Here we are again, opening night. I missed you after the last production ended abruptly just weeks from performances. This one, though, is here and ready.
I’ve been wondering lately, are we ready? Am I ready? There’s this rush that comes from having an audience. It’s all happening so soon.
Only, not soon. This show has been in rehearsals for nearly four months. Too long. A fellow actor and I were discussing it, and believe that some of the cast may be suffering from burn-out. It’s hard to keep the needed energy for that long.
But, an audience tonight will let us know how we’ve done.
And then, it’ll be off to the next one.
