Today's rehearsal was exhilirating. We worked with musicality details for Island. It has a beautiful montage of music from 1920's Shanghai to classical to electronic. When we get to the point in a rehearsal process where we can work on details, I get very excited. The company is always so supportive when I nit pick each scene and each detail. I believe the details are what audiences are ultimately moved by and it takes quite a while to be able to feel secure enough in the overall structure to then work on nuance. Every focus change or gesture becomes more and more important in a work like this.
Can't wait for you to see the show!
