A very successful first week of previews is behind us. Last night's audience was by far the most effusive. We even got some mid-scene applause! Henry, Ellen, and I had a debriefing session on the set (Joe's living room is much more comfy and cozy than the Green Room at The Duke!) after the yesterday's evening performance. We all agree that the show is in good shape. Ellen is going to make a few more revisions- cut one or two lines, and swap a word here and there- but it seems likely the actors will have the final, final version of the script by Tuesday. We rehearsed every day this week in addition to all of our preview performances, so I am sure everyone is very much enjoying their day off (while celebrating their Mothers, of course)!
