You might ask, what do you do to prepare for a new show? Excellent question, thanks for asking. Well, the new show is on Thursday, Nov. 10, this week at the Young Centre for the Performing Arts, so today our lighting director Duncan MacMillian and I will go through some of the lighting cues he has programmed for the set and discuss projection for a new video we will be rolling into the show. Our front of house audio engineer Tony Crea made some wonderful recordings of the new show when we were touring it this summer and so I will be making notes today for what we should review in this weeks rehearsals. Morosely we call these tapes, “the black box”, as they reveal our mistakes, none of which were fatal on the dates so far.

We will have a special surprise guest for a couple of the tunes and she is diligently working on her parts. There is some touch-up work to do on the physical set today, which I do not want to tell you too much about, as it is also a surprise…Today we need to confirm the band and crew meal, the equipment delivery and pick up and the schedule for our videographer, who will be recording the show. Oh yeah and must do laundry…

See you Thursday at 8 fresh and clean, at least for the first song.
