Play and workshopping

Today was the final show of Negotiations. It went really well, even though our set broke once again while they brought it out. It wasn’t as bad as last time though and they fixed it quick. It’s just a 3 sided structure with a different thing on each side and it’s hinged together so it’s easier to move, but if you close it too much the hinges pull out. Oh well, they got it fixed.

So yeah, the show went great. We were last this time, so I’m not sure if the house was still full after intermission. Several surprise friends showed up I didn’t expect to be there, so that was super awesome. And now I’m done with that. Yay! It was fun, but I think I’m more inclined to film stuff than theater. I like my acting like i like my men … I like doing something once and being done with it. Just kidding. About men, not acting. I thought it sounded funny though.

Then this weekend there were 2 workshop sessions for the pilot. We came up with a lot of good ideas on how to restructure the script to be more efficient. The writer/producer is letting us take a crack at some writing and we’re all really stoked. We’re meeting this week and then we’ll bring our result in to the next meeting with him to see what he likes and what he doesn’t like. I am really digging the collaboration with this group. I think we’re all on the same page and we all understand the writer’s vision for the story and tone. I’m pretty excited about it. This will likely shoot in early/mid October. That’s the goal.
