I made you out of clay.
Tomorrow night is the preview show. (doors 7.30pm at The Shed, 26 Langside Avenue, Glasgow. Tickets available on the door). The first public performance of In Utero. How am I feeling? Nervous. Excited. Terrified. Hopeful. Usual, really.
So today was our last rehearsal, and you know what? It was not too bad at all. In fact, it was rather dandy. I’m feeling rather confident. But not too confident, nah, just the right amount.
Today we worked on scene transitions, which is something I’ve never done before. Scene finished, bang move this, bang move that, bang, bang, bang, next scene starts. It was like a beautifully choreographed ballet. Except myself and Amir aren’t dancers, so it was more of a….let’s say….children’s dance routine. Yeah , good metaphor girl. I mean, it was good, we got them done in time, correctly and smoothly. We gonna be sorted.
I haven’t done much theatre so this was something I hadn’t even considered needed to be done. Heavy lifting? Me? I’m an actor, daaaaahling. Manual labour? No, no, no. But sadly it was manual labour? Yes, yes, yes. At least now I’m a total tank and I can take on anyone. Even Arnold. Especially Arnold.
I did have a terrible dream about the preview show last night. Basically, I decided to jsut sit out and watch it, and made the director play my part. I mean, I’m the boss, I can do that. However, having my male director playing a pregnant female didn’t really work and the show bombed. I’m hoping this doesn’t happen tomorrow. But you never know!
