THE TRENCH COAT
« on: July 07, 2010, 12:04:51 AM »

Well, you've read the notes, the notes were very trench coat-like, and now it is time for you to post until the cows come home - they're currently in the trenches with trench mouth and no coats.

I always think of questions to ask on all the other days, but forget them when Wednesday rolls around. I really need to write them down.

Good morning, all! I fell into bed at 10 and slept until 6:30. This morning I've got another session with the McGlinnventory followed by the NYPL. When I get back, depending on the heat, I have a bit of laundry to do, but I may put it off until tomorrow. I also need to contact the airlines about Friday's flight; I'm on a shuttle to Canton and I have no idea which airline is the agent for AirTran Airways!

I'm still against a 2nd printing, but that not my decision.

I have little other news, so I guess I will sign off for now.

Wednesday morning greetings!  Had a good night's sleep in my own bed and woke up thinking about some things I have to do before leaving again on Friday to play in Canton with DR Elmore.  First up, thank you notes for this past weekend and some other things that will require a trip to the post office.

Good morning all. Well as a kid one of my favorite comic strips was Dick Tracy. Attached is a replica of a 9 foot bronze sculpture of Dick Tracy that was dedicated April 11, 2010, in Naperville, Illinois. Tracy is wearing his yellow trench coat, and yes BK he "wears a hat."  I think BK should buy a yellow trench coat.

If you have six actors who know their lines and one actor who doesn't, what do you have?

Blithe Spirit.....

http://www.bannergraphic.com/story/1647679.html

And you can always tell when the lines are gone because the volume drops and the voice becomes almost inaudible......and there's always a reason.....yes not getting the right cue can cause you to skip two pages.....or if someone else in the middle of your ramblings tries to get you back on track.....don't start making up things to "cover" for them.....just learn the damned lines.

It's not disastrous, but it is demoralizing......will not cast her again in anything....live and learn.

We open tomorrow night.

Former Portland Mayor Bud Clark just auctioned off the TRENCH COAT he wore in the famous "Expose Yourself to Art" poster.

This reminds me of a story.

Back in Bellevue, WA, I directed a production of CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF.  There is a scene in the 3rd act where all the characters are on stage, they hear a loud cry of pain (offstage) from "Big Daddy" and they react to it.

At this particular performance, I was standing in the back of the audience...and the loud cry of pain didn't come.  The actors started to ad-lib, because the play couldn't really continue without that cry.

 :o

I rushed out the front door of the theater, ran down to the stage door, opened it, stuck my head in and gave out with the loudest cry of pain that you've ever heard in your life.

The performance continued.

 ;D
