- We finished teching the show yesterday with nine minutes to spare. The director then quickly staged parts 1, 8, & 9 of curtain call (really) and we called it good.

- The run last night went better than it had any right to, though we had a few moments of waiting in silence because an actor got stuck in a change, or was coming onstage still putting things on.

- The work list the director has is epic, and we don't have all that much time left. Fifteen hours of work notes, only three with full crew, and another four if he wants to work the afternoon of opening (dear god please no).

- I arrived at Klutz at 8:30am. I left the theatre at 12:15am. Officially I had two hours of break in there, though part of that time was spent driving from one place to the other. I'm really glad that there are only three days like this.

- J made me a sandwich for lunch yesterday. It was a very yummy sandwich, and awesome that I didn't have to worry about lunch. I kind of asked if he'd do it again after thanking him by text yesterday, and arrived home last night to find him making me a sandwich for today. It's tangible love, yo.

Do not let this boy get away. He's a keeper.

Oh no. I am hanging on tight, he's stuck with me from here on out.

Awww, to J

So this show you are working on seems a mess. Are there repercussions for the director? or does he just get to be this disorganized and repeat this pattern every time he is hired?

Nope, the director of this show is also the artistic director. I would hope he'd stop hiring this costume designer (not bloody likely) or take some responsibility himself, but I don't see it happening.

That sucks. I can see how that would be tireing after years of going through this repeately.

mmm, a sandwich. A boy who makes you yummy lunches. Sounds good!

Sounds like everything is very hectic for you! Good luck with all that :)

Hectic, yes. Hopefully now that we're open things will settle down a little.

mmm, sandwiches.

How did opening go? Was it one of those "by the skin of your teeth" openings?

Yeah, I already thought J was a keeper (I can also vouch for geek boys, IMHO they're the best kind to have around long-term, but I'm biased) but there's another sign. :)

It was fine. The show is still a little sloppy, but it was the cleanest run yet which is all you can really ask of opening. I'm still not fond of it, but the audience seems to be eating it up.

Yeah, J is totally a keeper.
