This week closed out two projects that I've been working on for weeks. On Tuesday, Noel & Company's "Ghosts" kicked off the beginning of their Eva Le Gallienne Festival. It was a great experience -- equal parts scary and satisfying for me. I made a few mistakes as stage manager that night. But, then the crazy-enthusiastic applause that the audience gave at the end of the night...? Well, shoot, I was so grateful for that.
On Friday night, I worked on the Tenebrae service for my church. I directed the readers for the service this year. I was also cast with Fred to extinguish candles throughout the performance. We were hilariously labeled as "candle-snuffers" in the program.
(...that just sounds so dirty...)
My grad class on the philosophy of technology ended this week. Yaaaaay! It was a really great class - interesting classmates and lots of enthusiastic discussion, but it was SO MUCH WORK.
** read "Warrior Class" by Kenneth Lin - a new play.
**watched "Taking Woodstock" - I don't know what I was expecting with "Taking Woodstock" I guess, based on the sound of the title, a silly comedy? Of course, that was before I knew it was directed by Ang Lee. Anyway, Demetri Martin is great and I've been following his comic work for years, so it was great to see his dramatic side. And....Liev Schreiber: girl, please. You are fantastic.
