Cast called: Dan, Greg, Zuriel, Josh, Brittney, Ashley, Matthew, Jensen, Michael, Shawn, Katie, Kevin, Sachi, Cyn
Late: Michael (10 min); Greg (again... that’s 3 days in a row). I talked to Greg after rehearsal about his continued tardiness. I was firm.
I blocked Act Five in its entirety today and then we ran it at least 3 times. I told the actors that the next time I call Act Five I don’t want them to have books in-hand. At 10:00p, Michael, Brittney and I blocked Petruchio and Kate’s first meeting.
Stage Management: Shannon and Vanessa were both out today. Vanessa, I would like the cast to have a contact sheet by Monday, now that we have a full cast.
Sets: The piano is still on stage. Right now we have it pushed into the up-left corner and it is serving as the bar. I would like 2 barstools and a table and chairs as soon as can be. They don’t need to work for the show: they just need to be rehearsal-level items.
Electric: Nothing at this time.
Makeup: Nothing at this time.
Costumes: Inez would like to have a meeting with all of us.
Properties: Nothing at this time.
Sound: Sade is not such a good idea for pre-show, in my opinion. I would prefer more upbeat sounds. I love Sade, but she’s not the happiest of singers.
Publicity: Is there an update on publicity? John, you had said you wanted to talk to the actors about ticket sales. Would you like Vanessa to schedule a time after or before a rehearsal when you can do this?
