After round 2, the piece garnered a fair amount of smack talk because it was seen as too templated. They've mixed it up—added some variables for themselves and included the audience more. Because of the template, it would be easy for the performance to get big and loud and become more about moving from signpost to signpost than about relationships and reactions. So we'll spend some time on scenework and give and take.
Right now, I'm way more nervous about my ability to tech the show than theirs to play it. Doing sound is not where I'm most comfortable—so it's weird to be working from iTunes in a cue-heavy show.
I can't wait to see the show tonight. These are fun groups to watch...and they'll be playing for a full house.
Plus, I kinda want to prove Alan wrong.
