In the afternoon had a photo shoot with Judi (Prospero) for the promo material. So. Much. Fun. Our design team is just wonderful to work with. I am totally in love with my costume and make-up!
Afterwards I had time to either wash my face and go straight to rehearsal, or get dinner and go straight to rehearsal. I chose food, and I chose the close-by and super quick Chipotle. Chipotle is set-up so that during busy periods (ie. dinner) you'll be served by approximately six people. Every single person stared at my insane hair and make-up (not very common for Fort Collins), and not a single person asked why I was wearing insane hair and make-up. I smiled insanely at every single server, grabbed my burrito, and spirited away up College Ave as fast as my little blue bicycle would take me!
At rehearsal, we ran Act 1. Fudged the “sailors under hatches stowed” line. Grr. Also remembered at the end of the act that I was supposed to incorporate more laughing. Damn. Otherwise a good run.
Denise talked about the poetry and music of the language, and not being afraid of it -
“Don’t go into fear, go into love. Let the poetry be music”. I love this.
