I am so happy with my cast. I finally have a full cast. I have yet to meet the guy playing Vincentio, but he comes from Nick (the good producer), from whom I got Josh, so I trust him completely. Mike Steger joined the cast as Petruchio this evening, and (to my mind) fit right it. I am sure he will take some getting used to from the rest of the cast, but he's supposed to be a little bit of a strange phenomenon in this beach town I have created. I think Mike is going to be very very funny. He, at least, will listen to what I have to say and follow my direction. I am happy.
We had fun again tonight, and I am crazy-busy doing shit on the stage. I am directing like a madman. There is so much business! Matt and Josh came up with a great joke involving Matt's cane, which he brought of his own volition (!).
I had a conversation with Greg in the parking lot on the way out of rehearsal, then I called Ashley on the way home and we talked character.
Things are going to be okay with this show. I have a cast that I like and that is a thing that is hard to come by.
