my passport.
