On its Feets...all ten of them
Messiah is all staged and the cast has really impressed me with their openess and willingness to adapt to a new take on this work. They have really taken to this style of staging, which is unconventional at the least, and I'm very pleased with the result that is starting to take shape. Today we even had strangers asking to sit in on the rehearsal. The challenge with staging something this quickly is that it becomes easier for the staging to disappear from the memory. The next several days will be dedicated to getting it really natural and organic to the performers. Saturday morning we will have a private workshop performance of the piece. There isn't any other new to report on...that keeps me pretty constantly busy. I hope to blog some soon on Ground.
