There is a moment in the show I'm working on (that opens tonight) at the end of act I when small gold mylar discs rain down from the sky. The discs are about 3/4" in diameter and you can feel them if they land on you, but they don't hurt. This director is overly fond of dropping things from the sky, but I have to admit this one looks pretty damn cool.
The director keeps referring to it as the "gold shower".
I giggle every time. No, the director has no idea of the other meaning of that phrase.
And as I explained to the light board op yesterday, I'm certainly not going to correct him. It's way too much fun to giggle at him instead.
